In the Spring of 2015, we felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in hunger for dessert, and were suddenly silenced. On Monday, December 14th, the Force awakens.
So close, yet so far away...that's a good way to describe Blue Bell Ice Cream's return to Deep East Texas. On November 2nd, the iconic dessert will be making its way into stores within the Phase Two roll out area.
Over the past several weeks, over 140 KICKS 105 listeners qualified to win free Blue Bell Ice Cream for one year -- that's 52 half gallons of the best ice cream there is. Thursday morning, the winner was drawn on the Merrell in the Morning Show.
