With the development of Blue Bell’s Dr. Pepper Float flavored ice cream, two legendary Texas businesses are teaming up to combine two classic flavors into one decadent taste.
Announcing the new flavor on Thursday, Blue Bell—which is no stranger to inventive ice cream pairings—described it as “creamy vanilla ice cream swirled together with a Dr. Pepper flavored sherbet.”
New Delicious Treat
John Alvarado, senior vice president of Dr. Pepper brand marketing, said, “Our Texas heritage is so important to us at Dr. Pepper, and we are excited to team up with fellow Texas-born brand, Blue Bell, to create this new delicious treat.” We are eager to offer our followers yet another cool way to enjoy Dr. Pepper.
Jimmy Lawhorn, vice president of sales and marketing for Dr. Pepper Swirl Iconic Flavors, asserted that the tastiest ice cream floats were produced by pouring Dr. Pepper over a few scoops of Blue Bell. I concur, and I’m now debating whether adding two scoops to a soda glass and then adding more Dr. Pepper on top is excessive or just self-indulgent. We shall see.

Limited Edition Product
Pint and half-gallon sizes of the Dr. Pepper Float ice cream, according to Blue Bell, should be available in stores starting on Thursday. However, the company warned customers on Twitter that it might take several days to get the ice cream to all locations. Although ice cream is a limited-edition product, it should be accessible until 2024.
The 22 other states outside of Texas where Blue Bell is currently offered are Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wyoming.
