No, this is not about Blue Bell. Texans love Ben & Jerry’s!
Ben & Jerry’s brought Texans two of their biggest and boldest flavors as part of the ice cream company’s first “Texas Churned” summer tour and asked fans to vote for their favorite.
BarB-Que Peach with its ancho chili caramel swirl and Bourbon Pecan Pie with shortbread cookie pieces were sampled this summer over a four city tour which included Austin, Dallas, San Antonio and Houston. Fans tweeted the truck to stop by, tried the concoctions, and cast their vote online.
Texas has spoken! With 79 percent of the votes, the very first, state-exclusive, Texas-sized flavor is… Bourbon Pecan Pie! This Ben & Jerry’s one-of-a-kind flavor includes a buttery Bourbon ice cream with pecans, shortbread cookie pieces and a whiskey caramel swirl. (Oh, YUM!)
Bourbon Pecan Pie is available in pints (MSRP $4.89) on retailers’ shelves throughout Texas and at Scoop Shops in Plano, San Antonio, Galveston, McAllen, Webster, DFW Airport, Highland Village, Houston and Sugar Land.

Whooo! The UK doesn’t have that one yet! Sounds sweet and gooey!! Mmmm!
Do you guys have Ben & Jerry’s? I can’t wait to taste this flavor!
Yes, we do! We have Phish Food, Chocolate Brownie.. Core flavours, but not Bourbon Pecan Pie… You have more flavours in the American market! The brands people like here are Magnum, Häagen Däas, and Ben and Jerry’s… Walls ice creams are traditionally favourites!
I see! Ok! Magnum just came here a few years ago. I love Häagen Dazs! I have a scoop shop near me. Bourbon Pecan Pie is exclusive to Texas. 🙂 Lucky us!
Magnum favourites of mine,although limited edition, are the pink raspberry, and Marc du champagne ones! You Texans are lucky! Häagen Däas have a love Baileys Irish cream flavour, and my favourite, dulce de leche!
I could be on the wrong track. I’m thinking of the Magnum ice cream on a stick. Maybe different.
Anyway! I love the cookies and cream from Häagen Dazs!
No.. Its the same ice cream! Maybe you don’t have those flavours there, in America. Belgian chocolate Häagen Däas… Always a favourite!
