Houston Chronicle, by Craig Hlavaty

Soon, Texans in Las Vegas will be able to drown their gambling-loss sorrows with a taste of home. Blue Bell Ice Cream has unveiled plans for a distribution center near the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Nevada. Blue Bell will begin being sold in Las Vegas after March 3, when the operation opens for business. According to Blue Bell reps, they will be offering all the usual flavors to Las Vegans. Why Nevada? Harold Gilson, regional manager for Blue Bell, says that the company received many requests from consumers and grocery store managers to bring the brand to Nevada. "We

Yes, but can you get three Blue Bells to line up on a slot machine anywhere in Vegas?

Our longest-time local ice cream is Fosselman´s. Fabulous. Also v. good is Dreyer´s (founded in Santa Barbara). We like their half fat slow-churned vanilla bean, Scrumptious and less guilt.

I have seen Blue Bell here. Will try it. But the competition is stiff.

Blue Bell is the best I have ever eaten. Their Homemade Vanilla is food for the gods.

It´s available all over Georgia thankfully. It will also make you as fat as a prize-winning hog.

I have shipped Blue Bell ice cream to friends all over the country, just so they can share the deliciousness. The factory will do the shipping in dry ice(3 half-gal minimum, different flavors). Everyone loves Blue Bell. It´s hard to choose a favorite, but White Chocolate Almond might be it or Peaches and Homemade Vanilla in season.

I visited the Blue Bell factory about 4 years ago and asked when they would be coming to Vegas. They said it would be awhile. Finally!!! I can hardly wait. Best ice cream ever!

I think Blue Bell was the originator of the Cookies ´n´ Cream combo.

Love my state´s (un)official ice cream.

Funny story I like to tell: I was one of the first to work as a costumed "tour guide" at a local working ranch/historical park and that summer, Blue Bell wanted film a commercial there. A creek runs through the ranch, and is occupied by several alligator, something the park is quite conscious to tell visitors about. The Blue Bell commercial director made all sorts of plans for his actors to be situated by said creek, with children playing in the water wilst the main actors did their bit for the camera...and the Park manager had to hastily and emphatically tell them they shouldn´t do that..."havent you seen the signs? They say beware of alligators" and the befuddled response was "we thought that was just for show!"

NOOOOOO.

To make the point, one of the film crew lost their puppy to ol´ Fred the Alligator.

They still filmed at the ranch...just no kids playing in the water...

Still a full gallon too.

Blue Bell is best eaten with just a hint of melting around the edges.

My favorites are Homemade Vanilla (with root beer), Moo-llennium Crunch, and Ultimate Neapolitan.

Las Vegas had a great hometown ice cream maker called Leatherby´s in the 80´s. The young´ens would watch those giant churns with noses pressed on glass till the dishes were delivered at table. My home´s best is Orange Pineapple from House Of Flavors in Ludington, Michigan, with Blue Moon the runner-up. Making me hungry, now!

this is one of those threads that could turn into a shootin´ war, some people take their (our) ice cream very very seriously.
I´d nominate at least three regional brands as being superior to Blue Bell.
- Handel´s
= Braum´s
- Marble Slab

BTW, Blue Bunny must not be confused with Blue Bell. Not in the same league at all.
and a local brand on the Ohio-PA-WV line Akenhead

Be still my heart!!! When we lived in Texas and would fly back to visit family there was often a cooler with dry ice, Dutch Chocolate and Homemade Vanilla at our feet!! Blue Bell´s Homemade Vanilla is the only vanilla ice cream that I love to eat plain. Blue Bell is the best ice cream I have ever tasted. And during the season, Peaches and Cream, oh my. Who knows, it could migrate on into California, sigh.

Life-long Texan, moved to North Carolina to help take care of aging mother-in law. I walked into Ingall´s grocery and saw Blue-Bell and thought God is good. Braums not bad but flavor of BB much better. Ben & Jerry-over hyped, over priced, too cutesy of flavors and not that great.

A church in Grapevine, Texas, is getting into the Easter spirit this week by creating a giant chalk-portrait of Jesus Christ in their parking lot. Fellowship Church is led by Pastor Ed Young, who started the evangelical Christian church in 1990 with about 150 people in Irving. They now have 10 church campuses worldwide. His father is Dr. Ed Young, the head of Second Baptist here in Houston. According to church spokesman Andy Boyd, the 17,000-square-foot drawing of the face of Jesus took 700 volunteers over 9,100 man-hours to create. They also used 6,700 individual pieces of chalk and 125

The Obama administration is extending the agency review period for the Keystone XL oil sands pipeline, potentially delaying the decision until after the November elections -- sparing President Obama a tough political decision in the process. A senior State Department official said agencies have stopped crafting comments because a Nebraska Supreme Court decision could change the pipeline route and, ultimately, the environmental, socioeconomic and cultural factors that went into the environmental review. The official did not directly answer a question whether an altered pipeline route would require a new environmental review.

One day after making an audio appearance on RT to ask Vladimir Putin about Russian surveillance operations, National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden authored a Guardian column to clarify his intentions behind the question and push back on critics who suggest he was attempting to help whitewash the Russian president’s abuses. “Does Russia intercept, analyse or store millions of individuals’ communications?” Snowden asked Putin on Thursday, garnering a denial from Putin that included the statement: “We don’t have mass system of such interception. And according to our law it cannot exist.” Critics alleged that Snowden appeared in a scripted manner,

The school vice principal found hanging Friday was identified as Kang Min-kyu, the lead guide for the school trip. No suicide note was found near the site, but Yonhap news agency reported that Kang

BISMARCK, N.D. — A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a North Dakota law that bans abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before many women know they’re pregnant. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland said the law is “invalid and unconstitutional” and that it “cannot withstand a constitutional challenge.” The state attorney general said he was looking at whether to appeal the decision by the Bismarck-based judge. North Dakota is among several conservative states that have passed new abortion restrictions in recent years, but abortion rights supporters called

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day."
