TULSA – Blue Bell is making its way back to Green Country, according to the creamery's website.

Phase two of their five phase plan to reintroduce the iconic ice cream back to grocery shelves will commence Nov. 2 of this year, says Blue Bell.

This phase includes putting flavors back on the shelves of cities such as Dallas, Fort Worth, Waco, Oklahoma City and, yes, Tulsa. Their website says they are currently producing ice cream at the Broken Arrow plant.

"We wanted to be consistent with what we did in phase one, because ice cream was being produced in Sylacauga, Alabama we included Birmingham and Montgomery in our first phase. Now that we are also producing ice cream at our facility in Broken Arrow, we want to be fair and make sure that we included Tulsa and Oklahoma City as well," said Blue Bell spokesperson, Jenny Dorf.

For now, the flavors that will be guaranteed to be back on shelves will be half gallon and pint sizes of Buttered Pecan, Cookies ’n Cream, Dutch Chocolate, Homemade Vanilla and The Great Divide.

Blue Bell reports that they hope to add more flavors to this lineup in the future.

The iconic ice cream plant recently volunteered to suspend its production when certain products tested positive for listeria.

Since then, the ice cream plant has restarted production at some of their plants and paired with Texas billionaire Sid Bass to help aid in the reboot of their company.
