TULSA — Blue Bell kicked off 2019 by releasing a new flavor of ice cream Wednesday.

Mardi Gras King Cake ice cream is being released to stores this week in the half gallon size.

“We have been making Mardi Gras King Cake since 2012, but the flavor has mostly been sold in areas known for the celebration such as Louisiana and Alabama,” said Carl Breed, corporate sales manager for Blue Bell. “Last year a grocery store in Louisiana posted about the flavor’s arrival on its Facebook page and we started receiving requests from all over the country. After that, we decided to share this festive flavor with everyone in our distribution area.”

The Mardi Gras inspired dessert is made with a cinnamon cake flavored ice cream, pastry pieces and a cream cheese swirl with candy sprinkles. The flavor is available for a limited time.
