I am VERY interested in purchasing Blue Bell Mardi Gras King Cake in Bryan/College Station. Is there any way to buy some locally? Every ad I'm seeing only shows it available in Louisiana....
Any tips?

Hi! I actually reached out to Blue Bell on FB and asked this question because I want some too. Brenham and Galveston are the only places within Texas to try and obtain!

I just had my first bowl of Mardi Gras Blue Bell & it is definitely worth a drive to Brenham, Texas = believe me!

Sounds disgusting.

And it's utterly frustrating that Blue Bell artificially constrains demand.

I don't think they are artificially straining demand as much as they are *still* not totally caught up in production so they can only make a limited amount. Instead of sending a little bit everywhere, they are trying to concentrate their supply in places that are associated with Mardi Gras.

(One of my roles in my job is in purchasing and my company buys a significant amount from Blue Bell- so while I haven't discussed this particular flavor with them, my speculation is based on conversations I've had regarding availability of other flavors).

They do have region-exclusive flavors, though (even pre-2013). Rum Raisin wasn't available in Texas, though was part of the local H-E-B's deal to have all the current Blue Bell flavors available. I imagine Mardi Gras King Cake is the same way.

Looks like Beaumont too, maybe.

Checked with the Brenham HEB and Brookshires. Both out. HEB said they would not have anymore as production had ended. Called Blue Bell, and they confirmed this.

In all of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama I only found 4 half gallons. I bought all of them and muled them back to Texas. I honestly think I got the last of the production.
