Texas-based Blue Bell ice cream is celebrating National Ice Cream Month with a new flavor: Coconut Cream Pie.

This ice cream takes all the elements of the classic pie and transports into a scoop of refreshing ice cream. Its coconut-flavored French style ice cream base is mixed with flakes of coconut alongside crumbles of pie crust and a swirl of whipped topping loaded with toasted coconut winds through every container, according to a press release from the company.

It will only be available for a limited time. Each year Blue Bell celebrates National Ice Cream Month (July was designated as the month in 1984 by former President Ronald Regan) by releasing new flavors or re-releasing old favorites.

“Coconut Cream Pie Ice Cream is the perfect summertime dessert,” said Carl Breed, general sales manager for Blue Bell. “What better way to cool down at your next barbecue than with a bowl of our new flavor? Coconut Cream Pie Ice Cream is light, and silky-smooth. You will find toasted coconut and swirls of whipped topping in every bite. The pie crust pieces tie it all together to capture the taste and texture of a real coconut cream pie.”

Blue Bell creamery has been making ice cream in Brenham, TX, since 1907. Its products, which include various types of ice cream and frozen treats, are sold at stores 22 states. Customers from anywhere in the U.S. can also have the ice cream shipped to their home.

In addition to Coconut Cream Pie, Blue Bell fans should also be able to find Strawberry Cheesecake and Krazy Kookie Dough flavors in stores this month.
