The ice cream Olympics: Blue Bell is letting you bring back one of its old flavors

The ice cream Olympics: Blue Bell is letting you bring back one of its old flavors

How can you tell a native Texan from an imposter? Ask them what they think about Blue Bell ice cream. While an outsider can come to appreciate the Brenham creamery, those born and raised on Blue Bell have an irrational love for the brand.

Now Blue Bell is letting fans take a stroll down ice cream memory lane by holding a "Crankin' Back the Clock" flavor contest between 24 old favorites, with one winner being brought back into the lineup in 2013.

Pick something old school, like German Chocolate Cake, Fruit Special or Chocolate Chunk or a newer invention like Wedding Cake, Caramel Kettle Crunch or Cookies! Cookies! Cookies! (a pivotal part of my college experience). Fans who join Blue Bell's Country Club can vote every day, with the six lowest vote earners being eliminated each week.

What's your favorite Blue Bell flavor?
