Blue Bell's newest flavor is Cookies 'n Cream Cone, and it hits stores on Thursday.

Blue Bell Ice Cream's new limited edition flavors roll out all year long, and the latest is inspired by a year-round favorite. 

The Brenham-based creamery announced on Thursday it is releasing a new flavor called Cookies ‘n Cream Cone, "a creamy vanilla ice cream combined with chocolate crème-filled cookie crumbles, chocolate cone pieces coated in dark chocolate and a chocolate fudge sauce."
