Blue Bell stated Thursday on their Instagram page that The Great Divide will land in stores on August 31 along with the three other previously announced flavors. The company described it as “a combination of our Homemade Vanilla and rich, creamy Dutch Chocolate ice cream in one unique carton.”
“We hope you like our starting line-up we’ve unveiled this week,” Blue Bell added. But not everyone is pleased. That is because Homemade Vanilla and Dutch Chocolate are both already included in the roster of returning flavors, unveiled on Monday and Tuesday, respectively. Cookies ‘n Cream was announced on Wednesday.READ MORE: ERCOT CEO Bill Magness Voted Out By Board Of Directors
“Both of these flavors were released earlier this week,” said Christian Garcia on Instagram. “Don’t think y’all could have came out with something new?”
Instagram user Jackie McKinney echoed the frustration by saying, “Makes no sense! These were released already!”
Other commenters simply called for the return of their personal favorite flavors such as Rocky Mountain Road, Pecan Pralines ‘n Cream and Southern Blackberry Cobbler. “If you haven’t seen your favorite yet,” Blue Bell reassured, “don’t worry because there are still more flavors to come.”MORE NEWS: The 12 COVID Tax Changes You Need To Know Before Filing This Year
