The Inside Scoop: Blue Bell Ice Cream at the Silos

Published on March 7, 2022

We are so excited to begin serving Blue Bell ice cream! We have created five flavors that are exclusive to Magnolia and hand-dipped only at Magnolia Table and the Silos in Waco, Texas. It’s an honor for us to serve such an iconic, historic Texas ice cream brand on our grounds. These flavors will be launching this weekend at Spring at the Silos. Join us here in Waco and be the first to try a scoop (or two!)

Let's meet the flavors!

The ice cream flavors that our food team developed with Blue Bell share little pieces of our story by celebrating recipes from Jo’s cookbook, sweets we sell at the Silos, and our hometown of Waco. One ingredient that deserves the spotlight: our graham cracker sauce. Featured in Jo’s Lemon Pie and S’mores at the Silos, this sauce is a first-time creation for Blue Bell in their 115-year history!

The new ice cream flavors were inspired by some of Chip and Jo's favorite treats.

Jo's Lemon Pie

lemon and whipped cream ice cream + graham cracker sauce swirl

S’mores at the Silos

milk chocolate ice cream with chocolate chunks + toasted marshmallow and graham cracker sauce swirl

Wacotown Vanilla

sweet and creamy vanilla ice cream

Magnolia Press Chocolate Cake

dark chocolate and buttercream ice cream with chocolate cake pieces + chocolate icing swirl

Chip’s Salted Caramel Truffle

caramel ice cream with chocolate caramel truffle bites + salted caramel swirl

These five flavors are available at Maggie’s Sweet Shoppe at the Silos, the Concession Stand at the Silos, our restaurant Magnolia Table, and Magnolia Press (look for Affogato on the menu). As temperatures warm up, we hope you’ll swing by to cool off with one of these soon!

Where is this ice cream made?

All Blue Bell ice cream is made in Brenham, Texas. The company was founded in 1907 as the Brenham Creamery Company, and has been producing ice cream since 1911! It changed its name to the Blue Bell Creamery in 1930 after the bluebell wildflower, which proliferates all over Texas in the perfect season for ice cream—summer.

What are Chip and Jo’s favorite flavors?

Hint…their favorites are named after them!
