The new flavor is an “eggnog flavored French ice cream with flecks of nutmeg and a whipped topping swirl,” according to Blue Bell.

Honestly, we’re pretty surprised they haven’t thought of this before.

“Many people compare eggnog to ice cream because of its creamy texture,” said Jimmy Lawhorn, vice president, sales and marketing for Blue Bell. “Our ice cream captures the flavor of eggnog perfectly. Your first spoonful is sweet, then you immediately taste a hint of nutmeg. Eggnog is a very popular drink during the Christmas season, but we think our new ice cream could very well take its place.”

Eggnog Ice Cream is available in the half-gallon size for a limited time.

Blue Bell also announced two additional holiday-inspired flavors returning to stores: Christmas Cookies Ice Cream and Peppermint Ice Cream.

Both flavors are available in the half-gallon size, but only while supplies last. So, that means contact your local grocer to make sure these flavors are in stock.
