The ice cream flavor has been a hit each Carnival season, so it’s back!

“Grab a mask and a half gallon of our Mardi Gras King Cake Ice Cream!” the company announced via Twitter.


You can get the taste of king cake in a bowl. The ice cream is a cinnamon cake flavor with tasty pastry pieces, a colorful green cream cheese swirl, and festive candy sprinkles.

In 2019, Blue Blue rolled out Mardi Gras King Cake ice cream nationwide in all areas that sell Blue Bell products. The company decided to expand the popular flavor after requests came pouring in from numerous parts of the country.

Mardi Gras King Cake is a combination of two previous flavors, Mardi Gras, introduced in 2004, and King Cake, first produced in 2006.

Better move fast, because this flavor is only available in the half gallon size for a limited time. Contact your local grocer to make sure the flavor is in stock.
