REVIEW: Blue Bell Peachy Peach Ice Cream

Blue Bell Peachy Peach Ice Cream Pint

What is Blue Bell Peachy Peach Ice Cream?

It’s not the most creatively named ice cream, but it certainly has an accurate moniker. This newest flavor from Texas-based Blue Bell is described as “creamy peach ice cream with chunks of sweetened peaches.”

How is it?

Well, it’s peachy, as advertised, both literally and figuratively. There are no bells and whistles with this ice cream — those wouldn’t taste very good anyway — but it delivers on its promise. It’s a tasty peach ice cream base, and the peach chunks give it a pleasant boost and some extra texture. I generally find Blue Bell ice creams to be creamier than the average store brand. However, this one seemed to be a bit lacking in the creaminess department. Even so, that’s about the only mark I have against this. The ice cream flavor is pleasant with the perfect amount of peachiness while not being overpowering.

The peach chunks, which are quite large, dial up the peach flavor and the sweetness a few notches, but again, not to the extreme. I wouldn’t say you get a fresh peach flavor from the chunks but rather more of a candied peach taste. It’s hard for a somewhat basic ice cream product to be spectacular, and this one isn’t, but I did like it better than the average single-flavor ice cream.

Anything else you need to know?

You don’t need to know this in any way whatsoever, but apparently, the world record for the largest peach is 1 pound 12 ounces, and not surprisingly, it was grown in Georgia. I have to say I’m not that impressed. I don’t know what weight would sufficiently impress me — maybe if it was as big as my head — but I thought the record peach would be bigger for some reason. See, you didn’t need to know any of this, but since it’s a section of the review, I feel compelled to fill this space.

Conclusion:

For a straightforward ice cream flavor like this, your level of enjoyment will be closely tied to your affinity for peaches. For me, peaches land about in the middle of the fruit spectrum. So I’ll happily finish this pint but probably won’t buy another one. If you are a peach fanatic, this might turn into one of your favorite ice creams.

9 thoughts to “REVIEW: Blue Bell Peachy Peach Ice Cream”

  1. Since their listeria outbreak and the lack of concern that they had for the victims…hard pass on their products.

  2. This flavor is dangerous. It has substantial pieces of peach pit in it that can cause tooth and gum damage to an adult and possible choking hazards to a small child. If you have some, throw it out!

  3. This new peach flavor tastes more like candy. I much preferred the original ‘Peaches and Cream’ flavor! Please bring it back, Blue Bell!

    1. I like the vanilla and peach a lot better. The peachy peach leaves a after taste. Will not buy again.

  4. We love most blue ice cream, always buy the black Walnut when we find it, was very excited to try the new peachy peach, very disappointed. Did not taste like peaches, left an unpleasant aftertaste. Will not buy again.

  5. I remember the original Peaches and Homemade Vanilla back in the day (late 70’s?). So I was so excited to try the new Peachy Peach. But this flavor did not “WOW” me like Peaches and Homemade vanilla did. When I ate the PHV, it tasted like grandma’s homemade crank and turn ice cream. I could not put down the carton when I opened it. BUT this new Peachy Peach was not near as good as the original. It was a whopping $7.49 for it, so we’ll finish – but just sayin’ — it’ ain’t like the first Peaches.
