Blue Bell is a recent addition to the line of Crayola colors, only being added in 1998.

I want to think it was named after Blue Bell Ice Cream.

If you have lived in the South, you know there is only one ice cream for southerners, Blue Bell.

The Brenham Creamery Company was founded around the time of the Crayola startup, 1907, in Brenham, Texas. It opened originally to purchase excess cream from local dairy farmers and sell butter to the good folks of Brenham. In 1911, the creamery began to produce small quantities of ice cream. In 1930, Brenham Creamery Company was renamed Blue Bell Creameries after the Texas Bluebell, a wildflower native to Texas, and which like ice cream, thrives during the summer. They claimed, “the milk we use is so fresh it was only grass yesterday.”  As of 2015 Blue Bell is the fourth highest selling ice cream brand in the US. I could eat Bluebell Ice Cream for 120 days! To see some of the top flavors of Blue Bell Ice Cream look here!

This post is just one of many in the Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola Challenge! Enjoy!
