FlavorIce Flavors of Summer!

Summer is coming! And with that, you’ll need to know what flavors of Fla-Vor-Ice you’ll want lined up inside your freezer! Most of the time when you buy the bags, you’ll get an assortment of flavors, but it’s often hard to tell what exactly they are…so here’s a list of what you might find inside your next box!

What is FlavorIce?  Flavorice is flavored liquid (frozen treat) that comes in a plastic tube. These “frozen pops” are a FAVORITE of kids, and is a great way to cool off in summer.  You stick the tubes in your freezer where they freeze.  When a hot day comes, you pull it out, cut off a corner of the plastic tube, and suck out the frozen liquid inside! It’s a refreshing and tasty way to cool off on a hot summer day and has been for 35 years!!

What flavors are available in Flavor Ice Tubes?

The main Original flavors (if you want to stick with the classic)…they are sometimes called the “Fruity” flavors (if you’re trying to find them in the store). They are:
1.  Lemon Lime (this will be the green tube, and is often a favorite!)
2. Orange (the Orange tube)
3. Berry Punch (the blue tube – everyone likes this one becuase it turns the tongue blue!)
4. Grape (the purple tube)
5. Tropical Punch (the pink tube)
6. Strawberry (the red tube – a kid favorite!)

Other varieties of Fa-For-Ice include:

Light Flavors – These are in the Sugar Free line, and include Lemon Lime, Strawberry, Berry Punch, and Grape.

Candy Shoppe Flavors – There are four varieties of “candy” that include bubble gum, banana taffy, cotton candy, and red licorice.

Tropical Flavors – There are 6 choices in this line including Summer Punch, Pineapple, Berry Punch, Banana, Tropical Punch, and Citrus Punch.

Here’s a classic 1992 commercial for the frozen treat!  Motto:  We Freeze Please!

Blue Bell flavors

We get alot of questions about Blue Bell Ice cream flavors especially during the summer months when eveyrbody is in search for a cool down treat. There is no better ice cream to buy at the store than the Blue Bell brand, for the fortunate we get to buy Blue Bell all year round depending on which flavors are released.

The Blue Bell factory puts different flavors into a rotation depending on the time of year. This is probably not only for quality control but also because it is not realistic for a company to offer dozens and dozens of flavors when they know which ones we want and which ones are more popular.

So direct from the Blue Bell Website I have the list of roational ice cream flavors that will start the beginning of June and will continue in rotation for 3 months. The website indicates that rtoations occur on a 3 month cycle, so in another 3 months look out for different flavors that will last another 3 months.

Note: These are not all the flavors offered, this is just a list of flavors that begin June 2010.

  • **Century Sundae – Gold Rim

Our most popular ice cream, Homemade Vanilla, swirled with caramel and chocolate sauces, a whipped       topping and diced maraschino cherries.

  • **Strawberry Cheesecake – Gold Rim

Klondike bar

One favorite summer treat – the Klondike bar – a chocolate-coated vanilla ice cream dessert with a picture of a polar bear on the wrapper -comes in a surprising variety of flavors! The six original flavors ice cream dating back to 1922 included:

A variety of flavors followed afterwards including cappuccino, caramel, york peppermint patty, neapolitan, reese’s, oreo, fudge, heath/toffee, and butterscotch.
