BRENHAM -- A popular creamery is doing so well that it’s expanding.

Blue Bell Creameries is building a $14 million addition to its location in Brenham. The expansion will help store even more of the country’s third best-selling ice cream.

“Things are good here in Brenham, aren’t they? We like to keep it that way,” said Ricky Dickson of Blue Bell. “We have to thank our consumers for that.”

The creamery is also expanding their flavors. Blue Bell’s newest flavor is Lemon Bliss.

“It doesn't make you pucker,” said Dickson. “It’s not real, real tart. It’s very, very smooth.”

Lemon Bliss is just a simple recipe of lemon ice cream and vanilla cream cookies.

The new flavor is already at some stores in and around Houston, but if you don't see it yet, it should be in more freezers by Monday.

Blue Bell’s expansion is set to be completed by summer.
