    At some point people will forget I was locked in the bathroom for 15 minutes during the SEC Tournament.

    Okay. Back to the topic for a moment
    I will say this:
    Blue Bell is the best ice cream I've ever eaten. And I've eaten a lot. It runs about 4.86 a gallon at my local HEB (that's a Texas grocery store chain). Which is only a few pennies more than most other brands.
    I buy Blue Bell, and buy a lot of it. BUT....HEB has it's own brand called Creamy Creations which they sell for about a dollar or so less a gallon. I usually buy it for things like chocolate or plain flavors (except homeade vanilla....Blue Bell is worth the extra) as their brand is very good for the money.

    No Ice cream....None, absolutely none....is worth 90 dollars to deliver even for four half gallons. And I love the stuff. one of the few things i dont mind paying more for.

    But if you insist. tell you what. i'm willing to make a trip. If enough of you northenrers are interested I'll deliver 4 half gallons for only 75 dollars. But i need enough orders to justify this. So send me your orders and when i get up to 4000 gallons, i'lll load up.


    okay continue the thread jack.

    If something comes of this and joe here actually ends up driving 4,000 gallons of Blue Bell up north, would somebody please PM me directions to the dropoff spot?

    I don't want any ice cream, I just want to be there when some guy from Texas rolls 4,000 gallons of this shit in a 7-11 parking lot. And I'd like to see the state of the ice cream. You better have one sweet AC unit in whatever you drive, joe.

    Ha.

    You know, just after I posted, I thought about going back and making a Smokey and the Bandit reference.

    For those in SEC country... when Media Days comes to town, one of the three Blue Bell Creameries is located in Sylacauga, which isn't far from Birmingham if you take 280, if I recall correctly.

    How bout a SportsJournalists.com outing to tour the ice cream plant? They'll probably give us some swag.

    Blue Bell is some good Scream, especially Banna Split. But Publix supermarket brand Banna Split is right there, too. And Edy's toll house cookie dough? :eek:

    Well, I would use dry ice....and well...I'm from Texas, so however much dry ice and icecream fits in the back of the F-150 is how much i can bring. :)

    The best thing about visiting Cincinnati is stopping is eating ribs at The Montgomery Inn and then having a bowl of Graeters Black Rasberry Chip for desert.

    Graters also will send ice cream overnight, and for much less than $90.

    Wiat, did the Bluee Bell place say they delvered over night for the 90? Crap, in that case I lower my price to 65, as I can't promise overnight. Heck, I can't even promise I won't eat it all before I get there, but still.
