Blue Bell Birthday Party - Happy 41st David!

David's antigravity M&M cake

The kids and I pulled it off!  We celebrated David's birthday with a fun, M&M antigravity cake and then we had a Blue Bell Ice Cream tasting contest with 33 different flavors of Blue Bell Ice Cream.  For those of you that don't know, David grew up in Brenham, Texas and has an affinity for Blue Bell Ice Cream.  David, A, C, and D were ice cream tasters while B and E helped me serve them.  We had a blast!  And of course, we have lots of Blue Bell Ice Cream to enjoy for awhile.

Ice Cream Testers

The ice cream testers started off round 1 with blindfolds and had to guess every flavor on taste alone.  In round 2 they were able to see the ice cream and taste it again.  For round 3, they were given all the Blue Bell ice cream flavor names that we had on hand.  Then, we went over the answers to see who guessed correctly.

We showed them these sheets for round 3.

Another hint sheet...

The sheet on the right was used to make guesses and notes for each tasting.

Here you can see David's notes!

So, what flavors did we have.  Glad you asked!  We served - Cotton Candy, Dutch Chocolate, Butter Crunch, Ultimate Neapolitan, Rocky Road, Pecan Pralines 'n Cream, Strawberry, Homemade Vanilla, Moo-llennium Crunch, Birthday Cake, Butter Pecan, Sundae, Rainbow Sherbet, Cookies 'n Cream, The Great Divide, Pistachio Almond, Bride's Cake, Raspberry Fudge Brownie, Krazy Kookie Dough, Mint Chocolate Chip, Cookie Two Step, Cherry Vanilla, Banana Split Sundae, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Naturally Vanilla Bean, Coffee, Chocolate Chip, Milk Chocolate, French Vanilla, Tin Roof, Banana Pudding, Rocky Mountain Road, and Strawberries & Homemade Vanilla.  Definitely a yummy party.
