Blue Bell FREE Week of Ice Cream in KC

The month may be half over, but there's still plenty of summer left! And the sweet folks at Blue Bell Ice Cream are celebrating National Ice Cream Month by giving Kansas City a week of fun events that feature FREE Blue Bell ice cream deliciousness!

Blue Bell’s Week of Free Ice Cream starts Saturday, July 19 and ends Saturday, July 26. The week of free ice cream includes some special stops along the way including Kansas City's Big Picnic on National Ice Cream Day from 5 to 8 p.m. July 20 at Theis Park in Kansas City, Missouri coordinated in conjunction with Kansas City's Parks and Recreation.

During Blue Bell’s Week of Free Ice Cream, everyone in the community is invited to sample the company’s newest creation, Magic Cookie Bar. The new flavor is a sweet ice cream loaded with graham cracker crust pieces, chunks of dark chocolate, roasted pecan pieces and toasted coconut, all surrounded by a caramel sauce swirl. What's not to love about that?!
