Your eyes are immediately blasted by color upon removing the lid, which I assume is courtesy of the turmeric extract. Digging in allows the creme-filled cookies to shine that much more, with the white creme being surprisingly noticeable. From the general lack of resistance, it's easy to tell this is another light-medium base, which Blue Bell are known for. Alas, treating myself to a spoonful lets the base gradually melt and massage my mouth. That is, of course, after the eye-popping lemon flavor serenades me.
Many lemon flavored products have a very pale and bland flavor, which is probably why I never regarded the flavor highly as a child. But Blue Bell knows how to bring a true, lemony-sweet taste out. Though I've never had lemon meringue cake, this is immediately what comes to mind as I return for even more savory bites. It would almost be enough to just offer this ice cream without mix-ins, but since bliss is in the flavor's name, we're treated to some golden Oreo siblings. A reasonable amount of the creme-filled cookies are scattered and smudged throughout, not unlike those in Gingerbread House. Most of these are of decent size, with larger chunks coming into play at the bottom of the pint. Unfortunately, I reached that point rather quickly.
Blue Bell have a knockout on their hands here. Many companies, regardless of their product, seem to have a tough time nailing enjoyable lemon flavors. Lemon Bliss, on the other hand, is a potentially faith-changing option, a reminder as to why I've grown to actually enjoy it when life gives me lemons. The aforementioned downfalls in ingredients and obvious use of artificial flavor doesn't matter, since Lemon Bliss does more than live up its name. I only hope Blue Bell make this a permanent part of their line-up and start sending this flavor out by the gallon.
