READER REVIEW: Steve's Review of Blue Bell Milk & Cookies

Who doesn't like milk and cookies? I sure do, so when the Ice Cream Informant told us about this new offering from Blue Bell, well I just had to try it! Blue Bell describes Milk and Cookies as "A delicious vanilla ice cream combined with chocolate chip cookies". Sounds basic but classic, so I was eager to dig in.


Popping off the lid, I was met with a fairly featureless sight: A whole lot of vanilla base interspersed with what appeared to be cookie fragments. Oh well, let's get started! Working my spoon into the ice cream, I quickly realized that there were more cookies than initially met the eye. Milk and cookies does not shirk on the cookies. You get lots of cookie slivers, many decent-sized cookie chunks, and a few downright enormous cookie shards. These cookies taste pretty good too. While the chocolate chips don't really stand out, the overall effect is of a tasty chocolate-flavored shortbread cookie. The vanilla flavored ice cream complements the cookies nicely. This base is rich and creamy, and blends with the cookies to nice effect.


Milk and cookies is far from Blue Bell's best flavor. While everything about it works, there just isn't a whole lot to it. The name doesn't like: You get vanilla ice cream and cookies!

  1. Nice one, Steve!

    This flavor makes me think of BB Christmas Cookies. CC wouldn't be the same without the sweet, bright green icing component found in that flavor.

  2. Great point! The lack of a CC type sauce holds this flavor back.
