Apparent demand has led Las Vegas to be the newest market for Brenham's specialty: Blue Bell Ice Cream.

Starting March 3, Vegas residents will be able to buy the tasty frozen treats Texans know and love. The Blue Bell will be driven to grocery stores from a new 12,000 square foot distribution facility near the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The facility is creating 14 jobs in the area, from working in the office, warehouse or at the loading docks.

The creamery will be offering the same flavors in Nevada that are offered in Texas.

"We look at consumer demand and grocer relations to make the decision of where to go next," said Kaysie Noska, a public relations and market specialist with Blue Bell. Nevada becomes the 23rd state Blue Bell sells ice cream in.

The legendary Brenham creamery has been producing delicious ice cream since 1907 and now offers more than 50 year-round and seasonal flavors.

The expansion doesn't really come as too much of a surprise. I mean, let's be honest: Who doesn't want a bowl of Homemade Vanilla?
