Where to purchase Blue Bell Ice Cream in Fayetteville, NC?

I'm headed down that way in a few weeks from Virginia and was planning on picking some up if i can. I'm coming from the north so anywhere in Fayetteville or a town off i95 where I can buy it would be great!

  1. In the Triangle area Walgreens and Walmart are carrying some flavors, I would check there first

    1. Krogers also carries it. I assume there are Krogers in Fayetteville you might check out.

      btw, here in the Triangle I was eagerly awaiting Blue Bell as well. But take a look at the ingredient list. It's loaded with chemicals.

        I think Kroger may be getting forced out of the area. The one here in Greenville closed...a year ago, I think. It's now a Harris Teeter.

      2. Available at Walmart and Lowes Food here in the Raleigh area. The only ice cream that has no "chemicals" is that which you make yourself.

        Enjoy your Blue Bell!

          No added chemicals in this, although I guess you're never sure unless you grow (and milk) it yourself :-).

          INGREDIENTS: Milk, Cream, Sugar, Skim Milk, Grade A Nonfat Dry Milk, Egg Yolks, Natural Vanilla Extract and Vanilla Beans.

            Here's the ingredient list for Blue Bunny's Red Velvet Cake flavor, which is apparently more representative of most flavors...


            Lots more in there than milk, eggs and sugar.

              are we talking about blue BUNNY or blue BELL?

              1. re: cervisiam

                I posted Blue Bunny's red velvet ingredients in response to DRC's post of Blue Bunny's vanilla ingredient list. I realize the OP was about Blue Bell.

              2. re: carolinadawg

                I was responding to the post that said all store-bought ice cream had chemicals in it.

                1. re: D R C

                  Yes, and while not all does, apparently an overwhelming majority does.

          2. Thanks everyone for the help but it seems like the Raleigh area is about 1hr from where I'll be at in Fayetteville. If that's that case then I think that's a bit out of my way unfortunately.. So no grocery stores actually in Fayetteville sell Blue BELL? (not to be confused with blue bunny)

            **Unless I'm mistaken, which is VERY possible because I'm not familiar with the area!

              No one has said that no grocery store in Fayetteville sells Blue Bell. The problem is there are no posters in F'ville. I think you are simply going to have to try a few stores and see if you can find it, or call a few in advance and ask if they carry it. Harris Teeter and Wal-Mart would appear to be your best bets.
