I’m convinced that the Blue Bell ice cream company is trying to kill people.
In 2015, the company had a massive recall of all their ice cream brands following a listeria outbreak that left several people fucked up and dead. That led to the #BlueBellFamine of 2015 during the summer, which had many customers sad, ticked off, and in their feelings. Like Evelyn From The Internets.
One would think that a listeria outbreak would lead Blue Bell customers to jumping ship altogether for other brands. But that’s not what happened.
Once Blue Bell began production again, people lined up at super market doors to get their cold, tasty treat. They had zero regard for whether or not they lost a limb or died from listeria. Talk about dedication!
That’s why I wasn’t surprised that Blue Bell customers were still going to the store and scooping up pints after the company voluntarily recalled their brands made with cookie dough due to a potential listeria hazard.
As for myself, I’d have to say that Blue Bell is one of the best ice cream brands I’ve ever tasted, hands down. But I’m also not a big ice cream lover, thanks to my lactose intolerance.
Either way, I’d be remiss if I didn’t say that their listeria reports is concerning to me. I personally could live without Blue Bell in my life, but my husband can’t picture a world without it.
Just like many loyal customers, my husband thinks that eating Blue Bell is like catching a rainbow in a jar, and it’s the closest he’s going to get to touching the hem of Jesus’ garments. Listeria hazard or not, Blue Bell customers will never give up the treat, no matter how many people dies from listeria
When I say that Blue Bell’s loyal customer base will never give up on them, it is a fact that’s hard to dispute. These customers were so heartbroken about the company’s third recall, that they collectively used their voices to reiterate their support of the brand on Twitter.
Here is what Blue Bell’s hard core fans had to say about how dedicated they are to riding out the company’s latest recall.
1. PEOPLE WERE COUNTING ON BLUE BELL TO GET THEM THROUGH THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE
2. SOME PEOPLE LIKED BLUE BELL BETTER WITH THE STUFF THAT INCAPACITATED PEOPLE
3. YOU WOULD PROBABLY MAKE SOMEONE’S DAY IF YOU GAVE THEM A BLUE BELL IV DRIP
4. BLUE BELL-TIANS COULD NEVER PICTURE A WORLD WITHOUT IT
5. AND TRIBUTES ARE VOLUNTEERING TO TASTE TEST THE TREAT TO KEEP THE MASSES FROM DYING
