The run on the creamy frozen confection could be blamed on a hilariously detailed review of the ice cream by Chris Field that went viral in October:
“Christmas Cookies ice cream is described by Blue Bell as being ‘Sugar Cookie Flavored Ice Cream with Chocolate Chip, Snickerdoodle, and Sugar Cookies, Red Sprinkles and a Green Icing Swirl.’ What Blue Bell should have said was ‘if you love baby Jesus, Santa Claus, puppies wearing Santa hats, or the sound of children laughing on Christmas morning--you need this ice cream in your life.’ It's just that good,” Field wrote.
Field posted his thoughts Sunday about the flavor selling out.
"Look what we did," he wrote.
Blue Bell officials said the flavor will be available again next year.
