Blue Bell Ice Cream is the third bestselling branded ice cream in the country although it is only available in 22 states, including Kansas and Missouri. The ice cream has attracted what USA Today has called "a cult-like following" in the markets where it is sold and among transplanted Blue Bell lovers everywhere. In 2007, Blue Bell celebrated its 100th anniversary at its headquarters in Brenham, Texas, a town of about 12,000 people located 70 miles northwest of Houston.
