Texans have been in a bad way since April when the state's beloved Blue Bell Creameries was forced to stop production due to a listeria outbreak. Although the past several months have seemed like a millenia, good news is coming to the Lone Star State, MySanAntonio.com reports.

Blue Bell has begun returning to stores across the Southern United States. On Dec. 14, the company will roll out its third phase, returning to the majority of Texas. Abilene, Amarillo, Beaumont, Big Spring, Brownsville, Corpus Christi, Harlingen, Laredo, Longview, Lubbock, Lufkin, Midland, McAllen, Odessa, San Antonio, Tyler and the surrounding areas are all included on the list, in addition to Mobile, Ala.

Phase one of the roll out brought Blue Bell back to Austin, Houston and Brenham, where the company is located, and parts of Alabama, where the company has another plant. Phase two included Dallas, Fort Worth and Waco in addition to Tulsa and Oklahoma City, Okla.

In other words, Christmas is coming early in Texas this year.
