(WKRG) – Alabama’s Blue Bell plant in Sylacauga, AL may be up and running, but that doesn’t mean we’ll see pints of our favorite Blue Bell flavors in local stores anytime soon.

According to the Blue Bell website, the ice cream will re-enter the market in five stages across 15 states. The first phase will include Brenham, Houston and Austin, Texas, along with Birmingham and Montgomery, Alabama. That should happen by the end of the month. Blue Bell will move through other parts of the country in the following phases:
