Fun Friday food fact: Texas has many official symbols, including a state nut. And, no, we're not talking about Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick.

Whether you pronounce it pee-can or puh-kahn, some things just make pecans — Texas' official state nut — irresistible.

Garrison Bros. distillery gets that, and has partnered with California-based McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams to create a limited-edition pecan and praline ice cream. The distillery, by the way, is located in Hye, about an hour north of San Antonio.

Garrison Bros. Whiskey Pecan & Praline ice cream features smooth, sweet and smoky Garrison Bros. Small Batch Bourbon, Central Coast milk, cream and salt-roasted, caramel-coated pecans.

Sounds like that checks all the boxes for indulgence.

The seasonal flavor will only be available for a limited time, starting Friday, February 12. Pints of the are available for online purchase at the McConnell’s website. Each pint runs $12, plus shipping.

And since the production process for the ice cream removes all the alcohol from the whiskey, an ID check isn't required.
