I recently went to Baskin Robbins hoping someone there could tell me if there was an ice cream with no gluten. Surprisingly, I never even had to ask someone. On every ice cream label at the very bottom it states if that ice cream contains certain allergenic ingredients including wheat! It was quick and easy to order. I was also surprised by the wide range of ice creams w/ out gluten. Baskin Robbins is now my official dessert headquarters!
P.S. I do not know if the employees always wash the ice cream scoops after scooping a glutenous ice cream. May want to request it.

Thanks for the info.
Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -
The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis
Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,
most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as
being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."
Serious Depressive state ensued
Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003
Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.
Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle
Developed neuropathy in 2005
Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

Since the allergen list on the Baskin Robbins website only specifies "wheat" and not other sources of gluten, I called this morning to ask. I was told immediately by the CS representatives that NONE of their ice creams can be considered gluten-free. Whether this is a CYA statement or indicates actual gluten in all their ice creams, I am not sure.
I will probably take the kids for their 31 cent scoops after their track meets this afternoon, but I'll bring my own little single-serve of Ben & Jerry's. ;-)
I'm not heartbroken. I like TCBY better anyway.
gluten-free since mid-2007.
Symptoms: "IBS," chronic fatigue, chronic pain.
Celiac is a family affair for us; my mom, sister, and one of my sons are gluten free. At least it makes holiday gatherings easier.
