    OH NO!!!!!!!!! TCBY is/was my FAVORITE. I have been eating it all the time since going gluten-free and have not had a problem at all. I am pretty sure I have silent celiac since I don't have many symptoms but I thought all the ingredients were okay. Should I stop eating it? I am so upset right now. Oh no. Someone please tell me I don't have to stop eating it??? :(

    I had the exact same reaction after receiving the same email from TCBY. I emailed back for more information and was given the Chemists phone number. His name is Craig Bennett, 1 800 343 5377 ext 8904. He called me back and we talked about his quest for getting complete information from his suppliers on their products. I do not have anything in writing and do not want to miss state what he told me, so I am passing on his phone number so you can call him yourself. I did leave another message today asking for written information to pass on. Good Luck!

    So, I just got an email from TCBY. I had sent them an email directly through their webiste. Here is the response that I got:

    Thank you for your recent email message. The only TCBY soft-serve frozen yogurt flavors that specifically contain wheat, oats, barley, or ryie in the ingredients are as follows: Cheesecake, Chocolate malt, and Cookies and Cream.

    The majority of our Mrs. Fields Ice Cream flavors are not gluten-free. The flavors that DO NOT contain gluten are: Chocolate Chocolate, Chunky Chocolate Mint, Dulce De Leche, Rocky Road Rapture, Peanut Butter Cup, Toffee Coffee Crunch, and Vanilla Bean.

    The maltodextrin flavoring in all our notfat/no-sugar-added flavors is derived from corn. Therefore, these contain no gluten.

    The alcohol extracts in the flavorings are derived from a grain source, but the following flavors have no added extracts: Chocolate Frozen Yogurt, Coffee Frozen Yogurt, Peanut Butter Frozen Yogurt, Dutch Chocolate Nonfat Frozen Yogurt, and Chocolate Nonfat/No-sugar-added frozen yogurt. All other frozen yogurt flavors do contain alcohol extracts.

    All sorbet flavors contain as an ingredient "natural flavors" that may be derived from a grain source. Therefore, we are not able to guarantee that these are gluten-free.

    Other items: sprinkles, many candies, cookies, cak and pie crust all contain gluten. Fruits and hot toppings do not contain gluten. All ice cream cones contain gluten.

    As a suggestion for a special occasion treat for someone with gluten intolerance, you can order a pie with no crust (prepared directly in an aluminum pie plate), and have the employee assisting you smooth a topping on it and decorate it like they would a regular cake order.

    Thank you for contacting Mrs. Fields Famous Brands on-line. If you need any other information, please let me know.

    Isn't that great????? I was so excited. She seems very knowledgable on gluten intolerance. I have never had a problem eating the yogurt and they are very accomodating. They even get me my topping straight from the container so as not to use the potentially contaminated scoopers. :D
