you have to read the ingredients. Different recipes and different brands have different answers.

Edys/Dreyers ice cream has a list of which ice creams have gluten & its the ones with the obvious ingredients like cookie dough or brownie pieces. I have found from reading ice cream containers that most seems to be gluten-free, especially the simple flavors. Probably wouldn't get it any where they scoop it out as cones tend to break & fall in. They only rinse the scoopers off between scoopings.
There really are a lot of calories out there that we can still consume. ;)

YES TONS of Ice cream is gluten-free. You can eat the soft serve at Dairy Queen like the peanut buster parfait (my favorite) or flavors at Baskin Robbins and Ben and Jerry's! Make sure if it is scooped ice cream they use a clean scooper and change their gloves, avoid machines that mix multiple items like (blizzard machines). You have to look up the flavors and brands but even generics have gluten-free options like Publix brand, Safeway, and Lucerne. Before you go shopping or eating check websites and print out flavors that are gluten free! Another favorite of mine is Edy'd Fun Flavors Reese's Peanut Butter CUP!!!

I found that even gluten free ice cream makes me sick. I think it is the gar gum. I can eat soft ice cream though at stands without getting ill. Just watch what you put on it and if you get a blizzard like treat have them whip the mixer arm off because the person before you may have had something gluteny in their treat. I leave a tip so far no one has complained.

I found a good home ice cream replacement is italian ice.

Bryers is an Unilever Product and will also list all forms of gluten.
Just read the label. ;)

Usually, but you have to read labels. Brownie, cookie, cheesecake, and cookie dough flavors usually have wheat in them. Chocolate chips and fudge are usually OK.

I agree that Breyer's is really good about labeling and the labels are pretty simple too. I also eat some of the Ben & Jerry's, Haagen-Dazs, and Safeway flavors.
