Tcby Frozen Yogurt

11 posts in this topic

I am SO frustrated. I can't find anything out on their website, it's Sunday and I'm dying for a TCBY. I KNOW we discussed this on this board but I have searched every topic and I can't find it.

Please help-what can I have at TCBY and are there any cross cont. issues I should be concerned with?

Thanks, Jenn

Thanks, celiac3270! I don't know how you found that so fast-I didn't realize it was under the Coldstone Creamery topic!

In any case I had the TCBY and so far so good but i didn't know to ask them to clean off the machine..hopefully this will be fine. Do we ask b/c the cones can touch them?

Alot of their ice cream and frozen yogurt is gluten free. I have an email of flavors we can have that they sent me..if you want just email me and I will send it to you. We love to go to TCBY about 1 time a week :D

Well, I ate there and loved it! Did not get sick.

But I still would like to know why to ask them to clean the machine..hopefully whoever posted that will read this and answer!

I clearly must not be lactose intolerant b/c I felt fine after eating it and still do.

Can dairy bother you sometimes and not others?

I assume that they ask them to clean the shiver machine because it can be used to mix the yogurt with all of the other toppings that we cannot have. So, everytime I go, I ask them to get the toppings from the original container in the back and to clean the mixer so that there is no trace of the cookie dough, oreos, etc. on there.

I'm not sure what the shiver machine is. I don't get toppings, just yogurt out of the machine.

But, if you think about it, those machines might touch a cone from time to time.

I used to work at TCBY...and yes the shiver machine should be cleaned because they just swirl it in water after they make the shivers.The shiver machine just mixes the toppings into the yogurt. The shivers can contain gluten because of toppings such as oreos. If you get regular yogurt from the yogurt machine then you are fine.

Okay, cool. All I get is the regular yogurt. Should I be concerned, though, about it touching a cone?

The cone does not touch it...at least I never saw it while I worked there. It gets close but not to the point of touching. I wouldn't be concerned about that.

    • Mexican?
      Chipotle is one of my favorite places to eat, but it is a 50/50 chance of having a reaction due to cross-contamination.  Yes, they graciously make an effort to be gluten-free and will change gloves.  BUT, before that they used gloves and handled flour tortillas and then used same gloves to reach into the lettuce and cheese--voila--cross-contaminated food.  Changing gloves for you does not avoid this cross-contamination problem.  I started having reactions and my daughter advised me to avoid all the corn products there because of what she read on their website about allergens--so no more chips, or crispy taco shells, or corn.  I also avoid the green salsa and the pico de gallo--not that I am aware of cross contamination but she never eats that there and she has been successful at not having reactions, so that is what I do now and have had much success. Here is what I get:   burrito bowl with either white or brown cilantro lime rice, grilled veggies, black beans, barbacoa, red salsa, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, and lettuce on top.  So GOOD! and so far, safe for me.
    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Hi Elle.   To be honest, to this day I am not sure if I actually had zoster sine herpete.  It was one of several suggestions by bewildered doctors.  What I can tell you is that I had to have MRIs  because one doctor thought I might have trapped nerve in my spine and I thought it would reveal something dreadful being the sort of person who gets weird nerve sensations - and it didn't reveal a thing.   It was unsettling to have symptoms like that for so long but what made me think my brother in law might have been right was because the worst of the symptoms lasted a year which I gather is pretty typical (but don't panic, because they can go a lot faster!)   My nutritionalist told me that if we get run down we are more prone to shingles so that is something to watch. Easy to say (and I'm speaking to myself here!) try not to spend too much time by yourself worrying about these things because anxiety never helps with nerve pain. I found that rest was very beneficial so I would recommend you try to get as much of that as you can.  Also, someone suggested a warm bath for 20 minutes with some Epsom salts.  That helped too. As I say, just one reason you might be getting this pain but I would continue with the investigations and perhaps mention the pain to your doctor and ask if it could be shingles.      
    • Rudy's Not Gluten Free
      Rudy's is one of my favorite places to eat, but you do have to be VERY careful due to cross-contamination.  I always get the cutter's choice brisket, some form of potatoes (new potatoes or baked potato), pinto beans, 3-bean salad and use generous slathering of their regular BBQ sauce, not the Sissy Sauce.   My daughter has gotten sick a couple of times dining with us at Rudy's, but we have narrowed down the culprit to cross contamination.  She usually orders the stuffed baked potato, gets brisket (chopped up)--not the chopped BBQ, and asks them to use a new plastic knife to  cut open the potato.  They use tissue to pick up the chopped meat and put it on the potato which also comes with sour cream, butter/margarine, and grated cheddar cheese.  They have always been very courteous about accommodating us.  This has eliminated my daughter from having reactions.  (The regular metal knife had been used on bread.)  I also reach over the tray as it is being filled and place one of their paper tissues over my meat or potato so that when they place my husband's bread slices or sandwich (made with regular bread), crumbs won't get on my food.  I am so thankful for Rudy's--it is so good--and with taking these precautions, I believe it is relatively safe.  
    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Thank you, squirmingitch. I'll pass that on to Mom, too. Cristiana, did they ever determine what caused your nerve pain or do you now think it was related to Celiac? That form of shingles sounds awful (well, any form sounds awful - my mom's had it 3 times!) and fortunately I do not think that's what's ailing me.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
