Hello,

Just spoke with the nice people at Blue Bell Ice Cream;here is their reply

and their latest gluten free list,posted with their permission:

Blue Bell is aware of Celiac Sprue and gluten. We do provide products suitable for individuals avoiding gluten and I have attached a list of these products. Please feel free to share the list with your support group and anyone else interested.

No Sugar Added Country Vanilla is gluten free and available in the half gallon, quart and pint sizes. I also hope that you can find several other flavors on the list to enjoy. Thank you again for calling and for your interest in our products. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance. From all of us here at Blue Bell, we hope you have ‘A Blue Bell Country Day!’

I'm leery about the snickerdoodle and the cheesecake one...as those both typically have cookie elements to them and then they tell you to avoid the normal gluten (cookie) flavors!!

"so far a little improvement"

Hang in there....you will get better
but it will take a month or so,with
older people longer.
But it will come.... .
One thing to watch for is weight
gain,as your absorption comes back.
Take care!

I know this is an old thread, but since it is the first thing that pops up on a google search, I feel obligated to add that this information has absolutely changed.  My husband brought home a pint of Blue bell dutch chocolate ice cream for me tonight, and as I was taking my first few bites I discovered Flour(wheat) near the end of the ingredients list.  This is actually the first verifiable screw up I have had since I was diagnosed, and it is a vivid reminder that you always need to read every label, every time you put something in to your mouth.  My husband feels very bad for buying that, but I told him that it is ultimately my responsibility to police what goes into my mouth.  He still feels bad, lol.  I don't have info on other flavors, but watch your ingredients on blue bell ice cream, for sure. (Blue bell is a regional band based in Texas.)
