Ice Cream Truck
Posted 19 May 2011 - 12:43 PM
I'd love to have an idea in advance of what treats are known to be safe so I don't have to make a big deal when we get up to the window. There is usually a line and my son (6) has a hard enough time making a decision in the first place. If there is no list available, I'll have to research my own but I thought I'd check here first.
I know they all carry different products but there must be some "standards" that would be available everywhere.

Last year I did take a chance and bought a Spongebob pop for my daughter. I only knew that she had one before but many years before. Turns out it has dairy in it. I don't know if dairy is a concern for you or not.
What you probably need to do is approach the truck when they are not busy and tell the person running it that you need to read the ingredients on the items. That is the only way you'll know for sure.

Reality is that the truck probably carries mostly gluten-free stuff.

I think that's what most of the ice cream trucks around here carry. Also, a lot of ice cream trucks will have ingredients for soft serve if you ask. I sent Hood an email about their softserve and it was fine, but that was a couple years ago so you may want to re-check.
Watch out some ice cream and frozen yogurt does contain gluten. We can't go to Berryline which is a Cambridge chain. Kimball farms only has three gluten-free flavors (http://www.kimballfarm.com/faq.shtml). Lizzies and JP Licks are super nice and have allergen and ingredient lists you can get at the counter.
Also, Fenway and the Boston Garden have gluten free treats. You can contact Aramark. I think they also do the AAA ball parks.
It's getting much easier here since they passed Ming's law in 2009. (http://www.mass.gov/...t02/st02701.htm)
