Well, my mom and I decided to try eating MDs fries to see. The first time we had some we were perfectly fine. The second time we both immediately had an awful reaction. I'm still getting over it. It just isn't worth the risk to us!

Perhaps....I tried to look up some information on it, but their nutritional info. only gives ingredients, not any measures they take to avoid contamination. Their allergen info. only refers to peanuts........if you want to call them, though, here is the contact information (no e-mail):

McDonald's french fries are NOT gluten-free. They are only gluten-free if a dedicated fryer is used which is often not the case. Please don't assume that they are without asking.

I always ask (although I almost never eat at McDonald's) but virtually every McDonald's has a dedicated fryer. The ones to be real careful about are the small, partial service ones in places like Walmart.

They are supposed to be all gluten-free if they are McDonald restaurants. . .unless they are using the fryers improperly.

"I don't belive that to be true, Glix. . .are you sure?"

Every ice cream I've ever checked has been gluten-free UNLESS it has obvious stuff like cookies, cookie dough, cake, pie, etc. I've also seen one or two fudge type things that have been dicey. Otherwise, ice cream appears to be gluten-free. If anybody can show otherwise, please let us know.

For me, this is a product I've stopped checking so rigoriously.

i worry about ice cream at a store, like the kind that's in a bunch of tubs since they dip the scoop in there then touch ice cream cones, or at DQ i used to get blizzards until i realized (duh!) the thing they mix it with touches candy that isn't gluten-free

If you still want your Blizzards just have them wash the mixer. I've never had a problem getting them to do this.

i always get milk shakes

what i meant before was any chocolate/vanilla/strawberry etc ice cream is gluten-free unless it has bread products in it such as cookie dough or oreos

i go to baskin robbins a lot to get shakes there i should probably ask them to clean the mixer

last week, i was at this ice cream place in the mall with my friend. he got a shake mixed with oreo and i got chocolate. they used the same mixer for both shakes. so be careful with that

Everything I have read states that McDonald's fries are gluten free. I have also eaten their hamburger's without a bun and without cheese and have not had a reaction.

On the other hand I have eaten at Jack in the box after they told me their fries were not fried in grease that was used for anything else and having a burger without the bun and got very ill. What about milkshakes or ice-cream?

I believe that McDonalds icecream and shakes are ok..however I would stay away from Jack in the Box Shakes because there is alot of cross contamination-- I have noticed that their Oreo shake is often mixed into the other flavors..not safe!

good luck.

Ok thank-you. I do have a question though. I was under the impression that we couldn't eat anything with cookies as they contain gluten?

What I meant by that is that the oreo part of that would be made out of cookies. Wouldn't that be right?
