Has anyone ever gotten glutened from eating B&J?

There is a buy one get one free at my grocery store this week. I really want some.

I think they label their products clearly, so if you don't see any gluten listed, it should be safe. You can try to Google Ben&Jerry's - Gluten Free to see if you can find a current listing.

Yes, they do list any gluten, but I was just wondering if anyone's gotten sick from cross contamination.

Ever since I got sick eating an Amy's gluten free meal, I'm leery.

Well then, you might want to contact them about their production policies before you indulge yourself. :)

I haven't had any luck with Ben and Jerry's and it's a shame because I LOVE their ice cream. It seems that all of their gluten free flavors have corn, and all of their corn free flavors have gluten! The last time I tried it was during a weak moment. I got the peanut butter cup flavor which contains all glute free/corn free ingredients, but the label DID say that although the peanut butter cups themselves were gluten free, they are made in a facility that processes wheat. And it got me.

Hagen Daz is good, and my favorite of all time (actually, one of the things I LIVE for!) is Starbucks ice cream!! I don't care how much it costs, it's worth it.

They don't sell Starbucks where I live. I have to drive 60 miles to get it. But while I'm there I stock up on Cabot Vermont Extra Sharp White Cheddar. (All they sell here in the middle of nowhere is that disgusting orange cheese.) And I also stock up on Cape Cod potato chips. AND Kettle Brand. (I still like my junk food, but I'm getting better.)

And of course, going to a national grocery chain instead of the tiny little grocery stores in my town, I get better quality meats and produce, and at better prices.

And on top of that, if I go to the two national chains over the border in Nebraska, I don't have to pay sales tax like I do here in South Dakota. Well worth a monthly trip.

I second Starbucks! You can make homemade ice cream - milk, sugar, vanilla....put it in a freezer.

Cheap and you know the ingredients!

If you want a great experience try Talenti Gelato. Holy Moley!!! I found some salted caramel flavor today and can't wait to try it tonight !!! I'll be beating the hubby and kid to keep them away from it....
