Em314 posted a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsContacted Breyer's through their web site because for years now one of my previous favorite ice creams (Breyer's Blast Reese's Peanut Butter Cups) has not been listed as gluten-free despite there not being anything that ought to be gluten that I could see in the label. I wanted to know if I was missing something of it this was just a CYA issue on their part. Here's the reply: They now have labels right on the carton, and almost none of the "blast" ise creams are labeled as gluten-free. I wonder if this is because of the candy included (Breyer's doesn't want to take responsibility for the safety of a third party's product), but if the candy is what they say it is, it's gluten-free candy. Here's the product page: http://www.breyers.com/product/category/113541/blasts So what sayeth everyone else on this issue? Am I just not seeing the gluten ingredient on the list? This is one of the few gluten-free foods I really, really miss. Enough that I do wonder if it's worth risking an attempt to eat at some point (and I haven't knowingly "cheated" since I got diagnosed over 2 years ago, for context, lol).
I just noticed that some Talenti gelato flavors that were previously labeled "gluten-free" on the tubs no longer have that statement. Is it possible that these flavors are no longer gluten-free? On their website, it says they are gluten-free, but no indication on the label. I'm talking about the Mediterrenean Mint and Butter Pecan in particular. What is the deal with this?
-This post was made on February 2, 2014. If you are reading this a few years down the road, please re-check gluten-free info with the company.- If you live in the Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, or Missouri, you may know about Braum's. (Burger place that serves ice cream and has a grocery side to it-all the dairy is made at their own farm in OK) And I grew up with Braums, so good! I miss their burgers. Everything is great quality. Obviously the restaurant side isn't going to offer too much at a burger and fry kind of place, but they have a grocery side where they sell a little bit of everything and have really good quality products, milk and ice cream, and groceries. We went in there the other day, and I usually go in and get the soft serve frozen yogurt in a cup while I oogle at the sundaes that are scooped with a shared scoop as the gluten containing ice creams, but as I was walking out I saw a HUGE SECTION OF gluten-free PRODUCTS in the grocery area!!!!! They had a ton of Udis stuff (more than any other store around here), King arthur flour and chebe mixes, some glutino stuff, and a few other things. At really good prices, to boot. $2.99 for Chebe mixes impressed me-Usually at least $3.70 around here. They sell some meat, fruit, milk and cheese-things that are naturally gluten-free, but they also have a few other things like dips and such that I am not sure of, so I wrote them today to ask about gluten-free stuff on the grocery side, labeling practices, and went ahead and threw in the "anything I can eat in the restaurant?" question. The only thing addressing gluten on their website says gluten containing ingredients will be listed prominently on ice creams (which they have a bunch) and any ice cream that doesn't have gluten containing ingredients in it is safe. I will definitely be stopping in here often, so I wanted to spread the word since, to me, it was so unexpected and decent prices. I have only been to the one local one near me which is newer and larger, so I have no idea if this was a chain-wide rollout but with the prices I think it may be. I will share any additional information I get when they hopefully write me back!
My first summer with Celiac Disease approaches and the jingle is in the air. Does anyone know if Mister Softee Ice Cream is Gluten Free? I went on the website and downloaded the ingredients: http://www.mistersoftee.com/userfiles/nutrition.pdf But I'm still pretty new to this, so I'm not too sure about the whey and cargeenan (sp?) Assuming I can handle the lactose, I'd love to have a bit of an indulgence this summer (I will miss my sugar cones, though...) Thanks.
