Product Review - So Delicious Ice Cream Sandwiches


The children had Day Camp this week and Thursday's snack was ice cream sandwiches. My daughter is avoiding wheat, gluten and soy among other things, but if you are not these are a great alternative to regular dairy ice cream sandwiches. They taste great and they look just like what everyone else is eating, except - NO TUMMY ACHE! (According to my son who is avoiding dairy.)

Now, please check the label and call the company before you try to give this to your child. They say they use safe practices in cleaning their equipment between batches (because they do use a lot of different allergens), and when we tried these for my daughter (during the 9 month period when she was able to eat soy) and (starting first with just 1/8 tsp. of the ice cream every 15 minutes and gradually working up to more over 4 days) she did not have an anaphylactic reaction. She did, however, have severe stomach aches so that closed the case for us on soy and we are avoiding it again. If, however, you child can tolerate soy but not dairy, try these out. Also look into their coconut based ice cream. It might work for you. Please note, however, that they have also started making an ice cream that contains peanut/peanut butter. Please be careful and enjoy it if you can.
