Nutrition and Product Information

Is your ice cream gluten-free?

Generally, most of our flavors are gluten free. There is no gluten in the dairy used in making our ice cream. There is also gluten in the the coconut milk used in creating our non-dairy flavors. However some flavors have inclusions that may contain gluten, like the cake in our birthday cake ice cream or the brownies in our chocolate brownie ice cream. Please review our allergen guide here.

Do you have any dairy-free options?

Yes, we have dairy-free frozen dessert options in our ice cream cases year-round and typically have sorbets during the summer months. Our dairy-free flavors are made with coconut milk and we offer dairy-free milkshakes made with oat milk. Check our flavor page or contact your local scoop shop for current flavor options.

Do you have sugar-free ice cream?

No, we don’t carry any sugar-free ice cream.

Do you sell gluten-free ice cream cones?

Yes, we offer gluten-free cones in addition to waffle cones and regular cake cones.

I have a nut allergy. Do you have any ice cream that is nut-free?

Many of our ice cream flavors are nut-free. However, they are all made in the same kitchen that processes nuts and served alongside products containing nuts. While we are careful with our allergens, cross-contamination is possible. If you are comfortable with that, please ask your scooper to sanitize the scoop used for your flavor prior to serving your order. Please review our allergen guide here for many of our popular flavors.

Do you make ice cream cakes?

We do not currently make or sell ice cream cakes.

Does your ice cream contain egg or egg products?
