Yet another reason to <3 Ben and Jerry's

What's for Dinner Wednesday has changed names again
and is now What Can I Eat that's Gluten Free?


This week, we are focusing on cold treats, and so I am featuring Ben & Jerry's. My birthday was Sunday, and I love ice cream cake, but I haven't been able to enjoy any for a while. Ben & Jerry's is my new hero. See, the Dairy Queen, Carvel, and Maggie Moo's cakes all have a cookie crumble or cake layer or both, but Ben & Jerry's allows you to have a gluten-free cake.


You have two options: all ice cream or you can bring in your own filling. You can bring in cookies or brownies, whichever you like, and then you place a special order. The Ben & Jerry's that I visited had a binder at the counter that listed all the gluten free ice creams. I chose Phish Food and Vanilla, chose my cake style, and handed over my brownies. The clerk wrote "GLUTEN FREE - USE CUSTOMER BROWNIES" in the special instructions. Even better: we got a discount for bringing in our own brownies.


I came back a day and a half later to pick it up, and it looked good and tasted good, too.

  2. I can't stop drooling long enough to comment. I'm glad you could have your favorite cake. Phish Food is my second favorite B&J flavor. I'm sure you can guess the first.

  6. I'm so excited! My husband used to buy me an ice cream cake for my bday, but I haven't had one since I was diagnosed with celiac disease. Unfortunately, my bday was just last month. I'll have to get one anyway. Thanks for sharing this information!
