I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream

Edys/Dryer’s has some new gluten-free flavors out for summer.  I love that they offer “Limited Edition” seasonal flavors.  My past favorites have been pumpkin & peppermint, which are offered in the fall & winter.  Last summer they had a lemonade flavor that I ate a couple of times, though it wasn’t my favorite.  Jon is a big lemonade fan, so I thought he would like it, but he prefers mint chocolate chip or vanilla fudge ice cream.

This summer the seasonal flavors are Black Raspberry & Coconut Pineapple.  I have tried them both and I love them!  I didn’t really expect any different, but you never know, right?  I often top my ice cream with fresh berries & cacao nibs or chocolate chips and both went very well with both flavors.  In addition to tasting great, these each only have between 100 – 110 calories per serving (1/2 cup).  A wonderful, healthy way to cool off during the summer!

Edy’s/Dryers will clearly label their products if they contain gluten.  While the actual cartons don’t say “gluten-free” on them, the information online does.  All you do is click on the flavor and under the ingredient list it will say “gluten-free” if the product is safe for us to eat.

In addition to the summer flavors, Edy’s/Dryer’s now has Shakes & Smoothies!  The Shakes & Smoothies come in cups – all you have to do is add milk.  There are 8 different flavors, all of them are gluten-free with the exception of the Cookies & Cream.  Those darn cookies!  I haven’t had a chance to sample these yet, but I am sure that Jon will be thrilled to be my sampler.  I’ll have to pick them up next time I go to the grocery store.

Edy’s/Dryer’s are sold in mainstream grocery stores across the US.  Whether or not the name is Edy’s or Dryer’s depends on where you live.  Both Edy’s & Dryer’s are owned & operated by Nestle and their products are identical.

Do you have a favorite Edy’s/Dryer’s ice cream flavor?

    I really wish more companies that make ice cream would label their gluten-free options. I’m glad I don’t really care much for the chilly treat so I don’t have to worry about reading the labels on the containers. Ice cream with flavors seem to have a laundry list of ingredients. At least Edy’s lists the gluten-free info on their website which is more than many companies do.

      I know…it seems that not many others do. I also eat Breyer’s a lot, b/c even though they don’t label like Edy’s, they use minimal ingredients and it is easy to tell what is GF or not. In addition to those 2, Ciao Bella, which does label GF, has become a recent, though expensive, favorite.
