Blown away by the cookie sandwich I had here. Literally the best gluten-free vegan dessert I’ve ever had. My first bite lead to panicked unbelief that it could possibly be real.

I have celiac and I was very impressed with the young staff at this shop. When I ordered an ice cream sandwich with gluten free cookies the young man changed his gloves and got the cookies stored seperate from the others. He than pointed out the gluten free ice cream choices which were marked and plentiful. He asked if he should get a new scoop and or a new tub of the ice cream I choose to avoid contamination. I was very impressed and it felt great to not have to ask for these things and feel like a pain in the butt. No extra charge for gluten free either.

Very knowledgeable and cautious about cross contamination. They had GF chocolate chip cookie and GF brownie for the ice cream sandwiches. Both were delicious.

They had 2 flavors of gluten free cookie to build your ice cream sandwich with. They were very aware of cross contamination and when we ordered the gluten free cookies they asked if it was for an allergy and said they keep dedicated ice cream containers in the back to avoid any potential cross contamination with the items up front. The employee changed out her gloves before building the gluten free ice cream sandwich as well. Cookies and I cream were very tasty.

The first girl I talked to was a little confused with gluten free. She asked her coworker and she knew exactly what she was talking about and made mine in the back out of a fresh batch of icecream so there was zero cross contamination. And the price was reasonable!

First this is the best ice-cream I ever had, and I have had a lot of ice-cream from all over the world. It was deliverd to my door yesterday on Mothers Day from my son who lives in Auston Texas. The young girl who did the delivery (sorry I did not get her name), was so happy and sweet made me feel so good with her wonderful Mothers Day present Mint Chocolate Ice-cream.

I called my son and he also said that when he placed order, he also felt really great so wonderful service, best product ever and delivery with a great smile. What can you ask for more, nothing.

The ice-cream lover.
