Great place! The gf ice cream cookie was amazing. Definitely big enough for 2. No worries with cross contamination. They were very careful.

Ice cream sandwich was huge and great. I wouldn't trust anything else. On a second trip they were out of the sandwiches and offered to make me one on the spot but after some questions, it was clear it would be cross contaminated. You can also just get one of the cookies the sandwich is made with, which are really good too.

So I should have read the reviews first and realized my mistake after I took a bite of the cherry oblivion (GF). If cross contamination isn’t an issue for you then you’re fine but DON’T do the regular scoop ice cream. While they do have an “allergy scoop” that they clean separately and sanitize they don’t only use that scoop for the GF flavors. They have the standard metal scoops they use for all the ice creams and then rinse them all in a little soak sink. I definitely got sick this evening from it. However I was with my family and everyone loved their flavors and the portions are huge! I should have just stuck with the soft serve like I normally do. But would be willing to try the sandwich everyone else is raving about.

Gf ice cream sandwich was HUGE and delicious! Didn't make me sick. I wouldn't trust the hand scooped ice cream. One scoop used for all the flavors, so definitely cross contaminated. (I'm a celiac.)

One word: WOW! The GF cookie ice cream sandwich is gigantic but worth every bite! It can easily be shared between two people. Hey offer several ice cream flavors also and all are clearly marked GF.

Just tried to go tonight and they have eliminated several of their dairy-free options including coconut milk-based. They still have them posted on their website, and the customers in front of us were also seeking this and were disappointed. Worthless trip! We walked away without anything.

Always make a stop here when we are in town. Their GF ice cream sandwiches are a favorite! All GF options are delicious. The staff is always kind, knowledgeable and understanding and always willing to double check ingredients. Such a gem!

I was so excited to try their gluten free ice cream sandwich. It was all I could talk about doing when I got to cocoa beach I'm going to eat a huge gf ice cram sandwich I don't get to have things like this very often in fact it's been 9 years ago that I found out that I had celiac. Anyways THEY WERE OUT! In fact the kid working said they were almost out of everything! How could this happened it's advertised all over! So disappointed I did end up getting some just ok ice cream wasn't impressed for the price:(

Excellent ice cream and treats and they even make their own gf ice cream cookie sandwich with two huge gf chocolate chip cookies! It looked delicious but was too big for me to try this time as we had just eaten lunch.
