We have a 'regular' Friendly's ice cream place that we have been going to since before we discovered Cassie's peanut allergy in North Attleboro, MA. When we found out about her allergy, we checked with our servers, who always were very good about providing us with a clean ice cream scoop, very accomodating as far as the peanut allergy goes.

Today we were shoping at the Wrentham Outlets in MA. I stopped into the Friendly's there to find out if they would be able to do the same thing, new scoop etc, (before we told the girls we could eat there). The manager said absolutely, just to speak with her or let the server know, they would hit the 'allergy button' and we would be all set. When we did finally stop there at the end of our shopping, the manager came over to us after we were seated, cleared up confusion about the oil in the fry-o-laters (soybean, not peanut due to the allergen problem!) OUr server got confused. The manager then said, the would hit the allergy button as our order was placed, and she told our server to have a specific ice cream guy make our desserts, she would make sure he was aware of us.

I was so amazed at how great they were. We were there right before closing, and as our ice creams were being prepared, I could hear the server and ice cream scooper guy talking about our order, to ensure that it was fine.

Just thought I would pass it along, maybe this makes Friendly's a more friendly place for some of you who would like to take your peanut allergy kids (or selves!) out to ice cream!
