Has anyone allowed their PA child to have Mc Donald's soft serve? How about the topping (other than peanut, obviously)? I checked their site and it seems OK...I seem to remember that being a topic here not too long ago, but when I searched it, I came up empty...

We eat McDonalds soft serve ice cream with no problems. We have been told that they do not put any flavoring or toppings through the soft serve machine, and that the mix is safe.

There was a post about this some months back.
We too eat the McD softserve. We also eat the hot fudge.
We do NOT get any mix ins like m&ms etc. And peanuts are packed separately in a little sealed bag.
We've cked the website on the ice cream and the hot fudge and deemed it safe for our family. We've never had any reactions.
Hope that helps!

My son's big reaction was with ice cream, so we never eat ice cream out. (Unless Ming Tsai makes it, LOL) Too scary! But I know many others do eat McDonald's ice cream and other ice creams.

I don't feel comfortable giving any ice cream because of the toppings, but I take my daughter to McDonalds frequently, and have never had a problem with their other foods.

We have eaten soft serve ice cream from here, along with the hot fudge sundae. They actually pulled out the ice cream package and let me read it. That was good for me. They have also done the same with the pies. I need to double check those. Other than that we don't eat from here.

We too have allowed my PA son to have the soft serve from McDonalds. It's one of the few treats he can enjoy out as we are quite cautious. I am pleased to read that the hot fudge is okay too. We have steered clear of toppings all together. Nice to know he can have that too!!

Nicole, please double check that to make sure they have not changed it. The last time we checked we were still ok, but that has been a few months. It doesn't seem like long, but they change stuff so fast.

I have been eating McD's soft serve and hot fudge for years and have never had a problem. Also, if you contact McDonald's through their toll-free number they will give specific ingredient and product information.
They seem to be on top of things when it comes to food allergies and cross-contamination prevention with their products.
