Did you check their website? I think they might have ingredients listed, but I'm not sure. Also, a call to that specific McDonald's that you use would probably be helpful.

This will be a confort zone issue. We have gotten McDonalds ice cream cones. I would also allow a sundae because the nuts are package seperate for those who ask. I would not get a McFlurry though. That is my comfort zone....everyone will be different on this topic

Last time I checked, McD's website has detailed allergen information, and the plain ice cream sundae was fine. We've had it before with no problems (obviously declining the sealed package of peanuts). But as said above, it's a "comfort zone" thing. Some of the mixings in the McFlurries do contain peanuts.

In the past I've wondered whether to try the ice cream at McDonalds. When I mentioned this to the teachers at our nursery school, they said that their experience with several local McDonald restaurants is that the ice cream seems to give their students (young kids, ages 3-5) an upset stomach. These are the students who don't have any FA's. I wonder if it is their cleaning protocols for their machines. We were advised that Wendy's Frosties were less likely to cause stomach aches and we have stuck with them when in need of ice cream while out of the house - and have had good luck with Wendy's. Of course, the non FA members of the family prefer Frosties to any McD's ice cream product so we were lucky that way too.

We are with Chanda...we eat the cones and sundaes, as well as the milkshakes. However do not eat the Flurries, as they make them with M & M's and it says right on the cup that they may contain peanuts.
The peanuts have alwasy been in the little packets when we have purchased these. And we have gotten them alot, especially when the weather warms up.

Hello, I agree with the others that have posted. It is a comfort zone thing.
Personally my son has had 2 mystery reactions while eating them.. Both times he spit it out and said it burned his mouth?

We're in the McD's boat too. We have the ice cream cones and sundaes with no problems.

I have allowed soft ice cream from mcdonalds. I also have allowed frosty's from wendy's.
My son doesn't love ice cream, so it's not very often that he even asks for it.

so does the same apply to Canada then? Everyone feel it's safe to give Mc Donalds plain (twist flavor too?) icecream and Wendy's frosty's? Just want to make sure as I am thinking of getting some too today when I take my kiddies out for icecream (I am TNA/PA)
