A local store has started carrying some Nestle Ice Cream. I remember seeing the mini ice cream sandwiches and I think they had some type of fudge bars. I read somewhere online that Nestle acquired Dreyer's brand.It also says "Dreyer's" in the fine print on the back of the boxes.
Just wondering if anyone out there uses these???

The only nestle US ice cream we have tried (and trusted) is the pushups. I called and don't remember exactly what they told me but we (the rep and I) came to the conclusion that the pushups were the safest.

Thanks Gale! Well, I just got off the phone with Nestle and the rep said that they run the ice cream on shared lines, but the "Push up" ice cream is run on a dedicated line. So, that's good news!
They seem to be about as careful as all the other companies about all the other ice cream products.So, it will be a comfort zone decision.
The number to call is 1-800-441-2525

Oh and forgot about this. I didn't know about them merging but be careful of dreyer's if your child has reactions to peanut oil. they don't consider peanut oil to be an allergen.

Tidinia, she specifically stated that the push pops were run on a dedicated line.
DS has had the push up pops lots of times, because the other store did carry these,and all I've ever seen in these were the sherbet ones. Lately, I have seen the Scooby Doo ones, but they did have them with the Flintstones.
I didn't ask about any nut flavors in the Push ups. I guess I'm assuming, but I've never seen anything but sherbet in these.

They will list it if it's in the actual ingredients, but they supposedly don't take the same precautions with it as far as cross contamination as they do with other allergens like peanuts and nuts. So they might run a flavor right after the flavor that has peanut oil and not put a may contain label or may not do as thorough a cleaning as they would after running a batch with peanuts in it. It's been a long time since I called so maybe someone who has talked with them recently about this will post.

I was just looking at the dreyer's site and a flavor that contains peanut oil also says "nut allergen free". Some people *do* react to peanut oil so I don't trust them at all.

Note: Edy's is the same as Dreyer's - just depends which side of the US you are on.
The only flavor I've ever seen peanut oil in for Dreyer's is the Nestle Tollhouse Cookie Dough. It does amazingly say nut allergen free. (though peanuts are not nuts now are they?) So, they really are telling the truth.
I did write to them a while back and pointed this out, referencing Dr. Weisner's website where he talks about the grades of peanut oil. I never heard back. I've also never had a reaction or questionable response to Dreyer's (and I've eaten just about every flavor that doesn't have nuts, peanuts, or a may contain warning) --- and a lot of their products do have a may contain warning.

Tidina, it just depends on your comfort level with icecream manufacturers and their individual procedures.
Unless someone here posts something specific about a cross-contamination incident, I trust the labels and "major" manufacturers. I tend to not use store brands b/c the specific manufacturer can change often.
I regularly consume Ben & Jerry's (see my other posts by searching) in the US, Dreyer's/Edy's, and Breyer's. I've personally never had an incident. I'm TNA (high score for almonds) and severely PA. I take everything anyone says on here about specific food brands with a grain of salt b/c many are dealing with multiple food allergies (like dairy, soy, egg), as, I'm comfortable with anyone taking my posts with a grain of salt too.
If you are worried about icecream, but want to fully enjoy the pleasure...I love my Cuisinart Icecream maker. It's easy, even the cooked custard recipes are easy (and very very delicious!) That way, you know can buy safe ingredients to use in the recipes, but still enjoy yummy numbers like cookie dough, cookies and cream, mint chip, etc.

Tidina and everyone interested----
I called Nestle back and asked about the Ice Cream varieties of push ups (I wasn't aware that they came in anything but sherbet) and I talked with "Donna" and she checked and said that they are produced also on a dedicated line! I guess now my work is to check the push ups for peanut oil.
It never ends does it?? LOL!
Anyway, I personally think so far it's looking pretty safe for my comfort level.

Too bad we don't live closer Tidinia! It would be fun to get together.
About the ice cream--- Maybe, you or someone else could call, you see I didn't even think to ask those kind of questions.
I do know that neither operator mentioned anything about it being produced anywhere else and I kind of think it would be some type of machine that drops the ice cream in such a way????
I feel like they would have told me different if there were other "info" that I needed to know, but you never know.
Anyway, the number is 1-800-441-2525.

...just a follow-up...
I was in Bashas tonight and looked at Dreyers (it was on sale). I read the ingredients for every icecream that didn't blantantly have a peanut product or nuts (I'm TNA). All the Girl Scout limited edition flavors had a May Contain Peanuts warning. The only flavor that had peanut oil was the Nestle Toll House Cookie Dough, and, it was the cookie dough that has the peanut oil! So, however they are getting the Nestle cookie dough, that formula has peanut oil in it.

Thanks for calling Tidina! Maybe, others will call and we'll see what kind of responses they get. If this is true, then that's ice cream made on a dedicated line!
Since you and I both talked to different reps, I think this is hopefully true.

In addition, since our Push-Up(r) Treats are made uniquely they are the only products we manufacture that are on a dedicated line. Please feel free to contact our consumer relations department at the number below should you require any further specifics.
AND THERE WAS NO NUMBER IN EMAIL?????????

Anyway, since that is the 3rd response that we've gotten concerning the push-ups being on a dedicated line, I believe they must be. I have considered them safe for my comfort zone.
Thanks Tidina for contacting them!

DS has had the Scooby Doo pushups before. I called on them and they told me dedicated line also. This was last summer. They said something about a popscicle too but I forgot what it was called. Those and bomb pops are about the only frozen treats he has had since PA diagnosis. Before that I used to share my popsicles with him (they were a really cheap brand from walmart) and thank God he never reacted to them because I had no clue about his allergy yet.
