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.

Yes, I have read about peanut oil being in some of their ice cream. Thanks for reminding me.
The rep did say that the allergens would be listed in the ingredients.So, this is something to watch out for.

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.
