Are these creamy in texture? If I can find something for him that is kind of creamy, but not ice cream that would be a great switch for him. Thanks for the reply.

Hello EVERYONE!!!!
It's me again, Alex Plotkin-owner/co-founder of PHILLYSWIRL!!! Since my last posting I have spoken to more then 200 parents with children who have peanut/tree nut allergy. One of the parents actually sent me numerous articles which I used to educate myself with this allergy. I have since realized that the grocery stores, their corporate buyers as well as the general public is completely uneducated about this issue. We now have an opportunity to produce any flavor of ice cream with the exception of those that contains peanut/tree nuts. We are currently equipped to handle any demand that the grocery stores around the U.S. and Canada are willing to put on us. IF you could possibly educate the ice cream buyers around the country, the way you have educated myself and my company, then I foresee tremendous opportunity for more children and families to enjoy these peanut free products. Somehow we must make the buyers understand the not only the large numbers of people dealing with this allergy, but how loyal these type of customers can be to the store who takes the step to make a priority to have peanut free families in mind when he or she chooses their dessert category, this will make all the difference in the world. Our Zachary will turn 1 on April 24th at 6:24 am. Fortunately, his allergy is to dairy products and NOT the deadly peanut/tree nuts. BUT still when he comes in contact with dairy he has difficult time breathing through the coughing and sneezing. I completely understand what it's like NOT to be able to give him something that every other child around him can enjoy and that breaks our hearts. Once again, if anyone should have any questions/comments/suggestions, PLEASE call me on my cell phone (813.477.41.59) and since it's a long distance call, I promise that I will call you immediately back. Also, you can call our toll free number which is 1.877.379.47.57. Unfortunately, it's sometimes difficult to reach me at my office, so please leave a detailed message and I promise that I will call you back ASAP!! Thank you so much for all your support. Take care.

Alex,
There are NO brands of ice cream that I currently feel are safe to feed my peanut- and tree-nut-allergic son. None. The only time my son has ice cream, we make it for him (which is quite a production, so we don't do it very often).
If you were to produce an ice cream that doesn't have any chance of being cross-contaminated with nut ingredients, I know it would sell quite well. *I* would definitely buy a lot of it to give to my kids! Be sure to put some wording on the label that says "nut free," and folks with nut allergies will buy it.
As it is, we're planning to try the Philly Swirl products as soon as the weather gets a little warmer. I know my son will love them!!

P.S. I'm going to request that my local Albertson's start carrying the Philly Swirl products. Our Costco already does, but Albertson's (where we usually shop) doesn't.

They have new products out. No ice cream in a cup yet, but it is on a stick. My 2 year old DD loves them. I now have 3 boxes of Philly Swirl in my freezer!

I'll have to check our Costco for the new flavors. We don't keep that many sweets on hand, but I usually grab a box of the original ones whenever I'm in Wal-Mart, just to make sure they know there's a demand for them!
Glad this thread was posted -- I almost left them out in the car tonight... :P
