probably off topic by now, but i think the twisted ben & jerry's you were talking about is 1/2 browinie batter and 1/2 cookie dough. i eat it when ds is sleeping, but the only kind we feed him is the breyers natural vanilla.

Wow...A lot of you are a lot more comfortable than I am. More power to you! Everytime I see a food recall on ice cream I shudder. I just can't bring myself to eat it. I would be so nervous. Luckily I went to Canada recently and had some Chapman's. Also, my boyfriend's mom makes me homemade vanilla.

I have a Cuisinart and it makes soft ice cream in 20-30 minutes (can put in freezer to harden if you like it that way). The only ingredients in the vanilla (which is awesome by the way) are heavy cream, sugar, vanilla and milk. Would be safe for the egg allergic, I think (my son is only PA). We've put in safe choc. chips and some mint flavoring and it's great, too.
I, too, have seen many ice cream recalls - too many for my comfort level. When my oldest (non-PA) had his tonsils removed two summers ago, I got the Cuisinart. It makes great sorbets, too.

NCMOM - would you mind telling me what model of ice cream maker you have. I'm thinking of getting one so my dd can enjoy some ice cream. Thanks,
Amy

I've eaten ice cream almost every day of the summer each summer for 20 years and never had a problem...I just avoid the may contains. I like Dean's the best, and North Star ice cream bars (they even make a cone type thing with 3 types of chocolate and get this-it's NOT dipped in nuts like the rest of them!)
I've had the Ben & Jerry's Twisted Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough/Brownie ice cream you guys are talking about. I didn't have a problem with it, aside from the massive sugar overload.

I just made my first batch of vanilla ice cream this morning. It is yummy. We have a Cuisinart ice cream maker. It was very easy to use and comes with recipes.
Now that my test run was successful, I will be branching out to make other flavors.

I wouldn't mind joining anything that would make companies more aware of allergies and hopefully make products safer, however I feel like there are more pressing issues than dedicated food lines. For example convincing the FDA that peanut oil should be considered an allergin and listed as such, because not all peanut oil is pressed therefore not all of it is peanut protein free. Also mandating that the drug companies list what type of lechitin (sp?) goes into a drug. I was born with my allergy 41 years ago we didn't even have ingredient lists on everything then, let alone may contain or manufactured on the same lines. Also whoever heard of toll free numbers or calling a company. I was taught to be careful read the ingredients if they are listed if not and you want it bad enough have someone taste it for you, if no one was around and I wanted to take that chance remember and these are my mom's words "You're Alone how will you get your medicine and to the hospital?" I learned quickly and always was polite in refusing.
Now on to the ice cream never not once have I ever or will I ever give up my ice cream do I read the ingredients? Of course I do. Do I worry sometimes when eating an ice cream from the local ice cream parlor? Yes definitely, but I don't live in a bubble and ice cream is literally my favorite food, next to chocolate. Yankee I feel sorry for you that you won't allow yourself to eat ice cream trust me you can't live frightened of every food everyday or you will never have any sanity. As frightening as my reactions are they are very few and I always remind myself that I have my medicine if anything should happen and unless I do something really dumb it won't. I am sorry to go off on a tangent but sometimes it upsets me more to see how some of you limit yourselves instead of embracing the life you have. I have far more medical conditions than just PA that daily restrict my life and I thank God that my mother never allowed my PA/NA to completely take over my life growing up because I believe it taught me responsibility and moderation.
Another side note some B&J ice creeam has pure soy flour in it so that may be what caused the reaction there.
btbear1 PA/NA/soy/multi drug allergies/enviromental allergies/asthma and to my horror recently injured back so I can't work I'm not asking for pity just remember life can be hard or not, now I am dependent at times on other's reading my ingredients when I can't shop for myself.
