Allergen information: If you're subscribed to this newsletter, you probably already know that The Merry Dairy's founding mission is to be nut- and peanut-free. Why is that? Because back when we started we knew too many people - kids especially - who had never experienced an ice cream shop because they were too allergic to nuts to go inside one. That's what our slogan "Ice Cream for All" means (thank you Allie Goodyear!). But all means more - and that is why we offer plant-based ice cream too. We're working on getting better with allergen information on all of our products, but you can always just email to find out what's in what we make. We do make almost everything in-house so that we know that we can be nut-free. Our traditional recipe for frozen custard and premium dairy ice creams do contain small amounts of pasteurized egg. Here are what some of the letters above mean:

GF = Gluten-Free - most of our flavours are gluten-free, by the way ;)
SF = Soy-Free - the only "soy" in our products is soy lecithin in flavours that contain chocolate. Otherwise, we don't use soy
V = Vegan - we use coconut milk for vegan ice creams, except for sorbets which are fruit based

All products are also nut-free, peanut-free and sesame-free!
Other allergen or ingredient questions: write!
