I was super excited when I learned that Mr. Dewie’s, one of my favorite store bought ice creams opened up a scoop shop in Albany. There ice cream has always been creamier than other non-dairy brands and has been a nice splurge in the past. I finally made my way up there with my dad one day to give them a try.
Upon walking in the owners seemed to both be there and were eager to explain the concept. They are not 100% gluten free when it comes to their cones. Their homemade waffle cones are gluten free, but they buy pre-made non gluten free cones as well. They explained that the chances of cross-contamination are slim and they make it a point to try and prevent the scoop from touching the cone. That explanation worked for me since they had an understanding of what celiac was and were prepared for all of my questions.
They are almost 100% vegan, the only thing that isn’t is the lemon cookie ice cream which has egg in the cookie pieces. Once trying a few of the flavors we both ended up getting double scoops in the gluten free waffle cone (+$1). I ended up getting strawberry and orange chip. Both were delicious with the gluten free buckwheat cone. The cone was kinda chewy which actually made it really good. We both thoroughly enjoyed our treats and will be back again for more! If you're in the area and have a dairy allergy this is definitely a place to stop by!
