BYOC: Bring Your Own Cone – My Gluten-Free Ice Cream at Dairy Queen

Summer is here my friends and it’s time for the lazy, hazy and crazy days of summer. And what would summer be without ice cream?

But those of us on a gluten-free diet understand that ice cream in a boring little cup is, well…. just that…boring. There’s something to be said for ice cream that is licked, slurped and thoroughly enjoyed from a good old fashioned ice cream cone. Cups just can’t stand up to a cone.

That is why I bought my own gluten-free ice cream cones on and bring my own cone to my local Dairy Queen for a soft-serve treat that is so very, very, very much appreciated by this ice-cream-loving-gluten-free gal.

For those of you who weren’t aware, Dairy Queen soft-serve ice cream is gluten-free and they also have an extensive list of gluten-free treats. Note: If ordering a Blizzard make sure they know ahead of time you’re gluten-free so they can clean the equipment  to avoid any cross-contamination.

By now I’m sure my local Dairy Queen employees knows me as “the girl that brings her own gluten-free ice cream cone”. But to me I’m just one happy gluten-free gal… taking life one single lick at a time.

    I too really enjoy dairy queen ice cream. i live at the beach, and hit dq as soon as it opens in the spring, and keep on going until late fall. i have not been brave enough to get a blizzard, as our dq is extremely busy, and i haven’t gone so far as to request cleaning on the mixer, but the soft serve is such a treat that i am satisfied with it. what type of cones do you use? i have tried some, with no joy, so would be delighted to find out which ones you like. thanks!!

    It sounds like you like Dairy Queen as much as I do! I like the Goldbaum cones. If you click the link above in the blog under the words “my own gluten-free ice cream cones” you can get the link to buy the regular cake (think the DQ regular cones) on Goldbaums also has sugar-cones too!

    Be Free!

    I am new to eliminating wheat from my diet. Our DQ is a stand alone old store walk up from the 50s and just opened for the season. I was excited to read your post about the gluten frees treats and what a great idea of ordering your own GF cones! Thanks!
