Additional Allergen Notes*

I asked Hudsonville why wheat was listed under “may contain” but not milk or peanuts. They provided a very thorough explanation that the “may contain” is due to an ingredient with potential wheat cross contamination. They practice allergen safety for potential cross-contamination within their facility.:

Hudsonville Ice Cream takes great pride in its procedures to ensure quality and safety of every product. While the dairy-free product is made using the same equipment as flavors containing milk, egg, soy, wheat, peanut and tree nuts, there are procedures in place at their plant to prevent cross-contamination from these allergens internally.

That being said, there is a small chance the flavors may contain gluten as part of the oat powder. This is because wheat and oats are grown next to each other in the field (or one year a field will grow wheat and the next year oats) and/or are processed on the same equipment. This can lead to cross-contamination during the harvest process, which is why we note this product may contain gluten.

As a dairy-free consumer, keep in mind that almost all brands of dairy-free ice cream are made on shared equipment with dairy-based ice cream, even if there is no “may contain” statement. So the contentiousness and labeling of Hudsonville is standard in the industry.

I’ve had a couple of flavors, and I must say … Hudsonville Dairy-Free Frozen desserts need a LOT of work. Especially Birthday Cake flavor. The only thing Birthday about it is a few colorful sprinkles … I’ve NEVER had a birthday cake leave me with the taste of regret. I’ll stick with almond milk frozen desserts from Ben & Jerry’s and So Delicious.

I gave the mint fudge cookie and caramel cookie dough a whirl this past weekend. While I LOVE that it actually very creamy and no need to let it melt a bit before sticking a spoon right in, I was sad at how little mint and cookie were in the mint fudge cookie one and how little cookie dough was in the the caramel cookie. I will definitely be giving the other flavors a try as well.
