Where can I find the Nutritional Information for your products?

Visit our Nutritional Info page of the Menu section. All our flavors are prepared from our chocolate or vanilla bases. The nutritional content of each of our flavors may vary somewhat from that of its base, depending on the add-ins used for the flavor.

Does Bruster’s ice cream contain nuts?

We make all of our products fresh in our stores each and every day. We have two ice cream machines in which we make all of the products. The machines are sterilized before we start and rinsed between batches. No peanuts are put through the machine. If peanut butter is used, the machines are rinsed and sanitized. Please note, there are A LOT of peanuts in our stores. We can not give a 100% guarantee that there will be no cross contamination. Please make sure your scooper is aware of any allergy.

Does Bruster’s make a gluten-free ice cream?

We do not consider our ice cream gluten free. The vanilla and chocolate base that we use does not contain any gluten, but we make our ice cream flavor over flavor, which means there may be microscopic traces of gluten from other “add-ins” left in the machines even though they are rinsed between flavors.
