Most people can enjoy an ice cream sandwich without a second thought.
But people with gluten sensitivity can’t have that cookie sandwich. And people with lactose intolerance can’t have the ice cream or frozen yogurt. Unless they reach for Beachy Cream.
Gluten is a protein composite found in foods that include wheat or a number of other grains, including barley and rye.
Thus, most ice cream is naturally gluten-free. But gluten can be found in specialty flavors that use grain-based inclusions, such as cookie dough and brownies.
Beachy Cream of Malibu, California solves the problem by offering a classic ice cream sandwich: lactose-free vanilla ice cream sandwiched between gluten-free chocolate chip cookies.
Made in small batches with locally sourced, sustainable and organic ingredients, Beachy Cream’s other flavors include candied ginger ice cream on a molasses spice cookie, “hot” chocolate ice cream on a brownie cookie, Key lime ice cream on a coconut oatmeal cookie, strawberry balsamic swirl ice cream on a sugar cookie, and traditional vanilla bean ice cream on a chocolate chip cookie.

If you’re not local to Malibu, you can order the ice cream sandwiches from the company website. It’s a generous gift to soothe someone who is new to dealing with gluten intolerance.
The online store carries only an assortment of the regular line, but you can contact the store at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 1.877.299.7557.
