Due to the extremely sensitive nature of some allergies, we approach allergens seriously and exercise caution in judging which products may contain trace amounts of allergens.
Products containing Artificial Colorant or Food Dye
None of our products contain artificial colours.
Products containing Peanuts
We usually have no peanuts in the shop.
Date of last Production involving Peanuts: April 21, 2023
NOTE: On occasion, we make a Peanut Butter Cup Gelato that is prepared with utmost care in handling, then immediately pack it into Pints and store it separately from our other products. We take the brief usage of peanuts very seriously and only offer this Gelato approximately once a year. If you have concerns, please let us know.
Products containing Tree Nuts
All of our chocolates, gelato, sorbet and cones may contain traces of tree nuts. We consistently use Hazelnuts, Pistachio, Cashews, Pecans, Almonds and occasionally Macadamia Nuts.

The safest selections in our Gelato Cabinet include lighter coloured Gelato such as Vanilla Bean, White Chocolate Raspberry, Stracciatella, Lavender Honey plus all Sorbets as they are run first in the day.

Products containing Alcohol
Some of our chocolates contain alcohol used as a preservative and to add flavour and “wake up the palette.” The alcohol content is minimal at 1-5% of the total ingredients and only adds a slight “mouth feel,” as when you add a bit of wine to pasta sauce.
