We very very rarely eat here...only when travelling. I found this and though it was neat. You can drag the items to your "tray" and look up the ingredients in everything.

Very user friendly, I really like their format. I called our McDonalds (haven't eaten there in 2 1/2 years), they said If my husband or myself went inside to order at non peak times they would be able to serve a safe ice cream. It is safe ingredients wise but with all the sesame especially in there I don't trust anything. They would open a new cones box and use clean gloves. This isn't such an issue asap but I slowly see 'treats' while out becoming an issue. He freaked at costco the other day seeing other kids all eating fries and ice cream!!! I like to have my options ready even if I don't plan to use them. :wink:

Nice to know if I eat at Rotten Ronnie's, I won't die from my allergies. :D But seriously, at least if I'm in a pickle I know it's a "safe" place to eat.

DS had his first ever ice cream cone while out today :swing . I went into McDonalds at a slow time (not with DS) and asked for the manager straight off. I explained our situation and he gladly opened a new box of cones so our son could have an ice cream cone. The ingredients themselves were safe but the cross contamination due especially to sesame in McDonalds freaks me out.
I tried not to stare too much as DS ate his cone, I swear we are giving him a complex :roll: . All was fine and he loved it!!!!

I still do that with my teenager when eating out! It is tough to stop even though she eats out without me...
