Anyone familiar with the ice cream company Marble Slab?

They started in USA and have expanded into Canada.

They claim some products free from peanut and tree nut (including trace amounts). Including ice cream cakes.

Never heard of it, but the name reminds me of Cold Stone, where they mix add-ins into ice cream on slabs of granite or marble.  Thereís nothing safe at Cold Stone; even if a given flavor was safe, everything would be X-contaminated.

Marble Slab in person would not be safe. Ever. I havenít seen prepackaged items for sale around here in grocery stores, but I havenít been inside a Marble Slab since high school.  If they have safe packaged items, I would want to try them.

The good news is, the guy working at the store was aware and honest.

He said everything is made in the store and therefore could be cross contaminated. Even the tubs are filled in the store, so they are not safe.

My husbandís uncle owns the Marble Slab brand in Canada. Nothing there is truly safe for food allergies. Unless some locations have creamer machines for nut free flavours only, it would be similar to any other ice cream shoppe making nutty and non-nutty flavours on the same equipment.

I can ask my uncle-in-law for more specifics if needed but he definitely advised me not to eat there.
