Gluten-free Ice Cream Cones

Author: Celiac But Happy

I’m really happy with a new discovery. In Majadahonda (Madrid) there’s a new Antiu-Xixona Ice Cream Parlor (yes, the same brand of the nougat). They not only have many gluten-free ice cream flavors but also have gluten-free cones and that’s very unusual. The only place where I’ve seen this before is in Mallorca at the Heladería Dino de Palma de Mallorca. So I’m happy to have one close to home :-)

Heladería Antiu-Xixona

Yesterday I had a cone with 2 scoops of ice cream, 1 coconut and the other caramel spread. I know the combination is a bit weird but I liked.

Among gluten-free flavors they have are dark chocolate, chocolate fondant, leche merengada (sorry, don’t know the translation for this one), cappuccino, straciatella, plantain with chocolate and vanilla. They also have flavors lactose free, egg free and nut free.

The cone is sealed in plastic and is open right before serving. They clean the spoon too.

For ice cream to go they have thermal boxes of 1/2 liter or 1 liter.

The place also have coffee and pastries so you can have breakfast.

By the way, according to “the husband” (not celiac) the regular ice creams are great too.

The parlor is located in Majadahonda, at 5 Mirasierra St., right behind the City Hall. The decoration is modern with glass walls and high or regular tables. Their web page has information about the allergens of each flavor. You can also find the stores this chain has in other Spanish cities (Alicante, Cádiz, Écija).

It happens that the store next door is an herbalist and eco stuff store that carries some interesting gluten-free food, but that is another story we will tell you  about in other post.
