assalaamu alaikum,

Could you please tell me whether ice cream from the ice cream van in uk is halal?

Query sent - Reply to query:
no i mean ice cream from the the ice cream van. its not a specific van, they are all over the country. They play the sound of music as they drive around and people go up and buy ice cream. you must have seen them. the ice cream they give does not come in a packaging and so has no barcode or anything.

We do not know the Halaal status of such ice cream as we do not know their ingredients. Perhaps the ice cream man may be able to advise you further. Certainly, each ice cream van have their own suppliers and hence ingredients vary from that company.

And Allah knows best,
