Luke's Story

Meet Luke Cerrone. When Luke was 4 years old, he simply stopped growing. It took months of research and many doctor visits before Luke's parents learned he had celiac disease--a disease that affects how the body digests wheat, barley, rye and oat products. Once Luke stopped eating these foods, he grew 6 inches in one year!


Luke's fondness for ice cream is why the Cerrone Cone--a gluten-free waffle cone--was developed. After all, kids shouldn't have to grow up without experiencing the joy--not to mention the wonderful messiness--of eating their favorite flavor from a cone.

Today, Luke is a healthy, vibrant 10 year old, who loves drawing, fishing and sports. He fills his plate with lean meat, fish and fresh vegetables, even hot dogs--minus the bun. And he thinks his mom and dad are pretty cool for creating an ice cream cone that's safe--and yummy--for him to eat.

To help others with celiac disease, the Cerrone family gratefully donates a portion of Cerrone Cone profits to celiac research.
