Welcome to Just Answer and thanks for your question. There is no one answer carved in concrete. Some people with acid reflux have no problems with ice cream and others can't eat it. You will want to avoid chocolate and peppermint since they can reduce lower esophageal tone. It is also best to have a small amount since overloading the stomach can make acid reflux worse.
