Snarty tells us more.
hey thanks for the comments guys. to answer a few questions neither the kid nor the parent knew he was allergic. aparently he reacted to the red food coloring which caused him to break out in a full body rash the poor little guy was so upset. but now we know he isn't allergic to all ice cream so I told him and the mom they will have free ice cream on me for the rest of the year... as long as it doesn't have red dye! Thanks to all who commented, Cheers!

Maybe he was allergic to nuts and the ice cream didn't contain nuts but was processed using articles which had come into contact with nuts. That's why food is forced to be labeled if it's from a facility that also uses common allergens (at least it's so here in the states)
your action was meant to be a sweet gesture. don't beat yourself up over it, OP
He screams, his mother screams, his whole family screams "sue!!!!!11!"
A good gesture that can end in a pile of bills the parents may not even be able to afford. In March I was rushed to the hospital. The ambo ride alone is over $600 bucks. I'm not saying op did a bad thing or should be sued. It was an accident and it sucks for everyone involved. But if the parents do get angry, it could stem from worry about their kid as well as other strains this incident can put on them. The kid may have been told no by the parents about the ice cream because of food allergies. And depending on the age, the kid may not understand. Situations like this just suck all around.
