Free ice cream tomorrow (really!)

Family-owned Gifford’s Ice Cream kicks off its 30th-anniversary season, tomorrow, Friday, March 19, by offering free, small ice cream cones from 6-8 p.m. at its five Maine stands: Skowhegan, Farmington, Bangor, Waterville, and Auburn.

Of course, if that’s not enough, you can splurge on other tasty treats including old-fashioned ice cream sodas, brownie-n-cream sundaes, ice cream cakes, banana splits, sundaes, parfaits, frappes and freezes. And don’t forget your dog: Gifford’s has a special dog bone sundae.

Want to know why Gifford’s tastes so great? The company makes its ice cream from fresh, pasteurized, growth-hormone-free cream and milk that comes exclusively from independent family farms in Maine and it uses premium ingredients, such as real Maine maple syrup.

Since I’m a chocoholic, I’m opting for chocolate. Gifford’s twice has been recognized as “World’s Best Chocolate” at the World Dairy Expo.  And watch for this: Late last year, Gifford’s caught the attention of producers at Food Network’s “Unwrapped,” and the local favorite will be featured in an April 2010 episode titled “21st Century Chocolate.
