Gifford's Famous Ice Cream
Ranked #1 of 4 Dessert in Auburn
Restaurant details
Reviewed June 22, 2013

An outdoor street-side icecream place. Great flavors, with lots of unusual and interesting flavors. Definitely, premium icecream, which was yummy. I particularly found the chocolate sprinkles to be more tasty then most places. If in the area, I would recommend visiting this local favorite.

My first experience with blueberry ice cream was amazing. Creamy, chocked with blueberries, and wonderful texture made this a must have on any return trip to Maine. Yes, the single scoop is huge, but a bit of indulgence occasionally can be fun. There are some flavors unique to Maine so peruse the whole menu and enjoy!

Gifford's offers the best ice cream in the area. The selection is extensive. Nice large parking lot. Lots of outdoor picnic tables if you want to eat outdoors (bring a hat if the sun bothers you, though, as there were no umbrellas on any of the tables when we went there).

Not sure if it will be a regular special, but they were offering two scoops of the featured ice cream for only $1.99 the day we went.

One suggestion for the owner: There are so many oddly named varieties, that it is impossible to tell what is in each of the different kinds just by the name. How is anyone supposed to know what's in Mount Katahdin Crunch or Muddy Boots??? I felt awful having to keep asking the lady, "What's in this kind?" It would be helpful for everyone to have a list posted on each window that lets customers know what's in each type of ice cream.

Gifford's ice cream is great. They have a HUGE selection of flavors to choose from and I've never had a cone I didn't like. The portions are huge. I usually buy a child size cone (a small by most ice cream stands standards) and find that is more than enough. Great shakes and splits too. Gifford's is a Maine experience not to be missed.

I am a diabetic and like to have a small amount of ice cream every once and awhile. They do not have a kiddy size and that is not good. they force you to buy a small for 2.89 with two scoops and that is two much for me.
