“Don't settle for second best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Gifford's is by far the best ice cream in Central Maine. The servings are reasonable on a cone or in a dish. They are always trying new combinations...Moose Tracks is a favorite. You might try the mini- golf at the Waterville and Skowhegan locations.
