Gifford’s Famous Ice Cream, award-winning ice cream from a small town in Maine, is launching its line of creamy, delicious vintage-made ice cream into greater Washington, D.C. with a summer-long Good Times Ice Cream Tour - and on Sunday night, I was lucky enough to host the kickoff party for local bloggers and social media influencers!
Gifford's arrived at Dulles Golf & Sports Park to greet 50 bloggers and their families in a colorful, state-of-the art ice cream truck, equipped with freezers and loads of award-winning ice cream. Guests met with Lindsay Gifford-Skilling, Gifford's GM and fifth generation ice cream maker, and her brother JC.
The kids lined up and enjoyed sampling the flavors and creating their own sundaes! The ice cream was DELICIOUS! I got the last dish of French Vanilla and I only needed one bite to realize that this is real, old fashioned ice cream. It was so good, I didn't want to add any of the hot fudge, whipped cream or sprinkles :) Afterwards, we all got to enjoy access to the driving range, mini golf course, batting cages, and mining for gems.
The Gifford's Ice Cream truck is scheduled to appear at more than 70 events in the Washington D.C. area giving away FREE ice cream throughout the summer. Fans of delicious, creamy ice cream are invited to follow the truck @GiffordsMaine on Twitter to find out where it will be next! If you want the truck to come to your neck of the woods, you can tweet the truck using hashtag #FreeGiffordsIceCream and your city!
Where can you find this super creamy treat? Gifford’s is now at Whole Foods Markets, Balducci’s, and Wawas in the Washington D.C. area.
