SKOWHEGAN (WGME) — It’s a sign that winter is coming to an end when Gifford’s Ice Cream stands open for the season.

To celebrate, the five stands in Skowhegan, Bangor, Waterville, Auburn and Farmington are giving out free small cones Friday from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.

Gifford’s Ice Cream stands will offer six new flavors this year, including:

  • Cranberry Choco Chip: Nut- Light cherry ice cream chock full of dark chocolate chips, craisins, and walnuts.
  • Mint Cookie Fudge– Crushed cream-filled chocolate cookies and fudge whirl through cool mint ice cream.
  • Sea Salt Caramel Truffle: Chocolate sea salt caramel mini melts in sea salt caramel flavored ice cream rippled with sea salt caramel.
  • Lemon Wafer Cookie Frozen Yogurt:– A whipped cream ripple meanders around mini vanilla wafer cookies in low-fat lemon yogurt.
  • No Fat/No Sugar Added Chocolate: Sweetened with Splenda, this smooth, chocolate frozen treat is a dieter’s dream.
  • Blueberry Pomegranate Sorbet: A sweet blueberry top note melts into the yummy flavor of pomegranate in this crisp invigorating sorbet. (Seasonal flavor available in May)
