Ice cream flavors to really scream about 


There is something fantastically simple and complex about odd ice cream flavors. By the time your brain freezes, your mind is blown by what you are actually putting into your mouth. It's the Food Network meets 'Fear Factor' for the not-so-daring frozen food lovers. If that sounds like you, then listen up. This is your treasure map to chilly confections that make vanilla and the usual suspects (I'm looking at you, twist) seem, well, vanilla.

BANGOR - Seeing a 13-foot-high giant boot on wheels on Maine's roadways will definitely cause you to do a double take. Those who were fortunate enough to visit any of Gifford's ice cream locations over the weekend got the chance to glance at the famous L.L. Bean Bootmobile as many times as they liked. Some even took the opportunity to snatch a photo beside it and talk to the man behind the wheel.

"I think it's pretty cool," said Allison Kent of Connecticut. "The driver said they were just in Connecticut but I missed it."

Eric Smith is one of the Bootmobile drivers. He said the vehicle, which is a replica of L.L. Bean's famous winter boot, was specifically made to celebrate the company's 100th anniversary.
