LEVANT - Ice cream workers across the state had their hands full this weekend as they scooped order after order of the dessert for customers celebrating National Ice Cream Day.

A Maine summer favorite: ice cream

No one is ever too old for ice cream. From toddlers and teenagers to young couples and senior citizens, we all have a sweet spot that can only be satisfied (especially during the summer months) with an ice cream cone, banana split or milk shake. Our favorite flavors may change as we age, but ice cream is one of those universal treats we never stop enjoying.

In Maine, we are blessed to have more than a few spectacular ice cream shops that make homemade and even seasonal flavors that you just can't find anywhere else.
