With five generations of know-how, it’s no wonder that Gifford’s Ice Cream has received its share of national and international awards, like World’s Best Vanilla (four times), or World’s Best Chocolate (five times) or World Dairy Grand Champion five years in a row. But perhaps the sweetest awards are those like the People’s Choice 1st Place for our Campfire S’mores, won at the New Jersey Ice Cream Festival. The truth is, while we think awards are great, we slow churn our flavors for the unapologetic ice cream lover in each of us, so smiles are the only reward we need.
