Hodgman's Frozen Custard

1108 Lewiston Rd., New Gloucester, ME - (207) 926-3553
Hodgman's is the sort of place that calls out all summer to anyone with a sweet tooth and a love for old-fashioned Americana. It is a roadside custard shop where they make their own in only the basic flavors – vanilla and chocolate – plus one special each day. Nothing is more perfectly satisfying on a warm summer day.

This hot fudge sundae is 'Royale' because bananas are added to the formula.

To make it easier for passing motorists, Hodgman's has a sign out front with a blinking light listing the day's special flavor.

You know it's summer north of Portland when Hodgman's is open for business. It has been a nice-weather ritual around here for nearly 60 years.

In a grassy knoll to the side of the custard stand is this covered picnic area: a wonderful place to lick cones, sip frappes, or spoon into sundaes.
