Lewiston: Hibbard's announces contest winner, new custard flavorsby jmaloni
As part of its 75th anniversary celebration last weekend, Hibbard's Original Frozen Custard invited patrons to enter a contest and come up with a new custard flavor.
Ann Orton of Lockport thought up the winning recipe: "coconut obsession," which combines coconut custard with almonds and chocolate chips.
Orton received a $25 gift certificate for her entry. This new custard flavor will be named after Ann. Hibbard's will start serving it next week.
Hibbard's staffers received a number of votes for "s'mores custard," and plan to add this flavor to the roster within the next two weeks, as well.
In total, almost 300 custard flavor entries were received.
"Thank you to all who took the time to enter, and thank you to all who participated in our 75th anniversary weekend," Kris Trunzo said. "You are the reason we have been around for 75 years."
Anniversary prize winners - all Lewiston residents - included Kelly Easterly, who took home a tablet; Paul Fitzpatrick, who won a television; and Owen Patrick, who received a bicycle with his custard.
