Thomaston — When Kendrick Dorman founded an ice cream shop in 1951, wonder if he knew what a cold gold mine he had started.

Vanilla, chocolate — twisted together or scooped separately — the outcome is the same ... pure enjoyment.

Dorman's family continues to keep Dorman's Dairy Dream running in the spring and summer. Anna Sanborn, the great-grandchild of Dorman, is back for her eighth season scooping ice cream and making people smile. Cousin Felicia Robinson is in her 12th season.

Sanborn took a few minutes to answer these five questions:

How many flavors do you offer?

"Oh, a lot .... 22."

What is the most popular flavor?


How many gallons of ice cream do you scoop per day?

"Wow, close to 70 gallons ... 11 of those are pistachio."

Do people prefer a cone or a dish?

"It's about 50/50 I think."

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
