For many Washingtonians, the Gifford name evokes pleasant memories of ice cream, summer and family fun. But a new memoir says the Maryland-based family who owned a series of beloved ice cream and candy shops around the region was anything but happy. In his new book, the heir-apparent to the family business, Andrew Gifford, paints a complicated portrait of his grandfather, the company’s founder; his father, the last family owner; and his mother. In investigating the public downfall of his family’s company, Gifford reveals the private tragedies that plagued him throughout childhood and exposes a local story of loss.
