What will you be ordering from HFD?

The HFD menu is always full of delicious summer treats; it's difficult to pick one, and nearly impossible to try them all in one summer. Could that be a challenge? Maybe? For me, the go-to HFD treat has always been the lemon freeze. It is the perfect frozen treat for any type of summer day we have in northern Maine. When that inner-child comes out in me, I'll also go for a dish of dirt. It's a real menu item and you won't regret ordering it up. The dish of dirt is a perfect treat for anyone who enjoys chocolate. Of course, you can never go wrong with a classic HFD milkshake, the only question is thick or regular?

There are a lot of options at HFD to choose from
