Dippin' Dots are tiny beads of ice cream, yogurt, sherbet and flavored ice. Microbiologist Curt Jones used his background in cryogenic technology to invent Dippin' Dots in 1988. His invention is now considered the unique, futuristic and fun way to eat ice cream!
No. Dippin' Dots ice cream is flash frozen and can still melt if not stored at the appropriate temperature.
The foods that the astronauts eat during their space missions are freeze-dried and in the case of ice cream, do not melt.
Much like microwave ovens revolutionized the way we cook, Dippin' Dots is revolutionizing the way we think of ice cream. Our high-tech cryogenic freezing process is a highly advanced method of ice cream production, unique within the ice cream industry.
Dippin' Dots are beads of cryogenically frozen ice cream. We use a combination of natural ice cream ingredients, the same found in conventional ice cream, and flash freeze it into tiny beads. The ice cream is then packaged and shipped to our retailers. All Dippin' Dots for our domestic customers are produced at our headquarters in Paducah, Kentucky.
Just for fun! Kids (of all ages) can actually play with their food as they roll the little beads of Dippin' Dots around in their cups!
