The legendary toy store, FAO Schwarz, known for its one-of-a-kind products, now offers America’s most fun ice cream – Dippin’ Dots Ice Cream among the amazing assortment available in its Fifth Avenue location.
“The first time I meet someone they almost immediately and instinctively tell me about the first time they had Dippin’ Dots,” said Curt Jones, founder and president of Dippin’ Dots, Inc. “and those are often cherished childhood memories.”
Stationed on Level Two of the store, fans and first-timers of the original beaded ice cream can indulge in a selection of half a dozen flavors of the delicious frozen dessert, including flavors like Cookies ‘n Cream with Oreo®, Cotton Candy, Mint Chocolate and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. Additional fan favorite flavors will be added on a rotating basis.
The Dippin’ Dots location inside FAO Schwarz is operated by Dippin’ Dots franchisee Brad Maslan, who also provides Dippin’ Dots for a variety of catered events throughout the New York tri-state area, including bar/bat mitzvahs, sweet 16’s, weddings, birthday parties, school events and fundraisers.
“New Yorkers have been asking for a Dippin’ Dots retail location in the city for a long time, and I’m thrilled to be able to meet that need,” said Maslan.
Dippin’ Dots are tiny, flash frozen beads of ice cream, yogurt, sherbet and flavored ice. Invented in 1988 by microbiologist and entrepreneur Curt Jones, Dippin’ Dots offers more than thirty different flavors, plus seasonal flavors. The company’s administrative and production headquarters are located in Paducah, Kentucky.
