Dippin’ Dots are tiny beads of ice cream, yogurt, sherbet and flavoured 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!
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.
Ice Cream lovers find Dippin’ Dots the world over at theme parks, malls, fairs, festivals, movie theatres, stadiums and arenas. Franchisees also have Dippin’ Dots retail stores in commercial areas and shopping malls.
