Dippin Dots® Information

Dippin Dots ice cream was invented by Curt Jones, a microbiologist, by super-cold freezing methods that turned the ice cream into little beads. They were first created in 1988 and currently come in many different flavors. At first bite, the flavorful ice cream is very cold, but quickly begins to melt in your mouth.
