What is Dippin' Dots? To answer the question, Dippin' Dots are made from fresh dairy ingredients flavored with fun, fruity, enticing and even exotic flavors. The mixture is frozen almost instantly in liquid nitrogen, a common element in the atmosphere used commercially for flash freezing. After production, Dippin' Dots are packaged and shipped worldwide
In 1988, Dippin' Dots Founder and Chairman Curt Jones changed the way the world enjoys ice cream. Jones, a microbiologist, pioneered the process of cryogenic encapsulation...a scientific way of saying he used super-cold freezing methods to make little beads of ice cream. Not only were the ice cream beads delicious and fun to eat, Jones knew that flash-freezing the ice cream ingredients would lock in flavor and freshness. With those qualities established, Dippin' Dots were ready to take on the world!
A retail store in Lexington, Kentucky...gatherings of friends and family in Jones' hometown in Pulaski County, IL...and locations inside one of the nation's premiere amusement parks, Opryland USA, helped form what Dippin' Dots is today. The ice cream now has a home in thousands of locations worldwide in theme parks, fairs & festivals and franchised store locations.
