What are Dippin dots? Besides being tiny beads of pure taste excitement, these innovative treats are ice cream, yogurt, and sherbet that’s frozen using a state-of-the-art process of cryogenic proportions! Invented in 1988 by Curt Jones in his parent’s garage, and marketed at various amusement parks, this frosty treat was soon a monumental success, with its first official debut occurring in 1995 in Japan. How are Dippin dots made? According to the company, Jones, a microbiologist by trade, utilized his knowledge of cryogenic technology and developed a way to create a new confection by flash freezing ice cream mix in liquid nitrogen to -320°F. The end product must be stored at temperatures below -40 °F, which is why it is only offered at specialty outlets along with its sister popcorn franchise, Doc Popcorn! Currently produced in Paducah, Kentucky, these BBs of frozen delight are an American dream come true!

Fun Fact- Dippin dots flavors are as wild or as mild as you can imagine! From Banana Split, Birthday Cake, Brownie Batter, to Cool Mint Crunch, Cold Brew Latte, and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, the frozen dots come in a flavor you’ll love! Of course, there’s also your all-time favorite Vanilla, Chocolate, and Strawberry, and limited editions such as Pumpkin Spice Pie, and Spookies and Cream for Halloween. Because they are made using liquid nitrogen, people often ask if the ice cream beads contain that as an ingredient. According to the company, they do not, as the nitrogen is expelled during the production process! Nonetheless, it’s still a challenge to find a place that sells these icy treats, and that’s where rainbow candy saves the day! Order a whole bunch from Candy Warehouse and enjoy the delicious flavor of these delectable dots right in your home, no cryo-freezer needed!
