In 1988, Dippin' Dots Founder 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. It’s no surprise that Dippin’ Dots is the number one ice cream for fun and has been loved by kids of all ages for more than two decades. Dippin' Dots are made from fresh dairy ingredients flavored with a variety of fun, fruity, enticing and even exotic flavors.
