More Info About Dippin’ Dots
Few products can claim to have “re-invented” one of the world’s best-known treats.

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. 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.

Everyone remembers their first Dippin’ Dots experience — the chill of the first bite and the explosion of flavor as the dots begin to melt in their mouth. 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. Most importantly, Dippin’ Dots are made from fresh dairy ingredients flavored with a variety of fun, fruity, enticing and even exotic flavors. Those ingredients are 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. www.dippindots.com

Dippin’ Dots are made at the company’s Administrative, Sales, Franchising, and production headquarters in Paducah, Kentucky.
