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.

Including national, local, franchising, and distribution locations we have over 8,900 points of presence in the US.

With those qualities established, Dippin’ Dots' popularity skyrocketed, and the ice cream now has a home in thousands of locations worldwide, including theme parks, fairs & festivals and franchised store locations. Dippin’ Dots are sold in 9 countries, across 5 continents and are pure frozen deliciousness, delivered one yummy spoonful at a time!
