Who invented Dippin' Dots?

IT'S almost summer and nice ice cream is what you'll need as the temperature starts to rise.

Speaking of ice cream, Dippin' Dots would sure sound great as a cold dessert, wonder if the inventor of them was thinking the same thing.

Who invented Dippin' Dots?

Curt Jones was the one who created Dippin' Dots.

In 1988, the microbiologist introduced the world to beaded ice cream.

The idea came when he was working in a Kentucky lab in which he used liquid nitrogen to flash-freeze animal feed.

A thought crossed his mind that whether he could create droplets of ice cream if he passed ice cream through the liquid nitrogen.

And that is how Dippin Dots were invented.

The ice cream brand went on to make huge success as it started being sold at theme and amusement parks.

In 1995, Dippin' Dots hit the international market and started being sold in Japan too.

Now, you can find over 100 Dippin' Dots locations and they are also sold across several amusement and team parks, stadiums, arenas and movie theatres.
