Dippin' Dots is ice cream like you have never had before.
Rather then a scoop of ice cream you get tons of little dots of ice cream.
Most ice cream is made by pouring the ice cream mixture into a machine that will stir the ice cream around and around. The mixture freezes as it touches the sides of the machine that is very cold. Then it get stirred more and a scraper pulls off the frozen area and then more of the mixture freezes. This goes on and on until all the mixture has been frozen.
You get a nice creamy frozen mixture...ice cream as we all know it.
Well with Dippin' Dots the mixture gets poured into a container that is so cold it freezes each and every drop of the mixture as soon as it enters it. So your "ice cream" is not all mixed together. It's a bunch of tiny dots.
You can't get Dippin' Dots at the grocery store. They need to be kept frozen at a colder temperature then most grocery store freezers.
They can be found at some malls, amusement parks and are even popping up in some special vending machines.
Dippin' Dots come in many different flavors just like regular ice cream.
They do melt but much slower then normal ice cream. Though when you put them in your mouth they don't seem to be super cold like you would think they would be.
I like them. But regular ice cream just can't be beat. What do you think?
