Dippin' Dots: not-your-ordinary-ice cream

Jun 25, 2013

I remember, when I was about  4 or 5 years old, when my mom would usually take me to SM Bacoor, I would drag her to this ice cream stall that I really love. Could you guess what ice cream stall it is?

Well, some may not be aware of Dippin' Dots. Most of it's branches now are located only in Metro Manila.

Large Cup = you can have four different flavors

Banana Split, Choco Mint, Bubble Gum and Cotton Candy
Dippin' Dots are tiny beads of ice cream, yogurt, sherbet and flavored ice. Microbiologist Curt Jones used his background in cryogenic technology to invent Dippin' Dots in 1988. His invention is now considered the unique, futuristic and fun way to eat ice cream!

As far as I can remember, the Dippin' Dots before do not melt right away because of their high-tech cryogenic freezing process. However, now, it's melts easily and you have to eat it right away.

My favorite flavors are Banana Split, Bubble Gum, Mint Chocolate and  Cotton Candy. There are may more flavors but most of the time, the flavors I mentioned are the ones usually available in their stores.
        According to Munch Punch website, the only locations Dippin' Dots is available in:
  • Shangri-la Plaza Mall Food Stall
  • Alabang Town Center Food Stall
  • Greenhills Shopping Center Food Stall
  • Glorietta 3 Food Stall
  • Market! Market! Food Stall
  • SM Mall of Asia Food Stall
The last time I checked the prices of the cups range from 150 - 200 pesos. The large cup which costs not more than 200 pesos could have four flavors.

Since there is no branch near me, I make it to a point that if I do come across a stall of Dippin' Dots, I will buy one large cup.

The colorful dots and the deliciousness of the ice cream makes it my favorite ice cream of all time. What's yours?
