The La Crosse Loggers are ready for another exciting season! We can already smell the popcorn and Logger dogs. I got to thinking about all of that and I remember last year having some ice cold yummy Dippin Dots. Just in case you have not had any yet here is a history of the tasty treat. Because the product requires storage at temperatures below −40 °F (−40 °C), it is not sold in grocery stores, which cannot provide such extreme cooling requirements (edit: it is sold in individual 3 ounces (85 g) packages in select grocery stores). Dippin’ Dots are sold in individual servings at franchised outlets like the La Crosse Loggers games. Dippin‘ Dots is an ice cream snack, invented by Southern Illinois University Carbondale graduate Curt Jones in 1988. The confection is created by flash freezing ice cream mix in liquid nitrogen. The marketing slogan is “Ice Cream of the Future”. The snack is made by Dippin’ Dots, Inc., headquartered in Paducah, Kentucky.
