Dippin’ Dots has enjoyed a 30-year head start in the freezin’ trade, mostly for turning ice cream into frozen pellets that melt on your tongue. Now the company has launched a start-up—Dippin’ Dots Cryogenics LLC—that would allow other companies to use its proprietary flash-freezing technology.

We know where your mind is going. That’s where our minds went too. No, they will not do that. Don’t even ask.


The start-up will be working with those in fields such as pharmaceutical and agricultural, where cryogenics technology could be applied. The process employs liquid nitrogen to flash freeze products.

But no, sicko, they will definitely not freeze dry that. Not even if it’s turned into delicious chocolate-flavored mini-spheres. Oh man, you’re just weird.
