Dippin' Dots, Andy Ross, Flak magazine
If Dippin' Dots are the future of ice cream, then it is a bleak future indeed, says Andy Ross of Flak Magazine. Dippin' Dots -- ice cream shaped into tiny pellets at minus 40 degrees -- are painfully cold and utterly tasteless, leaving people to wonder why such a product exists. '(Dippin' Dots) will never attain the deliciousness of real ice cream,' Ross professes. But after a run-in with a Dippin' Dots employee, he realized the pellets were created for ease and cleanliness in serving, not for taste. 'The spittle hitting his fear-frozen face from my pronouncement of the word 'bastards' drew my eyes downward,' he recounts. 'His polo shirt clenched in my now white knuckles was a spotless sky blue...how had he kept his shirt so clean in the dirty world of ice cream sales?'
