If the cruel temptations of the Play-Doh Fun Factory taught the world anything, it's that mouthwatering creations are more gratifying when they're actually edible. Swoop spoon-first into a scoop of icy eats with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of ice cream at Dippin’ Dots. This Groupon is valid at The Fashion Valley Center location.

Dippin’ Dots' patrons satisfy sweet, icy cravings with a plethora of unique tastes packed into ice cream and other chilly treats. Cryogenic encapsulation, a flash-freezing process, results in small beads of ice cream prepared the way every food should be: freeze-blasted into hundreds of tiny pellets that can easily be smuggled in a sock. Gobble up flavors such as banana split, rainbow ice, cookies and cream, and cotton candy in small ($3.75), medium ($5), and large ($7) sizes. Flavored ice and yogurt options are also available, and patrons can opt to try a variety of treats like the Dot Float, a choice of soda topped with beads of ice cream.

Dippin' Dots has become vastly popular since its invention in the retro-future year of 1988, delighting dessert fans with a simple formula of oddball ice cream. Futuristic desserts free tongues to savor treats that stupefy traditionalist children instead of trying to lick frozen scoops floating in zero gravity.

Dippin' Dots

A science lab calls to mind test tubes, bubbling flasks of chemicals, maniacally laughing men in white coats—but rarely ice cream. But that's exactly where Curt Jones, chairman and founder of Dippin' Dots, came upon the inspiration for the tiny flash-frozen beads of ice cream. A microbiologist, Jones spearheaded the flash-freezing process of cryogenic encapsulation, a method capable of trapping flavor and freshness.

Beginning as a retail shop in Lexington, Kentucky, the ice cream quickly began to quell the tantrums of Fortune 500 CEOs all over the country. Having won numerous awards since he created a new way to enjoy an old treat, Jones stays true to Dippin' Dots’ roots, making the ice cream at the company headquarters in Paducah, Kentucky. New additions to the Dippin' Dots family include Dots ‘n Cream, a treat similar to traditional ice cream.
