Dippin' Dots: A Futuristic Dessert Throwback

Futuristic yet retro - my friend saw that description of Dippin' Dots ice cream somewhere online. Dippin' dots has also been in the country for quite some time. I remember having one when I was a kid. It's not the usual ice cream that you scoop out of a tub. Rather, you scoop out tiny colorful ice cream dots. They also had this type of ice cream in Universal Studios Singapore, in their Sci-fi Cafe, when we visited last 2012.

Wanting that futuristic-retro-ice-cream, I bought a cup at their SM Mall of Asia kiosk.

There were 4 flavors on display: Peppermint, Candy Cane, Strawberry and Vanilla. You could order a maximum of 3 flavors in a cup. They only had one serving size. I ordered Peppermint, Candy Cane and Strawberry.

Peppermint and Candy cane looks alike with the green, red, and white colored dots. They also both have a minty taste. The difference is that the peppermint had brown dots which are probably chocolate flavored. The white-light pink on the left side is the strawberry.

You could choose to let the dots melt in your mouth or just munch on them.

Peppermint is what I liked best. The novelty of eating ice cream in dots form is fun too. I just hope there were more available flavors or even just a variety with what was available since candy cane and peppermint tasted almost alike.
