Go to the freezer section of your grocery store and you'll find a million flavors of Ben & Jerry's (except grape or Sugar Plum) and Häagen-Dazs. But you'll never find the futuristic ice cream Dippin' Dots in the freezers, a fact uncovered by a sleuthy Reddit user.
According to Dippin' Dots, most grocery stores (and the freezer you have in your kitchen) don't get cold enough to hold the unique ice cream's shape. Your freezer is probably around 0 degrees Fahrenheit, but the Dots are flash frozen (as in, frozen super quickly) and stored at negative 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Fun fact for you nerds out there, that's the same temperature as negative 40 Celsius!
Now, you could still eat the Dots at 0 degrees, but they would all stick together. Another Redditor who sold the ice cream at a tourist spot said that if a freezer lost power, the Dots would have to be thrown away within 30 minutes! By then those Dots would cease to be, you know, actual Dots, and that isn't a dessert anyone should want to be a part of.
