NASHVILLE, U.S. — Remember Dippin’ Dots Ice Cream? The cryogenically frozen beads of ice cream FUN, invented by microbiologist Curt Jones, not only touched hearts and created memories, but transformed the way we consume ice cream in malls, fairs, festivals, and major theme and water parks around the U.S–and eventually in 14 countries.
What you may not remember is that Dippin’ Dots® was a family-owned and operated business for 30 years. The family has now taken the technology, invented by Curt, and has created a new fun and exciting company!
40 Below takes classic food and beverage items and elevates them into unique, novelty snacks using cryogenic technology. Using their custom made equipment combined with a freezing methodology based on liquid nitrogen at -320°F, they are able to capture all of the fun and flavor in your favorite foods and beverages while maintaining the highest quality and freshness.

They get down to the science of it all.
