They are indeed US based. They're basically tiny ice cream pellets super cooled with liquid nitrogen, and resemble broken up styrofoam.

Yep - and you don't generally find them at grocery stores; they're almost exclusively sold from a cart vendor at theme parks, sporting events, carnivals, etc.

I had some at the zoo last month. They were pretty good! I just don't like that they're very pricey for ice cream.

There is a Dippin' Dots parlor shop in NYC, on 23rd Street across from Madison Square Park. It's quite popular too.

Used to drive by their manufacturing facility in my home town without ever knowing what it was. But there was a Dip n Dots store in the small convention center down the road from it.

I like them on really hot days when regular ice cream melts too fast.

I'm a bit of an ice cream snob. it's supposed to be smooth and creamy. Not little freezer burnt beads.
