Dippin' Dots opens tomorrow in Stoneridge Mall

National retailer known for tiny ice cream beads

by Jeb Bing

Dippin' Dots will open a Pleasanton store this weekend in the Stoneridge Shopping Center, offering a new variety of frozen treats with tiny beads of ice cream, yogurt, sherbet and flavored ice.

Microbiologist Curt Jones first introduced Dippin' Dots in 1988, using his background in cryogenic technology to produce the product.

Since then, the product has been sold at county fairs and some retail stores throughout the country, with Jones recently named by Ernst & Young as a "Entrepreneur of the Year" finalist. Dippin' Dots are manufactured in Paducah, Ky.

The Pleasanton Dippin' Dots franchise at Stoneridge Mall is owned by Ash Goyal, and is located inside Berry Delight on the lower level in the Nordstrom wing.

Jones will be at the grand-opening festivities, where customers will receive free Dippin' Dots from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Dippin' Dots come in a variety of flavors, including top sellers cookies 'n cream, Oreo, banana split and rainbow ice.
