Ohio Zoos Ranked by Number of Dippin’ Dots Locations

Dippin’ Dots

Every zoo has animals. Boring! Not every zoo has Dippin’ Dots, though. Dippin’ Dots are fun. They’re cold. They’re round. They’re airy. Here is their official description: “In 1988, microbiologist Curt Jones used his knowledge of cryogenic technology to invent Dippin’ Dots — an unconventional ice cream treat that’s remarkably fresh and flavorful, introducing the world to beaded ice cream.” Zoos are often the places where people are first introduced to the delightful treat. That is why I am ranking the animal parks in Ohio by their number of Dippin’ Dots locations. And I don’t even work for them!

Now that you know the official Ohio zoo rankings, you can sleep peacefully. Happy Dippin’.

(Once again, this is not a sponsored post. However, if Dippin’ Dots does reach out to me, I will be more than happy to sell out).
