Sweet News, Kids-at-Heart: You Can Get Dippin' Dots Ice Cream Delivered
Time to treat your inner child!
(SPOT.ph) Remember Dippin' Dots? Yup, we're talking about the one-of-a-kind ice cream snack that comes not as scoops or bars, but as tiny "dots" created by flash-freezing ice cream mix in liquid nitrogen. You likely grew up getting—or begging your parents to buy you—a cup every time you went to the mall, and if you'd like to relive those memories without stepping out of the house, you're in luck. You can get Dippin' Dots ice cream delivered through online specialty grocery Gourmet Direct!
Gourmet Direct offers the Dippin' Dots as gift packs (P1,200) that consist of five ready-to-eat prepacks (three ounces each)—choose between the Banana Split, Cotton Candy, and Cookie Dough flavors, and yup, you can mix and match! They're packed in a reusable styrofoam container with a block of dry ice that's good for four hours upon dispatch, as well as gloves for handling the dry ice (note that dry ice can cause severe burns when touched directly). Each gift pack also includes five wooden spoons.
At the moment, Gourmet Direct is able to deliver the ice cream to Taguig, Makati, Mandaluyong, San Juan, Parañaque, Muntinlupa, Quezon City, and Pasig—but if your area isn't listed, you can send them a text at 0917-109-1205 and they'll check if they can deliver to you.
Gourmet Direct also offers other ingredients and ready-to-eat food that you can get delivered. You can get freshly-baked Butter Croissants (P290/four pieces) from Bakehouse Shangri-La for an indulgent breakfast, or get Bonsoy Soy Milk (P305/one liter) for your coffee.
They also offer frozen steaks like the Australian Wagyu Ribeye Steak (P1,650/320 grams) from Raging Bull Chophouse, meal kits like the Laksarap Sous Vide Meal (P490) from Shangri-La at the Fort, and snacks like the Torres Black Truffle Chips (P250).
And if you're still hungry for ice cream, just some of our favorite ice-cream spots in Manila are Carmen's Best and Farmacy. They deliver, too!
