(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 SplitCotton 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.
