    Tried 'em once, didn't find them too good but did find them overpriced. Never went back. (shrug)

    Surprised by that, they always seem to be a popular treat at the park and mall with people always carrying them. I don't know their supply chain but maybe they tried to grow too fast.

    Not too surprised to hear the news.

    The product is hard to turn a big profit on because of the need for specialized transport and storage due to the extreme cold needed to keep the product frozen.

    It has to be kept between -30 and -40 degrees fahrenheit to keep it from melting

    The product itself is also expensive, even when buying direct from the manufacturer, which is why it costs so much when it is sold on the secondary market

    Dippin Dots are people.
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.
