Dippin’ Dots, the Paducah, Kentucky, USA-based producer of flash-frozen beaded ice cream, has teamed up with Incredible Eats, which makes and markets eco-friendly edible spoons.
“Providing an edible spoon with our ice cream is a win-win for everyone. It elevates our products, reduces waste and aligns with the message many of our partners are trying to convey,” said Bryan Carney, director of national accounts at Dippin’ Dots.
The spoons come in vanilla and chocolate flavors, and can be paired with any flavor of ice cream. Dippin’ Dots has shipped the utensils to all locations to begin sampling and they will soon start to roll out across the country.
“After visiting an ice cream shop with my kids and throwing away our cups and spoons in the trash, I got to thinking about a way we could reduce single use plastic and replace it with something environmentally friendly. That’s when edible cutlery came to mind,” said Dinesh Tadepalli, co-founder of Morrisville, North Carolina-based Incredible Eats. “We are so excited that Dippin’ Dots has jumped on board to help us save the planet one spoon at time.”
Incredible Eats made its debut on Shark Tank business reality television show in 202 and received four different offers from the investor panel. Since the airing, Incredible Eats has grown in popularity and is now adding edible straws, bowls and plates to its product lineup.
