These are interesting. I never even noticed the names of peppridge farm cookies being the same as European cities.

Dippin' Dots was invented in Paducah, Kentucky by a guy who wanted creamier ice cream and was an inventor, so he messed around with the size and the shape of the ice cream until he managed to use liquid nitrogen to cryogenically freeze it before ice crystals could form.

There is more to it. It was in a newspaper article in the Chicago Tribune a couple weeks ago. My friend's mom picked it up at a rest area while we were driving home from Kentucky. We'd passed through Paducah an hour before... If only I had known then, I would have gone in search of a dippin' dots.
