What would an ice cream inspired by a dinosaur taste like?
A local ice cream parlor asked that exact question this summer to develop Dippy Dino Rocks—a new flavor inspired by our museum’s most famous dinosaur!
Social media users chose a mint based ice cream with chocolate chip cookie dough, chocolate chips, and fudge ripple to honor Diplodocus carnegii, a giant sauropod discovered by Carnegie scientists. Most people know “Dippy” by the statue of him outside the museum, which sports seasonal scarves throughout the year.
One user on social media said she voted for mint, because she envisions dinosaurs being green!
Dippy Dino Rocks ice cream is now available at Klavon’s Ice Cream Parlor in the Strip District.
