Oasis is 100% Costa Rican family owned business.

“We found the brand on a trip with our chilren, finding it fun to eat the unique frozen treat. From that the idea was born to bring this innovative product to the country,” Monica Rojas Callega, general manager of Oasis Group, told La Republica.

Dippin’ Dots is an ice cream snack, invented by Southern Illinois University Carbondale graduate Curt Jones in 1987. The confection is created by flash freezing ice cream mix in liquid nitrogen.

Besides the store in Escazú, according to their website, Dippin’ Dots can be found in Automercado stores in Heredia, Alajulea, Guachipelin, Santa Ana (Lindora), Tres Rios, Plaza del Sol, Multiplaza (Escazú), Plaza Mayor and Moravia.
