Dips

Just want peoples opinions on what they feel are 'the best' dips, what brands do you currently opt for and why, what do dips say to you?

It would help massively to find out, thank you :)

Chris.

First, welcome to DC.

Is this for a school project? Are you doing research for a paper?

I make my own most of the time.

They say party or get together.

I mostly make my own or in a pinch I buy fresh dips at my supermarket.

This is the only dip I ever buy that is not fresh....

I also make dip using a packet of Lipton's Recipe Secrets Vegetable and a pint of sour cream.

Dips say to me that Aunt Bea did not make much of an effort!

I also have a cheat dip that I make with mayo, ketchup, chutney and a dash of Worcestershire Sauce.

Gotta say, this is not much of an effort for a university project. Try to come up with a real survey and you'll get better results.

Brands? I make my own. The last time I bought ready-made dip was probably in... well, college.

I disagree. Dips play a good part at a Party. They either help get the party started or may be all there is to eat at a party. It's easier and more polite to dig into some dip and a nibble than to dive right into a larger dish, even though you know everyone can't wait . Either way dips are good.

I make Guacamole. or sour cream based dips or bean dip.

I buy Jarred Salsa and hummus. I also make these as homemade sometimes too, esp salsa fresca.
