Try Our Favorite Dips For National Chip & Dip Day

Even though today isn’t a national holiday, National Chip & Dip day is something that can be enjoyed by all lovers of food. There is no greater combination than a crispy chip and a rich, flavorful dip. Chips and dips may be the most popular party appetizers to bring, primarily because both items are easy to obtain and require little effort, but also because they are both amazingly addicting in the best way.

Can you imagine a world without dips, or worse, a world without chips? There are so many different varieties of both chips and dips. There are potato, tortilla, corn, pretzel, and popcorn chips, among many other varieties. And new dips seem to pop up every other day! You can enjoy guacamole, salsa, hummus, almond butter, cashew butter, French onion dip, pesto, spinach artichoke dip, and many other tasty variations.

Dips have actually been around for hundreds of years, what with hummus dating back to the 13th century. Hummus, however, did not appear in America until after the Second World War. The potato chip, on the other hand, is a more recent food item that was invented in 1853. The harmonious marriage of chips and dips became popular in the 1950s.

Chip Fact: It takes 10,000 pounds of potatoes to make 3,500 pounds of potato chips.
