Dill Pickle Dip


to dip or not to dip?
the eternal question that leaves chip lovers divided.


i grew up in a family of 'dippers' so i guess you could say i come by it honestly.
growing up i can vividly remember my mom's love for old dutch ripple potato chips.  back then they came in a box, split into two bags & opened down the middle.  and she loved them. and loved them even more when she had a tub of french onion dip on the side.  she was always more of a scooper, than a dipper so chances are we'd run out of dip before chips, but this is why i love her.  dad on the other hand wasn't impressed with the chip to dip ratio, but that didn't bother her one bit.

today i'm leaving behind the french onion kind (i'm saving that one for my mama) in favour of dill pickle because if ever there was a fan of pickles, it is the host of tonights NYE party, the lovely JA.



why would you have a dill pickle chip when you could dip instead.
