23 March – Chip and Dip Day
It’s Chip and Dip Day! Chips and dip are the iconic party snack. Whether you prefer tortilla chips, potato chips or corn chips; there are dozens of dips to complement your snack of choice.
Humans have been dipping their food into sweet and savoury sauces for centuries. Some of the earliest dips were hummus and olive oil, which originated in the Mediterranean region and are still very popular today.
Salsas and dips made with sour cream became popular in the 1940s, and chips and dip became the go-to party dish because it was so simple to prepare.
