NO double dipping. I flip with my family but I never ever put the same side I bit back in the dip, not even with myself.
I will with people who I don't think care, but only with an un-bitten part of the chip.
I will with family, heck i will stick my whole finger in the dip.
Yuck just with family and bf that's it. Not even friends for me. I don't know I read some stuff you can catch from double dipping or just germs in general.
What's a little saliva amongst friends, right?
"flip the chip"
No, I don't double-dip... it's pretty gross :(
We're probably sharing the germs anyways, so I tend to go with the flow. If I'm close to the people I'm with and we're double-dipping, so be it! C'est la vie!
I will totally do it around my family. With other people though, I really try not to. I'll either 1) put the sauce directly onto my plate or 2) break and dip If those are not options, then I just eat the rest of whatever it is without dipping again.
I usually break my chip into 2-3 pieces and then I can get a good dip to chip ratio, without double dipping.
If it's just me eating by myself or just me and my husband having some chips and dip, then yes, of course. If I'm at a party or with other people, NO. That's pretty gross.
With my family, or my boyfriend. Other than that, no. I'll break the chip/ veggies/ whatever into smaller pieces so I can get more dip, though.
Only on the un eaten side, if at all!
Only BY MYSELF. Eww, if my boyfriend or one of the kids does it I quit eating whatever it is
i'm actually one of those 'break the chip and dip' types - so i don't usually have the opportunity to double dip
Sugarbecky is correct...they did a study and there wasn't any more bacteria than if it (double dipping) hadn't been done. However the author of the study admitted she still didn't like it as it was as if someone spit on you while speaking. Not going to hurt you but still kind of disgusting.
Studies have shown that, germ-wise, it's not that much worse with double dipping, but its still kind of gross. I only double dip with family and friends, because we're probably sharing air germs anyway.
I'll use the un-nibbled side of the chip/bread/carrot/whatever. But that's probably gross, huh?
Double-dipping is gross!! I don't care if I'm in the company of family or friends, I wouldn't expect them to do it either.
I too will do the double-dip only with close family and friends and then just use a side of the chip that did not previously use in the previous dip.
just with family/friends and then i use the sie of the chip i didn't use before
I try not to double dip, but if I do it's usually around family.
Only with my boyfriend will I double dip... with family I might sometimes "kayak dip". Otherwise I put up and eat the rest of whatever it is dry. :P
I usually avoid it, unless I'm with my boyfriend. It's habit for me to just use the parts of the dipper that I haven't had in my mouth. Or, depending on what I'm dipping, I'll tear a bit off and dip that.
also depends how yummy the dip is!
