When and how did you get started making dips?
The idea for making dips came to me Superbowl Sunday 2009. I got invited to a lot of demonstrations and parties and I was always asked to bring dip and veggies or chips, etc. Back then I was using Tastefully Simple for everything but I thought that I could probably make my own. I asked my husband what he thought and he told me to go for it. Fortunately, I inherited my knack of cooking with out a recipe from my grandmother and this came pretty easy for me. All of these recipes (besides the ones that are my gram’s) are my very own creations and I make every dip by hand one at a time in its own packet. This is the only way I can be sure each and every dip gets my exact recipe (instead of making in bulk). I also try to remind people that you do NOT have to make dip with the packets and can use them simply as seasonings. I do have a recipe section on my website and am always looking for ideas.
Do you have an actual retail location or do you sell at shows? Do you have any upcoming shows?
I do not have a retail location and sell mainly on my website. I try to sell at a few shows a year, when I can, and mostly around Christmas. I do not have any shows coming up as it’s tax season and I get very busy this time of year.
What are your best-selling items?
My best-selling item is probably the Taco Dip. It’s just very universal. A lot of customers love it just as dip, but I also use it for my tacos and chili. In fact, my husband pouts if I use a store-bought taco mix because he likes mine better. Maybe he’s biased, I don’t know 😉
Which one is your personal favorite?
My personal favorite is Chocolate Malt. I originally came up with this one for my dad, who loves malt but I ended up like it a lot. I don’t even dip anything in it, I just eat it with a spoon!
What are you currently working on?
I don’t make anything else right now but I do have plans to make bread and soup mixes in the future. I do have flavors of the month which usually aren’t any of my normal dip flavors.
Mmmmm…after checking out her website I definitely want to try the Warm Cinnamon Sugar Mix. Sounds yummy! What mix would you like to try?
