"Just take one dip and end it"

Okay, I've got a confession here... I'm a major double dipper. So much so that I don't even THINK about it. But a while ago my dear friend Cindy blogged about the grossness of double dippers and I realized, embarrassed, that I have done it at her house.

I want everyone to fess up here and now- who's a double dipper out there and who's not?
This way if I'm ever at a party at your house I'll know next time if I can or can't proceed with my bad habit.

Check out this awesome Seinfeld clip (gosh, I love that show)...

Question: Everyone double dips at home, right? Or is that also considered bad?

I don't double dip in social settings. (Liv, how could you?) - My instinct is to turn the chip around to dip from the other side, since no germs would be passed. But I always stop because I worry the people around me didn't see me turn my chip around. These are really dumb things to worry about, I know.

I agree with stephanie. I double dip at home or just w/ family, but I try to avoid it in more social settings

You know me, I'm a big time double dipper as long as I know everyone at the party. If I trust your germs I figure you trust mine. In scenarios where I don't know everyone I never double dip - wouldn't want anyone judging me for it. If I know someone doesn't like double dipping (Cindy) and I'm eating with them I will refrain since I would rather enjoy food with them than double dip myself.

Guilty of double dipping, but if I think about it I try to turn the chip around for the sake of others. I don't care if other people double dip before I take a bite, unless they are sick and drooling.

Long story short, I double dip at home, but manage to keep it under wraps in anything else.

I definitely think double dipping is completely acceptable...otherwise how can you fully enjoy the chip???

Besides, we're talking minimal germs here and they probably just build your immunity, which I consider a good thing!

Olivia Carter said...

I like Erin's theory- building up immunity. That's what I'll say next time- "I'm just making ya'll tougher"

Ashley said...

I only double dip at home. I've tried the strategy of turning the chip or veggie around but I have the same fear that someone nearby didn't see me turn it around.

I think I've been conscious of trying not to double dip in social settings ever since Sis Blackmer's house.... but of course I do it whenever I can. :)

Double-dipping is the rule in our house. Heather, while you can double-dip at our home anytime, please keep your toothbrush to yourself! *grin*

Russ said...

Forget about the chip, I just stick my finger in the dip and then lick it off! Just kidding! I'm a big time double dipper, but I try to be careful in social settings. Olivia, you can dd with me any day! Em

All. the. time. in public or at home.

Debbie said...

I'd say 98% of the time I double dip (all the time at home or with family and most of the time with friends). If I notice negative social cues I'll stop with the double dipping and just try to enjoy the one half of my food that is dipped. Lol.

tara said...

Liv, feel free to double dip around me any old time!

Meredith said...

double dip---absolutely---

now---how about chugging from the milk container?

brooke said...

guilty double-dipper... but not with people i'm not close to

Cindy said...

I know I blogged about double dipping, but I have to say... I occasionally do myself. And... if you came to my house, I would not be offended if you double dipped. In fact, I would just be happy you were there! :) Miss you!
