I dip, you dip, we dip

Don’t look now, but the national day of eating is upon us. Nope, not Thanksgiving. TheĀ other day that we devote to eating – Super Bowl Sunday.

Quintessential to watch parties everywhere is the institution that is the dip. Hoagies, popcorn, pigs in blankets – they all have their moments. But each groaning Super Bowl Spread (we’ll get back to you when we trademark that, NFL), usually has one star. And that’s usually a standout, homemade dip. We still dream about a cheesecake dip that capped off last year’s insane, down-to-the-wire game. Well, we dream about that and Malcom Butler’s interception.

So whether you’re pulling for the Broncos, the Panthers, or nursing your sorrows (Patriots fans, that’s for you), we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite dips for Super Bowl Sunday. Check ’em out below – or on our holidays Pinterest board, where we’re pulling together a lot of cool ideas for a day of football. And Beyonce.
