Hi All,

  1. All of these dips sounds delicious. I think I will try the sesame dip soon. My family has recently fallen in love with sesame chicken so this would be a great one to try! I am just stopping by from Inspire Me Wednesday on Mamabzz.com. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Thanks for all the mix ideas! I’m trying to take healthier snacks to work and these mixes will make it a snap to make a quickie dip for my veggie sticks.

  3. thank you so much for all of these recipes! I was wondering if you have actually sold these at craft fairs. I have always been in love with dry dip mixes and now I know how to make them I want to start selling some at small craft fairs and farmers markets. Do you know if there are any guild lines I have to follow with the packaging or production to sell some on a small scale?

    • Hi Beth,
      No I have not sold these but I have bought them at fairs and usually after I have waited in a long line to get them. Last time I bought some they were 3 packs for $10. The packages I have previously bought only had a label with the name and what you were to mix them with. I don’t know even what my local laws are pertaining to selling food items so I can’t guide you. I would find I was always buying dip mixes and that started the quest for recipes. If you wanted to make and sell, I would definitely check the local laws. I have always found that any business related search I have always done well with starting with the SBA (Small Business Administration). Previously SCORE has also been helpful for any business questions I have had, you can search them and give them a call too. Good Luck, wish you the best. Let me know how it goes.

    • Yes sometimes it is near impossible to print the whole web page. What I do is cut and paste them into a word document, then print. Or you can use your snipping tool and cut them and again paste in a word document and print.
