'Seinfeld' Was Right: Don't Double-Dip
Ali Schumacher, Mind the Science Gap
With the holiday season kicking off, the time has come to begin penciling in the holiday parties, potlucks, and get-togethers. Time to pull the ugly holiday sweater out of storage and start to perfect your favorite party recipes. However, while mingling through the festive atmosphere enjoying the holiday snacks, it may be beneficial to pay close attention to certain party etiquette. Research suggests that “double-dipping” your snacks (i.e. chips in salsa, crackers in cheese dip) is, in fact, more than just a social faux paus. It is indeed a great way to spread some germs this holiday season.
