sometimes it is better to NOT know

“Estimated number of bacteria transferred to a dip via ‘double-dipping,’ according to a Clemson University study: 2,750”

Try not to think about this statistic in the midst of your next social gathering.

I wonder if the number goes up if children are involved?

    It only goes up if they’ve used part of the corn chip to pick their nose before they re-dip. And, yeah, it’s littering if they decide to throw the chip out the window instead of eating it.

    Of course it does and then all the adults get sick and the children go right on going 🙂

    OHhhhhhhh Herman…I heard all about this on NPR there was a great interview etc and talk all about double dipping–their guests being those who did the scientific study. It was gross and scary. Ignorance truly is bliss! If I can remember right some dips bred more bacteria than others. A dip more safe than another?
