Shabbos shopping for me is a relatively easy chore because of the ‘regular, standard’ food and drinks we have on our weekly shabbos table. Perhaps for you as well. The one aisle, however, that I have trouble with picking out my choicest of choice, no doubt is the dip section of my local supermarket. It is in that area of the store where I stand there, glazed-eyed, and befuddled. Sometimes I’m in the comforting confused company of other lost husbands, overwhelmed by the myriads of different flavored dips. Remember when shabbos dips were so simple: Chrain, mayonnaise, or chrayonnaise?
So, I turn to you, well-meaning brother and sister members of the coffee room, for your connoisseur expertise and help. What are your favorite flavored dips (and please include the specific company name as well) that you think I should buy this week?May 26, 2021 3:06 pm at 3:06 pm #1977674n0mesorahParticipant

ujm – I am sooo with you on that one 🙂
coffee addict – hey, ol’ friend! Believe it or not, i never tried it, not in potato chips nor dips. That flavor just doesn’t speak to me….is it really good?May 26, 2021 5:09 pm at 5:09 pm #1977740MosheFromMidwoodParticipant
My favorite is homemade onion dip, which is really simple to make. But if you insist on buying, I love babaganoush and matbouchaMay 26, 2021 6:35 pm at 6:35 pm #1977764hujuParticipant
Dip da dip da dip da dip. Very popular in the 1950’s, it was every everywhere, but not any more. It went especially well with bang shanga lang and bomp ba bomp ba bomp.May 26, 2021 6:36 pm at 6:36 pm #1977772lowerourtuition11210Participant
chumous, techina, matbucha. my family likes olive dip and tomato dip.May 26, 2021 7:17 pm at 7:17 pm #1977788☕️coffee addictParticipant
“Is it really good?”
I tastes like pickles 😊May 26, 2021 9:01 pm at 9:01 pm #1977812n0mesorahParticipant
Not really. It just looks good in a glass shaker.May 26, 2021 10:24 pm at 10:24 pm #1977840justlookinginParticipant
It’s very simple. All those dozens of different foods are just mayonnaise with different flavorings. So it’s just a matter of deciding how you want your mayo flavored. Dill, mushroom, olive,etc…. Basically all the same thing.
Shabbos dips are the biggest scam. Charging $4-$5 for a little tub of flavored mayo which cost 35 cents to produce is ridiculous.May 26, 2021 10:28 pm at 10:28 pm #1977857BaltimoreMavenParticipant
Schwartz Babaganoush is delicious and not at all smokey. We love it especially my kids.

Learn to make your own dips. They will be much more tasty than the store bought products. Take the extra money and give it to a yasom instead of supporting a rich man’s summer adventureMay 27, 2021 7:42 am at 7:42 am #1977898ShtarkButRelatableParticipant

So my wife made delicious chummus, and also roasted garlics. This week, we went for hot red pepper dip, matbucha, and a pickle dip, I’ll let you know how it goes. That was a pretty quick outing today with the shabbos shopping so thanks all for your suggestionsMay 30, 2021 10:58 pm at 10:58 pm #1978969dovrosenbaumParticipant
We like olive dip, pickle dip, and fried onion dip or shallot dip. Matbucha, hummus, and chrayonnaise, too. That, with gefile fish and sometimes also teriyaki salmon, is the fish courseJune 14, 2021 12:45 pm at 12:45 pm #1983019zfriendlyParticipant
I have often when this “dip thing” began. Coming of age in the 60’s the only dip was fish in “chrain” Now dips are a business. I believe it started about 30 years ago when girls returned after spending their gap year in Israel where dips were introduced by Israeli families on shabbosJune 29, 2021 6:31 am at 6:31 am #1986951ari-freeParticipant
Schug, harissa and olive oil with zaatarJune 29, 2021 9:27 pm at 9:27 pm #1987234eishis chayilParticipant

I like dill dip.July 5, 2021 12:00 am at 12:00 am #1988526GadolhadorahParticipant
For those who need to be careful about cholesterol, a good quality virgin olive oil blended with your favorite roasted vegetable and fresh herb mixes (our favorite is roasted heirloom tomatoes, leeks and eggplant with some zatar, shug and lemon juice). Roasting the veggies in an oven or grill concentrates the flavors and highlights the natural sugars. Skip the mayo since the whipped olive oil provides much of the same texture. B’taavon
