Party Dip 101: Simple Ideas to Wow Your Guests!

So everyone’s getting together. Maybe to watch the game, maybe a birthday. Perhaps it’s just a nice night to catch up with friends. But regardless of the occasion, and no matter whether you’re a host or a guest, we all know how it feels to ponder what foodstuffs you want to contribute.

We’ve got a secret: make sure your appetizers are on point! As a host, you want to make sure your guests don’t get hangry as they mill around and shoot the breeze. And if you’re a guest who’s looking to bring an easy party dip, you want to bring something your host will appreciate. 

Of course, you could always bring a tasty organic hummus or fresh guacamole, but we have an idea that’s sure to get the party started on the right foot!

Easy Party Dip Made from Cashews & Almonds!

Roasted Red Pepper Cashew & Almond Nut Dip

Filler calories, unhealthy oils, chemical additives, synthetic preservatives… yuck! It’s no secret that most party dips are made of stuff you probably can’t pronounce and definitely don’t want in your body. The price of modern convenience is that you’ve got to check the ingredient and nutrient label before you walk out with just any shindig or holiday party dip.

Roasted Garlic Cashew & Almond Nut Dip

Thankfully, there’s a simple and delicious solution. You probably already know that party dips with the HOPE label set the standard for premium healthy ingredients, no synthetic additives, and amazing flavors. However, the HOPE flavor creators have gone a step further than our popular cold pressure processed, USDA Certified Organic hummus and guacamole: small-batch Cashew & Almond Dips!

Bursting with flavor, HOPE Cashew and Almond Party Dips are full of plant based protein and healthy fats from nuts—plus a healthy dose of vitamins and nutrients. Pretty awesome, huh? Very few easy cold or hot dip recipes can make that claim.
