DROP THE CHIP! Or veggie, or whatever you're about to dip in that dip. While you may believe the yummy bowl of sauce is full of deliciousness you may be surprised to find out it's also full of... HERPES!
Double dippers be on notice, science is shutting you down. We all know that public double dipping is gross, but now it’s been proven you can literally make someone sick by doing it. Microbiologists did a test on three types of party dips: sour cream, hummus, and the Greek taramasalata.
The test was done for “Food Unwrapped” on Britain’s Channel 4. A presenter doubled dipped into each of them and the results were a bit shocking. It turns out even a hint of saliva contains thousands of types of bacteria and it goes right into the dip. Then, depending on the dip, it multiplies up to 100 times. In that bacteria is herpes, norovirus, or maybe countless other things that can make you sick!
By the way - the runnier the dip, the faster the bacteria multiplies
So the next time you go to a party, or maybe even eat at a restaurant ask yourself something, "Does that dip have herpes?"
