Some people think that it has a bitter taste, but i get one by a company called St.Helens farm and its very creamy. But i've been on it for over a year now and cant really remember what cows milk tastes like. Downside is, its much more expensive than normal Cows milk Sad

Oh goodness, I don't think I've ever had anything like it when I've visited the UK, though I'm sure you have something like it.

A dip is something into which, as the same suggests, one dips other food items. Vegetables are the most common choice, but depending upon the dip, bread sticks, pizza crusts, etc. are quite suitable. There are lots of different kinds. Ranch tastes a bit like a creamier version of blue cheese, perhaps with a hint of garlic and/or sour cream, depending upon the brand.

I don't know what UK pizza places are like, but here it's not uncommon to have a choice of dips (sauces, maybe you'd call them?) that come with delivery pizza such as Pizza Hut and Papa Johns.

We buy dips out of the supermarket maybe what you are talking about Wombat, we dip Pringle crisps in them and also bread sticks, you get sour cream and chive, cheddar cheese dip, garlic dip, sweet chili, and many more, cant think at the moment. But yeah they are tastey Mmmm.... Laughing

Wombat, i know the type of thing you meant, but is ranch dip like a bbq sauce or a salsa or is it a brandname ? The garlic and chive dip that comes with our Dominos pizza is usually chucked in the bin by my garlic hating (possible vampire) wife Smile

Sparkle, you can't call pringles crisps anymore i'm affraid. They just won a court case describing them as a snack, something to do with them not having enough potato in them or some such nonsence, allowing them to be VAT exempt, i bet they dont drop their prices to reflect this like. I'll still call it a crisp though (chip in America) cause i'm a rebel Smile

Can't call them crisps, Laughing.

"Dip" is one of those broad terms that can cover all sorts of items. There are marinara dips (tomato based), cheese dips (or "cheese food product" dips), teh garlic and chive dip your describe - all would qualify.

Interestingly, a garlic and chive dip would be unusual in the US unless it was a dip you made for yourself. With apologies to your missis, it sounds quite tasty to me!

Ranch dip is white, with very small bits of vegetables, sometimes small bits of garlic and is very creamy in texture. I use it for veggies, but have also been known to use it on sandwiches wehn there's no mayonaise handy.
