Spin And Dip

B. Smith Lazy Susan with Serving Bowls Set

Everybody loves dip; not everybody loves everything that goes with it. Carrots and cauliflower pieces are often passed by for a pretzel stick or some kind of chip. In the end, salty and starchy wins over healthy and natural. However all that reaching over the veggies is sure to cause some sort of guilt trip. Better to just spin them out of the way altogether.

The B. Smith Lazy Susan with Serving Bowls Set features a revolving base allowing for the best snacks to always be within reach. The four porcelain serving bowls each hold 11-ounces, while the top large bowl hold 21-ounces. The bowls are all microwave, oven and dishwasher safe so clean up and prep is a breeze. A small tea light in the center helps to keep the dip warm, no matter how many broccoli florets get passed by.

Go Ahead: Double Dip That Chip

The Ooma Bowl

The dreaded double dip: nobody likes it except the dip-ee. But perhaps blame should not only fall upon the offending dipper, but also on the host. People will double dip: it is a fact of life. While there is no getting around human behavior, there is a solution to this understandably important problem.

The Ooma Bowl designed by Thomas Both gives hors d’oeuvre-lovin’ partygoers a chance to double dip to their heart’s content. The two-bowl design of the 16-ounce capacity (in total) dish is perfect for any number of combinations: chips and salsa, beans and rice, veggies and dip. A little this and a little that, and it doesn’t matter in which order–and all without any of that icky unintentional sharing.

Can’t Talk. Eating. Go Football.

Somebody actually bothered to invent the Wild Fling Popcorn Basketball Bowl

Wild Fling Popcorn Basketball Bowl

The Wild Fling Popcorn Basketball Bowl may just be the most ridiculous sports-watching accessory since the beer helmet. Not surprisingly, the two hunks of plastic complement each other; drink with one, eat snacks with the other.

Dust off your old beer helmet (because every closet has one, right?) and get up to date with this snack bowl. When the beer helmet runs dry, enjoy the convenience offered by the integrated beverage holder. You’ll find it right next to the remote control. If your beer helmet is in the shop, no worries, because when the popcorn is all gone and the game is over, the bowl doubles (triples?) as a stylish helmet. Remember, it’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you watch the game.
