When it comes to eating veggies, many people prefer theirs with a dip of some sort. Historically, many veggie dips have been sour cream based, but in recent years hummus has also emerged as a preferred option when it comes to snacking on veggies like carrots, celery, and other healthy choices. We believe there is room for innovation when it comes to veggie dips, and we're looking for your ideas to help us uncover the next trend in veggie snacking!
