Call me a serial dunker, well, I am. I like to dip and dunk certain food and snacks. The feeling of sitting on a couch after a tired day’s work and dipping a snack in a hot beverage is almost like divine intervention. I guess many of us have dunked snacks in milk or hot chocolate as children, and many of us continue with the tradition of dunking. Furthermore we dip and dunk snacks and foods in dips, sauce, ranch dressings, gravies, curries, and chutneys. Every individual has their favorite snack to dunk. My grandma had lost almost all her teeth by age 90. Well, she used to wear dentures; however whenever she would have a hot beverage she used to remove her dentures and have her dunk snacks. She used to dip Marie biscuits in a hot cup of tea, and also love to dunk her buttered toast bread in hot potato gravy. She couldn’t bite well at her age and enjoyed the softness of soggy food in her mouth.

Many individuals with few teeth or without teeth love to dunk or dip their snacks. When the food or snack gets soggy after few dips in a hot beverage it becomes easy for individuals without teeth to eat. It’s not just individuals without teeth that like to dunk snacks, well; everybody has their fun dunking snacks. There are no rules about dunking and dipping with snacks. You can dunk or dip snacks the way you like. However, if you dip a biscuit or cookie for long you are likely to hear the ‘plop’ sound in your glass, cup, or mug. Dunk a biscuit or cookie too many times and you will see the soggy portion fall into your beverage. Removing the soggy mess from your beverage can be quite a task, and so when you dip crispy snacks, few dips are sufficient to transform the snack into a soggy delight.

Below is a list of snacks and foods that taste awesome when dunked or dipped
