Dippin’ Stix Are Fun and Good for You Too!

March 20th, 2020 · No Comments

Chances are you’ve heard the old saying about apples and doctors, and at Dippin’ Stix, we’re changing the adage just a little bit: An apple or carrot a day could help you keep a thick waistline away.


We don’t find this much of a challenge since Americans are legendary snackers—from sandwiches to doughnuts to chips, there’s plenty snacks out there to chew on. However, you have fewer choices that are not only good for you, but also actually interesting to snack on as well.


At Dippin’ Stix, we’re looking to change your thinking about what you choose to eat during that break at work, ride home, or after-school snack for your kids. We make our snack foods just a little different and more special and even fun. It’s hard to quibble with the source of fiber and nutrition to be found in an apple slice or a baby carrot. But instead of boring your taste buds with plain old fruit or veggies, we’ve added a twist—a very flavorful twist at that!


Remember as a kid how much it was to get an apple covered in caramel? Now that still is a treat, but it’s also kind of messy, and in some cases, just a bit too much apple for the average sweet tooth. Enter Dippin’ Stix and its fun snacks. We’ve got that classic caramel dip all figured out. Instead of pouring it on the apple, we let you decide just how much you’d like to drench your fruit slice in that brown, sticky, delicious treat. It’s a DIY snack and so easy to enjoy.


But we didn’t just take a crowd pleaser and stop there. We also let you choose from other Dippin’ Stix varieties like caramel and nuts, peanut butter and chocolate, and peanut butter all by itself. We also offer apple slices and yogurt fruit dip that is gaining a following. And if apples just aren’t your speed, we have the classic combo known as baby carrots and ranch dip. All of our snacks taste great, and you know that when you’re eating our snacks, you’re doing something good for yourself.


In all, you can choose from eight flavor varieties of Dippin’ Stix, and with five in each pack, you’ll want to stock up for a week’s worth of healthy snacking or grab some extra boxes so you can mix up your snacks.

Snacking Can Harm or Help Your Weight Loss Plan: Find Healthy Snacks from Dippin’ Stix

October 15th, 2019 · No Comments

When you stop to think of the food available to us, it’s no surprise why our country is in a state of increasing obesity. If you are looking to lose weight or have already set up a weight loss plan, consider healthy snacks that will help, not harm, your weight loss goals with fruit and vegetable snacks from Dippin’ Stix.


It seems as though we, as a society, are constantly bombarded with foods, drinks, and snacks and the ready availability of them. For example, you may have school parties, birthday parties, office parties, weddings, dates, and get-togethers at a favorite restaurant. You also have snack and drink vending machines around nearly every corner of a school or office building. Combine the ubiquity of snacks with declining activity levels, and you have the perfect formula for weight gain. Consequently, the ever-expanding waistlines in the United States continues to grow.


The phrase “everything in moderation” holds true in eating as well as in other areas of life. For example, you can have your cake and eat it too, if you watch portion sizes and enjoy responsibly. While there are many foods on supermarket shelves that may not be entirely healthy for you, if enjoyed in moderation, they can fit into a healthy diet.


Consider the following dietary facts when snacking between meals:


  • Snacking isn’t meant to replace a meal. In fact, many nutritionists recommend alternating meals and snacks every hour or two throughout the day.
  • Snacking helps to curb your appetite and prevent overeating.
  • Avoid snacks loaded with sugar and a high calorie count.
  • Snacking on foods such as fruits and vegetables will fill you up, so you’re less likely to eat a large meal.
  • In addition to snacking on healthy foods such as fruits and vegetables, try eating smaller meals.
  • Avoid mindless eating. While there is nothing wrong with healthy snacks, don’t graze all day long. And always be aware of portion control, limiting yourself to single servings.


If you are looking into a weight loss plan or have already started, snacking can help rather than harm your health goals. Dippin’ Stix snacks have healthy eating and weight control in mind such as our fresh crisp baby carrots with premium ranch dip and our apples with yogurt, peanut butter, or caramel dip. Check out our healthy, delicious selections at a retailer near you. And definitely consider healthy snacks that will help, not harm, your weight loss goals with fruit and vegetable snacks from Dippin’ Stix.

Conquer Your Kids’ Snack Attacks with Dippin’ Stix Snacks

September 30th, 2019 · No Comments

When your kids come home from school screaming for food and snacks, it’s time to refuel. They’ve been cooped up in the classroom, and lunch was probably hours ago. Afternoon snacks are the perfect opportunity to refuel their bodies with nutritious and healthy foods. Instead of filling their tummies with sugary cookies or salty chips, serve them healthy kids snacks like Dippin’ Stix.


Whether their time home is short before their sports activity or they’re home for the evening, provide them with snacks that will fill them up until dinner, and, make sure the snacks are fun yet include more protein and less sugar.

Whole foods.

Instead of processed foods like chips or cookies, give them apples with peanut butter, string cheese, or nuts.

Dairy products.

These typically contain protein and help maintain lean muscle mass while making you feel full longer. Serve a glass of milk or have string cheese available.

Fruits and vegetables.

Not only do those hungry bodies need protein, they need vitamins C, A, and K as well. Fruits and vegetables are the leading sources of these vitamins.

Find substitutions.

If a milkshake is on the wish list when your kids step through the door, substitute with a smoothie and use yogurt instead of ice cream. If they enjoy apples, think outside the box and prepare an apple quesadilla, apple muffins, or apples with peanut butter or dip.

Lead by example!

If your kids see you eating sugary cookies, salty chips, and drinking soda, chances are they will follow suit. Lead by example and get your kids involved in helping prepare foods. This will encourage them to eat healthy so they feel well.

Make your own snacks.

You don’t always need a recipe to be healthy. Gather some ingredients to make your own trail mix and include dried cranberries and bananas, walnuts, peanuts, sunflower seeds, raisins, or cereal.


Dippin’ Stix can help with sliced apples and dip and crisp baby carrots and dip. These healthy kids snacks are not only affordable, nutritious, and healthy—they’re also fun with individual or family size packaging. Check out the healthy kids snacks available from Dippin’ Stix today from a retailer near you. When your kids plow through the door with a raging appetite, conquer their snack attack with healthy and nutritious snacks from Dippin’ Stix!
