Dip-N-Go® is the first of its kind for conventional, single-serve products. Until its introduction, food accompanied by dips or sauces had to be eaten while seated, usually at the same place where it was purchased. Now, people can enjoy dippable foods just about anywhere they can take them.
Vernon, CA (PRWEB) December 1, 2008
With commuters spending around 100 hours per year in the car, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and Census, food companies are vying for their share of "mobile stomachs". Now, there's a new packaging weapon in the cup-holder cuisine arsenal that will widen commuters' choices to include dip-able foods -- the Dip-N-Go® cup from PWP Industries. The new cup also is a great choice for anyone on the go who wants to carry dip-able foods without the mess.
The Dip-N-Go® looks like a standard straight-walled container with a lid, but there's a twist -- the lid can be filled with a variety of dips and sauces and transformed into a dipping cup when opened
and then snapped into the cup rim.
"The Dip-N-Go® package was created in direct response to the continued demand for more convenient packaging for take-out and on-the-go applications," explains Terry Vovan, Vice President of Product Innovation, PWP Industries. "Dip-N-Go® is the first of its kind for conventional, single-serve products. Until its introduction, food accompanied by dips or sauces had to be eaten while seated, usually at the same place where it was purchased. Now, people can enjoy dippable foods just about anywhere they can take them."
Dip-N-Go® was warmly received by PWP's peers in the plastics industry and quickly gained recognition in the food industry. Prior to introduction, it received the 2007 Bronze Consumer
Packaging Award from the Society of Plastics Engineers, the 2007 PMA Impact Top 5 Excellence Award for Produce Packaging for Food Safety and Functionality/Technology and a 2007 honorable mention for Consumer Convenience Packaging in the QSR/FPI Foodservice Packaging Awards.
Dip-N-Go's award-winning features include:
- Tamper-resistance with PWP's Tamper Resistant™ tab to assure consumers that tampering has not occurred.
- Leak resistance/air tightness for freshness and increased shelf-life
- Juice traps for certain fruits and vegetables
- Perfect size for car cup holders
- A greener choice - Dip-N-Go® is made out of PETE, the world's
most recycled plastic made from FDA compliant recycled water
bottles. Dip-N-Go's tamper resistant tab eliminates the need
for extra banding or wraps, which results in less energy for
packing the end product and less landfill waste.

or chef can create including:
- Fresh-cut fruit with yogurt, fruit dip or whipped cream
- Pretzel sticks with cheese sauce or peanut butter
- Fresh-cut vegetables with cheese or ranch sauce

- Cookie sticks with dipping chocolate
- Chips and salsa
- Waffle sticks or silver-dollar pancakes with syrup
