Ship & Dip is a subscription box that delivers small-batch condiments to your door every month.
At this point, it seems like there’s a subscription box for everything. The path that Birchbox paved has proven to be both popular and a successful e-commerce method. Ship & Dip is another one of those subscription box services, but it fulfills a need that hasn’t been covered before: condiments. The company curates a monthly box of small-batch condiments — from jam to salsa to giardiniera. The hope is that subscribers will be able to break free from the same few brands that dominate the shelves of your local supermarket. It also helps local producers of condiments reach distribution on a national level.
Each Ship & Dip box comes with three full-sized bottles of different types of condiments. Accompanying each of the condiments is a short description of the company that produced them. It’s also possible to buy the condiments on an individual basis through Ship & Dip’s online shop. At $33 per month, the subscription is somewhat costly — especially considering you might receive condiments that you won’t use. There’s also an option to sign up for a quarterly subscription, where you receive a box every 90 days for $33 as well. As a gift item for the condiment lover in your family or for your own use, it’s worth signing up in order to start switching up your cooking habits and get some diversity on the shelves of your refrigerator.
