Spotlight on: Sweet Melissa Dips on Long Island

After my trip to the local farmer’s market last year, I was intrigued by Sweet Melissa dips.

I got to sample many flavors at her table and learned she lives right down the street from me! Melissa, the owner, is SWEET herself and her dips were just delicious. It’s nice to support local business isn’t it?

What is Sweet Melissa Dips?

Sweet Melissa Dips is a home based North Fork Long Island gourmet dip company. Sweet Melissa gourmet products are all made by Melissa with tender loving care.  I have over 450 different blends to choose from. Sweet Melissa Dips are gourmet spice blends that create dips, rubs, marinades, dipping & grilling oils, mustards, vinegar’s, soup mixes, dessert dips, hot sauces, drink mixes, natural herbs, and many more gourmet creations.

Sweet Melissa products have an old-fashioned appeal to them and are all homemade blends. The herbs and vegetables are grown on my local farm grounds and by farmers on Long Island. I use only top grade A spices to create our magical spice blends.

Sweet Melissa also specializes in children and adult cooking parties, gourmet dip parties, fundraiser events, guest speaking demos and arts and craft festivals. Sweet Melissa also makes beautiful gourmet food baskets, favors for weddings, showers, and all fun occasions.
