Poll of the Week - 6.07.2010

First, I want to issue a big apology for the lack of post on Thursday – basically, looking for an apartment and calling moving companies took over my life last week, and everything else kind of fell by the wayside! I’m sure you all missed Little Scarlet tons, but don’t worry, everything’s back on track now, and Little Scarlet will be publishing on schedule once again. On to the “Poll of the Week”!

I haven’t been back to Virginia in almost two years now, but every once in a while I get huge cravings for two things from my favorite Colonial Williamsburg sandwich shop, The Cheese Shop. The first is their Virginia ham sandwich, which is so good you’ll never be able to eat “Virginia ham” from anyplace else ever again; it’ll just be too much of a disappointment. And the second is a local favorite called “bread ends with house dressing”, which is exactly what it sounds like: any leftover bread ends that aren’t used for sandwiches are sold for dipping into The Cheese Shop’s famous house dressing.

Whether you’re dunking bread ends or chicken nuggets, the right dipping sauce can make all the difference. This week’s “Poll of the Week” asks, what’s your favorite all-around dipping sauce?


  1. seriously?? you talk up the house dressing and then don't make it an option? what's a wm alum to choose?

    i vote house dressing!

  2. House dressing!!! Or the Chik-fil-A honey roasted bbq sauce. Soooooo good.
    Or maybe all three Taco Bell sauces...

  3. My favortie dipping sauce is a mixture of yogurt, mashed garlic and dried mint. I can eat anything dipping into this sauce.

  4. Actually my favorite is honey mustard which isn't exactly mustard. What? You expected it to be chocolate? On fries and chicken? No!

  5. How do I choose Honey Mustard?

  6. I definitely just mouth-watered at the thought of house dressing. Dang.
