When you're eating fast food in the car, there's a good chance you're going to spill your sauce. Sure, your cup holder or that little nook by your center console or behind your gear shift might work pretty well for holding condiments, but every now and then a bump or a rogue, off-center dipping episode might just mess up everything, leaving you with creamy ranch, bright red ketchup or sticky sweet and sour all over your seat.
Fortunately for all of us on-the-go eaters, we have a shot at foregoing that 2017 life and instead living in 2047, because a group of Kickstarter geniuses have invented something called the DipClip, and while I can't speak for you, I know I definitely need it in my life (video below).
This is what it looks like:
According to Milkmen Design, the makers, the clip securely holds "the four most commonly used sizes and shapes of sauce containers," which include sauce cups from McDonald's, Burger King, Chick-fil-A, Wendy's, KFC, Dairy Queen, Jack in the Box, Arby's, Popeye's, Sonic, Carl's Jr., Hardee's and Heinz.
"At Milkmen Design we believe that dipping sauces were made to go with nuggets and fries," they said. "For generations, humans had to choose between making a mess in their vehicle or consuming bland, sauce-free food. We were tired of standing by idly as the perfect union of fries and nuggets, and the precious sauces that [complement] them, grew strained. So we created the DipClip to repair this relationship, reuniting ketchup with french fry, nugget with BBQ, and so on."
The clip is designed to fit most vents. Pledge just $15 (or more!) and you can receive two DipClips along with two attachable ramekins that can hold any sauce you'd like, if for instance you prefer to bring your own, or if you somehow end up with non-compatible packets.
You can find additional packages for a bit more money, and if you contribute $100 or more, you'll end up with a gold plated DipClip, if you're into that fast food luxury lifestyle.
DipClip hit its fundraising goal on Nov. 20, according to Milkmen Design's Facebook page. This means that you don't need to donate that money (with free shipping for U.S. customers) and wonder if you're even going to get your product. Woohoo!
