    Party food

    Cocktail weiners....punch.....veggie dip....chip dip.....

    What are foods that you pretty much only eat at parties?
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    I agree those would be nice to consume at a party, but we're really looking more for things one consumes exclusively at parties.

    canapes!

    Dip in general.

    Finger food like bruchetta, mini sandwiches, chocolate covered anything, fritos.

    Crock pot _________. (Fill in the blank - beans, dip, meatballs, etc.)

    I never eat cocktail weiners. not at a party, not ever. Never.

    The only time I eat food that has been left out way too long to be safe is at parties.

    Bacon wrapped around water-chestnuts. All the more special cuz it's on a toothpick.
