I can't figure out why it has the name. What does it mean? Apparently there are several types, but they're all called crack dip.

I just looked it up and they're all different, so I'm guessing that it's because each of these dips are addictive, like crack is. (Not that I'd know firsthand, of course!)

I guess it could be that, but it is really odd for that to be the reason. I've know for years that heroin is addictive, but who would call a dip heroin dip? Or Oxycontin dip? LOL Oh, of course, you wouldn't know first hand! Nor would I. Really, I wouldn't. No, I wouldn't know. lolol
Stop looking at me like that!

It's called Crack dip because it's addictive. ...it's not that strange.

I saw a cooking channel on Youtube that did a recipe for Crack Potatoes...the Youtube cook didn't explain, but the dish looked really rich & over the top.

Crack is slang for something that you don't want to stop eating. Nutella is "crack" for me.

Crack Dip rolls off the tongue a lot easier than "heroin dip" or "oxycontin dip".

Because it was the house dressing at a ranch in the Hidden Valley.

Quote:
In the early 1950s, Steve Henson developed what is now known as ranch dressing while working as a plumbing contractor for three years in the remote Alaskan bush. In 1954, he and his wife Gayle opened Hidden Valley Ranch, a dude ranch near Santa Barbara, California, where they served it to the guests. It became popular, and they began selling it in packages for guests to take home, both as a finished product and as packets of seasoning to be mixed with mayonnaise and buttermilk. They incorporated Hidden Valley Ranch Food Products, Inc. and opened a factory to manufacture it in larger volumes, distributed first to supermarkets in the Southwest, and later nationally. In October 1972, the Hidden Valley Ranch brand was bought by Clorox for $8 million.[1]

In a recent magazine published locally the fried chicken made by a chef in a nearby town is supposed to be unbelievably delicious. So I suppose it would now be logically called crack chicken. The whole concept is too strange. Why would anyone want to promote the notion that crack is so totally wonderful when it ruins lives over and over.
