Nobody really knows who introduced Americans to cheese dips, but filmmaker Nick Rogers believes it all started in Arkansas, at a small restaurant which was called Little Mexico at the time in 1935.
On October 9, the town of North Little Rock will host the first World Cheese Dip Championship in Dickey-Stephens Park. Some of the state's best restaurants will dish up their favourite cheese dips and compete for various titles such as Best meat incorporation and Healthiest dip. Next to the championship, North Little Rock will also sport a festival with fun and games for everyone! There will be arts and crafts, as well as Arkansas foodie specialties, so get there to see what the cheesy fuss is all about!
