The actor and talk-show host is never afraid of speaking her mind on various topics, including food etiquettes. In one of the December episodes of "The Drew Barrymore" show, Drew Barrymore disclosed a particularly poor food etiquette that she won't want to see anyone pull off at her party.

Alongside co-host Ross Mathews, she tackled different nasty party habits one by one. About 35% of people responded to a survey on double-dipping at parties. "You are disgusting," he concluded. "Not that I would ever judge you." Another half of the survey recorded people keeping an eye out for lousy party habits. It also said they'd help remove guests from the list if they found them double-dipping.

Barrymore seemed appalled by people who dipped food into their mouth, dipped it into their food, and back into their mouth.

"I just have to say that I am so anti-double dipping," Barrymore inserted into the conversation. "And don't you even reverse by taking a bite and then turning it around and then dipping the other end in!"

"That's the same as double-dipping!" she quipped. "Why don't you just lick it while you're at it?"

Who Is Drew Barrymore?

She was born Drew Blythe Barrymore on February 22, 1975, in Los Angeles, California. She was born to Ildiko Jaid Barrymore and actor John Drew Barrymore Jr.

However, her family tree of actors doesn't end there; Her great-grandparents Maurice Barrymore and Georgiana Drew and grandparents John Barrymore and Dolores Costello were also actors. The popular director, Steven Spielberg, is Barrymore's godfather.

When Kaif became estranged from her husband, she began to take her daughter to auditions when Barrymore was a kid. As a result, Barrymore appeared in a television commercial for Puppy Choice dog food before she clocked one.

Barrymore made her big-screen debut at five in Ken Russell's "Altered States." Two years later, she landed one of her most famous roles; she played Gertie, the cute little sister in "E.T.: The Extraterrestrial." The role pushed Barrymore into the limelight. After working on the movie, she featured on NBC's "The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson" and became the youngest host in "Saturday Night Live."

The Drew Barrymore Show

The show is the first syndicated American talk show. CBS distributed the show, which debuted in 2020. The year after, it was renewed for the second season. The program followed human interaction stories, lifestyle segments, field pieces, and celebrity guests.

According to Barrymore, a big part of why she wanted to host a broadcast show was to maintain a healthy lifestyle as the mother of two young kids. This was in contrast to working on a film location where it's not surprising for film personnel to work "4 a.m. to 11 p.m."

She also said of the show, "I'm in the joy business. I don't carry the umbrella of darkness with me. I didn't want to let go of everything I'd done and who I was. I wanted to make a new application of all that in a way that better served me schedule-wise."

The actress launched several digital episodes in the lead-up to her broadcast debut. This included "The Making of the Drew Barrymore Show" and heartfelt discussions with other talk-show hosts who have influenced her in "The Art of the Interview." The episodes have included Barrymore's talks with Gayle King, Jimmy Fallon, Whoopi Goldberg, Andy Cohen, and Sean Evans.

Barrymore Appreciates A Double Dipper's Honesty

An audience member of her show noted to her and Mathews that he's a double dipper. He also mentioned that it'd be expected mainly if the host served dip at their party.

"Good for you for your honesty," the Hollywood icon calmed him, revealing that she thought some people would have lied and said they were against it when they secretly were a double dipper. "Thank you because everybody lies," she concluded.

She also added that she'd start serving dips in small bowls so that guests don't need to share. "I now do small little bowls of guacamole," she noted. And this also seemingly cuts down on the potential spread of bacteria.

The Effects Of Double Dipping

According to Havard Health, double-dipping increases twice the bacteria available in the dip. Research also posits that different dips have more bacteria than the others. For instance, after double-dipping, a salsa dip was more contaminated than a chocolate or cheese dip.

It has become pertinent not to take chances with any sauce. As the outlet reported, many respiratory diseases can be carried by saliva, but there's been no documented case of anybody becoming ill from double-dipping.

However, if the fear of increased bacteria doesn't prevent a double dipper, perhaps the disgust from Barrymore and Co-host Mathews just might.
