While our major competitors make their dye kits in China, Doc Hinkle's is proudly made in the USA. The dye itself is handcrafted in small
batches right here in Pennsylvania Dutch Country. We bottle and pack
everything ourselves. Our colors and other ingredients along with all our
packaging are all manufactured in the USA. This approach is
certainly not the cheapest, but we think it’s the best to provide quality and
tradition to your Easter festivities.
Our dye is not simply food coloring in a fancy package. It is not just a dip
product like all the others. It’s a true paint-on product that dries to a
water-resistant shine. The gloss and paint-like nature of Doc Hinkle’s is
not available in any other product. We don’t do stickers, glitter, or
googly eyes. We make a unique and American product that lets you get the
most out of the creative tradition of dyeing Easter eggs.
For quite some time, Doc Hinkle’s Dye has come in small bottles with a square bottom.
They were originally glass but then switched over to plastic. For
2014 we have changed to new bottles. It is not a decision that we made
lightly and we know that some of long-customers will be disappointed, but the
change was required in order for Doc Hinkle's to continue. Obtaining the
custom bottles became harder and harder each year, even as the price went up
and quality went down. Last year, we could no longer get the bottles made
in the USA and we had to import them. At this point we decided to switch to a
more standard bottle that is made in the USA. The new bottles also
help resist spills because they are connected and less likely to tip over.
Rest assured that the dye itself has not changed. We have not
decreased the amount of dye either.
