What's the difference between 'spill' and 'drip'?

food that can easily make a mess, often foods that have a lot of liquid content — soups, sauces, anything that can spill or drip.
Messy Food?

    Think of soup being eaten with a spoon. The person may tilt the spoon so that some of the soup spills, or the soup that adheres to the underside of the spoon from dipping it into the soup can drip. Spills are often in the form of drips, but not all drips are spills.
