I love a good dip. A dip is something that I usually order as an appetizer when I go out to eat. But sometimes there are quiet nights where we just watch TV, Netflix, or a movie on DVD. So we make ourselves a couple of drinks and enjoy snack food rather than a real meal. Of all the dips I've tried Trader Joe's Spinach and Artichoke Dip is my favorite. Pick up a few of these if you are having company or watching the game. Awesome product. I actually tried this first in-store. Yup. Those samples got me.
This one of those things that go in my cart regularly.
If you've ever been to a chain restaurant, then you know that something similar is often on the menu.
And it's popular for a reason: it's cheesy, it makes you believe you are having something healthy with the addition of veggies.
But truthfully, this is just delicious. Just don't believe the serving size.
While this box is absolutely minuscule and I have a hard time finding it because of its itty bitty size, this box will have you believe there are 8 servings in it. If you are a normal person with a normal appetite, this is really 1-2 servings.
Now, I understand the space-saving design. The box is only big enough to fit the product (unlike the bag of chips you might have with this, which might be more air than the product).
So you'll have to deal with a circular tube of magically shrink-wrapped dip.
With the microwave oven directions, it will come out solid every time. I find it doesn't always need to microwave it as long as suggested.
But really, this product doesn't disappoint in any way. I've served it to people and it is often one of the first items to get cleared out. Just be prepared if you are expecting a crowd you'll need quite a few of these little boxes.
And for $2.99 it's a perfect replacement for a restaurant-style dip that you can have at home.
Would I buy this again? Yes, I've bought Trader Joe's Creamy Spinach and Artichoke Dip many times. It's a household favorite.

Trader Joe's Spinach and Artichoke Dip
Product Name: Trader Joe's Spinach and Artichoke Dip
Product Description: Trader Joe's Spinach and Artichoke Dip is a perennial favorite that hides away in the frozen section
Trader Joe's Spinach and Artichoke Dip is a perennial favorite but is often hidden in a teeny tiny box
- Delicious dip ready in minutes
- As good as homemade
- Mostly spinach with some artichoke
- More affordable than other dips.
- This can be hard to find given how tiny the box is
- In our household, this might only be 2 servings if we are lucky.
Maybe in the oven would be better. Sprinkle some white cheddar on top and bake it until it gets golden.
Great suggestion Alek! Thanks again for stopping by. Stay safe and healthy!
I love this convenient dip. But I have never used it as a dip. I add freeze dried spinach flakes, shredded artichoke hearts and Peccorino Romano chz to the dip. I often also add shredded rotisserie chicken as well as light cream cheese to add to the bulk of the dip. I use this mix to make crepes, quesadillas as well as utilizing frozen phyllo cups to make on the spot appetizers or an appetizer dinner LOL. This dip is so versatile.

Great dip! I also used it to make stuffed mushrooms.
Great suggestion Paulette! Thanks for stopping by!
Brenda, I cannot find this dip, I keep looking in the freezer section and do not see it. Do you remember what it was near? Love your reviews, you have never steered me wrong.
Hey Ellen! This one is a hit or miss where they put it in each store. Worse yet it is a tiny box. I mean really small maybe like 4 inches wide. My local store keeps them near the appetizers like the corn dogs and mini tacos. I hope that helps. And thank you always for your kind words.
Thank you Brenda, I will look closely now, I want to try this with the Tik Tock Feta Pasta, I saw it on IG and it looked really good. And thank you for all your reviews, really appreciate your time. Ellen
Found it. with help from the staff. Looking forward to trying this!
Big hit for us, as used in the TikTok recipe with cherry tomatoes!
Thanks for sharing Susan!
when you use the phyllo cups - do you defrost the dip & put in the cups? Thank you!
