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 and 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.
And it is 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.
