The pros: Trader Joe's Truffle Dip is new and setting social media ablaze as Truffle seems to be the flavor of the season this winter.
The cons: This also seems to be seasonal.
If you love the flavor of truffle, then this is another item that should end up in your cart. Yes, Trader Joe's recently debuted White Truffle Chips, Truffle Butter, and last year graced us with Truffle Mac and Cheese. Now there is a dip full of truffle flavor.
Now, this dip is not for everyone. Truffle is a bit more of an acquired taste. Some people love it and some people can't stand the unique earthy flavor that truffle brings. If you already know that you don't like truffle, then please don't reach for this. If you can't get enough of truffle, then this is a good item to pick up.
Now this is a thick dip that might break a typical potato chip easily. In fact the first ingredient is cream cheese, so that should give you some indication on the thickness level. It is slightly thinned out with the addition of Greek yogurt. Like the truffle butter, there is a good amount of truffles in this. You'll likely see a black dot or two in dip of your chip.
This has a nice balanced flavor between the dairy and the truffle. While I liked it with chips, I liked it even more with a baked, or in my case the slightly bland Trader Joe's Hasselback potato.
For $5.99 this is a bit pricey, but truffles do not come cheap. This is a great dip to share or repurpose as an accompaniment to a potato dish where those flavors pair so nicely. I'd buy this again, but it may or may not be around by the time I need a new container.

Would I buy this again? Yes, I would buy Trader Joe's Truffle Dip again. However, probably by the time I am ready to purchase this again, it will likely be gone for the season.
