Trader Joe’s Creamy Spinach & Artichoke Dip Review

Trader Joe's Creamy Spinach & Artichoke Dip

We have to admit, we’ve passed over the Trader Joe’s Creamy Spinach & Artichoke Dip countless times. We’re not really sure why. It looks amazing, and we love spinach dip. But every time we’ve seen it in the past, we thought, “Hmmm, today just doesn’t seem like the right day to pick up a batch of that.”

But that changes today, dear readers. Today we’re breaking out of our dip-less funk and testing out the Trader Joe’s Creamy Spinach & Artichoke Dip. It’s the right thing to do.

Heating this is delightfully easy. This actually comes in a muffin-shaped chunk that’s sealed inside plastic. Cut open the plastic and plop the dip into a bowl, cheese side up. After that, it’s a simple matter of microwaving it and stirring. (You can read the full cooking instructions by checking out the package scans at the bottom of this page.)

Once it’s all heated up, this dip tastes wonderful. Neither the artichoke nor the spinach overwhelms the flavor (as is so often the case with imbalanced dips), yet each does provide its distinct properties. The dip is soft and creamy, with just a little bit of swiss and parmesan cheese thrown into the mix to give it some form.

It’s an excellent combo, and all of it blends very ell to create a tasty dip for your snack foods. Of course, it’s even better once you start dipping things in it.

There are a bazillion ways to enjoy a bowl of spinach artichoke dip, but our personal favorite is with a box of Wheat Thins. Here, the softness of the dip provides a wonderful contrast to the crunchiness of the crackers, and we really enjoy that. Of course, we won’t discourage you from pairing yours with some fresh carrot sticks or even some warm bread. These are all good options.

With a snack food like this, it can sometimes be hard to stop eating. Sometimes, you just absentmindedly swipe crackers into your dip without even paying attention to how much you’ve been eating. There’s a pretty decent amount of dip in this container, and Trader Joe’s suggests 1/8 of it as a serving size. If you can limit yourself to that amount, you’re only eating 45 calories and 135 mg of sodium. That’s pretty reasonable. However, if you zone out due to the pleasures provided by this dip, you could end up eating all of it in a sitting, bringing those totals up to 360 calories and 1,080 mg of sodium — and that’s before you add the numbers from the snack that you’ll be dipping.

The Trader Joe’s Creamy Spinach & Artichoke Dip is very good, and we’re not sure why we waited so long to try it out. It’s super easy to make and it tastes great. You do have to be careful, of course, because it’s quite hard to stop eating once you get into it. Still, this makes a wonderful snack for anyone who likes to dip crackers. Eat responsibly and enjoy, dear Freezer Meal Frenzy friends.
