Dip ahead: Artichoke + Spinach

26 Jun

I think there’s a petition circulating that is lobbying Congress to make artichoke spinach dip the sixth food group.

If there’s not, there should be.

I’ve eyed TJ’s box of A+S, but I’ve been shy of acquiring the package, afraid of choking on the thick fat and calorie counts.

But, there are no fat or calories in the samples at the tasting bar, right?!

Just a wafer-thin sample…

The taste I had proved to be as delicious as I’d feared dreamed.

And, actually, the pounds-per-inch factor wasn’t so bad:

Trader Joe’s Edamame Hummus

1 Oct

When it comes to dips and spreads, Trader Joe’s is on a roll. And a chip. And a cracker. As often as possible.

Trader Joe’s Edamame Hummus

In several other groceries we’ve visited, a container of hummus is twice this price and not necessarily as tasty. And the edamame base ingredient is healthier than other choices. (Although, TJ’s sells a fabulous array of hummuses. It just happens that this base is one of the best for you.)

Highly recommended as one of those items that taste many times more decadent than it really is! A win-win product.

Thank you, Trader Joe’s!

And thank you for reading and following these posts! If you’ve had Edamame Hummus, what did you think?

Crab dip supreme – how to make it

23 May

Kristin from TJ’s tasting bar explains how easy it is to take three ingredients (refrigerated can of crab meat, tub of cream cheese, seafood cocktail sauce) and turn them into an exciting start to any gathering. Serves 10-12.

BUT WAIT! There’s more…Trader Joe’s is sharing the RECIPE in old school written-down form!

(Kristin paired the dip with Things I Love At Trader Joes fave PITA CRACKERS.)

Thank you, Kristin!

Thank you, TJ’s!
