Trader Joe’s Spinach & Kae Greek Yogurt Dip

Trader Joe's Spinach & Kale Greek Yogurt Dip

I have mentioned that yogurt is a better topping than sour milk for baked potatoes. It tastes equally good, and you can cut out unnecessary calories. This dip follows the same principle. Low-fat yogurt can be used as a base for snack dips, without losing any flavor. We did not see any non-reduced-guilt versions of this product at the store and both agreed that they do not really need one.

It is quite delicious in its “spinach and Kale” component. Sonia and me could not tell you exactly what kale tastes like. It’s probably seaweed… Yes, it was once. However, I will say that it is possible to leave out the kale and not notice any difference. Spinach would have been fine. But “spinach-kale dip” sounds much more appealing and is worthy of being purchased by easily-impressed consumers such as me.

Greek yogurt is clearly having its moment in the sun. What with Fage, Oikos, and Yoplait pushing their Greek style products as the next healthy snack food craze—and even companies like Ben and Jerry’s getting in on the action, it’s no wonder TJ’s is pumping out a few Greek yogurt type products. It’s a mixed bag for me. It is best to review it product-by-product.

It was served with mini-pitas and crackers. It was delicious with both. Although we are certain that the list could be expanded to include more pairings, we will let you explore your options. We’d love to hear from you if you have tried something new with this dip. Keep it food-related. What your partner and you do behind closed doors when you dip? YourBusiness is your business.

It’s creamy, a little bit spinachy, and has a hint spice and zestiness. It could be described as a cold version a good restaurant-style spinach spread. If you enjoy that kind of thing, it’s delicious. Sonia and me both love this product. Four stars from Sonia. Three and a quarter stars from me.

The bottom line: 7.5/10
