Last time my wife and I were at BJ’s wholesale club up on the Concord Mills exit (by Concord NC) we found a coupon for $3 off on the new TGI Fridays spinach and artichoke cheese dip. So we decided to give it a try.
We used it as one of the appetizers for our Thanksgiving spread. When I opened up the original box I found there were four smaller boxes inside. At first I heated one up in the microwave, but the serving was so small that I needed two to fill a small serving bowl.
The directions were easy to follow – lift a corner flap in the cover and then heat at high for 3 minutes. Stop and stir well then reheat at high for an additional minute. So it only takes about 4 minutes and this artichoke and spinach dip is ready to go. You might want to wait a minute or so for it to cool down a little before removing the cover and pouring it into a serving bowl.
The dip looks pretty good, and was of average taste for a cheese dip. I have made a better spinach and artichoke cheese dip myself. I think it was okay and so did my guests, but at the end of the night it was still mostly left. Why? Because it was only marginally good.
At a football game tailgate party it might have fared better, but it was surrounded by a lot of different homemade appetizers for our Thanksgiving celebration and it got passed by for better stuff.
Now, by looking at the above pictures you can see that clearly is not a big bowl I placed it in and it took 2 packages to sufficiently fill it. The TGI Fridays artichoke and spinach cheese dip as I already said was just okay. It wasn’t anything great. I have had far better cheese dips and I personally make a much better spinach and artichoke cheese dip.
I would pass this one on by unless there is a big coupon and you are looking for an average cheese dip.
