My view of a perfect date has evolved over time. I used to desire fancy outings at upscale restaurants or lavish gifts, but now, all I want is to relax at home in my pajamas with some wine and a variety of Trader Joe’s dips.

My love for delicious dips has remained constant. They are the perfect accompaniment to crackers or chips. If you’ve ever been overwhelmed by the variety of dips at Trader Joe’s, I’ve got you covered. I went on a dip sampling spree at my local Trader Joe’s to determine the best ones.

The Best Trader Joe’s Dips, Ranked

After trying 17 Trader Joe’s dips, here is my ranking from least favorite to best.

17. Dill Pickle Hummus

While the dill pickle hummus wasn’t my favorite, I appreciated its unique flavor. It delivered on its promise of dill pickle taste, similar to how one can’t be surprised when a known “f*ckboy” ends up ghosting. Despite its honesty, it didn’t impress me as much as I had hoped.

16. Romesco Dip

The Romesco Dip, inspired by Spanish flavors, fell short of expectations. While it had a slight spice kick, it left me unenthusiastic.

15. Chunky Guacamole

This reduced-guilt guacamole made with Greek yogurt was fresh and creamy but lacked the authentic guacamole taste. It was a decent dip but not outstanding.

14. Everything but the Bagel Greek-Style Yogurt Dip

While this dip had potential, it left me wanting more flavor. It was decent but didn’t stand out.

13. Spicy Hummus Dip

The Spicy Hummus Dip had a mild to medium heat but failed to leave a lasting impression. It was an average dip that didn’t stand out.

12. Tomato & Basil Hummus Dip

This dip performed well as a tomato and basil dip but fell short as a hummus variant. It was good but didn’t excel in the hummus category.

11. Chocolate Hummus

Trader Joe’s Chocolate Hummus, while not a traditional dip, was smooth and subtly sweet. It was unique and enjoyable, especially when paired with different dipping options.

10. Horseradish Hummus

The Horseradish Hummus surprised me with its tangy and delightful flavor. Despite my initial hesitation due to not being a horseradish fan, it won me over with its taste.

9. Everything and the Elote Greek Style Yogurt Dip

This dip was boldly flavored with garlic, parm, and chipotle pepper powder, delivering a satisfying taste. It stood out among the competition and paired well with various dippers.

8. Garlic Spread Dip

Trader Joe’s Garlic Spread Dip, featuring a strong garlic flavor, was a hit. It was incredibly tasty and versatile, perfect for enhancing various dishes.

7. Artichoke & Jalapeno Dip

This dip received high praise for its texture and delicious jalapeño flavor. It stood out among the others and was a delightful surprise.

The Green Goddess Dip, packed with garlic, parsley, and basil, was a pleasant surprise. It offered a light and fresh taste, ideal for pairing with veggies.

4. Pimento Cheese Dip

The Pimento Cheese Dip was a hit, impressing even a cheese enthusiast like me. Its rich flavor made it a standout choice, perfect for dipping or enjoying on its own.

3. Sour Cream Spinach Dip

The Sour Cream Spinach Dip was a top contender with its incredible texture and taste. It was a crowd-pleaser and would make a great addition to any gathering.

2. Bruschetta Sauce

The Bruschetta Sauce was a delightful surprise, perfect for a cozy night in or a special occasion. Its versatility as both a dip and a sauce made it a standout choice.
