Trader Joe's Shoppers Can't Wait To Try Its New Vegan Nacho Dip

Loyal Trader Joe's shoppers love the grocery chain for its low prices, friendly staff, and frequently updated selection of store brand products — some of which, including Everything but the Bagel Seasoning Blend, frozen Cauliflower Gnocchi, and Buffalo Style Chicken Dip, have attained cult status.

As those who indulge in that latter product might be aware, Trader Joe's offers a surprisingly wide array of dips. From your classic guacamole to dill pickle-flavored hummus to tzatziki, the supermarket chain sells many products for dipping crackers and crudités or spreading across sandwiches (via Insider). And though many of Trader Joe's dips are dairy-based, the California chain has recently been stirring up several innovative vegan options for its plant based customers, like its Vegan Buffalo Dip which appeared on store shelves in late March. And now, Trader Joe's has released a vegan nacho dip that shoppers seem pretty excited to try, with some hoping it will compare favorably to another dairy-free item.

A replacement for TJ's Creamy Cashew Fiesta Dip?

According to the ingredients listed on the vegan nacho dip package (seen in a photo shared by Trader Joe's fan Instagram account @traderjoeslist), the new snack food is made primarily with cashews, coconut oil, onions, tapioca starch, and sea salt. Only a few of the commenters on the Instagram post have tried the dip, but the ones who have shared mostly positive feelings about the new product, with the worst review calling it "not bad ... not great."

As some noted, the new vegan nacho dip could be a replacement for the chain's popular Creamy Cashew Fiesta Dip. Though the product received mostly positive reviews, shoppers on Trader Joe's Reviews began reporting in January 2022 the dip appeared to have been discontinued. Fans of the vegan Fiesta Dip shared their curiosity about how the two stack up on the Instagram post, with @traderjoeslist responding to many they believe the two are quite similar. It just goes to show: you win some (dips), you lose some (dips).
