Dip Queen

It’s no secret to anyone that I’m a huge snacker. Aside from my beloved breakfast, I could easily snack all day and never sit down to meal. In an ideal world, I would eat chips and dips all.day.long.

So you can imagine that I was all but salivating when I found out that I’d be given the opportunity to try Marzetti Otria Greek Yogurt dip. When I went to the grocery store to pick up my dip, I honestly stood here for five minutes trying to decide which flavor to take home with me. I had to choose between Chipotle Cheese, Cilantro Salsa Garden Herb Ranch, and Spinach and Artichoke Greek Yogurt Dips. So many choices!

But the winner was…

As soon as I got this baby in my possession, I grabbed some crackers and dipped right in! I was a little nervous because I’m a huge fan of real spinach and artichoke dip (read: lots of fat) so I wasn’t sure a Greek yogurt version could truly hold it’s own.

Holy smooth and creamy deliciousness! I worried for nothin’, friends. I could definitely taste the Greek yogurt, but it wasn’t overwhelming. I definitely felt like I was indulging, and I ate about seven cracker-fulls before I had to step away.

I’m not a calorie counter by any means, but I do try to avoid “calorie bombs” such as the aforementioned “real” spinach and artichoke dip. I can’t tell you how happy I am to have found a healthy substitute :)

Would you look at that! 60 calories per serving and I can pronounce everything in the ingredients list. It’s a quirk of mine, but if I can’t pronounce three or more things on the ingredients list, I put it back on the shelf and look for another candidate. Lucky for me, Otria Greek Yogurt Dip is here to stay! :)

What I also like about this dip is that I can totally see myself using it to fool my friends and family. The “Colleen standard” spinach and artichoke dip in a bread bowl just got a whole lot healthier. To whomever is attending the next party I bring a snack to – you’re welcome.

Aside from dip in a bread bowl, I’d really like to try this dip as a salad dressing. Just think: Spinach, artichoke hearts, onions, mushrooms and cheese topped with a dollop of Otria dip. Mmm – I think I may have tomorrow’s lunch all figured out :)

I was one of the bloggers selected by T. Marzetti Company and Clever Girls Collective to host a Marzetti Otria Greek Yogurt Veggie Dip review. They provided me with product to test myself and compensation for my time. However, my opinions are entirely my own.

    Love the Chipotle Cheese flavor :) You’ll have to try that next! It’s spicy and great with veggies. I hadn’t tried the spinach artichoke; it’s next for me!
