Trader Joe’s Sour Cream Spinach Dip is a mixture of spinach, water chestnuts, and – you guessed it! – sour cream. Keep reading to see if you should grab some!
Back in the Olden Days – also known as the ’80s – my mom would take catering jobs here and there for some extra money. She used to make a spinach dip that was served in a hollowed-out purple cabbage that I thought was super fancy. And even though I hated spinach and water chestnuts, I thought this stuff was delicious.
Trader Joe’s Sour Cream Spinach Dip is just like the good ol’ spinach dip from the ’80s. It has a good amount of spinach and is thick and creamy. And though the ingredients list water chestnuts, I didn’t notice them that much; just an occasional crunch here or there.
My only complaint with this dip is that is tasted pretty bland to me. I was able to save it just by adding a bit of salt but be aware that you might have that issue.
Nutritional Information for Sour Cream Spinach Dip
A serving size is only 2 tablespoons (does anyone actually stop at 2 tablespoons of dip?) and each serving has 80 calories. This is pretty good considering sour cream and mayonnaise are in the top 3 ingredients.
Like all Trader Joe’s products, this dip does not contain artificial flavors, preservatives, or colorings. This product does contain dairy and egg, so be aware of that is those are concerns for you.
Verdict: Recommend (but only if you are prepared to add salt)
I wouldn’t make a special trip to grab this, but it’s ok if you are craving spinach dip and happen to be shopping at Trader Joe’s anyway.

I’m trying to find out if the sour cream spinach tip contains turmeric. I am allergic, and I used to eat it a lot, but don’t want to cause reaction, so I hope you can let me know. “Spices” is not enough information.
I’m not sure. I have always had good luck contacting Trader Joe’s customer service when I’ve had questions. You can reach them at https://www.traderjoes.com/contact-us/product-feedback.
I try Trader Joe’s Spinech dip.
It was very good. I would buy it again.
I was so disappointed in this dip. A little salt helps some. I won’t buy it again.
