Nutty, Cheesy Condiment

To make its new Blue Cheese Roasted Pecan Dip, private-label retailer Trader Joe’s combines blue cheese crumbles and chopped pecans with cream cheese and sour cream.

Roasting the pecans provides extra flavor, as well as locks in some crunch.

The dip is considered a premium product thanks to the visually appealing crumbles of cheese and decent-sized pieces of pecans.

This perishable, refrigerated savory condiment complements crackers, as well as veggies, and also functions as a sandwich spread.

Sold in 8-ounce tubs, a 2-tablespoon serving contains 110 calories.
