Trader Joe's Mouthwatering Garlic Spread Has A Grip On Reddit

Trader Joe's is the mecca for inventive snacks, pre-made dips, frozen meals, and more that has generated a cult-like following. TJ's plays up seasonal flavors and constantly cranks out new products, drumming up buzz like an artist dropping a new single. Enthusiasts keep a finger on TJ's pulse via its active social media and podcast then flock to stores to be the first to try its newest creations.

The media continually reports on TJ's latest releases, like Bon Appetit, Food Network, BuzzFeed and more, reviewing new products and ranking them among the beloved holy grails — the Mandarin Orange Chicken, Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, and Cauliflower Gnocchi, to name a few. But, it's the Trader Joe's subreddit forum where the most dedicated fans go to discuss their unfiltered opinions on whether TJ's products hit or miss.

One recent Reddit post got a lot of engagement addressing an older, staple product, accumulating comments of Redditors' favorite ways to enjoy the Garlic Spread-Dip.

The Lebanese dip you didn't know you needed

Trader Joe's Garlic Spread-Dip is a take on toum, a staple sauce in Lebanese cuisine made of whipped garlic, lemon juice, oil, and salt. Aside from the intense garlic flavor that'll steer vampires away for days, what makes this dip so special is its beautiful fluffy texture. The emulsification of the garlic and oil creates a glossy, smooth, airy consistency that pairs perfectly with roasted meats and veggies.

TJ's Garlic Spread-Dip mirrors the ingredients and texture of toum that packs punchy flavor into a small, affordable tub. This Reddit post called on fellow TJ's fans to give creative suggestions for their favorite ways to eat the Garlic Spread-Dip.

The top comment recommended pairing with TJ's dill pickle falafel, using a "hefty amount" of the garlic spread, and wrapping in a tortilla with spinach and Campari tomato. Another comment said that they use the spread to make a dupe for the famous Halal Guys white sauce by mixing the spread with mayo, lemon juice, and water (to thin the consistency).

Another commenter says they even put the garlic spread on their avocado toast. Just like there are endless products rotating on the shelves of your local TJ's, there are endless ways to enjoy them, too.
