Box says: This is a perfect blend of artichoke hearts, spinach and Swiss and parmesan cheeses great for entertaining a crowd or dinner for the family. You may have even seen dips like this elsewhere, but we think ours outdoes them all.

Our thoughts: The box says it is a “perfect blend.” While the blended flavors meld well together, there is more cheese than spinach and artichoke. The creamy texture keeps you coming back for more, but this dip needs to find more veggies.
