This week, we review Simple Truth Buffalo Cauliflower Dip. Here's what we thought of Krogers' store brand vegan cauliflower dip.
Simple Truth Buffalo Cauliflower Dip review
Simple Truth Buffalo Cauliflower Dip is a creamy, veggie-based Buffalo dip. If you've ever had Good Food Buffalo Dip, it reminds me a bit of that, but not as thick. They must use a different almonds-to-veggies ratio.
Actually! I first had that Good Food Buffalo Dip at a party and couldn't find it at the store, which is what prompted me to make my own buffalo almond dip recipe.
I am a big fan of Simple Truth Buffalo Cauliflower Dip! I loved the creamy texture and the tangy-spicy flavor. It was great with pita chips, bagel chips, and Ruffles.
It would have been lovely with celery for dipping, too, for a Buffalo wing-type experience.
Dave really liked this dip, as well. He ate it exclusively on Ruffles, because that man knows how to live.
He did mention that he noticed a slightly relishy taste to it, which I didn't notice. We tried to nail down the flavor he was talking about without a ton of success. Maybe the vinegar from the Buffalo sauce mixed with the sweetness from the carrots in the dip caused that experience for him?
Relishy taste aside, though, he still really liked it.
The ingredients list for this is pretty simple! According to Kroger's website as of this writing, it contains:
Cauliflower, Red Bell Peppers, Carrots, Hot Sauce (Red Cayenne Peppers, Distilled Vinegar, Salt, Granulated Garlic), Almonds, Almond Butter, Lime Juice, Red Onions, Water, Garlic, Parsley, Sea Salt, Xanthan Gum
Vegan food takes a lot of flack for being very processed, and this is an example of how it doesn't have to be. Just like with any other food, you just have to keep an eye on ingredients labels if that's a concern for you.
