This is VERY close to the old Armanino Foods product Garlic Zing, which was discontinued years ago. Has real zing, and delicious.

I just tried this by spread it on TJ sourdough crackling wheat bread and then added TJ pesto spread. I have been coughing for over a month and my Drs couldn’t cure me. only wanted to give me loads of anti biotics. No more. This cured me!
THIS DID? Thanks Trader Joes. This is soooo delicious. Lemony zing to it too. Tastes like garlic dip at Zankou chicken too for those that love it like me. Enjoy!

I agree it does taste like Zankou Chicken’s garlic spread!!! Sooo good I’ve been waiting for a local grocery store to carry garlic spread, and Trader Joe’s did it! I love it. Dip some pita bread in it and it’s amazing. Or eat it with one of your favorite mediterranean wraps.

This stuff is AMAZING, if addictive.
The only downside is that you will sweat it out of your pores the next day and your co-workers will follow you around asking if you’ve been eating garlic bread (which is a small price to pay for how delicious this is).
I like to serve this with warmed up gluten free flatbread.

This stuff is amazing and reminds me of the “garlic sauce” we used to get at a now closed Lebanese market in St.Paul, MN. It is delicious just spread on some flatbread or a tortilla and rolled up. I’ve bought 4 containers since finding it at my local TJs in Minneapolis just a month or two ago!! Now bring the Middle Eastern Flatbread to the Midwest, please!

Having this with crackers right now… I’m thinking of putting this with some sauteed zucchini or broccoli on a baked potato! OMG… this stuff is wonderful..

This stuff just debuted at my local TJs. I tried it at the demo station and had to have a tub of my own. So I brought it home and my wife hesitantly tried it. She proceeded to eat a solid 1/4 of the tub with crackers.
For dinner, I decided to make a flatbread “pizza” and toasted a slice of TJs flatbread, smeared it with this Garlic Spread, covered it with mozzarella and sliced grape tomatoes, and topped it with arugula and some balsamic glaze. Amazingly good!
The next day, I made a prosciutto sandwich with TJs Chabata rolls, TJs prosciutto, TJs roasted red peppers, TJs arugula, and, of course, TJs Garlic Spread. It was SO GOOD!!!!!!
After lunch, I went back to TJs for some items we couldn’t find at our Sunday Farmer’s Market, and picked up a second tub of the Garlic Spread. It is Wednesday and the tub is about 75% gone again.
I highly recommend it, and hope TJs doesn’t discontinue it any time soon!

Totally and ridiculously addicted
I would LOVE to know the recipie…
Got the salt, lemon and oil down
….is the garlic sauteed or baked first? (I doubt that it is raw)…. anybody?

It seemed too sour to me like it had gone bad. And the texture was strange. I’m going to try and add to cooked veggies or something to add xtra garlic taste. Other than that I didn’t like it as a dip for crackers! Going to experiment before I throw it away. I’m thinking garlic chicken wings!

This stuff is basically mayo, but garlicified. Amaaaazzzzzing as a sandwich spread or even straight with crackers or veggies as a dip.
Not that bad
A Tomato-less salsa combination of corn, red peppers, and onion.
