I’m a huge fan of Tahini anything – especially Trader Joe’s Tahini Dip – so I was really excited to see this new TJ’s product in stores.
I tried it with Trader Joe’s Organic Blue Corn Tortilla Sprouted Amaranth, Quinoa, and Chia Seed Chips, which are my go-to for the Tahini Dip, but unfortunately I didn’t find it appealing at all as a chip dip.
I was expecting a premium version of TJ’s Tahini Dip, but this was really watery and tasted like peanut or almond butter. I know it’s basically “sesame butter” but I didn’t think it would be as watery and un-dip-like as it was.
I’ll definitely give it another try (I bought some falafel to try it with) and report back if it’s better in other dishes. But I definitely won’t be using it as a dip again in the future.

Not a fan of this at all; I agree with Wes. It tasted like peanut butter (but not as good).

This is an excellent product! It is not a dip. It is a healthy product that can be used in dips or sauces or on toast (which is how I use it).
It’s tasty with a little honey; or with sea salt sprinkled over it on toast, maybe with some raisins.
By itself the taste is nothing special; not a particularly great taste, but that can be acquired. That’s why if you just take a spoonful before or after a meal it helps to reduce cravings that add unnecessary calories.
Plus it’s a healthy, nutritionally packed food.
Not that bad
