How Trader Joe's Successfully Pulled Off Its Vegan Buffalo Dip
By Stacie Adams
Buffalo chicken wings are standard at a tailgate party, and they eventually evolved into Buffalo chicken dip, which calls for hot sauce, ranch dressing, blue cheese, cream cheese, and chicken. The dip pairs well with chips, crackers, and veggies, and although it may seem like it can't have a vegan counterpart, Trader Joe's says otherwise.
According to Trader Joe's vegan Buffalo-style dip page, this tasty and pleasantly textured dip is the product of carefully selected ingredients. The vegan dip features red peppers, carrots, and cauliflower instead of chicken and cheese, and it includes lime juice to balance the spiciness of the cayenne pepper sauce.
In the comments section of a Reddit post about the best new vegan items offered by Trader Joe's, one Redditor notes that they are not vegan but still find the dip "amazing." Additionally, the user describes their husband as a "carnivore" but claims that he also enjoys the dip.
