Marzetti's Buffalo Ranch Veggie-Dip

We had grabbed a veggie platter, you know, the type with carrots, celery, broccoli and cauliflower. We just assumed that the dip inside was a standard ranch, but to our excited surprise, it wasn't.

That's right, Buffalo Ranch. I assume its in honour of the Superbowl? Maybe it's available all the time and I just never realized it. But it does say new on the container.

I searched the Marzetti's website and couldn't find any info. I've had other dips from them and they were decent, so hopefully this one would too.

Lots of ingredients, with hot sauce #3, that's encouraging. But there are a ton of ingredients in the dip . . . what is all that stuff? Is it necessary? Well, the hot sauce is a cayenne based hot sauce, like Frank's.

It looks like regular ranch dip, with a little red tint. Its a thick and creamy dip, so it clings to your veggie crudites, but not so thick that it takes effort to dip.

The taste is clearly ranch, with a little kick from the hot sauce. It is just a hint, but its really good. Very addictive. Both the dip and the veggies are almost gone! Sure, you could get the same result from adding your own hot sauce to plain ranch dip. But hey, if there's plain and then you have to add hot sauce, and there's Buffalo, I would go with the latter. I didn't look for this on the shelves, but if I was looking for a creamy dip for veggies or chips, this would be worth it, if it is there, and its not badly priced. If your looking for that kind of thing. Whatever, it's good. Leave me alone and get your own dip.
