Trader Joe's Sweet Cannoli Dip Review

Trader Joe's Sweet Cannoli Dip tub

Maybe it's because we'd just gotten home from Boston and had THE BEST cannoli in the North End, but I could not wait to try this Sweet Cannoli Dip from Trader Joe's.

Trader Joe's Sweet Cannoli Dip ingredients

According to Ciao Florentina, traditional cannoli filling is made from sheep's milk ricotta mixed with sugar. Trader Joe's Cannoli Dip has cream cheese as its leading ingredient. Ricotta is third on the list after cream cheese and sugar.

[NOTE: I thought it would be fun to scoop with dip with broken ice cream cones. I do not recommend. The cones shatter, the pieces aren't great sizes for dipping, and it's a mess. Try breadsticks, fruit, or graham crackers.]

Trader Joe's Sweet Cannoli Dip Review

REVIEW (Bridget): Is this a yummy sweet dip? Yes. Does it taste like cannoli filling? No. I can only say that with confidence because of our recent trip to Boston's North End (Little Italy section). The creamy and sweet dip reminded me of a sweet cream cheese spread for bagels. The texture is soft; it's fluffy at first but loosens when stirred. This dip would be lovely served with fresh fruit at a bridal or baby shower. I think for the price, though, you could easily make a version of it at home that yields a larger quantity for a smaller price. 
Overall rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Will I buy it again? Likely not.

Disappointed after purchasing and finding out later it contains bovine gelatin. It was delicious and sweet but no thank.

I did not care for this at all. Too bad I bought two containers.
