Do you enjoy the flavor of caramelized onions and cheese combined? The Costco Good Foods Caramelized Onion & Gruyere Cheese Dip looks like it’d pair well with crackers, chips and raw vegetables, but I had to see for myself.
Today I’m reviewing the Costco Good Foods Caramelized Onion & Gruyere Cheese Dip. I’m always up for trying new dips from Costco!
Some of my favorite dips from Costco are the Costco Fontaine Santé Humm! Caramelized Onion Hummus, the Costco Culinary Treasures Jalapeno Lime Aioli, Costco La Terra Fina Queso Dip with Cheddar, Costco Good Foods Plant Based Queso Style Dip and the Costco Rojo’s Black Bean Six Layer Black Bean Dip.

You can find the dip in the refrigerated section at Costco, near all the other dips, cheese and sausages. The item number is 1632510.
I find this dip super tasty. It’s not super heavy and is light, creamy and spreads really well. The caramelized onion flavor isn’t overpowering but you can definitely taste the savory sweetness that caramelized onions bring.
The caramelized onions also add a bit of crunchy texture to the dip. The gruyere cheese flavor is very mild, I find it more noticeable as an after taste. If you’re an individual who doesn’t like very strong cheeses, the gruyere is not pungent like a parmesan or blue cheese. The gruyere also complements the caramelized onion flavor perfectly.
I love this with crackers for an afternoon snack but also think it would go well with vegetables or plain chips.
For the 680 gram container of dip I paid $9.99 Canadian which isn’t at all unreasonable! This is a big tub of dip!
The best before date on the dip is a month and a half from the date that I purchased it. The dip needs to be kept refrigerated and is best consumed five days to a week from the date it’s opened, despite the best before date being almost a month and a half from the date it’s purchased.
You can be creative with the ways you use this dip and try it in wraps, on a burger or chicken burger, on a sandwich or even in some morning eggs!
Two tablespoons is 60 calories, five grams of fat, three grams of carbohydrates, zero grams of fibre, two grams of sugar and 130 mg of sodium. It’s hard to stick to just two tablespoons!
All of the ingredients are ones I would expect to see in this dip and there doesn’t seem to be anything super unhealthy or harmful! This is not a dairy-free dip but it is gluten-free!
Nutrition: 6/10 (it’s really not that bad if you can stick to two or three tablespoons).
Give it a try!
If you like to try all the different dips from Costco like I do this is not one to miss!
