For another queso review I did recently, check out my review for the Costco La Terra Fina Queso Dip. Okay full disclosure here, I am not one to buy a lot of “plant-based” or vegan foods. I have nothing against being vegan or eating plant-based I just myself prefer dairy and meat. However I’m starting to come around and have actually tried a few plant-based foods from Costco recently that I really love! Today I’m reviewing the Good Foods Queso Style Plant Based Dip.


I actually really like this plant based queso style dip. It doesn’t really taste like cheese at all or like queso, so if you’re expecting true queso tasting dip you won’t find it in this. It tastes more like a red pepper flavored dip which is pretty much what it is. In my opinion it has a flavor like if you were to combine sour cream and salsa together with a bit of cheese and then blend it up. The texture isn’t too thick and it’s more on the runny side. It’s not very spicy/hot but has the slightest hint of heat. If you didn’t look at the ingredients you really wouldn’t be able to tell that the first ingredient is cauliflower.

I paid $9.99 Canadian for the 680 gram tub of Good Foods Plant Based Queso Style Dip. Not cheap but most plant based products aren’t.


This goes super well with nacho chips and vegetables it would probably taste great in tacos, burritos or fajitas. The queso needs to be kept refrigerated and the best before date is about a month after I purchased the queso.

This is plant based, dairy free and has “no artificial anything” according to the packaging. Two tablespoons is 45 calories, three grams of fat, 190 mg of sodium, two grams of protein, one gram of sugar and three grams of carbohydrates. The ingredients list is very simple and straight forward.

When I bought this I definitely didn’t think it would be good and thought it looked kind of unappealing but I actually would definitely buy this again. I feel good eating it knowing it’s plant based and full of healthy ingredients.

Taste: 7/10

Cost: 6/10

  1. Just recently found this. Saw a comment about it being discontinued, but it’s not. I have three tubs in my fridge right now! I literally use it in everything that requires a cheesy kind of sauce.

  2. Didn’t find this dip too bad at all. Actually kinda pleasant. For me it was a tad bland however. They can do much better with vegan cheese flavors these days so I’m surprised this company didn’t go that route. It is, however more true to a whole foods product with ingredients everyone can recognize so it does have that to its credit.

    At the current price I find it too expensive for what it is. Costco seems to not be doing too well with some prices these days – I definitely expect better/lower prices. Always good to shop around since for prices, Costco is not the end-all be-all. I only bought this once because I have my own recipie for a similar product which actually tastes much better. It’s based on raw cashews and is about a third of the price.

  3. I am super upset and sad that this has been discontinued! We need these great tasting plant based options! Is there any chance it will come back??

  4. We are not vegans or even vegetarians but occasionally we’ll try plant based, packaged foods & we NEVER like them. But our daughter in law bought it so we tried it and we LOVE it!! She didn’t tell us it was vegan. We thought it was a regular quest dip! It tastes better than any quest dip I’ve had! But how long does it stay good in the fridge after you open it? Anyone know? Thanks!
