Costco La Terra Fina Spinach Artichoke & Parmesan Dip Review

Costco always stocks a pretty solid variety of dips, and they seem to rotate through new ones pretty consistently (though often from the same handful of brands). This La Terra Fina Spinach Artichoke & Parmesan Dip & Spread showed up at Costco fairly recently, and I’ve seen it at warehouses in both Canada and the U.S. La Terra Fina is a brand that’s been in Costco consistently for years. Does this dip have the same kind of staying power as some of their other offerings?

Some dips and sauces from Costco that I love are the Stonemill Kitchens Creamy Cranberry Jalapeno Dip, Rojo’s Street Corn Dip, Culinary Treasures Jalapeno Lime Aioli, Kewpie Deep Roasted Sesame Dressing & Marinade, La Terra Fina Queso Dip with Cheddar, Rao’s Marinara Sauce, Good Foods Plant Based Queso Style Dip and the Kevin’s Turkey Gravy.

Location in Store

This is located in the refrigerated deli section at Costco in both Canada and the USA. The item number in Canada is 379903 and the same in the USA.

I’m a big fan of spinach dip, so I was excited to try this. Unfortunately, I ended up being a bit disappointed. I found the dip quite tangy/strong tasting compared to the spinach dips I enjoy. I’m not sure if this is from the Neufchâtel cheese base, the Greek yogurt, the Parmesan or a combination of all of them.

The dip has small chunks of spinach.

I also found the dip fairly salty compared to other spinach dips I’ve had. This might be partly just the tanginess coming through. I found it difficult to separate the two. It I tried really hard to look past the tanginess/saltiness, I could pick up some of the flavors I love in other spinach dips. The textures of the dip are the same as what I’m used to in other spinach dips too.

Overall there’s just something off about this dip to me. I didn’t enjoy it. I don’t know if that’s just my personal preference talking or if it’s just not that good. I’d be curious to know what other people think.

The dip looks promising but I was disappointed.


The dip costs $9.69 in both Canada and the USA! We actually bought this dip in Montana so we paid significantly more for it than if we had just bought it in Canada.

I think the price is reasonable for a really large dip but I do wish Costco sold smaller dips for half the price. I often find myself not being able to finish the massive tubs.

This dip would work with bread, tortilla chips, crackers and vegetables. You could also probably use it in a pasta dish, casserole or even add it to scrambled eggs.

The dip needs to be kept refrigerated and the best-before date is about two and a half weeks from when I purchased it. The container recommends using it up within five days of opening it and states the dip can be served warm or chilled. I tried it both ways,

The dip can’t be frozen and needs to be used within five days of opening.



Two tablespoons contain 50 calories, three and a half grams of fat, 150 milligrams of sodium, two grams of carbohydrates, zero grams of fiber, one gram of sugar and three grams of protein.

That’s actually not that many calories, fat or sodium for two tablespoons!

Nutrition facts.


I like that the ingredients list is pretty simple with mostly ingredients you’d use at home to make a dip. The neufchatel cheese is similar to cream cheese but tangier and softer.

The dip contains milk but is gluten-free as well as free of major allergens like soy, nuts and sesame.

Cost: 7/10

Convenience: 10/10

Nutrition: 5/10 (Not exactly healthy but the nutrition facts for a dip are pretty good).


Walk on by!

I prefer other dips from Costco and wouldn’t buy this again. My go-to spinach dip at Costco is the Fontaine Sante Spinach Dip.

  1. Very good! Not too spicey. Perfect with crackers. I’ll definitely buy this again. The smaller containers are just the right size!

  2. Was looking for this one but they didn’t have it so ended up buying the parmesan artichoke and garlic instead. I’m rather enjoying it. Slightly tangy and super garlicky. Warmed it up a bit and I personally think it’s rather good. I hadn’t really noticed this brand before this year. So was disappointed to see the asterisk of death on the flavour I grabbed because otherwise I would purchase it again!

    • Artichoke parmesan garlic update. Went extra tangy and weird after only being open for a couple days. If you can eat an entire tub the first day or picked one up for a party. I recommend warming up as per instructions. After being open for a couple days even warming it up couldn’t save it.
      Walk on by!

  3. The artichoke and Parmesan dip was VERY disappointing. It actually has a chalky texture to it. The grocery store brands are much better. I’m glad I didn’t pay more than nine dollars and change. It says don’t freeze but I think you could if used within a few days of opening. The product would separate in the freezing process, but just give it a good stir. I’d like to try it in a bit of pasta with some added Parmesan or asiago and see if that works.

  4. i bought this dip a while back at costco in bellingham washington. i do not remember it having any really outstanding flavours, i did like it though. i would like to try the dip you recommended. i do not think i have ever seen it in costco south of the border. by the way it is ok to freeze any leftovers. if it separates at all, stir the liquid back in. with large quantites of products, i have freeze items such as this in portions. i also dehydrate fruits and vegetables both fresh and frozen and also dry products such as muffins and breads. set your oven on warm if you do not have a dehydrator. put items in freezer bags after drying them. cherero. liz

  5. NOT a fan of la terra fina dips. I got major food poisoning from their smoked salmon dip and no surprise, it isn’t available at my local Costco anymore. Gahh…I’m gagging just writing this review! LOL

    • Yikes! I’ve had food poisoning and it sure ain’t “nice”! 🙄 thanks for the heads-up since I’ve been looking for it. I bought some once for a party that never happened so it was eventually thrown out, uneaten. Maybe I dodged a bullet eh?!
