Costco Stonemill Kitchens Creamy Cranberry Jalapeno Dip Review

Cranberries and jalapeno peppers aren’t ingredients I would ever think to pair up, so I was intrigued when I spotted this Stonemill Kitchens Creamy Cranberry Jalapeno Dip at my local Costco. When I think of cranberries, I immediately think of Thanksgiving and Christmas, but I don’t normally think of jalapenos as a holiday food! Is this dip more sweet or more savory? What should you serve it with? Will it be out of place at a holiday-themed gathering? I’ve tried to answer all of these questions.

Other dips from Costco I love are the Rojo’s Street Corn Dip, Culinary Treasures Jalapeno Lime Aioli, Fontaine Santé Humm! Caramelized Onion Hummus, Kewpie Deep Roasted Sesame Dressing & Marinade, Good Foods Plant Based Queso Style Dip, La Terra Fina Queso Dip with Cheddar and the Kirkland Signature Organic Chunky Guacamole.

Location in Store

This is located in the refrigerated deli section at Costco near all the other dips and cheeses. The item number is 1752409.

Pretty thick with real chunks of cranberries and jalapenos.

Taste

Wow, this is a unique dip, I’ve never tasted anything quite like it. It actually has a ton of heat and a strong jalapeno flavor. The combination of the jalapeno with sweet cranberry is very interesting and I’m not really sure I like it.

Next time I’d serve these with plain crackers.

The dip has a noticeable slightly tangy cream cheese base. The texture of the dip is smooth and thick with small chunks of real cranberries and jalapenos. I want to like this but I don’t, it’s such a peculiar flavor combination and the cranberry is way too sweet and also too spicy. I admit I don’t like spicy things but even if I did I wouldn’t like this because of how sweet the cranberry is.

Both Sean and I tried this and decided we had no idea what we’d serve it with. The flavor is so sweet and strong that I think it would only go well with some very plain, salty crackers.

Cost

The 879-gram tub of dip costs $11.99 Canadian at Costco. I wish the tub was smaller and less expensive. Unless you’re hosting a big party, this is a lot of dip for one family!

Cranberry and jalapeno is such an interesting flavor combination!

Convenience

The dip needs to be kept refrigerated and the best-before date is only three weeks from the date I purchased it. I probably wouldn’t keep an open container in my fridge for three weeks, I’d toss it at after about ten days maximum.

Ready to eat!

This Stonemill Kitchens Creamy Cranberry Jalapeno Dip is made in the USA. The website recommends serving the dip with vegetables, chips, crackers or pretzels. I could see pretzels and crackers working with the dip but not vegetables.

Nutrition

Calories

Two tablespoons of dip contain 90 calories, six grams of fat, seven grams of carbohydrates, zero grams of fiber, six grams of sugar, one gram of protein and 120 milligrams of sodium.

I can’t see people eating too much of this because it’s so flavorful. Obviously it’s not low in calories or fat but the sugar isn’t as high as I thought it would be!

Ingredients

Just like I thought, cream cheese is the first ingredient. The ingredients list isn’t actually that bad and it’s all things you would use to make a dip like this at home. The only difference between store-bought versus homemade would mostly be the preservatives.

Overall

Walk on by!

I wouldn’t purchase this again, it’s too sweet and the flavor combination is too odd for my liking.

  1. This dip is fantastic. Yes it’s sweet and spicy but a combination that goes very well together. Of course you cannot eat too much of it because it’s very rich and sweet. A dip to be consumed in moderation and goes excellently when served with tortilla chips. If you are worried about not being able to consume an entire container before expiration date, It can be frozen as well. I tried it and it does come out with same consistency as when you serve fresh from the container. I froze in half cup containers. Thaw at room temperature. It’s a beautiful thing. 😍

    • I’m so glad you can freeze it! Thanks for posting this. I love this dip but it would never get consumed before the expiration date so I’m happy to hear that freezing it worked
