Sarah Reviews Marzetti Otria Greek Yogurt Veggie Dip

Mmmm. Dip.

I love chips and dip. I love vegetables in dip. To be honest, I would probably eat friend onion dip with a spoon, but that is disgusting so let's just pretend I didn't say that.

Anyway, when my friends at the Clever Girls Collective asked if I would be interested in reviewing the Marzetti Otria Greek Yogurt Veggie dip I jumped at the chance. I mean, having to review veggie dip for work pretty much rules.

It is okay if you are jealous.

The deal was that I would get a coupon for free dip and I would go get some at the store and eat it and write about it and then I would get paid for the review. What actually happened was a great deal more complicated than that.

I take full responsibility.

First I went grocery shopping and like a responsible little blogger I remembered I needed Marzetti Veggie Dip. Unfortunately, I get no cell signal in Wegmans and I forgot to buy the Otria Greek Yogurt kind. I also forgot to present my coupon at check out.

I just bought the regular Marzetti French Onion veggie dip. It was delicious. It was good on carrots and potato chips even though chips are not the intended use. I don't care. It was awesome.

But I felt stupid.

So I went and bought the Marzetti Otria Greek Yogurt. I bought the Spinach Artichoke variety.

This time I forgot to even bring the coupon.

That night my son and husband went camping with the cub scouts and my daughter and I were invited to a girls party next door. At the last minute I realized I was supposed to bring something and I grabbed the dip and a bag of baby carrots. After an hour my daughter threw a fit and we had to leave the party early.

I never even got to taste that dip.

The third time is a charm and not only did I buy the correct dip, but I remembered to bring my coupon. With the planets aligned so well I splurged and bought precut celery and tried the dip as soon as I got home. It was the Garden Herb Ranch and it was very tasty. It was light, but it still had flavor. I was also proud of myself for eating vegetables and dip for lunch instead of my usual bagel sandwich or box of crackers.

There is no method to my madness.

But about the dip...

(best segue ever)

The cool thing about the Otria Greek Yogurt Dips is that they are only 60 calories per serving. Sixty. That is the same as one Tootsie Pop.

Please don't ask how I know that.

Normally when I eat veggie dip I cancel out the vegetable goodness with the dip badness but in this case the dip is low calorie and made with greek yogurt, so is isn't even bad for you. It just tastes like it is.

Again, mmmmm dip.

I was one of the bloggers selected by T. Marzetti Company and Clever Girls Collective to host a Marzetti Otria Greek Yogurt Veggie Dip review. They provided me with product to test and compensation for my time. However, my opinions are entirely my own.
