CLOSED ~ Dean's Dip Dipstakes Review and Giveaway

With Superbowl Sunday coming up on February 7th (my birthday by the way) it's time to start planning what tasty foods you will be serving at your party. When I do a Superbowl party, I like to get a little crazy and make some fancy dishes but I always stick with some basics. I find that there are certain dishes that I have to have because my guests expect them.

One thing they expect is chips and dip. All my parties have chips and dips. Sometimes I make my own dip but most times I buy it already made because it's easier. Plus, there are just some dips out there that are better than mine.

I recently had the opportunity to review Dean's Dip and let me tell you, these dips will be at all my parties from now on. They were delicious. The Dean's Dips I tried were the French Onion and the Guacamole.

Since you all know I am dieting I had to be very careful how much I tasted. I was glad to see that Dean's has lower calorie dips so I grabbed the Lite French Onion. They also had a Lite Ranch and a No Fat French Onion dip. I love the fact that two tablespoons of this dip is only 35 calories and that is perfect for my diet. Plus it has ZERO Trans Fat! WOO!!

We tried our dip with potato chips. I only had a handful and it was delish. I don't get dip on the diet so this was a treat. Even though it was Lite, it was creamy and I couldn't tell the difference between this dip and dip with fat and more calories. The real test was Tom. He is picky about ready made dip and usually avoids it but he loved it! He kept munching on the chips and dip throughout the evening. I finally had to take it away. He gave the dip a BIG thumbs up.

The next day, I tried the guacamole. It was really good as well. I looked at the label and saw that 2 tablespoons of the dip is only 90 calories. Plus, it also has ZERO Trans Fat. YAY! I decided to spice up my lunch veggies with the dip. I dipped some carrots and celery in the guacamole and it was tasty. Tom tasted the dip with Frito's and he gave the guacamole a thumbs up as well.

I am excited to find such a tasty dip that I can serve to my friends and family. Plus they have so many flavors and varieties that you can please any palate. Dean's even has specialty dips and pretzel dips!! I loved it and totally recommend it for your next party or just to have at home to snack on.

And I know you readers love giveaways and contests so head on over to the Dean's Dipstakes website and enter the Dipstakes contest. All you do is vote for your favorite dip and you are entered to win weekly prizes like free dip, a BBQ set, football memorabilia, sporting gear or a home entertainment system!!

And remember if you are looking for tasty treats for your Superbowl Party, try Dean's Dips. They are super tasty and easy. I know I will be serving a few of these at my Superbowl/Birthday party. Yummo!

I want to thank Dean's Dip for the opportunity to try these tasty dips and also for the opportunity for one of my wonderful readers to win a Dean's Dip Prize pack that includes a coupon for dip, a Dip tray and a Stadium Blanket. How awesome is that? So folks, read the rules and enter for your chance to win!!

I haven't seen Dean's Dips around here but will check my Super WallyWorld. They seem to have it all! I have a girlfriend coming for the w/e that I haven't seen for 25 years! Yippee! It will be late nights, yak-yak- and munchies!Hopefully Deans Dips will be among them! ;-)
