During the holidays our family likes to heat up chili and cheese dips in our Rival Little Dipper crock, and Cheez Whiz was always my product of choice. That is until I started buying a wide variety of the Walmart brand of food products under the “Great Value” name.
Great Value Sensations Original Cheddar Cheese Dip comes in a 16 ounce clear jar, with a blue screw off lid. It is found right next to the Cheez Whiz products on the Walmart shelves. I was attracted to the Great Value Sensations Original Cheddar Cheese Dip because it was cheaper, and I have been so pleased with other Great Value products. They all come with a satisfaction guarantee, so I really had nothing to lose by giving it a try.
This is a processed cheese food, and it tastes like it. Sometimes I prefer these kinds of cheese sauces because they have a smoother texture. It has a nice tang to it, probably from the Worcestershire sauce that is added to the recipe. It contains cheese cultures, as well as garlic, spices, anchovies, tamarind, mustard flour.
If you are going to use Great Value Sensations Original Cheddar Cheese Dip in a kitchen appliance such as the Rival Little Dipper, I would recommend heating it up in the microwave first, then adding it to your miniature crock pot. When the dip is hot, it tastes amazing!
Great Value Sensations Original Cheddar Cheese Dip is also a fun food to warm up and pour over tortilla chips for homemade “Stadium style” nachos. My daycare children really think this is a treat when I serve it to them for their after school snack.
