9 Store-Bought Vegan Dips You Need to Try
Grocery aisles are stocked with cheesy vegan sauce, creamy hummus, and tangy tzatziki—ideal to spruce up your appetizer, meal, or snack. Here are nine vegan dips you need in your pantry right now.
Core & Rind—a women-owned brand—makes a Cashew Cheesy Sauce that is available in Bold & Spicy, Rich & Smoky, and Tangy & Sharp. The plant-based, paleo, and keto-friendly condiment is packed with healthy fats from cashews and contains full-flavored spices to kick your mac ‘n’ cheese up a notch. Head over to the chip aisle and grab some today—these jars are shelf-stable.
Queso with a kick! Good Foods provides creamy condiments made with veggies and nuts. The queso-style dip contains only 3 net carbs, no added oils, and pairs well with veggies. Found in the refrigerated section of major retailers, such as Target, this product is a must-try!
Siete is known for its cassava-based grain-free chips, which pair perfectly with their cashew queso sold nationwide in two flavors—Spicy Blanco and Mild Nacho. The brand uses coconut milk powder to provide a thicker consistency, keeping the sauce dairy-free and paleo-friendly.
Trader Joe’s is known for cranking out vegan-friendly items, including Fiesta Cashew Dip. We suggest you warm it up for 30 seconds before mixing into freshly cooked pasta or DIY nachos. Their Dill Pickle Hummus is also a crowd favorite. The tangy flavor adds an unexpected twist to traditional store-bought hummus. The snack, served with creamy vegan cheese and crackers, will elevate your vegan charcuterie board.
Fabalish—a plant-based and allergen-friendly company—offers a must-try Vegan Tzatziki Aquafaba Sauce. The sauce uses aquafaba (chickpea water) to replace the yogurt in the original Greek classic. Pro tip: Drizzle your falafel and roasted veggies with tzatziki for an authentic taste.
The Take It Cheezy Cashew Dip is the perfect condiment for a big ol’ soft pretzel! The cheddary plant-based dip is made with organic cashews and spices to provide a deep, smoky flavor. If you’re looking for spice, indulge in the Hot Mama Cashew Dip as it contains chipotle peppers to turn up the heat!
Bitchin’ Sauce—an almond-based dip—uses simple ingredients like spices, liquid aminos, and nutritional yeast. The dip is higher in protein at 2g per tablespoon, so generously dress your plant-based tacos with our favorite flavor, Chipotle. Select flavors such as Original and Chipotle are sold at Target nationwide—use the store locator on the Bitchin’ Sauce website to find them near you and stock up.
DELIGHTED BY Desserts comes ready to dip, spread, or eat straight from the container. The dessert hummus is a dippable consistency for graham crackers, apples, vegan marshmallows, pretzels, and more. Our favorites include the Edible Brownie Batter, Snickerdoodle Cookie, and Pumpkin Pie (seasonal).
Mother Raw supplies an organic cashew-free alternative that is formulated for those looking for healthier options. The four dip varieties contain cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil and hemp seeds to provide healthy fats.
Mohini, a born and raised vegetarian from Chicago, initially went vegan when faced with a health issue, but stayed vegan for the animals.

An advocate for mental health and lifestyle changes, she has a degree in Health Sciences from DePaul University.
