"Not bland at all! Perhaps it's because I added dill weed. Anyway, it was delicious and I'll make it again."

"I have made this shrimp cheese dip for years with a few additions. First - I add a tablespoon of horseradish to give it a great kick. I also use more Worcestershire sauce (usually about 1 tablespoon). I chop the shrimp up in a food processor before mixing with the other ingredients. Also, I form it into a round shape before refrigerating. To serve, a put the shrimp on a plate and cover it with seafood sauce. Delicious!"

"This was just okay and somewhat bland. I prefer the Shrimp Cucumber Spread on this site which is similar with more flavor."

"Did not care for this dip at all! It had no real taste, very bland. I kept added 1 tsp hot sauce, and a spicy salt seasoning to get some taste to it. Won't make it again."
