MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 16, 2013

I tried both recipes, the original and the recipe from MICHIGANGIRL. The nutritional recipe lacks taste. To me and my family it was very bland and we did not eat all of it. I will not make it again. But the original recipe from Mary Anne McWhirter is definitely worth keeping and I will be making it many times. Everybody loved it. I rated it five stars but would give it more if I could.

Daughter made if for Grandsons 1st B-Day party.. Everyone loved it kids and all. My 7 year old grandson likes nothing and he couldn't get enough of the dip.. We all will be making this recipe on a regular basis. :)
