      A great new dip, interesting element of whole pine nuts.

      I tried this out a few weeks ago as I had not seen it before, and it is really nice. It says on the box "A mayonnaise dip with soured cream, pecorino cheese, basil & toasted pine nuts" and that is pretty much it. It comes in a plastic tub, and costs £1.25 for 200g. Which I think is reasonable. I have never had pecorino cheese on it's own, but from eating this dip I think it is one of those pretty stinky cheeses, as this has a very strong cheesy flavour similar to parmesan. You can taste a hint of basil and there are fully sized pine nuts in there, which are nice and they taste great but, if you are dipping tortilla chips or crisps in and you get a couple of nuts on there it can sometimes be a bit of a mouthful. The dip itself is very very thick, which I assume must be the mayonnaise in it, but it's quite difficult to actually dip stuff, as it's so thick, but it's still nice, just more effort than other dips! (My laziness knows no bounds!). It also says on the packet that there is 24.3g of fat per 100g of this so not a healthy dip, but if eaten only on occasion it's fine to indulge sometimes. I really liked this dip, and thought the pine nuts were a really nice touch. Just something to be aware of though if you are dipping crisps into it.
