This post is sponsored by Yumi’s Anytime Dips. So, I’m normally completely about doing everything myself and about making everything from scratch, but one thing that might surprise you is that apart from tzatziki I’m pretty hopeless when it comes to dips and spreads and the like. But I’ve noticed that kids love anything they can dip their veggies or crackers into.
I was really glad when I was sent some Yumi’s Anytime Dips to try. They are conveniently packaged in squeeze containers which means less waste and they stay fresh for up to 2 weeks in the container. This is a big plus for me, because I am usually filling the treat section of a yumbox or a tiny sistema container with dip to go to preschool rather than filling a whole bowl with dip! Then there is the “mum lunch” some carrot sticks, cucumber sticks and crackers leftover from making the kids lunch that go in a container to form a pseudo snack that is almost a passable lunch. I haven’t got time to make a dip to go with that, so the Yumi’s Anytime dips are a real lifesaver!
Let’s talk the important stuff: the Yumi’s Anytime Dips are gluten free, preservative free and dairy free, making these great for people with allergies- and kids with allergies! And because of the squeeze pack they are the ultimate in convenience. I’ve told you before how much I dislike a sandwich. Last week I decided (freezer emptying mission) to make a BLT. I squirted a dash of the Seeded Mustard and Honey Aioli on it and it was delicious! The honey mustard aioli was also mixed with a rocket, parmesan and pear salad the other days and was fab!
I’ve used the Roasted Garlic Aioli in lunches as a dip, in some yummy little salmon and cucumber mini sandwiches and also in burgers at dinner time. The Classic Hummus has gone to school in lunches (my daughter loves hummus) and today I’m going to use the Tuna Mousse to fill some really easy sushi- great for this hot weather.
The small squeezable packages can be stored in the fridge door, so they don’t take up much space and are perfect for this time of year with all the entertaining and “just calling in” that seems to be happening! I’ve found the best way to keep track of when they are use by (because two weeks is a while and I am forgetful) is to write the date on the pack when you open it in permanent marker). Mind you, not one of ours has expired before it has been finished, mainly due to the convenience of just squirting a bit on this, just squeezing some into that…
To be honest, you won’t believe how yummy these are until you try them, so I suggest you pop down to Woolies and check them out. They really are the ultimate in convenience and portability- perfect for the party season and for picnics or for just having in the fridge for when people drop by! They are currently on special at Woolies for $4 with a normal price of $4.59 each. I’m going camping next month and I plan on taking some of these with me for the convenience of spicing up basic meals.
