Lay’s French Onion Dip Review

This is a review of Lay’s Dip, French Onion.

I love french onion dip and consider myself somewhat of a master. My preference is for chilled french onion dips you get in the dairy case at your grocer. One evening we ran out at home and I ran out to the local Walgreens to get some more. They didn’t have any. The small grocer in town didn’t have any. Ugh.

My decision came down to know french onion dip or lowering myself to buy non-refrigerated dip.  I was hard up, so I went with the Lay’s French Onion Dip in the chip aisle. It comes in a glass container and doesn’t need refrigeration. I was not disappointed.


Lay's French Onion Dip Review PhotoI’ll be honest, when you open the glass jar you’ll be surprised to see how it looks. The color is a little off and the consistency is anything but creamy. If you’re someone like me coming from a dairy dip perspective it’s going to look creepy. Still, I was really wanting the dip.


Dipping the chip in I didn’t expect much, but when I tasted it, wow. The dip has a bite and does taste like french onion. You’ll notice the full onion flavor right away. Don’t worry, it isn’t overpowering.

There is a slight, almost spicy after taste that really lingers. It is a good experience and tastes great. Overall, I was surprised how much I enjoyed the dip.


There are two drawbacks about the dip:

  1. The Jar – At first I thought it would be neat using a glass jar, but as the dip falls lower in the jar it becomes very hard to dip your chips. Yes, I know the solution is to spoon it out into another container, but I am lazy.
  2. Storage – There is an expiration date on the outside of the jar, but I am unsure if it refers to before or after it is open. After opening you have to refrigerate, but I don’t know how long you have before expiration.

If you find yourself out of your normal french onion dip options, the Lay’s Drip French Onion is a great choice!
