Frequently Asked Questions

What Do You Dip In A Cream Cheese Dip?

What you dip in a cream cheese dip purely depends on the type of cream cheese dip you have made.

If it’s savory, you’ll usually go for something along the lines of baby carrots, grape tomatoes, fresh broccoli, fresh cauliflower, fresh snap peas, and sliced bell pepper.

You can also dip Ritz crackers, multigrain crackers, pretzels, or the most popular choice, tortilla chips.

Is Cream Cheese Good For You?

Though it isn’t considered a healthy food in excess quantities, cream cheese does have some benefits in moderation.

It is a great source of vitamin A, it is surprisingly low in lactose, and it’s a great source of antioxidants.

How Many Days Does Cream Cheese Dip Last?

You can usually make cream cheese dips that last about 3 to 4 days, but this is only if they are refrigerated.

You will need to check the cream cheese dip every day and you shouldn’t keep it any more than 4 days. If it’s been in your fridge for longer than 4 days, it’s in your best interest to throw it away.

It also depends on what ingredients you use for your cream cheese dip, so use that as a guideline too.

Why Isn’t My Cream Cheese Melting?

In order for your cream cheese to melt properly, you need to keep it at a low temperature. If you cook it at a high temperature, it will start to curdle, and then it won’t melt properly.


Cream cheese is one of those types of foods that can go with pretty much anything. It works as both a savory and sweet ingredient, so you can really have fun and experiment with it.

Try some of the dips we’ve included in this list today and see which one is your favorite.
