Cannoli are a popular bakery favorite, and are also often found on dessert menus everywhere from Italian restaurants to family holiday dinners. And while the crispy pastry shell that the cannoli filling is normally housed in is great, Trader Joe’s is going all in on the sweet, creamy filling.

Trader Joe’s new Sweet Cannoli Dip takes the traditional cannoli concept and flips it into a dessert dip. This dip is made with cream cheese, sour cream, and ricotta with notes of vanilla. The result is a super-rich dip that is sweet and a bit tart, and smooth just like cannoli filling. It can be paired with everything from fresh fruit to cake. But the possibilities are rather endless. It would be delicious with wafers or cookies, but perhaps also spread on a scone or breakfast biscuit, as well. 

TikTok creator The Lavelle Show was so excited to try this dip in a recent video. He paired the dip with waffled butter cookie wafers, and was blown away by the taste and texture, saying it was even better than he expected. The creator found the flavor profile to be somewhat reminiscent of cheesecake — we could totally see that!

The Sweet Cannoli Dip is available now at Trader Joe’s for a price of $3.99, but as a lot of Trader Joe’s items sometimes are limited edition or seasonal, you won’t want to wait to give this one a try.
