    The look of betrayal on my son’s face as he put a heaping bite of it into his mouth was hilariously heartbreaking. So I tried it. He was right. This wildly popular dip is made by blending canned white beans and chocolate chips, among other unlikely ingredients. The idea is to create a healthy dip that supposedly tastes like cookie dough.

— This summer I had the misfortune to encounter the internet culinary sensation known as cookie dough dip.

It was at a potluck party and folks were raving about this creation, which until then I’d been ignorant of. Being fans of all things cookie dough – not to mention feeling a fair degree of affection for all manner of dips – my son and I were eager to try this seemingly miraculous blend of two of nature’s most wonderful food products.

It doesn’t. It’s not cute. It’s not tasty. It’s not coy. And it’s certainly not good.

Much as I love hummus, I do not love hummus that pretends to be cookie dough. Nor do I want my cookie dough spiked with pureed beans. Call me crazy.
