You know when you lose your favorite tee shirt and, for weeks, months, or even years you lament that you’ve had to live so long without it? And then one day you find it, wedged behind the washing machine, still as comfortable and doggone perfect as ever?
Now, many of you know that I’ve been campaigning for this forEVER…at least ever since they took it away. I circulated a petition on facebook. I launched a kickstarter. I bent the ear of everyone I knew who had anything to do with Cookes of Dublin. (OK, not those first two, but I did do the third one.) AND IT’S BACK. DREAMS DO COME TRUE. (At least they said it’s coming back…so that’s all I have to go on.)
That sound you hear is the chorus of bacon and cheese angels that I hired to celebrate this news.
This dip is OUT. OF. THIS. WORLD. It’s stunning in its simplicity: strong, melted, Irish cheese is combined with chunks of bacon. When we say “strong Irish cheese,” we mean it. It’s aged. It’s potent. And despite being reduced to stringy, melty goodness, it’s still got a kick.
This is a must do Disney food, friends. Trust us. Whether you get a side of chips or a spoon with which to eat it, just do. You can thank us later (by purchasing a cup of Vintage Bacon and Cheese Dip for us. Actually — make it two.)
Have you dived into this cup of cheese heaven? Let us know!
