I made some spinach dip a while ago (cream cheese, mozzarella, spinach, and spices) but then I was sick and didn't eat any.

How long do you think it would stay good?

Mom of a 7 yr old, 4 yr old, and 1 yr old. Wow. How did that happen?

depends on the ingredients and storage. If the base was largely mayonnaise, it wil keep for up to about 10 days (vinegar). if it was a cream cheese/sour cream base, more like a week.

You know the saying " If there's any doubt...throw it out!" Food poisoning sucks!

I never throw anything out unless it smells bad or is moldy... and I have honestly never had food poisoning.

Well, one time when I was about 9 and decided it would be a good idea to taste raw hamburger. That was horrible.

I would expect spinach dip to last a week or so, especially if it is in a sealed container.

I would say 3 or 4 days, but that's me.

Well, in my house, spinach dip only stays good for about 2 hours so I can't help you! :

Me personally I wouldn't keep it past 3 days, but then I'm known to be extremely over-cautious when it comes to food and possible food poisoning.
