The name is from my childhood days when anything that wasn't immediately identifiable was called "goop" (and long before Gwynith was born). My local grocery carried a product that had the same ingredients, but then suddenly it went away. So...I was left to make my own version. This is really a cheesy dip!...three cheeses! It is great on crostini and is perfect with crudities.It is fabulous on a hamburger . I have even thrown it on pasta and used it as a "secret sauce" for sandwiches. The hot red pepper flakes give it a bite, so add or subtract the amount you use accordingly. (depending on the heat quotient tolerance of the tasters). Perfect to pass around with some fresh veggies at a cocktail party. —dymnyno
