I recently bought some Walden Farms 0 calorie products and I think they're definitley something to SKIP!

So far I've tried the caramel.. yuck! It does have a caramely taste but if you dip somethng in it you can't taste it anymore and it tastes basically like sugar.
The Alfredo sauce is the most *disgusting* thing I've tried and I threw it straight in the trash!!! I would never make someone eat that!!!
The bacon dip is ok not so bad but I don't know what to dip in it because veggies dont taste good in it for some reason.
The honey mustard salad dressing is alright, the only thing i'll use.
They basically taste like something you'd pick up at the dollar store that were outdated. Also they are definitley over priced and I will never purchase them again.

Silly me for not reading up on all the bad comments this company has gotten! Lol woops.

I've tried some of the dressings (gag) and their "syrup"--which I'd definitely skip. The one thing that is okay is their spicy barbeque sauce, which vaguely tastes BBQ-ish. :) But, it's not something I've bought since the first bottle I went through. I just use spicy rubs and hot sauce for my meat instead.

Yuck :lol: Most of their products are just masses of chemicals that have been thickened :eek:

Anything that claims to be 0 everything (Calories, Carbs, etc.), I personally would be pretty wary of!

I've never tried them but have always been afraid.. anything that has 0 calories in it and is creamy scares me... hahah.

I went gung-ho for their products when I first discovered them, but I have to agree with you all, most of them taste pretty awful. I do like their BBQ sauce and the caramel dip, but even they're not worth the money to purchase again.

I like the Marshmallow Dip - but it is dip (not fluff), and if you're looking for the real thing, you may be disappointed. But I often mix it with chocolate pudding!

hmmm. Now I am not sure what to do? Should I buy it? Does it have a marshmallowy taste?

DH and I actually like the blue cheese dressing and the blue cheese dip used as a dressing. They do NOT taste like "real" blue cheese dressing, but it gives the "essence" of blue cheese dressing.
I found that by adding a teaspoon of kalamata olive tampenade to 2 tablespoons of the blue cheese dressing, it tastes quite good on salad.
I think the bacon one is gross and I can't use the blue cheese for dipping veggies, only as a salad dressing.
The thousand island and honey mustard as salad dressings taste ok to me as well.
The label talks about using vinegars, water, herbs and spices to keep the calories zero, or *trace calories.

Well, to me it does, but it's been a while since I've had 'real' marshmallows!

I ALMOST bought the bbq sauce and ceasar dressing tonight...but then i decided to check this board first... really not worth it, huh? I looked up their website...not very impressive. didn't really see any bad reviews...but i suppose that's all biased.

anyway...thanks for saving me some dollars!

I think I'll avoid this stuff...

There is a delicious dressing with just 40 cals that you guys should try! Olde Cape Cod Toaster Sesame Ginger. Also low fat and sodium. Yummo.

I've been making a sesame ginger dressing that is pretty low in calories.

3 TBS Rice Wine Vinegar - 60 calories total
1 tsp sesame oil - 45 calories
2 TBS ginger - not sure on calories
1 TBS toasted sesame seeds - 30 calories

so 135 calories total but that's for 2 so about 70 calories or so.

It's pretty good I've had many requests for this one already.

I screwed up this recipe. It's supposed to have a little low sodium soy in it too.

I've been making a sesame ginger dressing that is pretty low in calories.

3 TBS Rice Wine Vinegar - 60 calories total
1 tsp sesame oil - 45 calories
1-2 tsp low sodium soy <10 calories
2 TBS ginger - not sure on calories
1 TBS toasted sesame seeds - 30 calories

so 145 calories total but that's for 2 so about 75 calories or so.

It's pretty good I've had many requests for this one already.

Check the ingredients--most of the dressings really are NOT just a bunch of chemicals like many people assume, and what few chemicals are included are still less than the junk in most regular dressings. I'm happy to use something with a thickener if it means I can avoid HFCS.

I use their pancake syrup--the maple flavor (I think they also make a strawberry an blueberry flavor). I use it instead of honey in recipes, including using it to make my own honey mustard. It is the ONLY no sugar added maple syrup I can find that does NOT have any sugar alcohols. It only uses Splenda, so it doesn't make me sick like sugar alcohols can.
