I bought it, tries a lil bit with my apple, and though it is not so much like chocloate that I could eat the whole jar, but it is enough like real chocolate that it was wonderful with my apple! Need reply ASAP, cause Im gonna have to take this stuff to the dumpster if I cant have it LOL

I don't know about the chocolate dip, but their dressings are MRC approved. I actually use them as condiments on my bison or elk burgers. Love them!

What section of the store did you find the chocolate dip...sounds yummy!

08-24-2010, 09:27 PM
I found it in the diet section, by the atkins bars and such

I asked about the syrup this week and without hesitation was told it wasn't ok, only the dressings. I don't understand what the difference is if the product is used sparingly. I did a little searching through past posts and it seems to be hit and miss on being acceptable depending on which location you go to. I figure, if others are using the Walden Farm products and still loosing and there isn't really anything in them, then I'd try them and see how it effects me.

I have been having about a teaspoon with my fruit daily, and it does not seem to be affecting my weight loss

I haven't tried the chocolate dip, but there is also a marshmallow dip, is it legal? I am thinking it would be great on fruit as well, and maybe a little in the hot chocolate. YUMM! I need some YUMM on my diet.:carrot:

I found the walden farms products in the diebetic/diet section of Kroger. They have all kinds of walden farms products, anything from syrup, ketchup, dips, dressings, marinara, alfredo sauce....

I have tried the the ranch salad dressing, not so good, but it works as a marinade for chicken. and the BBQ sauce is just not for me. Havent tried the marshmellow stuff, maybe that will be next LOL

The marshmallow dip is good with peaches. I don't know that it is legal on MRC.

The Russian Dressing is a great marinade for chicken and fish - w/some dill, sea salt and pepper.

The only product I've tried so far is the Thousand Island dressing. I made a turkey buger, topped with saurkraut, a slice of swiss cheese and dressed with the dressing. Great "mock reuben". Not sure if it's OP but it sure tasted good and I've lost 4# this week. So I can't say it hurt my loss at all.

the Walden Farms products are awesome! I'm not the biggest fan of the vanilla shakes, so I've used the chocolate sauce with them and add a packet of splenda=GREAT! It's not too sweet and it almost tastes more chocolately when mixed with vanilla. I would say if the products are comparable with the HNS or dressings, they are OK. Carbs, sugar, fat, calories......if those aren't there-what's the harm?

Oh I am for sure trying the reuben !!! I miss those!!! Im steadily loosing too, hopefully it continues, but ya know I look at it this way, even if Its NOT on plan, it is a way better food choice then I would have made a month ago. and its ok if I dont loose 6 pounds a week (according to my cardiologist, who is following me while I do this - its not real healthy to do that anyway, not for any significant length of time). I want to be able to keep the weight off, so for me anyway, I refuse to beat myself up if something is not totally on plan, if that means I loose a bit slower, well thats ok, cause it also means Im really really paying attention to what I am eating and how if affects me.

I was so excited to hear Kroger had these so I ran out on my lunch hour yesterday to check it out. If you compare the nutrition labels from the dressings and the dessert toppings the only difference is the amount of sodium. I was so excited I got the caramel too! I mixed the 3 (choc, marsh & caramel) together and dipped my strawberries...OMG!!!! And a little goes a long way!
They have marinara and alfredo sauce too. My dad is diabetic and lives with us so I am more excited about having more options for him too!!

tried the reuben yesterday! OMG so good!! thanks for that great option!!!

Glad you liked it. It's going in my list of "regulars". My 20 yr old even liked it! Now if only I can find the products here in Nebraska I'd be a happy camper. I can find the dressings and the syrups but not anything else. :(

Kroger here has a good selection, but they have a website with way more items then what kroger has. I may have to do some ordering! LOL

The Triple Zero Walden Farms are on Ideal Protein approved list. My coach sells the dips, syrups, sauces, and dressings. So far, my favorites are the carmel dip and the bleu cheese dressing. The bleu chees was especially good with chicken cooked with Franks hot sauce, also approved. It is a great half-time meal for football games. I can't feel deprived while eating buffalo chicken with a big spinach salad!

I assume we can have them, whenever I have talked about them at my center nobody has told me different. They have mayonnaise that is really good! I put it with some tuna. I also love the regular syrup, I haven't tried the blueberry or the strawberry syrup but the regular keeps me satisfied. The ketchup I heard was gross but heinz makes a ketchup that is reduced sugar and I asked my center if I could have it because it is within the recommendations for condiments and they said yes. I know it is cooked tomatoes but a little helps sometimes to get me to eat something and I've never had weight gain from it. Sometimes it is found in the health section or regular ketchup section if anyone is wondering. My mom tried the peanut butter and she said it was disgusting and she threw it out. Tried the alfredo sauce but kind of has a gross chemically taste I think. I'll have to try that chocolate one! They have a strawberry jam one too, I wonder if that is good?

I have always gotten mine at Hyvee in the health section here in Nebraska
