Thumbs down Walden Farms 0cal dressings...

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They basically taste like something you'd pick up at the dollar store that were outdated.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.

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

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!

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.
