I use the alredo sauce on tuna fish and also on fresh cook spinach. Is tastes really good to me.

The honey dijon salad dressing is sweet but when used sparingly adds zest to tossed green salads and egg and tuna salads.

I look forward to trying all of them.

I thought I'd jump in here too.

Balsamic: LOVE, use on salad every day.
Bacon Ranch: yummy
Honey Dijon: yuck yuck yuck but an IP friend of mine makes a potato salad with it that I'm willing to try
Coleslaw: YUCK
Marshmallow Cream: this was the weirdest chemical taste and consistency ever
Chocolate Dip: chemical taste, eww.
Chocolate Syrup: richens the puddings nicely
Asian: I like this as a base to stir fry
BBQ: doesn't take like BBQ but is good on shrimp
1000 Island: okay in recipes, yuck on salad
Cesar: I never tried it but my husband did and he said it was yuck and even worse had a horrible allergic reaction to an ingredient (anchovies? not sure...)

Just bought the Sesame Ginger tonight. We'll see how that goes. Overall, it's nice to have the options.

I love the new marinara sauce and I have mainly been using the bleu cheese dressing. I love using the bbq sauce mixed in my lean burger. So good!

Here we go -
Ranch - ok if put on lightly
Thousand Island - perfect for the Big Mac in a bowl
Asian - great for stir frying Shrimp or chicken. I did add LS soy
Chocolate syrup - haven't use yet. I am not a coffee drinker so maybe this
Should go back
Thick and Spicey BBQ - haven't used yet - looking forward to it with some low carb coleslaw I whipped up tonight.

They aren't the greatest but what can you expect from Zero Zero Zero.
I think these will be the only reason I am able to stay OP. I am a big sauce and dressing person.

Gotta try the Bacon Ranch and the alfredo too.

Just tried WF for the first time last week. My taste buds are used to "diet" foods so I actually liked both the Honey Dijon and the 1000 Island. I was surprised - expected them to be much worse! I buy them at my local Harris Teeter for under $4 a bottle.

ok just bought a couple of new WF and here is my opinion on them

Jersey Sweet Onion - I was surprised! I liked this one. Good over steamed Cauliflower I found out. It is a keeper for me

Seseme Ginger - I stir fried some bok choy, mushrooms, and chicken with it also added additional fresh ginger, and soy sauce. It was surprisely really good.

Nope...did that already. Didn't help. It has the consistency of really slimy mousse, and the flavor is off.

Bought a few things today (1) Whipped peanut spread, (2) Thick & Spicy BBQ, and (3) Maple syrup.

Tried the peanut spread, and I can see why people dislike it. I mixed 2 tbsp with a dash of unsweetened Hershey's cocoa and a dash of splenda, and voila! It's like ... I have no clue. Actually, kinda like a choco-peanut pudding. I can handle it. I just need to remind myself hat it is NOT peanut butter.

Tried the Bleu Cheese, not too crazy about it, but ok when mixed with salt and tandoori masala chili pepper powder.

I'm getting used to the Italian dressing.

I forgot to buy the 1000 Island for my BigMac in a bowl, darn! I did make something similar though:
chopped up a whole thing of romaine lettuce, two cups of spinach, 5 oz of cooked ground turkey, 2 tbsp EVOO, salt, tandoori masala powder (or pepper) ... wow was that good!

Tried something new today - not on purpose.

I heated my chicken and wanted to put some BBQ sauce on it - I drizzled some on and thought ...'hmm - this seems a little thin'. Then realized it was WF Pancake syrup. So then I drizzled the REAL WF BBQ sauce and heated it up. It was kind of tasty.

Prior to that - I added some TruVia, liquid smoke and fresh squeezed lemon juice to the BBQ sauce and it was very tasty.

asian - I liked but a little runny
sweet onion - it was good on a salad
Smokey BBQ - loved it
I am a condiment junkie, and love my ketchup, I haven't tried theirs yet as the WF shipments have been late do to all the darn snow. Hoping to get to the store and get peanut butter and the chipolte. And maybe the syrups.

Don't like the WF Peanut Spread? Don't throw it out just yet!!! Try this:

In a blender, mix ...
- Ice & water
- a normal scoop of your chocolate protein powder (IP, alternative Whey protein, Premium Protein, etc.)
- a teaspoon of Hershey's unsweetened cocoa powder to make it more chocolatey
- 1 tbsp preferred sweetener (stevia or splenda)
- AND 2 tbsp of WF Peanut Spread.

You'll be pleasantly surprised

WF salad dressings have not found one yet I like , but the 1000 island sounds interesting and seems like the big sounds good so may have to try it.
The pancake syrup is not to badI sweetened my tea with it the other day and it was pretty good. As well good on the crepes but don't need much it is quite sweet.
The mayonaise was horrible it smells like raw bread dough and tastes worse. Don't think I would by that one again.

WF strawberry syrup is my favorite. I put it in hot chocolate, use as a sauce on puddings or pour over pancake/orange pancakes.

The chocolate syrup adds nothing to chocolate items but it makes a nice swirl to the banana pudding and my favorite application is In The crispy cereal. Cocoa krispies!

The pancake syrup is very good and especially when you turn the omelet into French toast.

The catsup makes a better cocktail sauce with the addition of horseradish than the WF cocktail sauce.

Melt the jams down to a sauce for chicken or fish. My favorites are the orange marmalade with some grated tangerine peel added to it and the raspberry with the addition of chipotle chile powder.

The mayo doesn't have much taste so if you add something to it like dry mustard and scallions you get a nice fauxtato salad sauce or chicken salad spread.

The honey mustard was okay to dip chicken in - but I really don't care for any of the salad dressings.

The peanut butter is absolutely disgusting by itself, but makes a wonderful Thai peanut chicken with the addition of other ingredients like garlic, Ginger,
scallion, soy sauce.

The marinara is good to cut the carbs in half of homemade marinara.

The Alfredo is vile. Maybe it could be used in a sauce to give a cheesy taste while having other flavors around to hide the disgusting feature.

Alfredo-
I actually quite like the alfredo sauce....but I doctor it and don't use it liberally. I will saute chicken stips/chunks, peppers, asparagus, spinach, mushrooms, etc in a little EVOO, garlic, sea salt, pepper, and a little lemon juice. Then I add a 1/2-3/4 C of alfredo sauce (for 3-4 servings). I usually top with a little canned parm (make me feel like I'm eating the old way). I serve over Miracle Noodles for me (linguini for my fiance).

I honestly think the secret of Walden Farms is to not expect it to taste "just like" the original. You can't. You need to find new uses as others have mentioned.....experiment! I love my meatloaf that uses WF Pancake Syrup, mustard, fake brown sugar (just a touch), and low sugar ketchup......in fact, I feed it to my fiance and he doesn't even know the difference!

Walden Farms=Experimentation!
