Question Walden Farms Product Reviews

I am very curious about the walden farms products but wanted to hear from some of you who have tried them. I know that everyone has different tastes but I want to know what you guys think.

Anyone care to give some feedback? What products do you like? Any that are just plain nasty?

Does anyone know of any online sites that sell the WF products? Out of the 3 major grocery stores by me, only 1 carries a limited quantity of the salad dressings.

so far- i can doctor the creamy bacon dressing until i like it. the blue cheese dip is good on celery. the bbq sauce is good! the peanut butter is gag-inducing. I've got some ranch dressing and some ketchup that i haven't tried yet. i'll keep you posted!

I am usually pretty flexible on stuff where calorie counts are concerned. A couple of years ago I bought some of their products. I honestly thought each and every one of them was horrific. Maybe they have improved though. To control calories, I will usually dilute things with skim milk or water to lower the calorie count.

I bought about six different dressings plus the bbq sauce. I kept only the bbq sauce. I thought the rest were terrible. I make my own dressing every week and carry it with my lunch in a little plastic container inside my salad bowl. Le$$on learned.

I always thought all of them were gross- until I tried this recipe.. It actually tastes amazing- just like a big mac.. weirdly enough, the dressing on plain lettuce is not that great though! PS- you can buy them at www.netrition.com ... they even ship internationally! My order got to me in Australia in 3 days!

Big Mac in a Bowl
1/2 pound raw ground beef, about 5 1/2 ounces cooked weight or 153 grams cooked *
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 teaspoon minced dry onions
46 grams dill pickle slices or 2 dill spears, chopped, about 1 5/8 ounces
2 tablespoons WF Thousand Island Dressing
1 1/2 ounces iceberg lettuce, shredded
Brown the ground beef, drain off any fat, season with salt and pepper.. Meanwhile, soak the dry onions in a little water to rehydrate them. Put the meat in a large salad bowl and add the remaining ingredients. Toss and eat at once.

PPS- this isn't my recipe, I grabbed it off the recipe thread!

honey mustard - weird, but tastes ok on hard boiled eggs (like egg salad or deviled eggs).

bacon ranch - i really really like this one. i think it makes all of my salads taste awesome.

raspberry vinaigrette - kind of weird, but ok on salad if not too much is used.

caramel syrup - smells just like caramel, but has a chemical-y aftertaste. really good in IP vanilla pudding and ok in coffee.

chocolate syrup - i haven't found a good way to use this yet. another chemical-y taste.

peanut spread - tastes like poison in a jar alone, but good for cooking. i made a pretty good pad thai with peanut spread and miracle noodles and some vegetables. some people also like it in the IP chocolate pudding, but i haven't tried it yet.

Pancake syrup - I thought this was not bad I put a little in my vanilla pudding

Blueberry pancake syrup - tasted kind of weird again use it in my puddings

Thousand Island Dressing - I actually enjoy this on a "fake" rueben. I add a touch of dill relish to it and it is fab

Creamy Bacon - Another one of my fav's right over cauliflower

Coleslaw dressing - great when you add shredded red cabbage over your salad

Caramel Dip - was ok use it again in pudding. Too me way too sweet

Marshmallow Dip - I have no idea why it is named this because in no way did I feel it tasted like Marshmallow.

Blueberry and Strawberry fruit spread - honestly I did not care for either. flavors tasted off and texture was not right either.

BBQ Sauce - ok

Asian Dressing/Marinade
- one of my favourites. Really good in a stir-fry

Maple Syrup - very good. Bought it yesterday to use in a glaze for pork ribs (see recipe thread). Delicious results.

Thousand Island Dressing - as somebody else said, this is very good in the Big Mac in a Bowl.

Chocolate Syrup - not much of a chocolate flavour to me.

I have decided not to buy any more because every one I've tried has an underlying phony taste that I cannot stand! I have tried:

Ceasar dsg -yuck
blue cheese -yuck
Creamy Italian -yuck
Ranch -triple yuck
Asian -even in stir fry it has that underlying yucky taste
Caramel -hubby likes a bit in his pudding (way too sweet for me), tastes like butterscotch to me.
Chocolate sauce -also puts a tad in his pudding, VERY sweet

Friends of ours said the marinara is ok.

Ranch - yuck
Italian - yuck on a salad, although I did use it to cook some chicken and it was OK
Bacon Ranch - my husband likes it but I haven't tried it
French - OK on a salad

Couldn't find the maple syrup to make the pork ribs recipe someone posted yesterday so I bought the thick and spicy BBQ instead.

Thousand Island - O.K. - I like to add horseradish to this - it makes it a great sauce for boiled shrimp, boiled crawfish.
Ketsup - O.K. also add horseradish and lemon juice to this for cocktail sauce.
Everything else I've tried, I've thrown away. Prefer to make my own dressings.

The thick and spicy BBQ is eatable, but still kind of blah. I shouldn't expect much from something that has water as the first listed ingredient.
