Walden Farms calorie-free products?
Have any of you tried the Walden Farms calorie-free products?  They make all sorts of things: pancake syrup, ketchup, salad dressing, chocolate syrup, mayo, etc.  I've only tried the pancake syrup, but it was fantastic!  I'm really skeptical anout how these products could possibly be calorie-free.  I understand that the FDA labeling rules allow companies to list the calories as 0 if they are, in fact, less than 5 per serving.  Even if the pancake syrup had 5 calories per serving, the entire bottle would only have 30 calories.  I'm always afraid of things that seem too good to be true.  Thoughts???

I have used the salad dressings and I like them. I haven't tried their other products.

Have you checked out Walden Farms website? I've used the chocolate syrup in smoothies and it tastes great. On their website it lists all of the ingredients and nutritional values. They use Spenda (sucralose) for sweetener. I'm a diabetic so I need to watch my carb & sugar intake and I never had any problems with their products as far as my blood glucose going higher than normal.

I love the pancake syrup too. I like to heat the syrup in a pan with some frozen blueberries. I add a pinch of corn starch to thicken it. Make the pancakes seem really rich.

I love the 1000 Island salad dressing. In my area I can only find it at Kroger or Publix.

I enjoy the dressings and the chocolate syrup and dip. The fruit flavored spreads are ok, but it's a little hard to spread, like trying to spread cranberry sauce, but they taste fine.

I did NOT like the peanut butter-ish spread, nasty. They have some dips like onion and such that are..ok...not great.

I find the dressings in my local grocery stores pretty regular. There are some stores that have a very good sugar free/diabetic section and you can find a lot of the Walden Farms stuff there as well.

One thing about the dressings, they have their OWN unique flavors to them because of how they're made to keep them basically calorie free. I enjoy the ranch, but if you have Hidden Valley ranch, THEN compare the Walden Farms ranch, well of course Hidden Valley is thicker and creamier, etc,. etc. Same with all the other flavors. I enjoy many of their products because I am definitely NOT high maintenance....LOL!!

I've tried a couple of their salad dressings--seems like they've eliminated everything but the taste--good stuff!

I just ordered a bunch of stuff from bodybuilder.com, so we'll see. The only thing I've had is the salad dressings and I love it! The dressings are actually cheaper in the grocery store, but this was the cheapest I could find the products on-line. I ordered the caramel sauce, ketchup, and syrup!! Can't wait! I don't know where you live, but County Market is the grocery store where I found the dressings. Bacon Ranch is REALLY YUMMY; Caesar is okay.
