This page contains reviews of products other than the Ideal Protein products. These are my opinions after having tried the products.
Walden Farms Thousand Island Dressing – Will do if there is absolutely nothing else to put on a salad. The first hit on my tongue seemed to taste OK but then a different flavor emerges that isn’t so pleasant.
Molly McButter Natural Cheese Flavor Sprinkles – I decided that I didn’t care for these or their cousin Land O’ Lakes Cheddar Sprinkles (pictured below). They don’t really add flavor to the omelets and they certainly don’t have any creamy cheese texture to them so why bother. Especially since they both contain 1 gram of carbs per teaspoon of product. See blog post 01/19/2012 for further explanation.
Fiesta Fresh Salsa – This stuff is the greatest fresh salsa I have ever eaten next to homemade! Nice chunks of tomato, onion & pepper. I get the hot version but it also comes in a milder version. Unfortunately it is made in Vinton, Iowa and if you don’t live here in Iowa you might not be able to get it. Sorry 😦 Here is a picture of the container just in case you run across something similar.
Walden Farms Marshmallow Dip – Really good in small doses. Don’t take a big bite of this as you will end up with that funny aftertaste some of the other products have. But I spread a little on my chocolate pancakes and it was fantastic! YUM!!! My HyVee grocery store carries some Walden Farms products but here is a link to the Walden Farms website in case you can’t find this stuff where you do your shopping.
Walden Farms Bacon Ranch Dressing – Finally, I found a dressing that satisfies that need for a creamy dressing for my salads! I like it best out of all the dressings I have tried. DO NOT expect it to taste like a full-fat version or even a low-fat version that has sugar in it. But it is better than most of the other dressings I tried.
MIO – I especially like the three flavors below, Berry-Pomegranate, Orange-Tangerine and Fruit Punch. But it also comes in Mango-Peach, Peach Tea and Strawberry-Watermelon. There may be other flavors but these are the ones I am familiar with. It also comes in an energy form that contains caffeine but anytime we drink caffeine we need to drink the same amount in extra water so be aware of that. I especially like Mio mixed with sparkling water. It doesn’t take much at all to flavor the water a little bit and I really like the fizz.
Mrs. Dash – These are the best spices to add to the soups to take that “I just came from a pouch” taste away. Just a couple of shakes and it helps to add a fresher flavor to them. I use the Onion & Herb and the Garlic & Herb the most.
Torani Sugar Free Syrup – Yum! I add these to the drinks & the puddings any time I want to make them taste better. I really like the White Chocolate added to the RTD (Ready to Drink) Vanilla. I have a Hazelnut that I add to the chocolate drink as part of the liquid. I add the Strawberry to the strawberry pudding as part of the liquid for that. I am getting ready to add the coconut to the vanilla pudding. I bought the bigger bottles on-line from Torani…they were here in only a few days.
Celestial Seasonings Herbal Tea – I have one favorite and one that I like enough to continue drinking on a regular basis. The Bengal Spice is absolutely fantastic! It is spicy and sweet and just gives you that satisfied feeling while you are drinking it. The Honey Vanilla Chamomile is good but nearly as flavorful. They have lots of different flavors and a lot of them are caffeine free!
