My parents and grandparents always had a bottle of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing on the dinner table, and now that I'm a wife and mother, so do I!
I've tried other brands, but Hidden Valley remains my hands-down favorite. It's my gold standard of what ranch dressing is supposed to taste like. The thick, creamy consistency is just right, too; not runny like some other brands.
My husband and I particularly like the original version of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing, because it has less sugar and fewer carbohydrates than their equally-yummy Light version; elements that seem to negatively effect my diabetic husband's blood sugar levels more than a higher fat content.
Thanks, Hidden Valley, for years of taste-bud happiness!
