We're big fans of Hidden Valley Ranch in this Macaroni household. Not only do I love using Hidden Valley Ranch as a salad dressing, but it's also the perfect vehicle to get plenty of healthy veggies into my 4-year-old daughter Sadie, as she delights in dipping baby carrots, celery and other foods she wouldn't normally touch in a big bowl of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing. And of course, both Sadie and I have a fondness for ranch dressing as a dipping sauce for more indulgent foods such as chicken tenders and french fries.
So of course I was intrigued when the folks from Hidden Valley invited me to an event at Pop Burger to introduce their newest product - Hidden Valley for Everything Topping and Dip. Billed as "The New Ketchup," Hidden Valley for Everything keeps the same taste as the traditional Hidden Valley Ranch salad dressing you know and love, but has a creamier, thicker texture that is ideal for use on a wide variety of foods and snacks – from burgers and fries to pizza and chicken wings. And when I say creamier, I'm not joking. This new condiment has all the deliciousness of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing, with the added benefit that its thicker texture makes it much less messy when kids are dipping their french fries, carrots or any other foods into it. The creamier consistency also allows you to use Hidden Valley for Everything as a spread on burgers, chicken sandwiches, tortilla wraps, baked potatoes and pretty much anything else you can think of. Hidden Valley for Everything comes in two flavors - Original Ranch and Salsa Ranch, which provides a nice kick of spice.
