Walden Farms Calorie Free Chocolate, Caramel and Marshmallow Dips Review

Walden Farms Calorie Free Caramel DipWalden Farms products are marketed as calorie free, sugar free, fat free, gluten free and there is a long list of 0's on the nutrition label. They have a LOT of products including jams, syrup, peanut butter, BBQ sauce, salad dressing, and many other sauces (including marinara!). The Caramel Dip has already been reviewed - and it was not a favorable review - but the lure of calorie free dips was too strong, so I ignored prior warnings and tried the Walden Farms Chocolate Dip, Caramel Dip, and Marshmallow Dip.

All three dips I tried tasted weird, tangy, chemically, and way too artificially sweet. They all had the same gummy texture, although I think the Caramel dip was tolerable in small amounts. The chocolate dip was revolting! Now this stuff isn't cheap. Each 12 ounce container was over $5.00! Still, the thought of calorie free chocolate made me spend a ridiculous amount of money on these sweets - a decision I intensely regret and hope to save you from.

The ingredients list for the Chocolate is: Triple filtered purified water, defatted cocoa powder, caramel color, natural flavors, cellulose gum, sucralose, salt, potassium sorbate (to preserve freshness), vanilla flavor, lactic acid, xanthan gum. After being puzzled by the fact that there is actual cocoa powder in this dip and they were still labeling it as calorie free, I did some research. Walden Farms states that all of their products contain trace calories, meaning that there is under 5 calories per serving, so by law they are still able to market their goods as calorie free.

I threw all three containers out. The products gave me a terrible stomach ache! Needless to say I won't be buying this again.
