I really like the bottle this ranch dressing comes in a lot. It's plastic, has a solid "top" so you can rest it top down and have all the dressing be ready to easily pour out. Also, it's squeezable so you can squish the ranch dressing out quite handily without any problem.
I hate wasting food. It bugs me when you have to try to fight with a container to get the last of the stuff out of it. This is a great design to help ensure you get every last bit of the ranch dressing out.
It tastes really good. It's a mild ranch, so it'll be fine for people with sensitive stomachs. If you like things more spicy, it's easy to add in garlic or pepper or whatever you are interested in to your salad or dip as you make it.
Are there any down sides? Certainly there are some people who say we should stay away from eggs. this is made with egg yolks. However, research really seems to be showing that eating salads is incredibly important for your health - and having small amounts of egg daily can provide a ton of nutrition. The information from the 1960s about "eggs are evil" was provided from a study funded by the cereal lobby :) So I wouldn't worry too much about that end.
It is incredibly important that we all eat a number of servings of salad and veggies every day. That means celery sticks, carrot sticks, broccoli, cauliflower and salads. If ranch dressing helps you reach those levels in a way that has you happy and content, then that is really important. Yes, you can mix it up with Italian dressing, oil-and-vinegar, and other dips. But I feel ranch dressing is a great mix in the dip selection process, and can be enjoyed.
