8. 1 gram/serving (two TBSP)

It’s worth noting that ranch dressing isn’t necessarily that much healthier than actual frosting. Pillsbury’s Creamy Supreme vanilla frosting has 140 calories and 5 grams of fat per 2-tablespoon serving, while Kraft’s Classic Ranch Dressing has 110 calories and 11 grams of fat for the same serving size.

They still see and taste salad vegetables.

This attempt to get kids to eat salad reminds me of a product from the 70s: I hate peas/broccoli/carrots which were pureed vegetables hidden as French fries.

9. Sure you can.

through clever advertising and lying you can convince many of them, and their parents, that they're eating real food.

6. The whole idea is creepy.

Marketing and poor parental guidance result in unhealthy, sugar-addled people who need to be tricked into eating salad dressing. Anything to sell more processed shit.

7. This is not a joke! And it gets worse...

https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2019/06/12/krafts-salad-frosting-is-made-with-ranch-dressing-parents-deception

To get hold of the “frosting,” Kraft is calling on parents to share the “best” lies they’ve told their kids, using the hashtag #LieLikeAParent on Twitter. “Lies that receive the most likes and adhere to the contest theme and originality will have the chance to win Salad ‘Frosting!’ ” Kraft said. The company will reward 1,500 winners and send them a free sample of the “frosting.”
