Chocolate Chip Day!

So, such a basic item so obviously underrated. I found this piece of info today from  Amelia Robinson …

“Happy Chocolate Chip Cookie Day…. an upstart is hoping to put a new spin on the chocolate chip.Saladshots, a Hollywood, Calif.-based company, is targeting millennials with its chocolate chip-flavored salad dressing.You read correctly: CHOCOLATE CHIP-FLAVORED SALAD DRESSING.The company launched the product yesterday and even has a $25,000 Kickstarter campaign seeking supporters. Donors get a variety of perks.

“Much in the same way Ben & Jerry’s rejuvenated ice cream by adding cookie dough as an ingredient and Chobani added ‘Greek’ to the yogurt category, Saladshots’ delicious premium on-the-go dressings are a refreshing, healthy, and functional alternative to current options on the market today,” Saladshots’ founder Adam Rubin said in a press release.”

sooooooo……what’s your take on this? Do you think a chocolate chip salad dressing is going to get people to eat salad on a more regular basis?

the whole concept makes me shudder. ugh. !!!

    Hi there,

    As the founder of Saladshots, I saw your article, and thought I’d chime in.

    What you need to realize is that we’re capturing the essence of some of the flavors we love the most. An example is Chocolate Chip… It’s not chocolate sauce. It’s a chocolate cranberry balsamic that goes well with kale, brocoli and a range of toppings like nuts, croutons, and raisins. Mac n’ Cheese is a delicious cheesy low fat ranch dressing that is amazing with a range of veggies.

    Sometimes it takes a while to grasp new things, especially when they buck the norm. However, I can assure you our dressings taste amazing, work well with salads, are incredibly healthy, and you can take them with you. Not to mention we do make an awesome Honey Mustard and Ranch dressing for the less adventurous.

    Give us a shout on Kickstarter.com. We want your support! We’re coming to stores later this year.
