I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the right answer. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I find an anything. You should email the people at Nutrisystem as they probably could answer your Nutrisystem question..
Yum! I haven't tried their carmel dip, but love the chocolate syrup. I freeze half a banana and then dip it in the chocolate syrup, put it back in the freezer for a couple of hours, and it is so good! Some people even roll theirs in nuts for their fat serving. I don't know how Walden Farms does it either, but I'm glad that they do!..
I barely dip the very tip of a slice into it..
I only eat four slices..
At the most, I might be taking in one teaspoonful per day..
I don't know why but I have a terrible time getting my computer to go to the final steps of copying recipes..
Would you please send me a few of any great dish?.
I don't see anywhere on the Walden Farms site or in the literature that says the calorie count over the serving size like I do with Splenda or ICBINB..
I'm tempted to write to them. It could be that there really aren't any calories and just additional sodium. My friend is a chemist and works for a food company that makes flavorings and I'm tempted to ask him if he can find out. I'm wondering what the base is that they use...
Ava: Great Idea! With summer here and all the "county fairs" happening, that is a great way to get that Carmel Apple craving out of the way!.
Thanks for sharing!!!..
Swedish8Fish a year or so another member (naomi, ieathealthy) DID write to Walden Farms about just that question I don't remember what she posted about the dips, but DO remember that the salad dressings were about 35-50 calories per BOTTLE - kewl no?.
Her post is on the Old Recipe Board - perhaps a search will find it - I'll try and post link IF I can find it.....
Or maybe she's around and can repost for us.... hemmm hmmm hmmm - naomi, ya here???.
YAY found the post here's a response FROM walden farms about their salad dressings don't drink the bottle, but it's ok to have more than "listed" serving size - lol....
GrayLady you rock - found the Walden Farms post from Naomi:.

Here....I did some research for you...and alas, everything has calories! I recall a story about someone eating a whole bottle of I Can't Believe it's not butter, and it had over 900 calories in it!.
Therefore, it is only 'zero' calories by following the recommended serving size...and even then, there can be trace calories..
Here is the info on Walden Farms products that I found:.
This came from Walden Farms:.
ACCORDING TO US GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS, IF A PRODUCT HAS LESS THAT 5 CALORIES PER SERVING-IT IS CONSIDERED ZERO.THE GOVERNMENT CONSIDERS THIS.
TO BE A "TRIVAL AMOUNT"..
THESE ARE GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS. WE DID NOT MAKE THESE UP BUT ABIDE BY THEM 100%.
ALL OF OUR DRESSINGS HAVE "TRACE" CALORIES. BY THAT WE MEAN THEY HAVE LESS THAN THE 5 CALORIES ALLOWED BY LAW..
MANY OF OUR INGREDIENTS DO HAVE SOME CALORIC CONTENT, BUT FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU TAKE 5-10 LBS OF EGG YOLK AND ADD IT TO A 4000 LB BATCH AND THEN CALCULATE THE CALORIC CONTENT OF A ONE OUNCE SERVING-YOU CAN SEE THE.
NEGLIGIBLE CALORIE COUNT..
AN ENTIRE BOTTLE OF OUR PRODUCT CONTAINS ABOUT 30-35 CALORIES.(DEPENDING UPON THE FLAVOR)..
IN FACT, YOU WILL BURN MORE CALORIES IN DIGESTING THE PRODUCT, THAN THE PRODUCT ACTUALLY HAS, THEREFORE YOU WILL HAVE A NEGATIVE EFFECT AND YOU COULD ACTUALLY LOSE WEIGHT..
WE AT WALDEN FARMS, PRIDE OURSELVES ON THE QUALITY OF OUR PRODUCTS AND ARE ALWAYS OPEN TO QUESTIONS AND COMMENTS FROM OUR CUSTOMERS. FEEL FREE TO CALL US TOLL FREE AT 1800-229-1706 AT ANY TIME FOR MORE INFORMATION..

The carbohydrate count is similar to the fat and calorie content rules and regulation. Less than .5 g per serving is the regulations..
Our dressings fall into this category and an entire bottle has less the 5g of carbs..
Walden Farms, Inc..
However, here are some ingredients:.
Chocolate Syrup, 2 Tbsp Serving Size, 12 Servings.

From an ad at the Low Carb Zone WALDEN FARMS SALAD DRESSINGS:.

So...mostly water and spices, and they are probably right in their estimate of calories per bottle.....
Hope this was helpful,.
LOL - we played tag team - you got there faster than me and I knew WHEN the thing was posted..
I love all the Walden Farms products but the caramel is probably my least favorite. It's really a matter of taste though, some love it, some may not..
It is EXTREMELY sweet and to me it tastes more like butterscotch than caramel. A little can go a long way. No so with the chocolate..
Like someone else recommended, and sorry I can remember who it was- use it with apples that are a little on the sour side. And use very little...
Ya know what else the Caramel Dip is good with??? PEARS - just a tiny bit of the dip (to get the hint of caramel/butterscotch taste, but avoid the phoney taste you get with too much) I mix chopped pears & cottage cheese and just a teaspoon of the dip - very nice....
That sounds so good and I do happen to have some pears! Thanks!.
I was going to try a little experimenting with the caramel. I know it'll taste really good on something. I was wondering about baked apples?..
Prolly I usually chop apples up and nuke with some sugar free davinci or torani syrup (have a bunch of different flavors, so I "play") until the apples cook and absorb the syrup, then mix with yogurt.
But I'd bet that a small amount of the WF caramel WOULD do nicely on baked apple ..
I saved my strawberries from my snack and melted my already melted chocolates and dipped the strawberries in them as someone mentioned, it was to die for. I love reading all of your suggestions...
You are so pretty..
Don't let anyone ever discourage you..
LOL, I thought about the caramel apples at the fair when I ate mine..
Guess there is a little girl in all of us...
You are the sweetest!! I am so happy for you with all of your success - Onederland is the best place to be! Keep up the great work! You deserve it!..
