    It should not be debatable that a 69¢ cup of blue cheese dressing, no matter how "filled up" it is, is more valuable than a 69¢ cup of ranch dressing, even filled to the brim, and even if you know how much it would cost, in advance.

    However, I'm sure some will want to debate this. So, go ahead.

    No debate from me. Blue cheese wins, hands down.
     
  3. Blue cheese, no question. Bonus points for lots of blue cheese chunks and if it's not sweet.

    Ugh. I was just entering dressings into inventory today so I could have calculated out just how much a 2 fl oz souffle cup of each actually costs.

    Maybe if I get ambitious enough I'll log back in and look.

    For those of us who hate dipping into chunky dressings, how come they've never made a blue cheese dressing without the chunks?

    I think they have - I recall buying a bottle of such dreck years ago. Some bottled gloop, don't recall the brand. Who knows if it is still made. Still, probably better than Ranch :p

    Blue cheese goes with certain things, like wedge salads. But I would not pay even $0.01 for a cup of it.

    How much do they weigh, what is ratio of blue cheese to dressing, how many ranches does it take to make the ranch dressing and are those US, Canadian or Australian cents? I mean, seriously, how can we have a debate without all of the relevant facts? [​IMG]

    I think you miss the point. As ranch dressing essentially has no socially redeeming value, it doesn't matter. As far as the currency, each cent is approximately worth the same these days.

    It's my post (and party) and I'll cry if I want to, cry if I want to, over spilt milk, and a broken bottle of ranch dressing, the force of my tears hopefully powerful enough to wash it all far far away.

    ...You would cry too if it happened to you

    Nobody knows where my Johnny has gone
    Judy left the same time
    Why was he holding her hand
    When he's supposed to be mine

    It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
    Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
    You would cry too if it happened to you

    Playin' my records, keep dancin' all night
    Leave me alone for a while
    'Till Johnny's dancin' with me
    I've got no reason to smile

    It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
    Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
    You would cry too if it happened to you

    ------ LEAD BREAK ------

    Judy and Johnny just walked through the door
    Like a queen with her king
    Oh what a birthday surprise
    Judy's wearin' his ring

    It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
    Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
    You would cry too if it happened to you

    Au contraire, much as O negative is the universal blood donor (a type-specific match is preferred, but O- is always acceptable), ranch dressing is the universal dip.

    Buffalo wings? Blue cheese is traditional, but ranch works too.
    Mozzarella sticks? Marinara is ideal, but ranch works too.
    Onion rings? Thousand island or ketchup, but ranch works too.
    Potato skins? Sour cream please, but ranch works too.

    Well, ok, I'll admit that based upon your premise, ranch can keep you alive in the case of an emergency, but it doesn't mean it is any good or good for you.
