The hunt for Wishbone has come to a successful end! I'd like to thank Brooke for telling me about www.hometownfavorites.com. I wasn't sure they were really going to have the right stuff, so I only ordered 5 bottles. But sure enough, it was my shit. I immediately made a celebratory salad. Needless to say, it was delicious, with just the right amount of herbs and spices.
Now unfortunately, I'm not a camera guy. I've never owned one. But I wanted to take this funny picture of me with the bottles so I bought one of those throw away cameras. I posed for the picture and the person taking it didn't used the flash. So I ended up with this:
You get the idea. Even through the darkness you can see my delight.
And then this weekend I went down to San Diego with my family and they surprised me with even more Wishbone. Apparently, Cost Plus sells the stuff in GIANT JUGS and now I have 2 of them, plus the 5 bottles. I'm set for the next year at least, which is good because that's when the label says the stuff goes bad. I think after that I'm gonna be screwed because they're not producing anymore, but maybe my incessant letter writing and online campaign will get Wishbone to crack. Let us hope so, my friends.
Here are just some of the other salad dressings that didn't cut it. Not included in this picture are several from Whole Foods which were tested at my office. I think I gave 9 dressings a shot, with all missing the mark. The best option was a mix of Bernsteins and the new Wishbone. These are the ones I had left in my fridge:
The bottle on the far right is the new Wishbone. That yellow ribbon beneath the "Italian" is the evil earmark of "Now Bursting with More Herbs and Spices". Motherfuckers.
Well, until July of 2007, it's salad time!!!
