Last year, it was big news in our growing community when Hidden Valley Ranch Dairy-Free Dressing was released. And for most customers, it hasn’t disappointed. It was actually a big year for dairy-free ranch. We also saw releases from Newman’s Own, Litehouse, and some fledgling brands. But Hidden Valley Ranch followed Just Ranch’s (RIP) lead with a lower price point and a formula that’s not only dairy-free, but also egg-free, vegan, and more mainstream. It’s been so successful, that they’ve released a second Hidden Valley Plant Powered Ranch variety: Spicy!

More Allergen Notes
The ingredient “nisin preparation” might raise concerns for some investigative dairy-free consumers. It can be fermented with milk, but it can also be cultured on other dairy-free solids. That’s why you might see it in some dairy-free products, like this one.

Best I've had since kicking dairy to the curb!
This stuff is AMAZING! I had to give dairy the boot a few years ago and have been looking for a ranch replacement ever since! I’ve tried making my own and just about every vegan option out there but none held a candle to HV Original Ranch until now. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that the leader in regular ranch is the one that managed to kill it when making it dairy free. Anyway, highly highly recommend and hoping HV comes out with more dairy free products!
Had no idea how it would taste
Until I tried it and it taste the exactly the same.
Could not tell the difference between this and regular.
Taste just like the real thing!
I thought it was delicious 😋
Not worth trying
It’s extremely slimy textured, taste is nothing like Hidden Valley Ranch and a very strong chemically aftertaste.
