A Tribute to Garlic Expressions

I'm calling this post a tribute to Garlic Expressions but it is more like I had a panic attack.  I have mentioned before that I use this salad dressing all the time.  I substitue this dressing for a lot of homemade recipes in salads.  I get so many complements on my salads.  All I know is I like the way this taste with savory salads and salads that have fruit added to them.

Two weeks ago I go to our grocery store and I am making a salad for dinner that night.  I go to the salad dressing aisle and there is no Garlic Expressions.  So I look for the barcode tag on the shelf and it is gone.   I go to the chef kiosk and ask if they know where they have put the Garlic Expressions.
He calls the manager and send someone to the aisle to look for the product.  He  comes back to say they have never carried that product.  Give me a break.  I was introduced to this amazing dressing by a former chef at the store.

When I checked out at the store I asked for a form to ask about the product, I stated in all caps that they have always carried it and need to get it back.  I then got home and ordered 6 bottles from the company, which was a great experience.  (I learned a couple of years ago that you can order directly from the company because my daughter that lives in Denver could not get it.  I often brought several bottles for her when I would go for a visit.  One of her local stores has finally started to carry it so she is very happy.)  It has arrived and we are enjoying it.

I returned to the store to buy groceries and went down the salad dressing aisle just to see what has happened.  It is back on the self and with an ample supply.  Meanwhile I will use the ones I ordered and buy some at the store.  It really was a small panic attack but nothing else taste like this product.
