Q: Why does Fanny's dressing get thick or gel when I take it out of my refrigerator?

Q: Why does Fanny's dressing sometimes look like it has particles in the bottom?

A: Fanny's Original dressing is a separating dressing which means it has a blend of spices that need to be shaken well. Those particles you see are those spices. We can't stress enough that the better you shake Fanny's the better Fanny's tastes.

Q: I love your Lite dressing. It is better than any Lite dressing I have ever had. What makes it so different from other Lite dressings?

A: Our secret blend of Oils and spices give Fanny's Lite dressing its unique flavor. You will find that most Lite dressings use water as their first ingredient. Fanny's does not sacrifice flavor by adding a lot of water.

Q: Why can't I find Fanny's in my local supermarket?

A: Many huge chains charge what is called a slotting fee for the privilege of being in their stores and this can be very costly for a small company. We have found though that our loyal customers have gotten Fanny's into some of these chains simply by making repeated requests to the store manager at their favorite store. Once a demand is created these chains have actually relaxed these huge fees and we can bring our product to you at a competitive price. So don't be shy about asking for Fanny's at your local supermarket.
