LOL. If you scan the indexes on this forum you will see that the most popular threads are those that try to replicate the products (pizzas, sauces, etc.) of others, and most notably the big chains. This shouldn't come as a surprise since very few people make their own pizzas at home and, for many, all they know are the products put out by the big chains. Over time, they become "anchored" to those products through conditioning and, for them, they become the standards against which all other products are compared. As it so happens, the PJ garlic dipping sauce is one that many people treasure, and for some, it is considered one of the best products that PJ offers. Because of that, other pizza operators try to replicate the sauce all the time to be able to offer it to their own customers.
oh Pete, I do agree with getting programmed and brainwashed... for example we say go make a 'xerox' copy... but xerox is a brand... go make a photocopy is more appropriate but since xerox invented the photocopy machine... well you where i'm going. 'Google it' is another one. But back to foods, when i was growing up you had to have a certain toothpaste, a certain orange juice brand... these days... i jump from one brand to the next which ever one is on sale when it comes to these simple consumer products.
other little things, like mayonnaise or ketchup or worcestershire or Tabasco sauce, i continue to be very selective though.
back to the PJ garlic dip... i thought i remember seeing that ingredient list... i was like this has got to have hydrogenated vegetable oil etc...
some things yes, but i find it hard to get 'programmed' into a specific dipping sauce that has a oil component when a fresh garlic and butter, or even a olive oil and garlic dip, so readily exists around the world in restaurants and homes.
this was my attempt to deprogram the original poster.
