You Can Buy Pizza-Flavored Salad Dressing

On Monday, for reasons unbeknownst to me (let’s say for science), members of the NPR staff tried a pizza-flavored salad dressing.

Self-described humorists from NPR’s Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me! quiz show subjected their bodies to a flavor of Chef Kidd’s Funagrette. The salad dressing is meant to be a fun way to entice kids to eat salads, but literally sounds like the physical incarnation of regret.

Highlights of their heroic taste test include:

As a salad dressing, it’s gross. As a proof of concept for intravenous pizza, it’s promising. – Ian Chillag

This isn’t a way to get kids to like salad. It’s a way to get them to hate pizza. – Peter Sagal

The Honey Berry and Cocoa Berry Funagrettes sound palatable, but Lime Rickey (some sort of pirate disease vinaigrette, I’m assuming) and PB & J flavors also threaten to drench children’s salads.

You’ve been warned.
