To me, Sam and many others that meant the only acceptable condiment for my
lunch sandwiches with Isaly’s chipped ham.
It appears the rest of the world thought either Miracle Whip of Hellman’s
would be fine.
Well, it wasn’t.
Any idea? By memory only Anne Page Salad Dressing was the name.
No I have No idea of taste
Thanks for your thought
"Sultana" and "Ann Page" were A & P's store brands for some of their products in the 50s and 60s.
It appears that Kraft made a concerted effort to dominate the market for this type of "salad
dressing" with their "Miracle Whip", and as a result, they drove most of the other brands into
extinction. That's not to say that "Miracle Whip" tasted like "Ann Page Salad Dressing", just that
they were similar types of "salad dressing" as opposed to salad dressings like "French", "Italian",
"Green Goddess", "Thousand Island", and the like.
The only description of Ann Page Salad Dressing that I can find is from an old newspaper ad:
"Ann Page Salad Dressing is rich with salad oil and egg yolks, and its distinctive mildly tart
flavor will make your favorite salad taste even better."
I searched for information about "Sultana" and "Ann Page" salad dressings in 2016 with no success,
and I had no better success today. See: 3-18-16
I'll post this in the hopes that someone might recommend another salad dressing or mayonnaise product
that tastes similar.
