People love ranch. People love ranch so much that they make and wear Hidden Valley charm necklaces. People love ranch so much that the idea of ranch Pop-Tarts dominated the internet for a day. People love ranch so much that it was officially reported as the most-shipped variety of dressing to cafeterias and restaurants. People love ranch so much that Hidden Valley created a ranch fountain. People love ranch so much there is an all-ranch restaurant in St. Louis. Need we continue? Didn't think so.
So, given all the above, is it thaaaat outside the realm of possibility that White Claw Hard Seltzer would introduce a ranch flavor? After all, ranch-flavored soda does exist (we've tried it—have you?!). But, you guys, this might be too far—even for ranch lovers. Compromising the crisp, coolness of a hard seltzer with ranch, no matter how much you're obsessed with the versatile dressing, seems weird and gross. That’s why the Instagram post from @worst.buy is such an epic troll.
Ranch and hard seltzer are two of America’s biggest food and drink trends at the moment. Ranch holds a place in our hearts as the dressing, dip, and flavor of choice for savory snacks. Hard seltzer allows us to imbibe in a lighter, more refreshing way. Putting these two trends together is, frankly, diabolical, don't you agree?
Because that would be wrong, as anyone who has seen that Hidden Valley airport commercial and cringed at the thought of chugging straight ranch can attest to. The post looks eerily real, and as user @punkrockpidgeotto points out in a comment, “I’m pretty sure there’s people who’d WANT to drink it.” As tasty as ranch is, though, it’s not exactly something you’d categorize under “refreshing,” so it’s probably never going to make its way into White Claw or any other major seltzer brand's (hard or not) repertoire. That’s fine with us—eating some pizza with ranch and chasing it down with a fruity White Claw sounds like a much better combo anyway.
