Uncle Dan Returns to Wray's, 50 Years Later!

Uncle Dan Returns to Wray's, 50 Years Later!

Chris Stephens6 comments

On May 21st, 1966, at Wray’s Thriftway in Yakima, Washington, the man we would come to know as Uncle Dan wowed shoppers with demos of his dry dressing and seasoning packets. Fifty years later, Uncle Dan returned to Wray's, joined by his son and present General Manager of Uncle Dan’s Salad Dressings, to celebrate half a century of work and flavor, to connect with the community Uncle Dan’s came from, and, of course, to offer in-store demos of his dry dressing and seasoning packets.

Loyal Uncle Dan’s fans came from far and wide to meet the man behind the dressing, and hang out with two generations of Dans. Some even left with their own priceless dressing packets personally signed by Uncle Dan!

Thank you to everyone who made this anniversary special, and stay tuned throughout the year for special events and discounts in honor of Uncle Dan’s half a century of delicious dressings.

WinCo and the Great Sample Spree

Chris Stephens
At the beginning of the year, Uncle Dan made a resolution. He resolved to do a bit more of what he loves; sharing good food with good people. Well, Dan’s resolved to do it, and when Dan resolves to do something...he does it. He’s off to a great start after setting up a sample booth at the Gluten Free Expo last month….but Dan wants to do more. After all, Dan didn’t make a World Famous dressing and seasoning by thinking bland! With the help of WinCo, Dan is going to be offering samples of his best products, for three months, in more than 30 WinCo stores across the Northwest! Is Uncle Dan’s Dressing a product you know and love? Come snack on a favorite. Never heard of it before? No better time to get acquainted.

A Gluten-Free Good Time!

A Gluten-Free Good Time!

Chris Stephens

The Gluten-Free Expo in Vancouver, BC early January may have been low on gluten, but it was packed with fun and flavor! Uncle Dan’s had a corner booth at the show, where Chris Stephens, General Manager, handed out samples of Dan’s dressings and seasonings, paired beautifully with other gluten-free grub. Neal Brothers mayo provides an excellent base for Dan’s dressings packets. Terra Exotic Vegetable Chips are colorful, funky and supremely dippable! Lundberg Rice Chips are another dipping classic, straight off the farm! All in all, the event provided an unparalleled opportunity to meet other creative food producers with products for the gluten-free community, while meeting awesome, friendly British Columbians and Vancouverites, and getting to do what we love-- share good food and Dan’s dressing. Thank you to everyone who came out to the show, all our new friends and fans, everyone who helped volunteer at the show and our booth, and all the other exhibitors who made the expo a gluten-free good time!

Introducing Trophy Spice!

Introducing Trophy Spice!

Chris Stephens

Uncle Dan’s is proud to announce that we have partnered with another northwest favorite, Trophy Spice!

Trophy Spice is an all natural blend and  rub line of seasoning. They were created to help bring excitement to the meats you already love, by infusing them with totally unique flavors.

Trophy Spice originated in a family meat shop on the farm where friends and family came together to create custom spice blends to use in making summer sausage. Later, Trophy Spice developed custom blends for seasoning deer, elk and beef. It was soon discovered that the spices were extremely versatile in many different types of cooking and cuisine, whether it’s barbecuing or fine dining.

The entire line of Trophy Spice flavors can be found on the Uncle Dan’s website for purchase!
