Hidden Valley has made it possible to buy a mini keg of ranch dressing for $50. This gets you five liters of ranch, or 169 fl oz. The keg is conveniently stackable, in case you need more than one.
worked out that you can buy 160 oz of ranch in bottles for $30. So you're paying a $20 premium for the keg.
You can order one here.

They also offer a $1500 coffee can
If only you had invested in an Atmos Clock
