as far as sauce goes, i've bought hunts once or twice, and with some doctoring made good, quick, improved sauce with them. i particularly remember a good shrimp and scallop dish made with hunts, mostly becauce the protein and fresh herbs were perfect without much cooking. the sauce was just right with their additions.

andy, i've also found muir glenn to be too acidic a few times, but other times good. it seems they're not consistent.

for canned tomatoes (not sauce), i prefer cento, la fede, or what i freeze from my garden.

I do not buy sauce, for me it is a texture thing.

I buy whole, diced, crushed and paste.

I do not have any brand loyalty when it comes to canned tomato products.

We've used Hunts and Redpack.
The plus for Hunt's (aside from our owning ConAgra stock) is that the can liner is non-plastic.
Redpack has a few additional ingredients ( garlic, onion and red peppers).
I have not found a sauce to this day that is as good as making it myself. And as prices have raised quality has dropped. A lot of sauces in my opinion have thinned out and are just too runny

At's quite all right; appears some others may have thought the same thing.

For tomato sauce I like Hunts. For spaghetti sauce I always keep a jar of traditional Ragu in the pantry for just in case. I prefer Rao's but it's too expensive.

I believe the brand is DeLallo. I purchace the canned tomato product with the least added ingredients. I use tomato puree instead of tomato sauce. I also love diced tomato, and tomato paste for the same reasons. Once in a while, I'll get stewed tomatoes. It's a warm-fuzzy thing to do, as my mother used to make stewed tomatoes and serve them at dinner time, once in a while.

Now BT, I know that as a child, you were refereed to by your siblings as the warm, fuzzy, Tasmanian Devil. And no, she didn't serve us warm, fuzzy tomatoes. We did, however, participate in a rotten tomato fight at one of my stepfather's cousin's house. And the adults started it. The harvest season was over, and there were still tomatoes in the garden, several rows of them. I recall that it was very messy, and a whole lot of fun. I mean, when do you ever, as a child, get to throw a tomato at an adult? C'mon. How great was that day?
