Roasted Red Bell Peppers vs. Roasted Peppers?

Is there a difference (flavor) between Roasted Red Bell Peppers and Roasted Red Peppers?

Grocery store yesterday... Roasted Bell were available in the size jar I wanted, while "peppers" were in a large one, and quite "spendy".

What say you all?

The roasted red peppers I usually buy (two different brands) are, I believe, bell peppers. They certainly taste like bel peppers. There is a wide variation in price sometimes.

I have never seen a jar labeled as roasted red bell peppers.

They are the same, unless the jar says they are HOT peppers.

I'm not sure about the price difference either but they should both be the same. The jars of roasted red bell peppers I buy have little bits of black on them - then there are some roasted red bell peppers that are perfectly red with no black. 99% of the time I will roast my own but if I just don't have time the jarred ones are fine - the jar in my refrigerator now says "fire roasted" red bell peppers.
