Has anyone used these, and what is your opinion. I was told by the clerk in my local import store that they were the best of the tomatoes they sell. At $4.69 a can, I want to make sure they're good.
Many years ago, I was driving around and heard Arthur Schwartz on 770 or 710 radio talking about how great Coluccio tomatoes were and he said where I could buy them. I bought a can and loved them. I bought a bunch more. Then, I heard that Coluccio brand is overrated San Marzano tomatoes and there were many other brands that cost less that were just as good. So, I went through cheaper brands of San Marzano tomatoes from the base of Mt. Vesuvius. I'm now in NC trying to find Coluccio because there just isn't any better or comparable brand. I'm also not employed ... which makes paying more money for tomatoes a little nuts but that's how good I personally think they are.
Yeah, they cost more. Yeah, they're worth it.
P.S.: Would you post where you're buying them so I can contact them? I'm trying Chef's Choice in NJ but haven't heard from them.
