Saw a large can of these (Italian peeled tomatoes) today, never heard of them. Anyone every tried them?

Restaurant-sized Corrado products is a foodservice private label brand. Corrado operates a terrific supermarket on Main Avenue in Clifton, NJ and also runs a foodservice operation nearby at 600 Getty Avenue, also in Clifton, NJ. Corrado private label supermarket and foodservice products show up at outlet/surplus places in the NJ/NY area from time to time.

I have a 90 oz. can of the Corrado San Marzanos that's been sitting on my shelf for a couple months. I probably won't ever use it, as I can't stand seeds and milling is too much of a hassle.

I don't ever see myself being a big San Marzano fan.  Milling is messy and the SM puree/passata is about 5 times the price of the California puree, and, imo, is not as tart/bright/fresh tasting.

Speaking of stuff I probably won't ever use, I just checked my shelf and have a hulking 6 lb. 9 oz. can of 6 in 1 all purpose ground tomatoes. I hate skin even more than seeds.

If anyone's willing to come to Morristown, I'll part with both cans for $2. PM me.

If I'm ever close to Morristown I'd gladly relieve you of the 6 in 1's.
