I think we have really started something here...I have in the past when informed about San Marzona vs other brands and when tested the flavor was day and night...I did a flavor test with a few other store brought brands and agreed I thought true San Marzona had flavor and sweetness I could tell the differance and loved....yes year to year it might be differant....This is not just about Pizza but other dishes we all make....I sincerely believe the cost of the San Marzono vs Hunts is worth it.....My big problem is I have been buying the the brand we are talking about and paying 3.95 a can vs/ 1.50-2.00 for others.....I wish this was a total forum discussion and I hope it will be....come on Norma,peet-za,dkm, vcb and others...what are your thoughts...I know when you add a bunch of spices to the sauce it might not be noticable...but this to me is a big deal...
Calm down buddy...I don't think we have to send the big guns out just yet for an investigation!!

you say you have been using the "cheater label" product for a few years....so,...you like them ,right? But now AFTER finding out they don't actually come from where you thought they did you say..."really disappointed,just used 3 cans for pasta sauce to freeze"...again,..you like them. As CDN pointed out....the world is full of misnamed, mislabeled products...Norma, Peter et.al., superhuman as they seem,
can't police the tomato companies!
Go back and taste those tomatoes....they taste pretty good don't they? I know they do cause I've "been had" by that company too and believe me....for the price they charge (especially on 2 for 1 day) ...you could do a whole lot worse...
