I made pizza tonight using the Classico whole tomatoes which I had drained well and then processed the tomatoes with a stick blender. Truthfully, just not as good as the Classico crushed or ground tomatoes. This is exactly what I have encountered in the past, when comparing a brands crushed tomatoes with whole tomatoes processed as stated, the whole tomatoes never taste as good.
Well; guess they can't all be winners, at least now we know. Thanks Dave.  :chef:

I just opened a can of Cento whole tomatoes in puree and a can of crushed Classico.  No comparison, the Classico were excellent and ready to use, I had to use some salt to get the Centos right (plus there were a lot of seeds after I hit it with the stick blender).  I mixed them together and it is a pretty good sauce, though.

better stock up if you can find them, because something tells me that the Classico's are gonna be gone forever soon!

One of the 3 cans of Classico that I found at Walmart had an best by date of 9/13 and the other two are good till 2014 so I used the aging can in some 15 bean soup. I just wanted to open the can and taste them for the first time. They really are good. How typical of me to find them just before they vanish.  :(
At least I still get plenty of 6 in 1.

I can still get 6-1, just in #10 cans.

It's not the end of the world guys, there are better tomatoes around than Classico's and 6 in 1's IMHO, it's just that the Classico's were so cheap and easy to get at your local Wally World, not always the case with some of the better tomatoes out there.

I can get the 28 oz size 6 in 1's but they're 2/3 the $5.49 cost of the No. 10 can. The smaller can is what I need but the 6lb 9oz is such a great deal. I've got a Sophie's Choice here. Well, ok. Not the choice she had but which can do I metaphorically shoot?  :-\

I must say I agree.  The only way tomatoes get frozen around here is in lasagne, which is very carefully reheated.  Well, carefully reheated by me.

My wife wanted to buy something that apparently was only offered at one area Walmart about 1/2 hour away. I did a quick check of their store for the availability of Classico Crushed Tomatoes and said, "Wait a sec, Honey, I'll be right with you." Scored 9 more cans. As I was loading the last three cans into my cart some guy about my age (except he looked pretty old) arrowed down the aisle toward the tomato section and looked pretty unhappy when he saw the empty shelf. I asked him if he wanted a couple of cans ( I kind of felt like a crack dealer) but he declined and said he'd look at another store because he needed more. I asked him if he'd heard of pizzamaking.com but he just looked at me like I was nuts, left his cart in the middle of the aisle and walked out of the store.

Well, maybe we're wrong!!
I just returned home from Walmart with 16, that's right, 16 cans of Classico crushed tomatoes! Maybe they aren't going away after all, maybe Wallyworld is just restocking. I don't know what's going on, but I bought ever can on the shelf. Still $1. ;D
