I've tried the whole tomatoes and didn't find them to be as good as the crushed, I also did the same thing (another thread) with Classico's whole and they too were not as good as either their ground or crushed. The best whole tomatoes I have found are Stanislaus Alta Cucina's. Hey Chicago Bob, I think you're on the wrong website, believe it or not, there are two tomato companies named Sclafani. The one we're talking about is from NJ and sells domestic tomatoes, it is now owned by B&G Foods. The other Sclafani, and the one you probably looked up, is in CT. and deals in Italian imports.
