no, but my local Shop-Rite is stocking it, let us know what you think.I'm actually going to Shop-Rite tonight to try Jersey Fresh tomatoes, maybe I'll grab a can of these also.

I will say, I don't find Italian tomatoes to be anything special, and these are Italian tomatoes.

The texture and color was different than what I am used to.  They were more "shredded and lumpy" than crushed, sort of what I get when I hand crush whole tomatoes. The specific gravity seemed lower than the Classico's and Sclafani's I have been using lately.  The color was somewhat more orange than red.  However, they tasted good directly from the can.  Maybe do to the texture, I liked them better in a pan pasta sauce than on the pizza I made.  I was too lazy to use the stick blender when making the pizza.

dmcavanagh,

I hope you love the Jersey Fresh!  I stumbled upon them at my local ShopRite yesterday when I was looking for the Sclafanis.  I used them last night and they were delicious.  But what else would expect from a Jersey tomato?  Let me know what you think.
