Has anybody try these 2 brands of canned tomatoes?
« on: September 18, 2013, 12:27:28 PM »
I can get this from a whole seller in houston.
the price is $25 for 6 number 10 cans  for La carmela and $23.5 for vitelli.

If somebody used them please let me know what you think. I am now using Cento Italian whole peeled.
thanks

wow! you have a nice selection there! I think the can on top of the others is your favorite.
How many pizzas are you making with 6 cans?

Hi Bert, thanks, I used those too since costco does not carry number 10 cans any more. I prefer big cans so I do not have to open a lot of them, that is one of the reasons I looking into buy big cans.

I've used the Francesconi  in the past, and they were wonderful.

I just found them on line here  https://www.teitelbros.com/store/shopthanks.asp

1.69 for a 35 oz can seems more than reasonable .
Larger cans , 6 lb. 9 oz.  asre 3.99

Vitelli is very good.  I recently tried them after seeing them towards the top in two different taste tests.

That's a good friend to have.
I ordered 12 of the 35 oz cans , a pound of Grana Pandano, a box of sea salt , and the shipping was only 14.00 , and the service was prompt.
Even at 1.00 per can shipping, it was still a great deal, and the Fancesconi were as good as I remember.

A friend just sent me this mozz , so I better get cooking.
