Cento Italian Kitchen Crushed Tomatoes - Product of Italy
« on: September 24, 2021, 11:47:17 PM »
I purchased a 3-pack at the Costco in Simi Valley.  The price was under $3/can, so I figured they were worth trying.  The consistency was very thick, almost like tomato paste and it sort of tasted like tomato paste.  I added 3.5 grams of salt, which made it worse, and then I added some sugar (which I never do), and it didn't help it either.  I know that tastes and expectations vary, but I suggest using some other tomato product.
Things have never been more like today than they are right now.

LOL.  Thankfully I still have a few cans of good tomatoes, but I want to stock up on something good.

Used to live in Simi Valley decades ago.
No Costco then, Gemco was the place to shop.

Simi hasn’t changed much.  I live in Camarillo, about 25 minutes away.  There are three Costco locations that are close: Oxnard, Simi, and Westlake Village.  They things that are stocked at each store varies wildly.  You can get real Waygu beef and caviar at Westlake, Hatch chilis, various Mexican cheeses, Goya Sazón and occasional San Marzano tomatoes at Oxnard, and Snapple ice tea crates (a staple in this household) at Simi.

Check the other cans, my experience with Cento is they have a consistency problem, especially these days.
