Tuttorosso Challenge

It is no secret that I love Tuttorosso.

Wayyyyy back in 2009, before a DSLR, and when I thought it was totally acceptable to use a flash for food photography and before Tuttorosso knew anything about me; I was professing my love for their products. See, here is my spaghetti and meatballs post. I loved the brand then and I still love them now.

Here is another recipe using the Tuttorosso Brand… Artichoke Bruschetta

You know when you have a favorite brand, and you know in your brain you love them and they are the best, but don’t really have proof??

I have proof now that I am not completely delusional!

I am happy to say that I am now a Tuttorosso ambassador.
Tuttorosso sent me over a little kit so I could get my head out of crazy town and actually compare my beloved brand to one of their competitors.

Let me walk your through the challenge.

Tuttorosso Peeled Plum Tomatoes v/s Hunt’s Whole Peeled Plum Tomatoes

I opened the can of Tuttorosso Peeled Plum Tomatoes and carefully poured them into a tray.
Notice how all of the tomatoes are whole and intact??

Next, I opened the can of Hunt’s. Hmmmm. Not so intact.

Take a look at the two brands side by side…

HUGE difference.



Next I moved the tomatoes to the top of the tray and propped it up so the juices and the tomatoes could separate. I then moved the broken tomatoes to the side of the container.

The Tuttorosso had one little mishap in which I pushed up to the side.

And the Hunt’s, well the Hunt’s didn’t fair so well. I couldn’t even get all the broken pieces to stay on the sides. But as you can tell from the photo, YUCK, you get the picture.

And another side by side.

Now for cutting. I tried to find tomatoes from each brand that were intact completely and about the same size.
Tuttorosso looked as if I was cutting into a fresh tomato.

Hunt’s was not as firm when I cut into it.

Here is a peek at my score card. Can you tell which one is the winner?

And to be honest, it all comes down to flavor for me. I literally had to spit the Hunt’s out during the taste test. It tasted like a tin can.

Here are some Tuttorosso facts for you….


Also another fun fact, Tuttorosso products were just recently certified Non-GMO by the Non-GMO Project!

Tuttorosso is a fourth generation family owner company that has been growing tomatoes for more than 70 years. They pride themselves in not cutting corners. They grow fresh, vine-ripened, Non0GMO tomatoes that are picked at the peak of freshness and canned in Non BPA/BPS lined cans in as little as 3 hours. Now that’s FRESH!!!
