Last month I was contacted by Red Gold asking if I would like to receive a gift box and try out their products. I eagerly accepted because one thing I go through quickly here at the HQ is tomato products. Next to beans and stock, they are the most consumed canned good.
I’ve tried Red Gold products in the past and have been pleased with them. They are also one of the few companies that does not put HFCS in their canned tomatoes. Bonus!
Read the labels of the canned tomatoes you purchase and see if they contain HFCS. Most do and a few will only contain sugar. It was one of the products that surprised me the most when I started reading labels more.
Okay, sorry for the tangent! Getting back on target, I got the gift pack in mail and was surprised by all the goodies that it contained.
The gift pack contained:
- 4 cans of tomato products
- 1 bottle of ketchup
- Magnet for the fridge
- Recipe book
- Reusable grocery bag (which is really durable!)
I got busy that night cooking with diced tomatoes and green chilies.
I basically made a different version of this. The outcome was a lovely mix of veggies and beans with a spicy kick at the end. I don’t often buy the diced tomatoes with green chilies but now I just might have to start picking some up!
The price of Red Gold tomatoes are a bit more expensive than other brands. However you’re getting a sound tomato product that doesn’t contain HFCS.
Their ketchup is a different story and that does contain HFCS so we have not used that product. But the diced tomatoes and whole peeled tomatoes do not.
Thank you Red Gold for the gift pack and allowing me to share my experience!
Do you use canned diced tomatoes? Do you can your own? I would like to get to that point but right now I purchase. They are extremely handy to have in the pantry!
