I’m not a huge blackberry fan, but they do taste just like blackberries!
If you like blackberries, then you’ll most likely enjoy these.
I wish I had some words for you here, but this just isn’t something that’s in my regular rotation so I haven’t tried it.
I’ve tried these once and they were great! I threw them in a soup. I just don’t use diced potatoes very often in my cooking, so I don’t have very much experience with these.
Haven’t tried these – my family doesn’t like cooked tomatoes at all. And since we don’t eat them on a normal day, they don’t really make sense for our food storage.
I don’t do re-heated chicken and this qualifies. I’m a chicken snob – I know. It has a canned chicken/microwaved chicken vibe to me. So if you don’t like nuked chicken, then you may not love this, so maybe start with a pantry can and give it a try before you buy it by the case.
Most people seem to like these chicken slices just fine. And with a 25-year shelf-life they’re a really great protein option for your long-term food storage.
Classic Tomato Sauce
I haven’t tried this – I have only tried the tomato powder. This is a different item.
These truly make a great snack for any time. Super convenient to toss in a lunch box or just munch on straight out of the can.
Just beware, if you’re not going to eat them pretty quick (like within a couple to a few weeks) or if the lid isn’t secure, they will get kind of chewy.
