“ Brand: Dolmio / Type: Sauces „
Over years I got to see loads of Dolmio adverts on TV over an over again. I though they are never to go away and even though I stopped watching TV I am sure they go on until these days.
The Dolmio Taste of Tuscani Tomato & Chianti is an easily available product at any supermarkets all over UK for many years, in fact I wander if it always existed from the beginning of time or something. Believe it or not I have never tried it until today.
This is a pasta sauce that comes in an transparent long glass jar, the label only cover about a third of the jar and the rest is see trough. I like buying products like that because I can see the product inside and I must say it looked really tempting. It contains 350 grams, that is enough for 2 people with 200 grams of pasta that would make an quick filling meal of about 500 calories each.
I know Dolmio is a big brand and big brands of food like this have the tendency in my opinion to sell things that are not that good tasting. I bough the sauce in a hurry along with other 5 different random brands, perhaps if I had more time that day to look around I would of skipped it.
You know, the taste was not that interesting at all. I can taste tomatoes, some chunks of tomatoes, saltiness and I don't know something I can't exactly identify.
What I really dislike is the fact that I can actually taste the tomato concentrated puree and that taste noting like a good tomato at all. Is a false and cheap taste that just does not appeals to me.
