“ Brand: Asda / Type: Tomato „
I've gotten quite into tinned tomatoes lately and the type I prefer are the ones that come already chopped. I usually just buy a supermarket's own value range, but the normal supermarket own brand ones in Asda were on offer last week, so I picked up a few of these ones instead. The chopped tomatoes come in a standard size tin. There's no ring pull on the tin which does make it a little irritating having to open it with a tin opener, but most supermarket branded tinned products are like this anyway. The tin is full up right to the top with tomatoes which are a bright red colour and are chopped into small square pieces. They are swimming in a very bright thick red tomato sauce which keeps them nice and fresh and soft. I heated about half a tin of these up in the microwave for a couple of minutes which was plenty enough. The tomatoes were very soft to eat and I thought they were an excellent quality with no bad bits at all that I noticed. The tomato flavour is probably slightly stronger than the Smart Price range but, overall, they are very tasty and made a great accompaniment to my meal. To be quite honest, apart from the slightly stronger tomato flavour, I can't really say that there's any difference at all between the Asda ones and the Asda Smart Price ones. I didn't notice anything different in either the taste or the quality so, unless they're on offer again and work out cheaper than the value ones, I will just stick to the Smart Price version, as there's nothing wrong with those ones at all. I bought these for 3 for £1 which works out at 33p each, which is exactly the same price as the Smart Price tinned tomatoes. Their usual price is 58p. Although there's nothing wrong with them and I would recommend them, they're no better than the Smart Price ones so, unless on offer again, you might as well just buy the cheaper ones.
