Look in the produce section, not the canned tomato aisle for this brand. Previously, smaller bits for mixing into salads were made, but now strips and halves are solely offered. The spices used are mild and allow the rich tomato flavor to dominate the palate. The oil is generous and packed with flavor. You can take a small pair of scissors and cut each strip into bits, a messy task, but worth the effort. The bottling and seasoning method softens the strips giving an Al dente texture. I recommend people try this product once and evaluate it for themselves.
