The Winona Cooking Examiner purchases Allens vegetables for many meal preparations. This particular brand has a flavor that is as close to fresh vegetables as you can get. There has never been a tin taste associated with this brand. Having Allens vegetables on hand in the pantry is a life saver when nights are packed with so many activities there isn’t enough time to clean, chop and cook down fresh vegetables. In times like this Allens foods are healthy, tasty and easy to heat and serve.
