Stop & Shop Chunky Garden Style Peppers & Mushrooms Pasta Sauce

Recently, my wonderful father gave me a container of Stop & Shop Chunky Garden Style Peppers & Mushrooms Pasta Sauce and I’m very glad that he did so. This variety of pasta sauce is quite delicious and I think it would be a good product to review. Presented here, in an effort to assist the consumer, is one food writer’s product review of Stop & Shop Chunky Garden Style Peppers & Mushrooms Pasta Sauce.

Size
The net weight of the standard – sized container of Stop & Shop Chunky Garden Style Peppers & Mushrooms Pasta Sauce is 26 ounces (737 grams). According to the product’s nutrition facts label, the container holds about six 1/2 cup servings.

As with many other products, the serving size of this sauce seems small to me. Several times now, I have eaten this delicious sauce and each time, I have received approximately 2.5 servings from one container.

Price
The regular retail price charged for one 26 ounce container of Stop & Shop Chunky Garden Style Peppers & Mushrooms Pasta Sauce at Hartford, Connecticut area Stop & Shop supermarkets is approximately $2.

This price seems very reasonable to me. Similar, name brand varieties of pasta sauce cost significantly more than this sauce, even though this sauce is just as good. The per – serving cost of this sauce works out to roughly $0.34c.

Consistency / Texture
This pasta sauce features a thick and pleasing texture that adheres well to all types of pasta. Plenty of large – sized chunks of peppers and mushrooms are included in Stop & Shop Chunky Garden Style Peppers & Mushrooms Pasta Sauce.

The pieces of mushrooms and peppers in this sauce are instantly – recognizeable. With many brands of garden – style pasta sauce, the pieces of vegetables are not always identifiable. When the pieces are covered with tomato sauce, it is hard to tell what they are.

With Stop & Shop Chunky Garden Style Peppers & Mushrooms Pasta Sauce, the pieces of mushrooms and peppers are still fairly firm and fresh in texture. In my humble opinion, the chunks of vegetables in this sauce are more appealing than those found in higher – priced, name brand pasta sauces.

Taste / Flavor
On a regular basis, I eat various brands of pasta sauce. The Stop & Shop Chunky Garden Style Peppers & Mushrooms Pasta Sauce that my Father brought over is definitely one of the tastiest sauces that I have tried.

No exaggeration, this pasta sauce is very flavorful. Previously, I tried another variety of Stop & Shop pasta sauce and was amazed by the great flavor and texture it offered. This variety of sauce is just as good. The Stop & Shop Chunky Garden Style Peppers & Mushrooms Pasta Sauce is fairly sweet and the large chunks of vegetables add a lot of flavor. On a flavor scale of one through ten, I would assign this product a rating of 9.75.
