This is the only jar sauce we have ever purchased because it is just
perfect without the sugar. Tomato sauce does not need sugar
especially if it has lots of basil in it. Please go back to making this
without the sugar. I was going to purchase several jars of Tomato and Basil today and when I noticed the change I put the jars back on
the shelf.

Please - I used to buy your sauce instead of make my own but now that you have changed up your ingredients I fear that I will not be a loyal customer and search else were. Why would you add more sugar?!

I just clicked on the ingredients link on your page for tomato & basil. It doesn't list sugar but the new products in the store do. Very deceiving. I am also a consumer that bought this product alot, because it was the only one of your sauces that did not contain sugar. Please go back to the old recipe.

SUGAR in recipe - WHY???
Posted on 4/11/2014 by ek
I was so pleased to have a tomato sauce (Classico Tomato & Basil) without sugar and I bought it regularly at Costco. I went to get more and noticed sugar on the ingredients. Why?? It was a wonderful sauce - tomatoes are so flavorful with out any added sugar. And here is my soapbox - most foods have too much added sugar and the consumer should be outraged by that.

Please return the product to the original recipe so that I can buy it again!

This used to be our favorite sauce because it had no added sugar. Please go back to the original recipe.

Tomato sauce that is properly ripened and seasoned does not need added sugar.

I love this sauce. Use it all the time and have for years. You can get a 3 pack at Costco. I used it last night and found some type of a piece of plastic in it! I'm so upset because this was my favorite sauce. I took a picture and posted it on Facebook and many of my friends said it looked like the middle of a bandaid!!!

Change in recipe?

I have been buying this sauce for years because I love the flavor and it has no added sugar. Suddenly this week I noticed that the label was a bit different, so I looked at the ingredients, and lo and behold, you've added sugar. Why? Now I will no longer buy this sauce.

no sugar=winner

Thank you for making a sauce with no sugar. This is the only product I will purchase at this point. Please consider removing sugar from your other sauces. They don't need it.

Best of the Best

You should get rid of suger from most of your sauces (except ones labeled as sweet). You used to! Until then, only Tomato and Basil for me. Great sauce!! Used to buy Spicy Red, and Fire Roasted before you added sugar.

The only jarred sauce I'll EVER use
Posted on 2/9/2014 by Tony
I grew up in an an Italian American family and jarred sauces were never used. I usually make all my own sauces, but I've used this sauce for many years, it's the only one that tastes homemade to me. I've tried the other Classico sauces, they are good, but they are too sweet. This has no sugar, so I stick by it.
