Name Brand vs. Store Brand: Putting them to the Test

Name vs. Store Brand: Salsa

We tried 6 kinds of salsa.  I was a bit surprised at the results.

Herdez    1.68

La Victoria    2.14

On the Border   2.06

Great Value    1.98 for 24 oz.

Pace    2.48 

Chi Chi's    2.28    

All of the salsas were 16 ounces except for the Great Value Walmart brand which was 24 ounces.  So, the better value is definitely the Great Value for the price.  As for taste, Great Value and Chi Chi's were the best.  The middle ones were Pace and On the Border.  the worst was Herdez and La Victoria wasn't much better.  I must say that I was surprised.  I would have thought that Pace would have been the best, but it didn't work out that way.  

Maybe you can see the salsas better here.  I had a hard time getting a good picture.  The On the Border salsa had a more orange color than the rest and had more spices.

What's your favorite brand of Salsa?  Have you tried another brand than the ones we tried?

Favorite brand of salsa??  I make and can my own from my homegrown vegetables.

I like reading your comparisons.  This is something I would not do and it's fun reading about it!

Well my favorite brand is Pace. But I buy Great Value.  I am thinking of doctoring my Great Value with jalapenos and extra tomatoes...I bet that would make it taste better.
