As per title, packs 4 x 400g Cans of Napolina Chopped or Plum Tomatoes are £1.94 at Tesco. Now both online and in store. It is claimed to be half price, but that's only because they hiked the price right up recently. Anyway, it's cheaper than buying Tesco own brand (not Tesco Value) and I think these are the best affordable tinned tomatoes you can buy.

Incidentally, for fans of Italian cooking, Somerfield have Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil 500ml bottles for £3.85 and BOGOF right now.

You're clearly thinking along the same lines as me. I can only think that the people voting cold believe that there are better value tinned tomatoes out there or maybe there is some kind of covert pleasure in anonymously voting deals cold that I haven't yet discovered.

I voted cold because I think this is an extraordinarily high price for tinned toms. Maybe I am out of touch but I always believed that toms were the cheapest of tinned vegetables - at least 20p a tin.

I can get a new Ford for £6k does that mean the BMW is a cold deal as well as its a higher price? hmmm.. I guess we will agree to disagree.

As for the cold voters....You usually find that people just vot cold for the hell of it, no particular reason, way I see it is that the hot/cold voting is totally meaningless unless they put a reason or their name to it, lets face it the majority of cold voters are too afraid to do that becuase you'd find out that the reason they vote cold is also meaningless. Until theres a more meaningful method of evaluating a deal then I wouldnt worry about the Ice Trolls......let them live in their world of psychosis, who knows they might even climb up the torch beam and escape the asylum..lol:w00t:

I buy nostia premium italian tinned toms which IMO are very good quality tinned toms they are like 32p a tin.... you can also get nostia standard ones which are very good for 19p a tin (far superior to supermarket value type).

You pays your money, you take your pick. Personally I'd keep the spare pennies for something else - but each to their own.

Love these tinned toms - other cheapy brands are watery and tasteless IMO. Voting hot

I think that is all fair comment. I haven't tried the Nostia brand, but it sounds like their premium Italian tinned tomatoes are a good buy at 32p.

Napolina are nice too and given the choice between supermarket value brand and Napolina I'd grudgingly part with a pile more coins esp if I was going to eat the toms as toms and not as a component of a recipe.

:p
#15
Sorry, I can't help myself, these are plumb toms and not a standard toms....

Sorry just had to get that off my chest as the cold voters don't say why they are voting cold....

Where can you buy Nostia brand???

#16
everybody has things that they cannot compromise on and I have many, and tinned toms are one, they have to be good a Nap ones are the best and under 50p a tin is bargain..... voted hot
#17
voting cold because i dont like these, dont need to go into details why. i just dont like them. also why do people find it so important that they need to find out why people dont vote hot, who cares if they think these are c**p or dont think they are value for money?????(its not the end of the world) !!!!!!
if you find that you need to know why, perhaps yourve got your priorities in life wrong. IMO

It really is getting a bit daft and then when you give a reason why you think it is good or bad, the same people get aggresive and some even start name-calling:whistling:

Good price!

I posted a deal on these tomatoes a month or so ago (http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/249939/napolina-tomatoes-chopped-400g-57p/), however this is a better price.

I think these are by far the best tin tomatoes that are on the market. Have some heat and rep for the good find!
#23
Everytime these are posted, someone has to explain again, yet they get voted down.
They vote cold because a hot deal is 0.28% off an already overpriced sat-nav.

Unfortunately the concept of "value" and equating quality to price is something only a small proportion of users here understand.

Now if Sony or Apple sold tomatoes, they'd be hot at 20 quid a time :-(

Very true!

Do these brand-name peeled plum tomoatoes actually taste any better than the budget-line own-brand ones? I've never bought anything other than the cheapest ones available, but they've gone up from 19p to 26p now, and if these are down from £1 to 50p a tin, I guess it's not too big a leap to make anymore. Any recommendations?
#26
For £2 why not buy fresh, great taste and much more nutritious than these rubbish ones.
(yes there are some nice canned ones but these aren't those, last time I got them I had to almost dump a half a kilo of sugar to cut out their acidity)
#27
Good price for these - they're top quality and highly rated by a lot of the top chefs.
Its like comparing a Ford Escort against a .......

No,I'm not going there :p

Heat and rep added.

Either you are trolling or just not in touch with reality! :-(

Fresh tomatoes, as in the pale orange things sold in supermarkets and greengrocers are neither use nor ornament for anything you would use canned Italian tomatoes for! All they do taste of is water and are acid because of under-ripeness, in fact usally far more acid than any canned variety I have ever tried.

Now, if you had suggested home grown tomatoes which you had selected the variety for taste and texture, grown outdoors in a good summer, you might have had a point, (even if most people have neither the time or circumstances to grown their own); but hot house grown commercial tomatoes are the most useless items stocked by shops, and at a push I would be hard strapped to tell the difference between them and Golden Delicious apples, apart from the colour and size! Decorative items, that perhaps add moisture to other foods. Even the "grown for flavour" varieties are pretty poor, as well as even more expensive, to the extent that 2 quid's worth would buy so little, it would hardly be worth the bother of putting them in a pan! Especially now it is November, and need to be heated 24/7 while growing.

Fresh tomatoes are barely suitable for a salad, and add little more than colour in fact they are THE prime example of a product that has been totally ruined by commercial development, but are certainly near useless when it comes to cooking.

Imported fresh Italian plum tomatoes are another matter - when in season, IF you can get hold of them, and IF you can afford them - that is, IF you are happy about dragging them thousands of miles by air!

Seeing the cans of tomatoes will last many many months (years really!), they also make an exceptionally good store cupboard item, ready at a second's notice, while fresh ones will look pretty sad in about a fortnight at best. Besides, canned tomatoes contain more lycopene than fresh, and as such are a rare example of a product that is more nutritious when processed!

If Italian cooks use canned & bottled tomatoes for their sauces, (after all it isn't summer all year even in Italy) there might be a very good reason for that!

The premium canned tomatoes from Aldi & Lidl (not their cheapest) I find best for ordinary cooking purposes, as they are the best value around usually, but undoubtedly the Napolina are the best for when you are pushing the boat out - odd really as most other Napolina products are a bit ordinary, for example their pasta is as uninspiring as any supermarket own brand!
