Have You Tried…Tomato Paste TubesPosted by in Food | Have You Tried?
This is one of things where I find myself asking “what took them so long?” My fridge has long been a wasteland of tomato paste cans with one tablespoon scooped out, the rest left to die. I never use an entire can and it seems every time I need some, I have to open a new can since the old one has become an alien life form. These great new squeeze tubes let you use just as much as you want without creating waste. I paid $2.99 for a tube. And they contain only tomato paste and salt – no nasty preservatives! Love ’em.

Actually a friend gave me a tube at least 3 years ago. It is so convenient and just nice to have on hand. A little squirt just adds a deeper dimension to soups and stews.
Where in the grocery store did you find this? I am looking forward to not wasting so much tomato paste!
It was in the Italian section with the canned tomatoes and tomato paste. You can also buy it on Amazon.
We have had this since I was a child, I wonder why it’s taken so long to hit the US. It makes me wonder what US products the UK are missing out on!
That’s interesting Pru. The differences in products is really something. Going to a grocery store in London was quite an experience for us!
Fascinating–we’ve had them in NY for at least a decade, maybe more. Honestly, I thought they were everywhere. This country is just too huge for me to comprehend sometimes.
Yes, well things take a while to get to Buffalo!
I bought a tube (different brand) at Whole Foods and the box said to refrigerate after opening and use within a week or so. At that rate it is cheaper for me to buy cans and toss what I can’t use.
Well I agree with that – a week is not going to cut it!
I just used mine last night and looked at the expiration date – it’s not until 2013. So maybe the tube you bought was just old?
The problem wasn’t the expiration date. The wording on the package said to refrigerate after opening and use within a week. It may have been Whole Foods brand.
