  1. You guys wanted a part 2, so here it is. There is no music in this video which is quite rare for us. Please leave feedback if you want it left out or returned for future videos. We had a great time making this video and would love to make more taste-testing videos. Don't worry about our recipe videos though. They will always be the biggest part of what we do. A new recipe video will be out this Thursday. Thanks for watching and liking our videos!

  2. need to test all the winners against each other, and all the lose….ummm…below the mean sauces against each other too

  3. Loving the blind tasting and I don't even live in the US which means these products aren't available to me.

  4. I used to live near Michaels of Brooklyn restaurant and they bottle some of their sauces to sell. I would see it in the local grocery store. I moved like 1000+ miles away and saw that freaking sauce in my store here. Had no idea they shipped all over. Nice to have it in my new corner of the world.

  5. Please rate Mid’s Marinara on your next taste test. Love these videos!

  6. RAO's seems to get high marks. $12 dollars a jar. You can make better homemade sauce.

  7. I bought some Victoria due to test one. You guys rate and explain well.

  8. I’m thinking maybe put everyone of the jars available on the counter . Pop around to each one and then rate it against each other. That way you kinda do a per calibration off each of the sauces. I like that you each wrote down the score. Thanks again

  9. I’m shocked that a company as diversified as Mezzetta can still produce a good marinara. They sell so many things you figure somewhere they’re scrimping.

  10. This was so much fun you guys thank you for testing these out for us. I’m going on your recommendations. 90 percent of the time I make my own but these are going to be my backups for when I’m in a hurry. Blessings. You guys are great.

  11. Until your last taste test, Rao had been my brand of choice for many, many years. Thanks to you guys, Victoria is now my favorite Marinara sauce. It's delicious.

  12. I'm probably gonna catch serious flack for this because he's a kid, but IMO if he's going to be on there he needs to be understandable. When James reads the ingredients it is very difficult to understand what he's saying. He doesn't enunciate, his words tend to run together, and his speaking volume seems to get lower as he continues reading. Maybe Mom or Dad could work on this with him. That said, I do like his takes on things.

    I love this series and like the other commenters, I think it should definitely be a regular series! Maybe also some blind tasting episodes of Parmesan cheese or olive oils. Please please please leave off the music! YouTube channels have a serious problem with this that often affects watchability. The volume of the music is often so high that it drowns out the voice of the host.

  13. Try Dell'Amore. We tried a bunch and settled on that because we're too damned lazy to make our own. It might just be our (admittedly non-Italian) taste buds' arbitrary choice but I think it was a really nice flavor. We got the spicy kind, can't speak for the other varieties.

  14. Watched both parts of this with my mother. We did not recognise some of the eastern US brands but we have seen the newmans own kind.
    We would love to see a part 3! There are many more sauces we would be interested in seeing your review!

  15. So,I’m pretty sure my non-coastal, non-Italian background is showing since I truly think that Rao’s tastes like Chef Boy r dee and Prego is my go to for subsidizing my homemade sauces. The more you learn, the more you know.

  16. I highly recommend you guys put the product name on the screen at the beginning of each round

  17. Good job! Would love to see if there was a sauce that could come in about $5 and be a winner. I know high price equals better, but I need a deal.

  18. Love this series! Here's an idea for the reveal – add a sticker to the lid and write the price on the sticker, that way you don't have to keep going back and forth asking "How much was this one?"

  19. Here's an idea: Pick a jarred cost-no-object winner, a jarred budget winner, and then price out a great recipe of your own homemade marinara from fresh. Then do a blind taste test of the three. Risky, yes. Will yours "win"? I put that in quotes because I'm guessing that any sauce in this kind of a comparison is already a winner.

  20. It may be hard to find near you, if at all, but It's A Utica Thing sauce is amazing! I was born and raised in Utica, NY, and the food there can't be beat! Especially the Italian food. It's my first choice for jarred sauce, second to Rao's

  21. More testing please! And I like the idea mentioned for the finale: best of the best including your own! This has been a fun option for us, thank you so much!

  22. Another one you should try in your next blind taste test is Cucina Antica, made with San Marzano tomatoes.

  23. Once you do all your taste test then do a top taste test of all the highest rated sauces

  24. Yaaaayyy!! ???? You tested two of the three spaghetti sauces I use: Victoria and Mezzetta. Now, I’m going to have to try Carbone. Please taste test Lucini. Thank you! ????
