GRAND PRIZE WINNER: Del Monte. This brand stood out for balanced, bright tomatoey sweetness—a go-to tomato for a quick-cooking pasta sauce.
TASTE TEST AWARD: Whole Foods 365 Organic. A midsummer-fresh tomato taste and a nice, thick texture make this a great option for any soup, stew, or sauce that needs body.
