Which brands are you loyal to?

Ooh - and Newman's Own Prunes. These things are soooo good!! I treat myself to a few each night before tucking in. They are gooey, chewy, and not too prune-ish at all. Kind of taste molasses-y, really. They've made them almost good enough that you want to eat the whole bag...almost (fortunately!). The only thing that bugs me is that the little hole used to hang the sachets in the grocery store is invariably punched BELOW the zip-lock resealing thing, letting air in. Boo.

Gotta be Lucini Italia (http://www.lucini.com). Love them! Their hand-picked, heirloom Tuscan Plum tomatoes from Bolgheri, Italy (in BPA free GLASS jars, no less) are absolutely vibrant and will raise the profile of just about any dish. And I am over the moon about their new infused olive oils. These use pure essential oils for their flavour (rather than synthetics or chopped up bits of stuff that'll surely go rancid...) -- drizzle the Tuscan Basil one over a tomato salad and I am set!
