And is it 5 times as good as Hunts canned spag sauce?

My primary use of bottled sause is marinara as a base for a sauce I’m putting together. Why not tinned tomatoes? Pthalates. They might be called ‘tin cans’ but they’re lined with plastinc containing, yup, pthalates. I can get decent tomatoes in glass - but they’re typically a bit more expensive than good marinara.

Prego has always been my sauce of choice (although I do prefer the options with various meat additives, whether the mysterious “flavored with meat” or the Italian sausage-forward variety, to the traditional marinara.)

These are easy and I don’t want to shame anybody, but Marcella Hazan’s 3 ingredient marinara is probably better, and is almost as easy as heating up jarred sauce. You barely even dirty a knife. It isn’t my favorite marinara recipe, but it is definitely a good replacement for jarred sauce.

Allison, roughly translated, that says you have to be an idiot to park in the cart section.  And congrats to the employees who did that.

No one, not the writers and not one commentor, mentioned Arnold Palmers?!?!?

Ninety-five per cent of what I drink is water, and I still picked Aimee’s list. It was that good.

Hot tea? Iced tea? Fresh apple cider? Blackberry Clearly Canadian? (I’m looking at you, Allison)

Polar Seltzer (STRAIGHT OUTTA WOOSTAH DOOD) is the seltzer of kings. Accept no substitutes. This is my hill and I will die on it.

Celery soda anyone? Hot cocoa? Maybe this needs to be broken up into two lists, cold and hot beverages.

I developed a love for Fentemen’s soft drinks when I was in Ireland. They aren’t cloyingly sweet like most American soft drinks and they have complex flavors. The grocery stores in my small town don’t carry them, but I often seek them out when I am in places with better stores.

All-time greatest soda? Royal Crown Draft from the mid 90s.  Hires Root Beer a close 2nd.

I was about to be appalled if Chocolate Milk wasn’t on this list, but then Allison snuck Yoo-Hoo in there. I’ll allow this.
