DiGiorno Marinara Sauce

This was pretty bad. Seems like that's a trend with DiGiorno products. The sauce is purchased in the refrigerated case next to the DiGiorno pastas. Given the high price it's amazing that it is so bad. Too sweet, too chemical, not fresh tasting, too herbed -- leave this in the refrigerator case with the DiGiorno Reduced Fat Cheese Ravoli. Every one of the bottled tomato sauces tested so far are much better than this "fresh" marinara sauce.
