Anyone try these products? Canned beef ravioli, lasagna and Beefaroni.

Anyhoo... I ordered three cans of the Throwback ravioli from Amazon for
$1.58 each. I believe this is a marked down price as I had seen the
Beefaroni and lasagna in a few brick and mortar stores for around $3.

I tried the stuff last night and flat out didn't like it!
Anyone tried the Throwback stuff?

Geez Julie-o, you didn't like it? lol
Why is NOBODY here surprised?

Anyway, I always keep 2-3 cans in my pantry just as
easy food for hurricane season or just lazy nights.
I ate the last one about month ago so actually had
them on my grocery list for the next trip.

Never even heard about the Throwback kind so I looked it up.
Supposedly back to the old days when it was made much better or
so. Well I went to the store and bought 2 cans yesterday:
- the regular kind for 99 cents
- the new Throwback kind for $1.50

OK so next time I'm in the mood I'm going to open both cans and
have a side-by-side comparison. The Throwback cost 50% more so it
should taste much better. I'll just see about that though.

Sounds like they're trying to beef up business. I can't imagine paying
more for something called Throwback. If it was so much better in the old
days why did they change it? Gotta love marketing!

At any rate, it's still just canned pasta in sauce. If/when you do your
taste test I'd be interested in hearing the results. I'm not going to
watch a youtube video about it.

The claim is that there is more meat in the old style and it's Angus beef.
Also no high fructose corn syrup and the sauce it much thicker. A person who
did a comparison thought there was far too much garlic in the old style.
That could be it. I can handle a small amount of garlic but not too much.
