West coast source for Stanislaus tomato products (Tomato Magic, 7/11)?


Ironically enough, Stanislaus tomato products (particularly Tomato Magic and 7/11), produced in Modesto, California, essentially in the middle of California, are difficult to source as a retail customer, although readily available wholesale. I have found them on amazon and at websites that ship them back to CA from Missouri and Pennsylvania for high shipping costs.

Does anyone know of a west coast source for retail customers? (The Stanislaus website, under Contact Us, says, basically, we are flattered by your interest, but Sorry, Charlie).

Thanks

I've found the Bonta products (e.g. 6in1's) are easier to get as a consumer. I haven't had much luck with Stanislaus. I usually just ask a local pizzeria to sell me a can. They haven't said no yet.

Ken,

Escalon's 6 in 1, as Raj already mentioned, are a great substitute to the 7/11 and readily available at most stores. You can also order directly from Escalon (6 cans for $15 + $1.50 for shipping). I always order from them and it takes at the most 2 days to get to me.

Thanks, gents. I just re-ordered 6-in-1crushed. I use the Bianco DiNapoli (whole and crushed) and Sclafani (the New Jersey company, not the Connecticut) whole tomatoes. Just thought I would try the Stanislaus products if I could find them...

I wish there was a place and I wish they came in smaller cans too. Unfortunately they are foodservice only so not many places to find them retail. Too bad because they are very good. One good thing about buying them from Pennmac.com is that the shipping becomes less expensive per item the more you buy on one order.

Ken,

I went to Smart & Final recently in San Rafael, CA and they carry the 7'11's in #10 cans for $4.19 a can. Another really excellent product is the Heinz Bell 'Orto crushed tomatoes. I was really impressed with their bold fresh flavor, bright red color and NO tinny aftertaste.
