  1. I have bought this brand before but will now look for it!! Thanks for the information on the company. I really like this type of packaging over aluminum!! Your recipe looks delicious I will be making it for sure! 🙂

  2. Looks yummy! Did I miss it, where do they sell this? I HATE buying food in cans because of the BPA. Buying the Eden’s brand, which I think is the only can that doesn’t have BPA is expensive. This sounds like an affordable option that’s good for your health. SCORE! 🙂

      You can go to the Pacific Foods website to see where it is sold in your area. Harris Teeter and Whole Foods have it near me.
