Welcome to Sample it Saturday! Each Saturday there will be a review of a Giant Eagle brand product. Giant Eagle has a “Brand Quality Guarantee” which simply states:
“As with any purchase from the family of Giant Eagle® brands, if you aren’t 100% satisfied with your purchase, we’ll give you double your money back.” (link)
*I was in no way compensated to do these reviews, and I purchased the product on my own dime. I promise to always provide honest feedback on every product.
This week we are trying Giant Eagle Pasta Cavatappi a 14 oz box is $1.25 (8.5 cents/oz) but sometimes go on sale for $1. SanGiorgio is $1.39 for 1 lb (8.6 cents/oz) and Barilla is the same price. The only other brand is the organic Nature’s Basket at $2.19 for 12 oz (18.2 cents/oz). Watch the ounces on these, sometimes different pasta is different sizes, though the boxes look the same.
I have to admit that I am not sure how to pronounce this curly pasta’s name. I don’t think I have a bit of Italian in my heritage! I thought this pasta was very good! We made it with sauce & chicken and my kids thought it was very cool curly pasta. Sometimes we can get good deals on pasta, but if I need some and it is cheaper, I would buy it again.
