Like a Garden in My Mouth

Pros:Fresh, spicy, tangy salsa full of fresh veggies.

Cons:Pricey. But worth it.

The Bottom Line: Award winning salsa, and you'll immediately see why.


If you’ve been reading my reviews for a while, you may have picked up on the fact that I like my beer fresh, thank you very much. But truth be told, that philosophy holds true for most foods in general. Good food, real food, should be fresh, flavorful, and vibrant-adjectives I have no problem at all using when I talk about Garden Fresh Gourmet salsas.

Among them, a favorite is Jack’s Special Salsa. Available in mild or medium, this isn’t your average cooked, jarred salsa (some of which are nothing more than glorified spaghetti sauce). No, this is real, restaurant quality salsa that is sold refrigerated and made from the finest fresh ingredients. And it comes from, of all places, Michigan. Who would have thunk it?

Jack’s Special Salsa is chock full of fresh minced tomato, onion, green bell pepper, garlic, and jalapeno. Fresh cilantro is abundantly sprinkled throughout, and there’s plenty of tangy lime and vinegar to kick things up a notch, too. The heat level is just barely perceptible on the mild, but leaves a decent bite in the finish on the medium. In either case, it’s not overbearing; it’s just one of many elements in this delicious salsa. It’s like a garden of fresh vegetable and spice flavors in the mouth.

Garden Fresh Salsa are pricier than most, with a 24-ounce tub running about $3.99 at Kroger. But we’ve also picked up three tubs for $6.99 at Costco on special, and they usually always carry 48-ounce jars for about $5.50. And you’ll want all you can get. Jack’s Special Salsa is bursting with so much fresh vegetable flavor that I’ve been know to eat half a tub at a sitting, piling the savory salsa in towering mounds on each tortilla chip. But that’s OK, because at just 10 calories a serving, you can indulge without really, well, indulging. Jack’s Special Salsa is great for cooking, too, and we love it on eggs, fish, and more. Baked chicken covered in melted Monterrey Jack cheese and smothered in this salsa is a family favorite.

We think Garden Fresh Gourmet Salsas are amongst the best you can buy outside a Mexican restaurant. Why not try some today and see if you don't agree?
