The taste tests are in and celebrity-branded food…is just okay.
At least, that's what a new Consumer Reports taste test of 26 celebrity-branded food products says, majority of which tested comparably to much cheaper products from major companies like Kraft.
With the price increase and famous face, we expect the best, but celebrity-endorsed pasta sauce the likes of Emeril Lagasse or Paul Newman rated average on a scale from "Poor" to "Excellent".
Wolfgang Puck's minestrone soup tested as "good" (still behind "very good"), but to the chef's credit, his Tomato Basil Soup got an "excellent" rating and was called, "A soup to sip and savor."
Next time you're at Target and looking for tomato sauce, Giada De Laurentiis' tomato basil sauce is apparently an "excellent" choice and praised for its "buttery richness."
