Sharing the Joy of Cooking with Kids

In the News: Cooking with Store Brands

Cans of food with no brand labels

Our very own Allison Collins was featured in today’s Washington Post Food Section story about store brands. We’re always on the hunt for a bargain, but we make sure check the labels for ingredient and nutrition information.

“It comes down to a mix” of store and name brands for Allison Collins, who runs training and development for Tiny Chefs, which offers children’s cooking classes and camps. The Culinary Institute of America graduate says “I’ve never noticed a difference in quality. I like Trader Joe’s vanilla, and my husband loves Harris Teeter creamy peanut butter. It tastes just like the kind he had when he was little.”
