Victoria Fine Foods

*Disclaimer - I received the items mentioned below, free of charge, for review purposes. In no way did this alter my review.  All of my opinions expressed in this post are one-hundred percent honest and true.*

Victoria Fine Foods is not just a brand ,but also a tradition that has been around for eighty years now.  They strive to provide their customers with superior quality, consistency, and taste.  Victoria products can be located in most all major supermarkets across the United States. You will find they offer a wide selection of delicious sauces, gourmet spreads, herbs & spices, and many more specialty foods. 



It can be hard locating comfort foods that are great vegan alternatives, so I am sure many of you will be pleased to hear they offer a special line of vegan sauces. In addition to vegan sauces, they also offer wide selection of many other delightful sauces including specialty sauces. I was actually very intrigued by their wide range of sauces, because they offer just about any sauce you could think of. It was hard selecting just one sauce because they all sound so good, but I ended up choosing the Bolognese Meat Sauce.

The combination of hearty meat mixed with their traditional marinara sauce yields one of the most palette satisfying sauces ever.  They combine imported Italian tomatoes, fresh spices, and appetizing beef to create Victoria Bolognese Meat Sauce.  It may not be homemade, but it doesn't mean it doesn't have to taste homemade! I recently heated some up and poured it over fine angel hair pasta, and the result was mouth satisfying pasta!

Another item I chose was the Victoria Greek Olives. They are imported straight from Greece. Many of you may not know this but I am a quarter Greek myself, so I am quite familiar with many Greek foods, including Kalamata olives. They have a very unique taste that is very different than your traditional black olives. If you haven't tried Kalamata olives you should know that they have a very strong salty flavor. Honestly, I am quite fond of Kalamata Olives. 

I personally enjoy Kalamata olives by themselves, but they are a staple in many Greek salads and antipasto platters. I really enjoyed the Victoria Greek Olives, which tasted very fresh, by the way. Of course when my father came by, he had to try a few and he really enjoyed them, as well. They come in a glass jar that can easily be stored in the refrigerator after opening them.

BUY IT: You can find Victoria Fine Foods products in most all major supermarkets in the USA.

I can't say that I've ever noticed this brand before. I don't go near vegan products, but my sister in law is one, so I will have to tell her about these.

I know first hand how hard it is to locate foods that I am able to eat. Now, since my Hubs has started eating more like I do, I have an even harder time. Going to check to see if I can find Victoria Fine Foods

This sauce does sound delicious. We have an olive lover in the house, I'd def. pick this up to try if I saw it in the store.

I haven't seen this brand yet. But I would love to try the meat sauce with the marinara blend. That is definitely my favorite pasta sauce.

I am a fan of Kalamata olives myself. I need to try theirs.

You know, I've seen these on my store's shelves, but I haven't tried them yet. They do sound really good. I may have to pick some up for our super bowl party this year.

I'm going to get some of that sauce for my boyfriend. It sounds exactly like what he'd like.

I would love to try those olives. I used to get some really good ones locally but the store closed. I make an olive salad and want good quality olives for in it.

Amy said...

My good friend is 100% Greek. I bet he'd love the Kalamata Olives too! I've never heard of them until now, but I think I may need to look for them for our next family get together. That way we can all try them.
