When is comes to pasta sauce, everyone has their favorite, but if you’re favorite isn’t RAO’s, then you’re wrong. I’m sorry! I know it’s expensive, and I know a lot of people won’t even try it for that reason, but it is hands down the best pasta sauce you can buy on the shelf.
Don’t believe me? When I first met my fiancé, he told me he hated pasta. After deliberating whether or not this relationship could now work, as I love pasta… I decided to test this proclamation. I started making all types of pasta dishes for him, and wouldn’t you know… he loves them! Why? Because of the RAO’s sauce.
This week, it was announced that in a massive deal, Campbell Soup Company had acquired ROA’s sauces parent company Sovos Brands Inc for a whopping $2.7 BILLION dollars.
I have some opinions about this.
First of all, Campbells… Don’t mess this up!
I will be so upset if Campbell messes with the recipe in any way. Don’t cut costs or corners or change a thing, and I will be happy. Otherwise, Campbell’s will have a lot of people upset with this.
Here’s the pro to this though…
With Campbell’s now owning the company, I’ve got to imagine they are trying to think about all the new products they can create and release using RAO’s sauce. I’m totally into that idea. Imagine more RAO’s snacks, frozen meals, and other items you can get easily at a grocery store.
We’ll have to wait and see what will happen, but all I know is that recipe better not change one bit or else I’m gonna have to find a new way to convince my fiancé he loves pasta again.
