    These food critics want to compare mass-produced, frozen food to fresh, Grandma-made food. Ridiculous.

    i feel like they were kinda desrepectful because at the end of the day its food, you dont have to smell it or make faces to express that its bad.

    Y’all can’t say they are being extra or over reacting. Their food is their culture and they take pride in it so of course if they feel offended they should its fir them to decide not us

    Did Massimiliano go to UCSD? 🤔 There was a guy who looked exactly like him in my class about 3 years ago. He told me his name is Max and he’s an international student from Italy.

    I think that they were cheated... next time you make Pizza Bites use an Oven or Toaster Oven... not a microwave (it makes the crust and the everything better... less plasticy and soft) and that’s their favorite one! My Italian came from my Nona Rose 🌹

    Two things of note: 1) When they wrote "disappointed in Italian" He said "No raga ti prego" (which means no guys, please!) and 2) Italian food is very local and very much a specialty per region. Ingredients are fresh and simple. Frozen food is not fresh or local, so it is very difficult to get it to taste good. Frozen food is better when it is a stew, soup, or sauce simply because it masks its frozen flavor--as an example I wonder if Trader Joe's made ribollita (a Tuscan soup) if it would get a higher score? Anyways, if you want quick Italian food, I'd recommend just making a simple pasta (using the brand De Cecco or a similar high quality brand) and San Marzano tomatoes; easy and delicious!

      @Nicole Valle Gross no non sono americani, non so se vivono là, ma anche se vivono negli USA non saranno mai americani, sono italiani nati e cresciuti in Italia, che prendano la cittadinanza americana o meno non importa, i loro figli se nasceranno in USA saranno americani, loro invece sono italiani, è così che funziona.

    • Nicole Valle Gross

      @SoulF15 beh capito. ma sono ora americani no? abitano negli stati uniti. adesso sono americani di italia. non come americani come hai detto tu, che non sanno un cazzo d'italia.

      Questi sono Italiani veri, non americani di lontane e parziali origini italiane che non sanno nulla dell'Italia.

    I would not eat this Italian food from Trader Joe. I rather eat the homemade from scratch just the way my uncle who is also Italian. Every time I go home for visit , so he asks me if I go out somewhere or stay home so he can cook some Italian meal . I said definitely stay home , he make some homemade Italian meal.😁😁😁😁
