Walmart Great Value Restaurant-Style Medium Salsa Review
Walmart's Great Value Restaurant-Style Medium Salsa ($2 for a 24-ounce jar) has many pleasing attributes, including the fact that it is indeed a great value. It stands out from the crowd of bottled salsas at only 8 cents an ounce.
Of course, an appealing price alone wasn't enough to put this salsa on our shortlist. It took a consensus from our tasting panel -- who enjoyed the flavors of this "all-purpose salsa" with "good spice" -- to secure Great Value Restaurant-Style Medium Salsa a spot as one of our good cheap picks. Panelists warmed to its pungent aroma and tang of cumin and cilantro. With an over-fine tomato and veggie dice, the salsa bordered on "mushy" and hovered dangerously close to a "marinara sauce" consistency, but it was saved by virtue of its flavor profile.
On the Walmart website, reviewers praise Great Value Restaurant-Style Medium Salsa for packing zing and hearty tomato taste. It's rated an average of 4.9 out of 5 stars with a total of 15 reviews. Several consumers seem to prefer the crushed-tomato thickness of the Walmart-brand salsa to a chunkier makeup, claiming it spreads nicely and better coats chips. Consumers who want to take things up a notch can always boost the spice level with hot sauce or cayenne, as at least one reviewer recommends.
