II am so finished with OceanSpray cranberry sauce

Ok ... first I know some people consider home-made cranberry sauce far superior to canned. I am just not one of them. I love this stuff. Thanksgiving must have canned OceanSpray cut along the can lines.


Three problems this year

1. They changed the can.

Everyone knows the way to get cranbery sauce out of the can is to open the top and bottom and push the stuff out. They have new cans where the bottom cannot be easily opened ... turkey poop.

2. I read the ingrediant list this year

Corn syrup and high fructoce corn syrup. It would kill them to use sugar? If not, put out a more expensive version with real sugar.

3. There is little difference between the whole berry sauce and the jelled.

I needed both for different reasons. So I open the whole bery and it looked like the jelled. I looked at the label multiple times to make sure I opened the right can. If you break it up then it is sort of like whole berry.

Leave my cranberry sauce alone, Ocean Spray !!!

OK, it still tastes ok, but it makes me wonder how it would stand up against the original version.

Obviously OceanSpary would not quake in their boots about losing the business of the two or three cans I buy of the stuff. Still, it annoys me that next year I have to make it from scratch ... and it won't be jelled.
