I love this sauce. I can mix it with anything and it makes it better, deeper, richer. But guess what? Because I like it so much, Trader Joe’s has discontinued this Marinara Sauce. Why not put a knife in my heart?!!! I don’t get it. TJ has carried it like Old Faithfull. Now they discontinue it?!!! I take it personally. Why? Why? Why?
– October 7, 2019
This is my favorite sauce and now Trader Joes discontinued it. I’m very sad please bring it back!!!!
– October 8, 2019
This sauce was my all time favorite. Bring it back, please!!
– October 9, 2019
Definitely need to bring it back! 🙂 Please!

Is by far the best product on the market. My Mother always thought TJ’s was too far for her to go to, until I introduced her to the Tuscan Marinara. Now it’s discontinued. I’m not interested in the current alternative available at TJ’s. It’s not even a contender. I’m hopeful that such a quality product has cause for them to bring it back. I’d payore for it. It’s worth it.
– October 19, 2019
Please bring this sauce back! Such a good value and a tremendous sauce that’s been my standard sauce for YEARS. Yes, I would pay more for it just to get it back on the shelves.
If there’s an extra case laying about somewhere, let me know – I’ll pay for it.
– October 20, 2019
Have they bloody lost their collective minds? This sauce is by far the best product for prepared red sauce on the market ANYWHERE and they’ve decided to discontinue it, without cause I might add. I’m completely befuddled. It was my main reason for shopping there!!! WTH is wrong with the decision makers at TJs?

Why have you discontinued. Please bring it back!! 5Stars
– October 20, 2019
TJ broke my heart again. Discontinued the best premade marinara anywhere I’ve found. Please bring it back.
– October 21, 2019
I agree with all of the above. TJ’s…why is yet another amazing product on your hit list? PLEASE bring this one back. This is an amazing, savory sauce that is made of simple ingredients. It has been a staple in my pantry for years!
– October 26, 2019
my favorite as well! I found out today that they discontinued! I almost cried! I used my last can last week. I make my own sauce alot. However, for a qui k meal during the week I use it as a base for so may dishes! Pleass bring back! I was just bragging about it too last week with some coworkers. I made a wonderful vodka sause with it on bowtie. It was so easY, fast and delicious!
– October 27, 2019
TJ’s!!! Please bring back your wonderful Tuscano Marinara. It is so so good.
– October 28, 2019
This has been my go-to sauce for years. I tried the replacement one in the green can and it’s bland compared to this one.
PLEASE BRING IT BACK!!!
– October 29, 2019
I’m so sad- I have used this for years- So bummed
– October 31, 2019
As noted by everyone above, Trader Joe’s Low Fat Tuscano Marinara Sauce is the best and has been a staple in my pantry for years.
PLEASE BRING IT BACK!!!!!!
– November 1, 2019
I cannot believe it!!! They discontinued this!! It’s been our staple for YEARS too. I never leave the store without four cans of it, if not six. I tried the green can of traditional marinara sauce and it is NOT the same. So many people I know recommended this and use it. Why?!! Please bring it back.
– November 2, 2019
This sauce was a mainstay in my pantry for eons. I’m crestfallen with it’s discontinuation!!!
– November 7, 2019
My favorite sauce. Please bring back!!
– November 12, 2019
It’s the best. It is my goto sauce. It has great flavor and nice texture (a little chunky). Perfecto.
I went to the local TJs planning to buy a can to use as a base for a bolognese sauce. With none on the shelf, I bought the TJs’ green can. Big disappointment.
Bring it back. Please.
– November 14, 2019
I’m a regular shopper at Trader Joes, and do enjoy their products. I purchase your Low Fat Tuscano Marinara Sauce (Red Can), because of my stomach issues. When I use this product, without tomato puree, I do not have the stomach issues that other sauces cause me. Lately, I have noticed that the product is no long carried on your shelves. I would like you to bring this back to the products you sell. Thank You.
– November 15, 2019
UGGGGHHHHHH!!! Went to TJ’s to buy my 4 cans of Tuscano Marinara and was told it was discontinued. This was THE BEST tomato sauce found in a can or a jar. And this is from an italian woman who has made my on sauce until I found this sauce about 5yrs ago. Please bring it back!
– November 16, 2019
Please bring back the Trader Joe’s Low Fat Tuscano Marinara Sauce. It was my go to such a disappointment it was discontinued.
– November 19, 2019
This is the best sauce I’ve ever had that came out of a can. I’m went in to my locat TJ’s and asked what happened to this sauce and oddly nobody knew what I was talking about… like the product never existed. Come to find out it’s been pulled. Well, I guess that’s one less store I need to visit every week.
– November 19, 2019
Tuscano Marinara is the BEST sauce ever. Why, why, why would TJ discontinue this excellent product?? I nearly cried in the store last week when I realized it was gone. Seriously, my life will not be the same. I’m mad as hell and I can’t take it anymore. Really! It feels like my best friend moved away. Please have a heart, TJ, and bring back the Tuscano Marinara.
– November 21, 2019
Bring it back! Bring it back! Bring it back! Trader Joe’s, you’re blowing it! Its obviously loud and clear, your customers want this product on the shelves. This has been a pantry staple for me since the day I first tried it.
– November 22, 2019
Wow! Surprised and disappointed to learn that Trader Joe’s Tuscano Marinara has been discontinued. This was BY FAR the best store bought tomato sauce ever! It was the basis for all of my Italian recipes. I always stocked up on it every time I went to TJ’s. I now have one less reason to shop there and will need to find a suitable replacement elsewhere as none of TJ’s other offerings measure up.
– November 22, 2019
This sauce is by far the best canned marinara on the market. It stood apart from the others because it doesn’t have that generic taste that all canned or jarred sauces have. Why would you discontinue it when you have so many others that taste generic? The marinara in the green can is just like the canned hunts or Del Monte, great value brand which are far cheaper that what you sell it for and in no way compares to the discontinued product. This has been a staple in our house for years and I’ve turned so many people onto it. I make my own as I have for many many years but this was always my go to when I wasn’t in the mood to make it myself. Please bring it back.
– November 23, 2019
BRING IT BACK
– November 29, 2019
PLEASE BRING THIS BACK!!!! I’ve taste tested EVERY TJ’s marinara sauce and nothing comes close to this…WHY would you discontinue the best marinara product you carry???? If you don’t plan on bringing it back can you at least give us the recipe???
– December 1, 2019
I swear to god, TJ if you don’t come with the sauce I will shop at whole foods. We both don’t want that.
– December 7, 2019
I could not believe when I went to the store the last time to buy this sauce and was not there anymore. I usually buy entire cases at the time because I love it so much. How could you discontinue one of the most popular items at Trader Joes??? Please bring it back!
– December 8, 2019
Trader Joe’s PLEASE bring the Toscana Marinara sauce back. It is my favorite marinara sauce and irreplaceable. Please bring it back. Charge more if you must, just bring it back.
– December 11, 2019
Please bring the Toscana Marinara sauce back. It is my favorite and I am so disappointed it is no longer available. Why would you do this when so many people still love it!!!!
– December 13, 2019
My favorite marinara of all time! Why discontinue such a wonderful product? If a production problem is to blame, find another producer! Soon, please!
– December 20, 2019
I join the thousands of devoted TJ Tuscano Marinara Sauce users! This product is exceptional…and I would like to know why they would allow this product to be dropped. A TJ manager told me that the company that makes it and sells it to TJ is responsible for the discontinuation. Obviously, this product has a devoted following and it seems crazy to not make it. The TJ manager acknowledged that this sauce is like that of his Italian grandmother! The other sauce TJ offers is terrible! I returned it for a refund…the above manager agreed it doesn’t begin to compare to Tuscano Marinara Sauce. There must be a way to bring it…or find it elsewhere. I will work on this…!
– December 22, 2019
The best. Ever. Why oh why is it gone?!?
– December 23, 2019
Please bring back the Tuscano Marinara sauce. Please, please, please. Even if you have to raise the price bring it back. It is the best sauce on the market!! I was crushed to find out it had been discontinued.
Leslie Cross Thompson
– December 28, 2019
Why remove a product that brings people in to TJs for just that item and oh btw I’ll pick up a few other things while I’m here and now my basket is full.
There are very few things that I can only get at TJ. This was one of them. I won’t need to shop there nearly as often. And now I have to make my own sauce again:(
Hope you are listening to your customers and will consider bringing it back.
– December 30, 2019
Please bring back Tuscano Marinara Sauce. I wrote to TJ’s months ago and was promised a response. NOPE! I don’t know who made this for you, but its time to kiss and make up and get it back on the shelves. Read all 38 pleas…I know I am not the only shopper that is sad.. FYI when I found out I went to every store and cleared their shelves…and gave it for Christmas presents. I was popular!!!
– January 1, 2020
Trader Joe’s please bring back your Tuscano Marinara! I had finally found the best sauce in a can/jar and have been recommending it to everyone.
A very disappointed TJ’s fan
– January 2, 2020
PLEASE BRING THIS BACK!!! My family has loved this marinara sauce for literally YEARS. I am crestfallen – I haven’t trusted any other sauce since … forever. Trader Joe’s, what happened? This is one of your best products and “poof” it’s gone and no one is talking. What??????????
– January 2, 2020
I am so disappointed that TJ’s has discontinued this marinara sauce. I am petitioning to have them bring it back.
– January 4, 2020
I am so happy to see others’ disappointments in TJ discontinuing this wonderful sauce. I felt as though it was a personal hit to my pantry! Bring back this product please
– January 5, 2020
I have two cans left and just found out it is discontinued! Nooooo! Please bring this wonderful marinara back!
– January 6, 2020
Tuscano has been our goto sauce for years. We had one can left and did a taste comparison with TJ Marinara sauce in a similar can. Tuscano smells better, looks better and tastes better! Now, my last can is gone. Please bring it back.
– January 18, 2020
Your decision to discontinue the Tuscano Marinara really sucks, to use an impolite vernacular. Certainly there are still wonderful tomatoes, spices and cans available, so why did you choose to stop this great product. Please consider all the pleas and crank up the factory again.
– January 18, 2020
Every time they move something to the bottom shelf it gets discontinued. This was was a major mistake. It was so fresh tasting. Next to go will be the canned marinara in the green labeled can because they have moved it to the bottom shelf, if like that one better stock up. I don’t think they get how annoying this is.
– January 19, 2020
Is it going to be brought back? Are their any updates? I’m freaking.
– January 23, 2020
I’ll join the chorus of others urging Trader Joes to PLEASE bring back this sauce! Had I known it was threatened, I would have stocked up, but it’s been a TJ’s staple for many years. It’s the best sauce for making lasagna, spaghetti and so much more. I love it when I add meat and veggies, and I love it by itself. None of the other TJ’s marinaras come close.
– January 29, 2020
Can’t believe this is discontinued. It’s been a staple in my kitchen for YEARS. The first thing I went for every time I went to TJ’s. Have a dozen options in jars but had to eliminate a staple? Glad to see I’m not the only customer angry about this.
– February 1, 2020
I completely agree — it was the best tomato sauce in the store. I really liked the predominance of herbs. Can’t imagine why they would discontinue it. PLEASE BRING IT BACK!
– February 3, 2020
BRING IT BACK! BRING IT BACK! Tuscano Marinara sauce has been a staple in my pantry for 20 years! It was by far the best marinara base on the market anywhere, so versatile!
If you buy it, we will come!
– February 6, 2020
My nearest Trader Joes is an hour and a half away and last time I was there I got three of these. The best non-homemade sauce I have found. I went back two weeks ago and it was pure devastation, bring it back! Oh, and come to Bloomington, Indiana!!
– February 10, 2020
OMG I MISS THIS SAUCE! My daughters and I have used it for years and we are heartbroken it has been discontinued. I haven’t found anything that comes close either in Trader Joe’s or at the supermarket. I hope the powers that be will bring back my beloved sauce!
– February 25, 2020
I love this sauce. It’s why I go to Trader Joe’s. Bring it back please.
– February 27, 2020
I was devastated that this sauce was discontinued as it was a KILLER sauce!
Little did I know how “killer” it was. At over 1800mg of sodium per serving it is over the American Heart Association’s ideal limit for the average person, even worse for older people. Now looking into lower sodium alternatives.
– February 28, 2020
I adored this sauce! Haven’t found a suitable replacement and I’m super sad :(. TJ’s, please bring it back. Pretty please??
– March 2, 2020
This was by far my favorite, I’m so sad that they discontinued it and none of there other sauces are even close to the flavor and texture!
– March 3, 2020
I too am missing Tuscano marinara sauce. I relied on it for many years. The other marinara sauces at Trader Joes do not compete. Please bring it back!
– March 3, 2020
I keep looking for it. I am sad that it is discontinued. It was so good. Can’t they bring it back please?
– March 8, 2020
Just one more voice crying in the dark I guess. But, if there really is strength in numbers, add me to the list of the others wailing over the loss of the Trader Giotto’s Tuscano Marinara Sauce from the shelves.
If wholesale cost is the issue, raise the retail. I, for one, certainly won’t mind !
– March 20, 2020
Possible (indirect) tariff issue as suggested by management in Everett, WA? If so, we know who to thank…
This sauce is beyond perfect! I can only hope they can get it back somehow or another. I’ve been buying it for a good 40 years (yeah, I’m that old…).
– April 1, 2020
TJ’s carried two canned marinara sauces. I bought both and combined them for my sauce, with additions, of course. They both were delicious. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE BRING THEM BACK!
– April 3, 2020
Im from Calif and bought it there so was disappointed when I couldn’t find the sauce here in Reno. Please bring it back. I’ve read all the reviews and so many people want it back. Please help us.
– April 6, 2020
Please do bring it back! This product is one of the top reasons I shop your stores. Most of my T.J. shopping lists for years have begun with Tuscano Marinara Sauce. Now I’ve lost my #1 reason to go in.
– April 20, 2020
RIP Trader Giotto’s Low Fat Tuscano Marinara.
This truly is THE BEST Marinara sauce. I never used anything else as nothing could actually compare to the rich flavor of the Tuscano… It is a sad day.
(If you can bring it back, it would be much appreciated!!!) It was in my cart each and every time I shopped at your stores.
– April 20, 2020
Yes, please bring it back. We’ll pay more. It’s wonderful!
– April 22, 2020
I’m so so sad! Please Please Please bring it back! I have used it for years and now it’s gone!
Please bring it back!!!!
– April 23, 2020
I love both of the canned marina sauces.
I can’t believe they have been discontinued.
The jarred tomato sauces are soupy and thin when compared to the lovely thick texture of the canned sauces.
BRING THEM BACK.
– May 7, 2020
Why in the name of God did you guys get rid of this sauce? By reading all the reviews it would seem everyone gives it a 5 star and yet you guys stop carrying it. What gives? I’m Italian and this is by far the best base sauce I have ever bought! Bring it back please.
– May 10, 2020
Ditto to every one of the reviews above.To not have a reason for your faithful customers that have bought this sauce for the last 20 years is just not acceptable. I asked if corporate could tell us why and they said that corporate wont even tell the stores. Thats poor upper management to not tell your stores why. Reminds me of BIG BROTHER! Another employee said it was because the supplier raised the price.This was not only high quality sauce but a great deal. I told the store to please raise the price and bring it back! they did the same thing with the cinnamon sugar grinder that sold for 20 years! So FN Sad! Now they sell it on Amazon for a ridiculous price
– May 10, 2020
Disappointed as well. But like many products at TJs and elsewhere, there’s some company that’s sourcing it… and many alternatives…
Consider Stanislaus Trattoria or Pomarola
Mary R Epler
– May 22, 2020
Please, please, please, bring this sauce back! This was the only reason I braved shopping during the pandemic to go get their sauce and then it wasn’t there. Very very disappointed. Trader Joe’s come are you listening???
– May 22, 2020
Does anyone know which of their other sauces compare? I’m sure they won’t be nearly as good but which is the best one to buy now?
– May 24, 2020
Tuscano marinara sauce has always been the only sauce my family used. We used it not only on pasta but also as base for salsa. My kids grew up on this sauce Now we can’t find replacement. Nothing tastes similar a nothing close to texture. What happened in production? Please bring this sauce back.
– May 24, 2020
Please bring it back!
– June 1, 2020
Missing this staple in my cupboard! The only store bought sauce I love, please don’t make me cook my own from scratch again!!
– June 4, 2020
I don’t know how to live without this perfect marinara sauce. Please for the love of all that is good and holy, please bring back the Trader Giotto’s low fat Tuscano Marinara!!!!!
– June 5, 2020
Bring it back!
– June 9, 2020
we live on this sauce . sniff.
– June 11, 2020
Oh man…now both the Tuscano AND the Green can marinaras are discontinued!!! Spaghetti sauces will NEVER BE THE SAME!
DO SOMETHING PLEASE!!!
– June 11, 2020
Oh, come on guys. Please bring this sauce back! It was by far the very best marinara sauce on the market. My wife and I would used to drive and hour and 20 minutes to get this sauce from Trader Joe’s. Why in the world would you stop carrying it????
– June 17, 2020
I can’t believe all the canned tomato sauces are gone. These were the best! I deploy overseas every few years and since the early 2000s I also made sure to pack a few cans of this when I needed a taste of home.
Please, please bring this back (and the breaded eggplant cutlets while you are at it!)
– June 23, 2020
We love this stuff and use it on pizza and spaghetti. Please bring it back!!!! The nearest TJ to our house is 60 miles away. Made the trip and hoped to stock up. No sauce.
– June 27, 2020
Please please please bring this item back! My spaghetti just is not the same.
– July 8, 2020
Best tasting, seems like it was freshly cooked. Why did they do this. Is there anyone in corporate to contact to request its return.
– July 23, 2020
This was one of the main reasons I shop at Trader Joe’s, that and the EVO, and like others was a wonderful base for lots of dishes. Please bring it back.
– July 23, 2020
So, just tell us who is carrying this wonderful marinara sauce so we can all shop at THAT store! Really, TJ’s!!!
– August 5, 2020
Are you completely out of your bloody mind? The two marinara can sauces have been a major resident of my pantry for well over two decades. Why are you alienating your best loyal customers by discontinuing these two sauces? Social media is a powerful tool to boycott Trader Joe’s until you bring this sauce back. We will give you 30 days to restock your shelves or suffer sales loss to the point of bankruptcy….
– August 5, 2020
Bring back the two can marinara sauces or lose customers. Is that simple? Have you gone mad??!!!!
– August 19, 2020
Please please please bring back the Tuscano and the green can marinara sauces! They’re the best I’ve found, and the main reason I continue to make the trek to Trader Joe’s even though I no longer live near one. Been my pantry staple for so many years, I am so disappointed in TJ’s right now.
– August 20, 2020
PLEASE BRING THIS BACK!! So very disappointed that this not in stores. It was great for sausage sandwiches and a quick meal if needed.
– August 21, 2020
PLEASE BRING THIS BACK!!! This is the only sauce I bought until it was discontinued, even making trips to Trader Joe’s just for this product. How can you ignore so many unhappy customers?
– August 21, 2020
– August 21, 2020
This was the greatest canned marinara sauce around! I’ve used it for over 10 years .
I don’t know how Trader Joe’s discontinued it and how they did not introduce a replacement! Very disappointed and I hope they bring it back.
– August 23, 2020
Until landing on this post, I just thought I was having bad luck with the Toscano Marinara frequently being out of stock. I asked a staff person who wasn’t sure what I was referring to, but said some items weren’t in stock due to COVID-19 supply issues. Now I find it may never come back?? It was my go-to for pizza sauce, meat sauce, lasagna, etc. Why on earth was it discontinued? Please bring it back ASAP.
– September 1, 2020
I have been buying this sauce for 20 years… sold it to so many family members and friends with the caption …”Yes, its in a can and incredible” …would open a can and just eat it with a fork… TRADER JOES …WHAT ARE YOU THINKING!!!! Discontinued???????? I’m **&^^ OFF!!!! I shopped with you specifically for this product and just happened to fill my cart with other goodies… but now … change your name to Aldis.
Dissappointed in Delaware
– September 15, 2020
WHY???? No answer from TJ’s on this thread, can we get some info please. This is my go to for so. many years. I even had it shipped to me when I lived in Austin cause I couldn’t get it. Now what? Haven’t found anything close. Anyone else have a suggestion?
– October 2, 2020
There’s not much that unites this country these days… but looking at these reviews shows that this tomato sauce really could. But it’s discontinued. I rarely write reviews, but I had to find out what happened to my favorite sauce, and am compelled to add my voice to this community. I have tried almost every other TJs prepared tomato sauce to replace this and am incredibly disappointed each time. I grew up on this sauce and has been a staple in my household for years. The perfect balance of acidity, salt, tomato-iness… for the sake of Americans, please bring this perfect sauce back.
– October 6, 2020
I was so happy to stumble across all of these reviews. I was devastated when I found that Trader Joe’s had discontinued this marinara. It was excellent and I am heartbroken.
– October 14, 2020
A manager at my local Trader Joe’s in CA told me that they discontinued this (and the other canned marinara with the green label, which was my personal fave) because the manufacturer actually stopped making it! He said that TJ’s was very disappointed and taste-tested many different sauces to try to find a replacement, but nothing else was as good.
I don’t know why TJ’s wouldn’t make this known, even by posting something on their website — some transparency around that would at least provide some justification and explanation to customers!
– November 23, 2020
TJ’s please bring this marinara back? You have had it for several years. There is nothing comparable to replace it in your stores, I have tried the others on the shelf in your stores and they are not good. Please, please, please bring it back? Or maybe start calling your store Aldi’s
– November 27, 2020
Of all the disappointments I’ve had with TJ’s discontinuing products I’ve fallen in love with, this one was the hardest to handle…NOT THE TUSCANO MARINARA SAUCE!!! Please Trader Joes, I love you and will love you so much more the day I return to find old faithful back on the shelves!
– December 1, 2020
I am sooooo disappointed this has been discontinued!!!I also miss the olive oil with the peppery finish ….which was top rated by consumer magazine….whyyyyy?It so fruity and lovely.
Please bring Back these …..my Italian in-laws from Italy thought the pasta sauce was my own …..I did not lie.They went to TJ’s in Manhattan and purchased……now no more and we are kicking ourselves for not sticking up .I have one can left ……flanked by candies burning……❤️
– December 9, 2020
We all think glass jars are better than cans, right? Yep! Did this wide-held belief make it a slow mover? Not according to the comments above. I have purchased all the canned sauces at other grocery stores trying to identify who made it for you…no joy. Alas, I can’t go backwards…Now, I just buy the stewed tomatoes and add the garlic, oregano and onions, myself. Still love ya, Joe
– December 16, 2020
When I finally used my last can, to my horror, I have found out the tragic news, that this perfect sauce is gone forever. I raised my kids on this sauce. It is literally the *only* red sauce that my daughter will eat. I don’t cook – hate it. My family and I rely on TJ’s to make things that are delicious and healthy, in spite of my touch. Now what am I supposed to do? This was literally so PERFECT!! Flavor and texture are amazing, *and* it was low fat, low sodium, fair amount of fiber, and very little added sugar. It checked all my boxes, and tasted fabulous anyway! Come on TJ’s, have a heart. Look at all these posts… at least get us a recipe from the mfg. (that stopped making it according to another post) and either find another mfg to make it again (my preference) or give us the recipe – PLEASE. I am begging. Consider it a well deserved reward for surviving this horrible year of pandemic. We can’t even eat our favorite comfort food anymore. It’s like another sick joke of 2020 – except it seems this nightmare started a year ago. Look how happy you could make everyone! Like another posted above, this sauce seems to be able to unite all who have tasted it. This is just mean spirited to discontinue such a perfect staple. Now what? (still begging) I have been heartbroken about a lot of discontinued items, but this one is by far, the worst and has the biggest impact on the whole family. There has got to be another way.
– January 15, 2021
I tried to find a copycat recipe for the marinara sauce but had no luck. If anyone finds a substitute , please post it here for those of us who are still having withdrawals. Life will never be the same.
– January 22, 2021
When are you bringing Tuscan Marina Sauce back? That is the question. I used to buy it buy the case, it often was hard to get that much, but I also relied on it. Why would you remove it from your product line? Listen to your customers, we ALL want it back!
– March 25, 2021
I made my lasagna without the Tuscano marinara sauce and it was just not as good with their regular marinara sauce. If anyone has found anything close, please list it.
– May 2, 2021
What kind of madness??!! Bring back the best sauce EVER!! For crying out loud!! I tried the “traditional marinara.” It was mostly water. Yuck.
