In a recent cost comparison study Monterey Farms took a major brand of jarred artichoke hearts and compared them to ArtiHearts. While the jarred product was $1 less than Monterey Farms ArtiHearts, our product is 100% useable, ready to eat. The jarred product was filled with oil and brine and when that was removed there were 9 peices with hearts and leaves, some too tough to eat, compared to 20 peices of all-edible heart meat in the ArtiHearts. Monterey Farms ArtiHearts are truly the better value.
