Winco crushed pineapple review

in Pineapple
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
Winco brand canned crushed pineapple tastes excellent, currently. Perhaps the best on the market. It tastes like Hawaiian pineapple, but it's a product of the Philippines. The ingredients are pineapple, pineapple juice, and citric acid. The citric acid definitely improves the flavor. I love it. ...read more
