Since McCormick has won approval for & could close today on the deal to purchase Lawry's, will they please bring back Spatini? Lawry's made the dumb move to stop producing this important part of my & I'm sure many other's spagehetti dinners. Please bring back Spatini McCormick!!!

Yes, bring back Spatini! Glamorous, it ain't; but I don't think they realize how many people actually used this stuff. Start talking to friends about cookin' Italian and someone will mention Spatini. Great, easy to use product. It actually worked, maybe that figured in its' demise.

I found big packs of it at a Saubels Market located in Shrewsbury in February. I bought all 8 of them & the cashier looked at me like I was crazy. They were like $5 each & I have seen them sell on eBay for $35-40 & up. They were big 20 oz. packs.

I loved Spatini - it was the best and I was sorry to see it go. Hopefully they will see the demand for it and bring it back.
