Do You Like Food In Tubes? La Tomate Spreads

On a recent trip to Montreal, we stopped into our favorite all-tomato store, La Tomate. It's a small shop that has tomato everything - sauces, jellies, soups, and even tomato-filled chocolates!

We snapped up these two tubes of Tomato & Blueberry Spread and Sundried Tomato & Port Jelly. We love the convenience of these tubes; it's very easy to squeeze out the desired amount on a piece of bread, a cracker, or a piece of cheese.

Plus, there's no spoon or spreader to wash afterwards. Bonus: the tubes are made of aluminum, so they're recyclable.

This made us start thinking about what other food in tubes we had, so we checked our refrigerator when we got home. We discovered that we had a tube of wasabi, a tube of harissa, a tube of anchovy paste and a tube of chestnut puree.

What sorts of food in tubes do you have, if any?
