All English Testimonials
On July 16, 2011 I had written the testimonial below on the Mi Sofrito Puro website and felt I needed to update and republish it here in English.
I'm so happy I don't have to do make my own sofrito anymore. It has always been a chore buying the ingredients, cleaning them, and then preparing them, not to mention that it tastes different every time I do it. Aggravating!!
I've tried other sofrito that are sold in supermarkets but, to be honest, my food tasted terrible after using those brands. My friend then told me about his product and brought me a pint. From the first day I used it I couldn't believe how good my food tasted. I have been using Mi Sofrito Puro now for about 9 years and EVERY liter, and now quart, tastes the same in every container! AMAZING!!!! You guys are the bomb.
By the way, I'm also excited that this is "Healthy Sofrito!" NO MSG and NO salt! Excellent! My husband has high blood pressure and cannot have salt! I also didn't know that GOYA Sofrito and GOYA Seasoning have MSG in the ingredients and I also noticed that some of the other sofrito companies also use MSG! Don't you know that this can kill us? Now I know why we were so tired after eating when I used him sofrito.
Due to your website, I don't cook with any other Sofrito. Thank you Marin Latin Foods for such an excellent product and the education it is providing to the Hispanic community! Keep going!
A VERY HAPPY WIFE
Hi. My name is Didi. I’m Puerto Rican and have always eaten authentic Latino food since I was a child. My mom and my grandma always cooked with homemade Sofrito, using their recipe straight from the island of Puerto Rico.
I was raised in Manhattan & Queens, New York and after marrying we decided to move to California. My mom had taught me how to make Sofrito but when I got to California there wasn’t a single store that carried the ingredients to make the Sofrito (and they still don’t). However, the good thing is that whenever my mom visited us she would always bring the sofrito ingredients with her and make a lot for us to store in the freezer, but unfortunately she passed away since then.
To make a long story short, I contacted my family in New York and learned about Mi Sofrito Puro. In November of 2019 I email Mr. Marin, the owner of this company, and asked him how I could purchase some. He sent it to me overnight just in time for Thanksgiving. After receiving it, and smelling it, I just knew that this Sofrito was AUTHENTIC! After cooking with it I literally started crying when eating because the food tasted exactly they way my mom and grandma’s food tasted. My family was so, so happy that I was finally cooking real tasting Latin Food.
Now I can buy Mi Sofrito Puro online and will never have to worry about not having any.
Thank you Mr. Marin for making REAL Sofrito and for bringing back so many great memories!
In November of 2019, before this website was available, Mr. Marin added me to the company eNewsletter and I am so glad he did. A few days later I received an email from the company to inform me that if I wanted they would make sure I received their Sofrito so I could use it for Thanksgiving. We eventually connected and as a present they also gave me their "Puerto Rican Style Pork Roast Rub" which they said will be released next year.
OMG!!!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! I made a HUGH pernil (roast pork) and it was incredible. It took me less time to season it than it has in the past, but it was the "Mi Sofrito Puro" that took it from a 10 to 100. I also used the Sofrito in my arroz con gandules and almost everything I cooked. My husband complemented me a million times and all my guests wanted to know what I put in the food that made it taste so good. I told them, so be expecting many of my friends and family to buy your products and Subscribe to your eNewsletter.
