  • I buy frozen; they taste better and don't come from cans poisoned with BPA

  • I buy some of both. We like frozen best for most veggies, but we prefer canned green beans.

  • Frozen. They are actually fresher than canned. They are flash frozen the day they're picked and shipped to stores in a refrigerated truck.

    Frozen taste better because they are fresher and because they aren't all mushy from the canning process and sitting the the water they cook them in. The only canned veggies I buy on a rare occasion are mushrooms and beets.

  • My husband insists on veggies from the can (with the water too). I only eat frozen and fresh.

  • Frozen are cheaper and fresher. I get canned green beans for casseroles and such, but mostly frozen. I've only been doing fresh fruit, but I'm about to start going more with frozen to save $$.

  • I only buy the Leseur baby peas in a can, they are fabulous, and they MUST be Leseur... sometimes I'll also buy canned corn for a corn pudding recipe. Frozen I usually buy spinach and sometimes broccoli, that's it...the rest is all fresh.

  • We prefer frozen if we can't get fresh.
