It`s funny.....I won`t eat fresh tuna, but I like canned tuna. I like most other fish to.

In 2013? That's the only one I see. Is one every five years acceptable?

Stop getting indignant over an offhand comment.

I simply mentioned it because I responded a couple of months ago in a thread you apparently missed.

But, hey, it looks like you want to fight--not learn about tuna.

A BIG +1.
Additionally, a detail that seems to elude most people is that the cans of tuna from Star-Kist and Bumblebee have decreased in weight over the years. By contrast, Costco's cans are the same larger size as in "The Good Old Days".

Hmmmm... Better quality tuna, more of the desired product in each can, and a lower price per ounce.
What's not to like about the altogether superior deal from Costco?

I like solid white in water but I prefer to get the extra low sodium cans. I used to get Starkist (Low Sodium Solid White Albacore Tuna in Water | StarKist) but it seems the quality has down hill lately.

Now I'll get the Sprouts brand Solid White No Salt Added Albacore. It tastes mild, no strong fishy taste and I just buy it at my local Sprouts. https://shop.sprouts.com/shop/categories/183

I think that there is a missing word in that sentence.
What would you like most other fish to do?

Memories of the 1970s...
Back in the '70s, an aunt--who was always looking for the absolute cheapest deal on everything--served us some tuna sandwiches. Because she was a "cat lady", and because the stuff that she served us REALLY reeked like cat food, I asked her... "Is it possible that you mixed-up the cat food and the human-grade canned tuna?".

Aunt Doris threw something at me, but--in truth--I never got an adequate response to my entirely-reasonable question.

I'm not big on fish, so I am crazy picky. I've tried buying all the normal brands and you open them up and it looks disgusting, and yes, they got smaller over the years. I'm sure TJ's is good, but we don't have them here.

Someone commented on soy, I looked at my Kirkland tuna and there is no soy.

You did not mention wether or NOT the "Canned Tuna" you refer to is Packed in OIL or Water. I have never experienced any tuna packed in water and I only buy "SOLID" regardless brand name.

Just maybe check out the difference.. compare"Oil" versus "Water" packed. Flaked tuna just does not fit intone of my recipes.. let alone using it insults/sandwiches.

Canned tuna in WATER for myself has always been my go to long term item that I go to when in a pinch.


Solid tuna ( in water) can be used in casseroles to actually taste like chicken IF broth/seasoning is used accordingly!!
