Thread: Chicken of the Sea tuna

    Default Chicken of the Sea tuna

    This is the poorest excuse for chunk tuna I've ever seen. Mush, through
    and through. They're going to hear about this.

    Tuna salad with mac and peas, bound with homemade mayo, on top of some
    green stuff for dinner tonight. Maybe some Triscuits, and corn relish
    or pickles for HWSRN. Marble bundt cake for dessert.

    ooohh...yuck.... The ONLY one I use is StarKist Solid White
    Albacore packed in water. Chunk tuna is always mushy to me.

    I've also seen this situation with Bumble Bee and other major brands. It
    seems that what in years past was called "grated tuna" (have you ever seen
    "grated tuna" in supermarkets recently? I haven't, but I remember it from
    decades ago, when I used it as a pet cat treat) now qualifies as "chunk."

    It's worth investigating independent brands of solid white tuna, because
    some are excellent. Aldi's is.

    I've noticed that, too- you can't even drain the liquid out using the
    lid of the can. I'm lucky as one of our customers is Trident Seafood,
    and one of their products is Rubenstein's tuna. I can get it for
    $33.00 a case. I swear by that stuff, and it has to be packed in oil.
    Otherwise, Costco's solid tuna is pretty damn good.

    Let me guess, you accidentally picked up the water packed version,
    right? The water packed version should be banned, they're *CRAP*. Even
    the late great Julia Child said that.

    Oil pack tuna is the only kind worth using, and due to the ignorant
    public thinking somehow an oily fish like tuna is suddenly bad for you
    if it's packed in oil, the oil pack is in the minority on the shelves.

    Many years ago, I worked with an older guy, who had started out working
    in a tuna cannery. Told us how the *still* older workers would just
    bring a sandwich roll and maybe some spread in their lunchpails. Grab a
    can of red-meat off the line, and dump it on. (Yeah, even then, red was
    the catfood line. All prepared to the same standards, so why not?)

    I've noticed that for a long time and switched to solid white
    tuna. Even that wasn't all that anymore. I now buy either
    the Bumblebee stuff in the gold can or the Kirkland solid
    white albacore from Costco.

    Problem with albacore is the high mercury content. For
    this reason I prefer to buy skipjack tuna (sometimes it
    is labeled that way on the can, sometimes you can guess).

    Trouble, is, I really don't like the flavor of white tuna.

    How is the oil pack different besides the oil? I hate the oozey, sliminess
    of oil pack.

    IMO tuna packed in olive oil tastes good because olive oil
    tastes good, and tuna is a low-fat fish so the oil is
    complementary. Other than that I don't thinkthere's a difference.
