OVER ALL:Four to a can, would guess the oil floating in the spring water would be the natural oil of the sardine. The sardines was very soft almost mushy soft. Decent flavor, kind of a being at the ocean after taste. Personal preference, to mushy for myself. Out of 5 sardines I give it a 2.

OVER ALL:Five to a can. Does not look appealing at all. "SELECT SMALL" Who the hell they trying to fool. Smoke flavor hits you on first bite,takes away from the fish. Actually has a fishy after taste, not a pleasant one. Was very disappointed. I would not recommend. 1 sardine is all it shall receive.

However these taste much better, as if they were done by two different canneries. No over pungent after taste, smoke still covers up the sardine taste, only a hint of fishy after taste. Out of 5 sardines, I give it a 2.

Can't really taste the fish for the hot sauce. But that's OK, some of the best hot sauce I've tasted from a sardine can. Out of 5 sardines, I give it a 4.

N/A at this time.

PRODUCT OF: CANADA

INGREDIENTS: SOYBEAN OIL

PRICE: .79

OVER ALL: A strong fishy aroma upon opening. Really soft fish, not spiny at all. A mild tasting sardine. Not as bland as other oil packed sardines. The fish was not swimming in oil, seems they put as little oil as possible in the can. If you like the oil these are not for you. Did have one overlooked sardine in the can, one still possessed its entire tail. Will give these guys a strong 2 1/2 sardines out of 5.

BEACH CLIFF: IN SOY BEAN OIL


APPEARANCE:



NUTRITION:

PRODUCT OF: CANADA

INGREDIENTS: Soybean Oil,Salt

PRICE: .99

OVER ALL: A decent sardine, a little on the bland side for my self. Would be good to add to a salad or a spread or to people who eat bland foods...A classic sardine taste, not to spiny. They've already started shipping and putting fish into Beach Cliff cans, that was once a product of America. Guess they need to take the American flag down from the Beach cliff site.
I give it two out of 5 sardines..

APPEARANCE:


NUTRITION:


PRODUCT OF: AMERICA

INGREDIENTS:Soybean Oil, Chili Peppers, Salt

PRICE:.99

OVER ALL: There were only 3 to the can, unlike the Beach Cliff from Canada. They were very firm, not mushy/soft at all. Little too salty for my taste, (I'm not a salt eater at all, I'm all about peppers and other spices, so what may be salty to me , may not be salty to others.) Was very impressed with the heat from the chilies, Not to hot yet not like eating a plain green pepper ether.Was impressed with the bed of chillies the fish laid upon as well. Over all I like this combo, I keep some of these in my locker at work always.These are really good cheap sardines that can be put into almost every thing. From 1 to 5 Sardines I give it a 3 1/2
