OVER ALL:
Two to a can, upper parts firm, lower part very soft. These sardines. Is one of the reasons I've started this blog. To remind me not to buy these again. I purchased a can of these previously then again a year later. The other reason for this blog was the closing of the US'S LAST sardine plant in Maine. Sauce is bland and thin fish odor hits you upon opening has a mild taste. Hopefully wont buy again. One sardine

Three large chunks of a fish. Fishy smell upon opening, good oil consistency, semi soft up top very soft mushy like at the bottom of the chunk.

  1. I have include this link in my complaint to Burnswick about selling chunks of fish as sardines. I would have sent my own pics but there is no way to send a pic file.

  2. Just had the Bruswick holmes sardines in soybean oil.
    Mine did come long ways in the can, two big pieces stuuffed in.
    I know why so big, at least one was pregnant. Huge egg sac, gross.
    The other seemed to have a drinking problem, it's liver was as big as some sardines I have seen (I assume it was liver, pale brown, smooth and mushy). Did not enjoy, and won't buy again unless very hungry and very poor.

    1. These are the same sardines sold by the Save A Lot food store chain with their house label of 'Port Side'. To be generous and kind I will simply say THEY SUCK!!!!!

    2. Port Side is the new Holmes, imagine that.
