  1. The old saying: 'They don't make 'em like that anymore.' describes the new Port Side sardine offerings. They are now 2 or 3 big chunks of herring not little fishes. I suspect they're produced by the Brunswick cannery as they are identical to the Holmes brand of canned crap.

    1. Yeah, canneries are always messing with a good thing. I may do a revisit to a port side tin. Thanks for the heads up.
