OVER ALL:
Here's another tin that says "Wild Caught" I can't help but laugh when I see this on the packaging. Smokey aroma very prominent upon opening, five loosely packed fish to the tin. The fish are a little on the soft side. Smoke flavor really over powers the fish. A fishy after taste attempts to be known, but is held at bay by the smoke flavor. A bitter almost off putting after taste. Would not eat again. No Sardines

    1. Shit I guess nobody's allowed a differing opinion in here? Get rid of the comments section if you don't want comments.

      Hmmm, I just bought a can of Pampa in Louisiana hot sauce. Glad I bought just one. May just wait till I'm bored before I get into it.

  2. Maybe the problem is that the country of origin is China. I've got great reservations about eating ANYTHING from that country because I don't trust the quality at all. Who knows what might be in the can. I've been thinking about throwing the can out without even opening it but I'll probably go ahead and open it tomorrow just to go through the experience of knowing how good or bad this stuff is.

    It will be my meal for tomorrow, so if I've got to throw it out then I'll be going hungry, again.

    1. True. Yes, I've gone that route, nothing worse than a bad tin on your lunch break.

  3. Tried the ones in brine. Two large fish in can with liquid. Very salty and dry texture (like overcooked chicken breast), Okay with onion, tomato and crackers, but probably would not buy again. Hard to believe there is 360 calories here; how do they calculate this?

    1. Pairing sardines with other ingredients, really helps out a unfavorable tin. calories are based on energy produced and all that scientific jargon.
