PRODUCT OF:
Caught in Maine, produced in Canada

INGREDIENTS:
Sardine fillets, Cracked Pepper, Salt

PRICE: 2.00

OVER ALL:
Slight hint of a smokey flavor aroma upon opening the tin. The skin are still present. Several large fillets to the tin. This appears to what becomes LARGE sardines. Instead of calling them boneless sardines they just split em and call them fillets. Making them all fancy. A semi firm texture, the pepper is very detectable. It really adds a good flavor to the fish. A very mild tasting fish. No fishy after taste nor taste at all. A very good tin of fish. Would be a very good tin for a first timer wanting to eat sardines. If you like the sardine taste and know you are eating sardines, then you won't like these. I'll give these guys 4 1/2 sardines.

OVER ALL:
A very faint smoke aroma hits you when opened. Fish are a little on the soft side. They have a pleasant taste, a tad salty. Six to seven large fillets to the tin. The skin is not firm at all. They are all packed skin down, little slippery in the mouth. A good decent tin of meat. Four sardines.

OVER ALL:
No strong aroma upon opening. A very soft fish, falls apart while trying to get t out of the tin. Several large pieces of fillets in the tin. No mustard flavor at all. You would never know these where in mustard if it wasn't for the yellow hue and the fact the box says so. This tin of fish has no flavor at all. Just a tin of meat. Not a bad tin at all just not a flavorful tin at all. Would eat again, if i needed some type of filler in a recipe or the sorts. Two sardines

  1. Just tried the smoked version. Very good, sometimes smoked fillets can become overly firm or tough from spending a tad too much time in the smoker(Polar). These were almost perfect. At $2 a pop from Big Lots it's a deal. Am pretty sure these are made by Barr Harbor(spendy).

  2. They are pretty darn good why though do they have so much cholesteral! Oh well not like I'm having a heart attack. Delicious.

    1. But it is all good cholesterol. Sardines raise your HDL (good cholesterol) while lowering your LDL (Bad cholesterol)

  3. Just bought some at these at Big Lots in Mooresville, N.C. to add to a gift basket--my first impression was that they looked "gourmet", without the high price. With all the talk these days about fish oil, antioxidants and cholesterol, it seems like a great snack with benefits! Time to load up the pantry....Thanks for your informative website.

  5. Very good ! Just remember where you bought them because they are NOT sold in many grocers like Big-Y, Target,etc.. You will wonder where to get them again.
