  1. i just got a few of this brand in water. don't like them so much, tastes more like tuna, and dry. these were boneless and skinless. very firm. putting them in the sauce of a flavored can helps a bit.

    1. Just tried the boneless and skinless. They are just like eating tuna. They are good to add your own sauce to. Most sardine eaters won't like these.

  2. The "Season girl" is wearing flip flops on all the containers except for the brisling in tomato. on that she has these weird lace up boots. More useless info!
