APPEARANCE:


NUTRITION:
N/A

PRODUCT OF: 
Thailand

INGREDIENTS:
Soybean oil, Salt, Smoked Flavor

PRICE:
.69-1.00

OVER ALL:

 (Islands finest? Must be from New Moore Island) A very deep smoke aroma upon opening, almost a imitation bacon bit aroma. "Scary" A very messy appearance  Appears to be four fish to the tin, with a pile of scales and bones piled in the corner of the tin. looks as if a seagull has regurgitated into the tin. the fish just crumbles while removing from tin. Smoke flavor taste, not to strong. The fish, has a bad texture, an almost gritty quality to it. it's almost mush quality, these had to of been made for a spread, or just to make a $ . No fishy taste, only a slight smoke after taste. I would not eat again. No Sardines.

  1. Just had a tin of these over spinach with feta and lemon juice. I got them today at Shop Rite in Chester, NY. The appearance of the sardines inside the tin were totally different than your pic. There were 5 small, firm fish that were completely intact. I never had this brand before. they were alright but a little too fishy tasting

    1. That's good to hear on appearance. I acquired two tins of these guys. Unfortunately, both tins looked like this. I used the other tin in the "Burial of the Sardine" bit. It seems appearance may of been sacrificed for fishy taste. ... I may have to do a revisit on these.. maybe..
