PRICE:

OVER ALL:
Strong smoke aroma upon opening. Smoke flavor hits you on first bite. Almost a chewy consistency to the fish. They taste as leather smells. A slight fishy after taste, not a tin to eat by themselves; these may be good in a dish or sorts. I would not eat again alone. 1 1/2 Sardines

PRODUCT OF:

INGREDIENTS:
Sardine Fillets, Pure Maple Syrup, Salt

PRICE:

OVER ALL:
Smoke aroma hits you hard on opening. The fillets are all sort of formed together into a fish block. Smoke flavor is mild, yet very detectable; sweetness of the syrup follows behind the smoke flavor and the sweetness of the syrup  really balances out well (not too sweet) Fish has a lovely dark color to it from the smoking process, a good textured fish; not dry as some fillets can be. This can goes well with saltines, adding a sweet and salty combination. No fishy taste or after. I'm pleasantly surprised, would eat again. 5 Sardines

May Day! Beltane! The Maypole dance! I attended a local Mayday festival where My request to play Les Sardines by Patrick Sebastien was enjoyed by all. The video is dark, but the fun is lively. Here is a clip from the Maypole dance.
