  1. Whaaat? A five star tin from china? I had given up on them long ago. Have you bumped your head? Just kidding! I am still afraid of them.

  2. Just had one of these this afternoon and I'm very, very impressed. The fish size is excellent (some of the biggest tinned sardines I've ever seen) and the heat is perfect. Significant but not a total blowout.
