OVERALL:
Skinless and Boneless should be used lightly here—full of bones and patches of skin. The texture is as if you are chewing on rubber. The taste is not much better, almost like eating dry-rotted rubber. Not a tin I would ever consider eating again. I've still not figured out what happened to chicken of the sea. No sardines.
