Since most of you have probably realized that, like it or not, canned tuna is a cheap and convenient protein source I though I would provide a little consumer review. I live in MA and have found that all the supermarket chains carry their own brand of albacore tuna. It is always a product of Thailand, costs about a buck, and generally is a can full of nice solid, white tuna meat. I have often been able to stick a fork into the “steak” and pull it out whole.
Recently I have seen the name brands on sale 10 for $10 and thought: “What have I got to lose?”. Answer: $10. I bought 10 cans of Bumble Bee Chunk White Tuna and knew as soon as a goodly portion of the product squirted out with the water when I pushed the can lid down that I was in for a disapointment. There were no “Chunks”, it wasn’t “White”, and I’m not even quite sure about the “Tuna” claim. Seriously, I’ve seen more appetizing cat food. To make matters worse I read the label to find: CONTAINS: TUNA, SOY. …Bummer Hell…
