    When I was a kid I ate canned tuna (sandwich, salad, etc.) all the time. In the past few years I've found I don't like to because the tuna most companies put out has been shredded so finely it's no longer "tuna in water", it's "tuna pulp", and almost impossible to drain properly because it's like squeezing the liquid out of a turd nowadays.

    Then while doing a grocery run a day ago, I ran into this stuff.

    Seeing as just a few days before I was annoyed at my inability to get some drained tuna for a dish, I had to grab a few cans.

    And holy crap, they weren't lying.

    LOOK AT THAT. Actual SOLID (nice and dense) tuna, and it was really only a tiny amount of water that poured out easily.

    They apparently have pre-seasoned stuff as well. I tried the lemon pepper kind and it was pretty strong (definitely meant to go in a dish instead of on it's own), haven't tried the thai chili one.

    the starkist in the gold can with the easy open top is really solid like that as well.
    bumble bee premium in the pouch is also really good.
    they're so much more expensive than the normal cans though, it might be worth it when you account for the water weight.

    Yeah I went for this because it's still in the price range of normal canned, which means a lot more happy for the dollar.

    I love Chicken of the Sea Solid White Albacore tuna. As far as best bang for your buck, check out their 66.5 oz can (in water.) The water to tuna ratio is good, but it helps if you're trying to feed 5-10 ppl at a time.

    While I am a tuna aficionado, there is something mildly...off...about reading about it on the Temp.

    Surely you mean something mildly fishy?

    Go ahead and eat your damn tuna, but remember all the poor dolphins that died while people were catching those tunas. :evil:

    I like the tuna pouches. Those usually don't have to be drained, but they are expensive. This might be interesting to check out next time I'm at the grocery store.

    Just looks like standard tuna here. Have not seen this pulped tuna you speak of over here.

    Brian117 seeking tuna... now I really have seen it all.

    As for the matter at hand it looks like I will have to add canned tuna to the list of things Americans fail to get right when it comes to food. As we discovered earlier bread is also not a talent there so I now just feel sorry that something as nice as a proper tuna sandwich goes unknown by so many.
