The supermarket tinned tuna wars continue. This works out at 45p a can just like the old days. I saw this promoted in Morrisons Shepherds Bush this morning with a huge stack of them by the entrance. I assume it's a nationwide offer. Sorry but I didn't catch the expiry date on this offer.

I bought 10 cans of these for £5 last week from Asda.

Great deal though, if you can't get any other offer.

So this deal is cheaper and therefore better than yours from ASDA then.

Only If Morrisons is closer :whistling:

I have to admit, I wish I did have an Asda closer. I prefer them to Morrisons all day long.

Thats a chunky deal....good price.

:thumbsup:

Shame it doesn't include sunflower oil - the brine definitely taints the taste IMO. Probably not a problem if you're having it with mayonnaise and sweetcorn but I like mine just drained and with a hint of salt on a sandwich. The sunflower oil stuff is amazing for this :thumbsup:

Mix it in with salad cream and some chopped gherkin - scrummy :thumbsup:

Or rice, mayo and Jalapenos

Sunflower Oil's cost price is more expensive than Brine so it's unlikely to see the promotions cut this deep on the oil as they won't make the company any money!

I'm the same much prefer the sunflower oil! daughter loves tuna,sweetcorn and pasta so this is ideal for that!
Ipswich Morrisons had loads of it!!

Has anyone else weighed the amount of fish you get from a 185g can?

The label says (iirc) that the drained weight should be about 130g. But when I've checked, I get about 85g of water (from the brine tins) and 100g of fish.

I even complained to John West. They claimed it was an isolated incident and sent me a couple of quid postal order.

wow, you must have a lot of time on your hands!

Sainsbury's Tuna is also 45p a tin (online):

sainsburys.co.uk/gro…084

Last time I was in Sainsbury's though, the price was 51p I think, so not sure if this has changed in store as well.

Sainsbury's has 4x 200g tuna in sunflower oil for £2.50 if anyone is interested.

Yeah, it does sound a bit ****, doesnt it. hehe.

The thing is, I open a can, squash the lid down to get rid of the water and I realised the tin is only half full. That's what made me measure it.

Good price. Why is Tuna so damn expensive? I last bought 3 tiny tins of the stuff for £2.20 in Somerfield.

I just like the fish on its own, thanks

Tuna IS very expensive now because of extensive fishing, it is getting harder and harder to find in the numbers we used to, long fishing trips, more effort, higher cost.

But hey, it could be worse! The most expensive single Tuna fish ever sold was in Japan this year for a whopping £110,000! That bette be damn good fish...

Fill yer boots now. They'll be all but extinct in a few years and we'll wonder why we were so stupid to sit by as the oceans were fished to death and vandalised and did nothing about it. Greenpeace reckon that for every lb of fish you eat, 2lbs of other sea life was thrown back dead or dying - the fishing methods just scoop up everything over huge areas.

Sorry, I've got my National Geographic head on at the moment. (But hey, it's a good deal..... )

or tesco has the sunflower ones for £2:thumbsup:

Low quality tuna from a low quality manufacturer raping the seas for resources. I have absolutely no idea why people buy John West tuna when all the supermarket own brands are cheaper, more ethical and better (imo) quality!

Jacky_Danny;7847742

Good price. Why is Tuna so damn expensive?



Worldwide Tuna stocks are diminishing due to unsustainable fishing from companies like John West.

That's why it's more expensive than it would be otherwise.

Great price on the tuna But I see they clawed a bit back on the bananas now that price war has finished (these were always no more than £1.09 before xmas) ;-)

Original Poster

There was 10 bananas in the pack so not too bad. I only got them because the loose ones were hard enough to bang nails in with.

Great find ronmanager! This deal has been featured in ]Bitterwallet's daily deals!

http://www.bitterwallet.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/12/thanks_bitterwallet.png

You can get 6 cans of John West tuna in brine for £3.00 from Lidl. Not quite as good as the Morrison's deal but not too bad either.

Agree that only half the can is fish after you've squeezed all the juice out but one can is enough for a sandwich for both me and the wife and it's handy to have these in the cupboard.

BTW, don't get the tuna you get in these JW cans with the increasingly rare blue fin tuna. This type of tuna is commonly referred to as "rats of the sea" they are so common!

Absolutely not, they're all pretty consistent. But my girlfriend made me stop weighing them now.

I've started to feed tuna to my dog as it's so cheap. She's very pleased to be having Pedigree Nicoise of an evening lately.

£2 for tins in Brine OR Sunflower Oil at my local Tesco a couple of days ago.
(Newtownabbey - Northern Ireland)
A saving of £3 something per pack I believe!

I bought 10 packs as the kids love tuna sarnies for lunch and they keep for years!
