As title says, full size of John west no drain mess free tuna only 50p from £1.60 something.
Bargain, as tuna prices have rocketed recently. Am assuming nationwide as had a proper rollback stock label thingy.
Tuna chunks, not flakes.
Can't find the product at all online though?

Very good X)
Does anybody else find the no-drain variety exceptionally salty tasting, compared to the 'messy' tins?

I do but I just thought that was my taste buds x

This is good deal for the no-drain variety, true that the branded and supermarket tuna has shot up to ridiculous prices. However, ALDI sell a tin of tuna at their regular price of 55p! That's where I shop for tuna and its just as good in taste and texture, if not better!

Is that the tuna chunks or flakes? I thought Aldi's prices had increased on their tuna lately.

Thanks OP.
Looks like it's flakes rather than chunks if that makes a difference for anyone.

i bought some, my body is already **** just won't be giving it to my daughter.
Plenty of lovely Mercury and other heavy metals too.
Cold because stocks of Tuna are running low and this is a waste of good fish. Has to be in olive oil at least if its canned, and line caught. Better than wasting it on cats.
Heat because I read "...no BRAIN tuna...".

Chunks, I never buy the flakes! I must admit, i've not done a tuna run to Aldi's for several weeks so i'm not sure.

This stuff is awful, like fishy sawdust.

Good if you're so lazy that the thought of tipping a bit of oil down the sink seems like an unthinkable ordeal. Bad if you like tuna.
Tuna in spring water for the win!
If you know how John West (& Princes) catch their tuna, and you have any concerns for the other marine wildlife killed in the process, you wouldn't touch their products with a fishing rod !

You should always buy 'line caught' tuna which you can get from Sainsburys, Waitrose & Marks & Spencer, as well as a few other smaller producers (it will state that is it fished by 'pole & line' on the tin).

However, feel free to buy it as this price, as Asda are obviously not stocking it anymore, and the tuna and other marine life have already been killed, so it's better for the fish to be eaten, and not wasted.
I've just completed my online shopping w Asda.com. They have John West Tuna Chunks in both brine & sunflower oil for 50p.
I also bought 2 x tins for 50p from Romford Essex Store yesterday loads left
