Princes Tuna - 2 tins for £1 @ Poundland

33
Found 21st Feb 2012
Was in poundland and noticed they had 2 tins of princes tuna for £1. I would guess it would be nation wide, plenty of stock in Newcastle upon Tyne

Seemed cheap and use by not until July 2014

Wow o.o just paid 80p per can for Princes a couple of days ago.

Not a huge saving, but when you get through multiple cans a week...

The ones I bought were in brine
the picture is of chunks but could you confirm whether they are flakes or chunks?

In my extensive experience ... it resembles cat food.

I'm wondering when she was preparing her jacket pot & tuna, how the hell did she not see this thing?

Or did she just empty the can over the potato? Bizzare!

Tuna flakes are worse than cat food. Our cat won't touch it. Loves chunks though.

The writing on the tin seems to say: In Spring Water.
Seems quite legible to me.

It's the Daily Mail, their stories are written by (or for?) five-year-olds and they never seem to have a firm grip on anything remotely resembling a "fact". The headlines almost never match the content and in this case the text clearly suggests that the "sea monster" (prawn?) never actually left the tin.
...as long as it isn't looking at me while I eat it! Hot deal, mixed with some mayo and sweetcorn DH won't know any different- even if it comes with free sea monkey

I think you'll find most tabloid papers are like that. The Mirror for me is the worst for doing it.
Princes aren't brilliant quality for tuna, and you can quite often get three or four Pacific Pride cans for that price in 99p shops - if it's going in things, it's just as good. Probably not ethically farmed but I'm a student, go figure

The frustrating thing about Tuna is that it would be so much cheaper if it was sustainably obtained! the current method is VERY inefficient....

This seems to happen qith all brands. I had a cockroach in mine once, can't remember the brand.

Thats a very good deal. Look in any supermarket and you're talking £3 for a tin or sometimes £4. At least in the ones near that is.

For one tin? Please tell me you've never paid that much for one tin of tuna. IT's normally £3-4 for a stack of 4 in Tesco/Asda
tuna is something i dont really scrimp on tbh.. much more value in sainsburys own brand tuna steak/chunks tins than 2-3 of these.. this stuff has negligible consistency

i know you will think this is against the point and this site with economic deals, and that i am just being snobby.. but you honestly only have to try the better quality stuff once to learn the difference..

albacore tuna is also vastly superior, but carries a slightly higher price tag still than that of the basic .. skipjack? stuff

would never go near shredded.. its offensive (not saying this is shredded) but through the interpretations of different producers the claim of "chunks" is fairly loose, john west are nearly equally as bad tbh.. great packaging/promoting.. but the actual product.. ill pass

Hurray, in time for mothers day!

tinned foods are a new thing to me..so what brands/tin do you recommend?

1. Albacore Tuna (most expensive usually)
2. Sainsburys Tuna Steak (Own Brand)
3. Homebrand Tuna Steak
4. Sainsburys Tuna Chunks (Own Brand)
5. Home Brand Tuna Chunks

3rd Last = John West
2nd Last = Princes
Last = Any Shredded Tuna


because things are branded dont mean they are better, all that is just my personal opinion..

Sainsburys home brand is all line and pole which is a benefit, costs the same as tesco's homebrand too, and always seems chunkier, more substance to it which is why i vote it top.. i cant really speak for asda homebrand as ive never had it.. this princes stuff is just mush though, and i always try to steer clear
wow thanks for that!

i'm gonna copy and paste that straight into my notes on my phone and have a good look next time i'm in the supermarket.

so are you basing this on taste/quality of tuna?

do you think your ranking system count for other stuff like makarel (which i prefer tbh)?

either way much appreciated!

based on taste and quality, pretty much coincides with sustainability aswell if thats ur thing..

not a clue really about makarel, ive only ever had that with the pepper corns in vacum packs, strong, and quite nice
