Cheers, I have to check out my local!

Any idea if national? I go through 4 cans a week and I usually bulk buy about 40-50 cans, this would be perfect!

they usually sell the 3 very small tins for £1

I am arming myself with 2 rucksacks first thing tomorrow morning. I will surely stock up on as much as I can if this is true. I am actually going through a bulk purchase on Lidl's Nixie tuna which is cheap but not very good quality... £0.33p is a bargain!

I love a bargain and like most are currently counting the pennies. However did anyone see the tele prog the other night showing large fishing vessels belonging to 'Princess' comming into port in Maritius. The programme makers were refused entry to film in the port and had to film without them knowing. The people of most of the small islands around this area in the Indian Ocean rely on fishing for their food. Without it they cannot survive, there is NOTHING else, life is very basic. Large companies are fishing in the area using large nets and seriously depleating the fish stocks. A guy from one island who looked younger than 30 said the amount of fish in thewater had reduced a great deal from when he was young and they now had very little to eat. The prospect for the next generation didn't look good. Sorry to seem radical, I'm not usually but this got to me. I am now thinking seriously before I buy. I ask that others do the same but understand if you do need to buy.

Agreed.

unfortunately i am unemployed and find it difficult to get good sources of protein or good quality food at that...So im going to buy and vote hot..even though i agree with the kewt quite strongly. Will not be long now before he is criticised for posting it here,BUT GOOD POINT AND GOOD DEAL.

Great deal thanks

Thanks Aricanman and Andyguy. Perhaps and I hope the fact that this product is in a discount store (and I have noticed it being discounted pretty heavily in the main supermarkets) means that it cannot be shifted/ stores are distancing themselves. As I indicated before, I dont blame anyone for going for a good deal. Just wanted to raise awareness.

Good deal. Even if it means a smelly fishy breath.

Cannot beat a tuna and cucumber sandwich

will check our local tomorrow hope they have some we love tuna

Went to my local PL (Tottenham Hale) and couldn't see any, it's a great price so I will look out for it. I agree with you Aricanman, I usually get my fish from Waitrose or Sainsbury's but like ANDYGUY I've recently become unemployed and tinned tuna is a quick way of making a nutritious meal (Tuna nicoise salad, Tuna Bolagnese etc). But thanks for making us aware (I'll lookout for the documentry).

The Documentary was called Indian Ocean with Simon Reeve. Shown 8pm 29th April on BBC2.

Tuna Bolognese sounds disgusting. But Tuna Napolitana - now you're talking

maddoglewis - Don't knock it until you've tried it. Here the recipe

- 1 tin of Tuna in Sunflower oil
- 2 cloves of Garlic
- 1 tsp of dried Oregano (or mixed herbs)
- 1 medium red onion
- 1 tin of chopped tomatoes
- 1 Tin of sweetcorn
- a couple of sprigs of fresh Basil
- half a tsp of salt
- Half a tsp of ground black pepper
- 1 tsp of Worcester Sauce
Pasta of your choice

1) Finely chop garlic and onion and fry in the oil from the Tuna until soft. Use a frying pan
2) Throw in salt and herbs and pepper
3) Add the tuna break it up and cook until Tuna starts to brown a little (you know gets a little crispy)
4) Stir in the Chopped tomatoes and the Sweetcorn reduce the sauce and add the Worcester Sauce
5) Serve up with your pasta and add the basil

I know it probably doesn't sound like Bolognese but when I was at uni my I used to make this for my girlfriend when she gave up meat. It's quick and easy and when I've made it in the past everybody has loved it (I didn't use to add the sweetcorn but wanted to bulk it up a bit (plus it means you get 2 of your 5 a day)

Tune in next week and I'll tell you how to make my legendary Dolce Leche Cake

Tuna normally has 4 years shelf life, its probably in poundland as it is 'short' dated

yes , I agree , it's dreadful

also google ' 2050 no fish left ' ... even more worrying

Has anyone found this deal in their store? My local one in Dalston London did not and the staff hadn't heard about the offer!

I make something similar but add sun dried tomatoes if I have them. Makes it a bit richer.

princes tuna is vile, must be the ill fish they catch because it seems much lesser quality than the John west stuff i get. I know it shouldn't be logically, maybe they are a little harsher when landing the fish but it deff seems inferior the the tinned stuff from J.W.

Not in my local. Apart from OP, has anyone found this deal?

Thank you for the heads up, a great deal.

EXCELLENT COMMENT Kewt, we should all be aware that tuna is being overfished and will be extinct within our lifetimes - please don't buy any tuna unless it has a Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) label on it, which means it comes from a sustainable source

Good point Kewt. I, too, saw that episode of "Indian Ocean with Simon Reeve" and I was alarmed by the behaviour of Princes.. I did a quick hunt around and found that Greenpeace publish this easy guide re. manufacturers commitment to sustainable tuna fishing: No surprise, therefore, to find Princes at the bottom:

greenpeace.org.uk/tun…ble

Tuna Fusili anyone?

Use canned tuna in sunflower oil , fry it on a pan with the oil until brown with garlic paste, sliced green chillies, soya suace.
One brown , throw in a can of chick peas and necessary amount of peas.

Boil fusili until soft. ( dont forget to add a tbsp of salt while its boiling! )

Now, if your original pan is big enough, add fusili to cover the pan, making sure you dont add too much, you need to stir and mix them up! Now, add a bit of sunflower oil from a bottle, add grlic paste again and soya sauce again. If you want, you can add a few dollops of Nandos peri peri HOT sunblushed tomatoes sauce.

Once everything feels crispy and mixed, make some salad by finely chopping/grating tomatoes, cucumber, red onion and lettuce.

Mix salad with your fusili and enjoy!

Any questions , simply PM me!

Good for cat food.

Nope, & I've tried 2 Poundland's today in the Durham area, 1 in Chester Le Street and 1 at the Arnison centre, only tuna in both was that cheap awful stuff.

Not in Barking or Eastham £land

How has this got so much heat when no-one has been able to find it? We don't even know what branch the OP found it in.

No one finding any, beginning to smell a bit fishy. Who gives heat on stuff they have not experienced or found ( I refrained from doing so until I find some)

Rachel72 - Cheers for the tip will give it a go next time

not in bournemouth

No evidence this is a true deal and it gets heat?? This site is no longer the site it was set up to be. Disappointed.

Tried 3 different Poundlands in Glasgow City Centre yesterday and not a trace... Expire as no-one else has found it?
