Sandwich Tuna in Brine £1 in MORRISONS

Found 31st Jul 2009Made hot 31st Jul 2009
This is actually 3 x 170gm tins of tuna, so works out at 33p tin. Haven't tried them, so probably flaked fish rather than chunks, but an excellent price for tuna which has become sooooo expensive lately.

At this price, treat your cat, must be cheaper than pet food!

i normally couldnt give a sh1t about stuff like this but with tuna i do and will never buy it again i saw a program and it was all about tuna boats and then the process of tinning it in the factory and it put me well off

dont get me wrong i couldnt care less if they are caught nastly or that the workers are paid poorly and cant even afford the tuna themselves but watching the dirty stinky ******* handle the tuna put me well off

voted hot though as cheap

:w00t:yeh course I do:roll::p



we all know you do:p

I bought this stuff on Sunday and I'm sorry to say that it is rank rotten - I dont actually think there is much difference between this and cat food (not that i've tasted cat food before people say ;)).

Cant argue with the price, though.

Totally agree. Shredded tuna, is what they call it but that's BS! It's more like the offal and nasty bits from the fish.

Churchill/Starsparkle - Get a room. :roll:

PS
It's that bad, my cat honestly won't touch it.

It isn't the nasty bits of fish - it is just the odd shaped bits that are left after the machine punches the round can-shaped"chunks" out of the fish. These are then shredded and canned. BBC3 had a program recently about working in a tuna factory and showed how they get the different grades.

That said - I wouldn't eat shredded - but the price reflects that it isn't chucks and compared to 48p for own brand shredded it is still a good price. Especially for the cats.

As a marine biologist who has worked in the industry I can tell you that its probably skipjack which is alot cheaper and more abundant than its tastier and bigger cousins. if you want yellowfin tuna look any tuna that comes from either the maldives or seychelles. Still its okay for sarnies.

Years ago I remember getting tuna from my mum in a sandwich and to me it tasted great.

Now as a mature person when I buy tuna and make sandwiches it always tastes rubbish especially if it's in spring water or brine. In oil seems slightly better.

Unfortunately the same applies to lots of other things.


There seems to be very little in supermarkets nowadays that you could call quality food.


We seem to have food items now that are all about price but the quality seems to have gone the only thing that matters seems to be selling lots of cheap product and making profits for the food companies and supermarkets.

Is there any good tuna out there in a tin ?
Are tuna steaks better quality than chunks, shredded etc.

I've only ever bought cheap tuna once. Never again, it's awful.

id love to try horse steak it looked beautiful when it was on gordon ramseys f word so i decided to try and get some and i tried ever where in end i emailed gordon ramsey and got an email back saying it was illegal in the uk and that gordon ramsey does not condone the selling of it, and that he would not buy, eat or sell it

funny as he tried it on the f word

I got two three packs of these the other day and upon opening there wasn't a single piece of recognisable tuna in there, it was just mashed bits. Looks like what they might scrape of their boots in the factory. In fact, when I drained it using my tin strainer, a lot of the actual fish went straight through the strainer holes and into the sink!

So very cheap but not human food. The remaining tins are now in the dog food cupboard...

BTW, Morrisons had a good deal on Tuna Steaks 200g in brine or oil at £1.09 BOGOF. At least with these you could recognise it as tuna.

Don't like brine but oil is fine.
