Yes it is a bit of a dramatic title but this is a review that starts with a sad story, but don't worry it has a happy ending! Five years ago Capt Springtide and I were walking along the beach in southern Spain close to where we live. It was a cold and windy winter's day, (it does happen) and we were quite sad because this was the first time we had taken this walk without our beloved dog "Henry Stoppit" who had died the year before. As we walked past some apartments we heard the sound of a party and one of the guests on seeing us shouted across "Where's the dog?" We explained and being a dog owner herself and helping out at the local dog ... Read the complete review

Ok not many of us admit to liking pilchards. It isn't the done thing at all but me I like fish and always have done! I spotted these in my mates cupboard the other day and decided to try them out. I remember when I was a kid my Mum making me pilchards on toast and thinking it was vile so I thought well I'll have them and see if it's as bad as what I remembered them to be! Oddly enough I've never even to the best of my knowledge even seen other branded pilchards! The Packaging: Small red can with a photograph of a pilchard on the front and I'm told that they are Glenryck 'Quality canned fish for over 75 years' High in Omega 3, ... Read the complete review

'Glenrick Pacific Pilchards" - in Tomato sauce. Now I have to begin by saying that when I first saw that my wife had bought these and they were lurking in the cupboard I frowned and thought "What the hell". I personally am not big on fish; I never have been and probably never will be no matter how much people tell me there good for me. Usually if you say, "Fish and Chips", I say "no, no, no, sausage and chips" So imagine my horror when my wife reached past my shoulder and pulled the tin out, stating that she was going to make me a pilchard sandwich. I literally shuddered in disgust. Even as she ... Read the complete review

Glenryck Pilchards in tomato sauce are produced by Glenryck foods. I always have several tins in my kitchen cupboard and find that they make a very quick and tasty snack. Glenryck Pilchards are delicious served hot or cold, either simply on toast or with a fresh salad. Personally I especially like them on toast (brown bread). The pilchards are smothered in a delicious tomato sauce. You can also get them in brine but I prefer the tomato. They make a simple, cheap, nutritious and nourishing meal. The only downside is that you are required to take out the bones down the centre of the fish once you have split them open. i didn't use to like doing ... Read the complete review

Glenryck Pacific Pilchards in tomato sauce are a relatively new addition to my kitchen cupboards. My husband had told me many times over the years, how he used to really enjoy pilchards on toast while he was living at home with his mum and dad and also during his cash strapped student days. Being a bit of a fussy fish eater, I typically screwed up my nose when he described them, as it didn't sound very appealing and far too fishy for me. Fast forward a few years we had a gorgeous little girls and I was reading through my baby cook books and trying to gain a good understanding of my little girls nutritional requirements. Omega 3 and Protein were things that ... Read the complete review
