John West Tuna Chunks in Brine
Advantages: Great Taste, Reasonable Price On Special Offer.
Disadvantages: The Occasional Discoloured Bit.
On the days when I want something light I usually just open a can of Tuna Chunks, drain it and then throw it with a salad, in a sandwich or toss it with a little pasta.
This tuna comes in an aluminium can and a can opener will be required as there is no ring pull on this can. It has a paper label on it displaying the John West logo, a picture of the tuna chunks, ingredients (tuna, water & salt) & nutritional information.
There is plenty of brine in the can and this keeps the tuna fairly moist and delicious and once drained off the weight of the tuna is 130g so you get 55g of brine in each can. Also, if you have a cat they might like to drink the brine as my sisters' cat does.
The tuna is in pretty good sized chunks and they're chunky, tasty and moist, I have tried other cans of tuna with a similar taste and for this reason I am going to have to rate this 4/5. This tuna is perfectly suitable for sandwiches, pasta bakes, salads etc and if you really wanted to have a luxury lunch then I'd recommend spending a little more and getting a more succulent tasting can of tuna such as this one.
I did not find any bad tuna in my can, however, I have noticed some black and discoloured bits in the past. It did taste perfectly acceptable for the 75p price that I paid per can (£2.25 for a multipack of 3 cans). The can is recyclable and there are 145 calories for the entire can of drained tuna and this is great for me when trying to watch what I eat because it's very low in calories & fat (0.6g).
I would buy this again and I got this on offer, however, at it's normal price it's a little bit too expensive for me so I wouldn't bother and would stick to the value products to save some pennies. This was a delicious addition to my lunch though and great in a tuna pasta bake topped with crisps and cheese. Delicious! 4/5 from me.
Summary: A Versatile Cupboard Can.
