StarKist Review, Recipes, and GIVEAWAY!!


Dieticians and doctors have been promoting the health benefits of seafood for some time now. However, Americans, who are often on-the-go often don't have the time to prepare the recommended number of seafood meals a week.  StarKist is working hard to deliver their popular seafood products in the most convenient way possible.  Previously available only in a can, they now offer their products in a single serve pouch!

Review: I was given a selection of StarKist products in single serving pouches to try.  The pouches are not only a more convenient way to pack tuna for work, it is also much easier to store the packets as opposed to the cans.  The taste is the same great tuna and albacore that I have become accustomed to and perhaps even slightly better as I have eaten tuna straight from the can and it had a bit of a tinny taste because of the metal. They also offer tuna salad in a pouch which is great because I was able to pack two pieces of bread and not have to worry about the tuna soaking into the bread or having to refrigerate it because I could make the sandwich right at my desk. Having tuna contained in a pouch just makes sense and I may never go back to tuna in a can again!
