solid white albacore in a can, the bag has too much salt in it

Neither -- hubby doesn't like canned tuna. I would try both.

I buy both, but I like it in the pouch better.

I'm a big ole canned tuna girl (or fresh)... I like that I can jazz it up the way I like it. I buy always water packed tuna as well so if there's fat in it, I'm the one adding it.

I use both but I real like the favored tuna in the bags.

I'm old fashioned and just buy the canned type, but now I'm curious and will try the bag.

I have bought and liked both. I usually get whatever is on sale, but I only buy albacore.

The canned stuff isn't much better. I do buy canned just because it is cheaper

My husband can't stand the weird taste of the kind in the bag, so I still only buy cans, from Costco, a whole bunch of cans at a time, because we eat it even for snacks.

I eat it canned or in a pouch. I find the pouches to be more convenient though.

never canned, always in a pouch emoticon

11/11/12 7:00 P

I buy fresh or frozen tuna steaks and love the flavor compared to any in a can or pouch.

Bag hands down. If you tuna was not so good from a bag it must have been the brand, because the albacore tuna I got was excellent. I never plan to get can again.

I use both but prefer the pouches, particularly the tuna steaks. With a salad, one of them makes a very satisfactory lunch meal or even dinner.It's one of the things I use to get back on track after a day of less than conscientious eating.

I am not a fan of tuna but I do not see them in a bag here....only in tin

ANARIE Posts: 12,436

Honestly, I think the quality has gotten better, not worse. I buy plain old chunk light in a can, and it's much flakier and less mushy than the same brand was when I was a kid. It looked like cat food back then!

I also like the kind in the pouch, especially the flavored ones. The hickory smoked makes a really nice tuna-noodle casserole. Of course it's nothing at all like fresh tuna, but I consider those two completely different foods.

I've tried the bagged tuna and it was okay. Do you want to know what's really good ? If you can afford it, buy imported Italian canned tuna in oil. Yeah, I know the oil adds more calories, but it adds more flavor too. I occasionally buy a small can to toss into my salads. yum...

Usually, I buy the solid white albacore in water, on sale. I'll only buy chunk light if it's a really good deal. Chunk light doesn't have much flavor.

Tuna is awesome no matter how you buy it.. Fresh or frozen are obviously the best in both taste and texture. But, canned tuna makes this high protein, low fat, omega 3 rich fish affordable for low income people like myself. Would I prefer fresh fish, or even frozen?? Of course!! But, canned tuna allows people to enjoy it in casseroles and sandwiches at a price that is affordable.

I love Whole Foods 365 brand (Albacore) with no salt do not miss the salt, ESP. If you're adding mayo!

The quality of packaged tuna has deteriorated so much over the years I will not eat it or buy it anymore.
