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
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 Tuna, mostly buy the tin but enjoy it whatever way.

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.
