[Amazon.ca] Clover Leaf Flake Light Tuna in Water, 6 Count $7.24

Canned tuna just got restocked on Amazon. It has been temporarily sold out for more than two weeks now. It comes out to $1.21 per can, limit is 6 packs of 6.

Good chance to grab some since many stores are limiting tuna to 2 cans per grocery trip.

What's the difference between expensive and cheap canned tuna? I've bought no name stuff before and after I put dill, onions, celery, and mayo in it, it tasted just fine. Is the yellow label stuff made with Springfield three-eyed fish or something?

My family prefers Unico because it has the tuna in oil

Amazon has lost its appeal to me.
This is crazy, one month delivery with prime.

Personally not a big fun of skipjack/light chunk tuna. It’s much fishier tasting and mushier than albacore/white tuna. Granted that is reflected in the price But from what I can tell Skipjack is in stock various places on Amazon currently while albacore is sold out.

If you enjoy it, awesome! I was just bummed when I clicked the link and it was skipjack that’s what I said “bummer that it’s skipjack” to save anyone like myself the click.
Makes sense.
I usually make tuna sandwich so the texture doesnt really matter for me.

Also im under the impression skipjack is better in terms of mercury content, but i dont eat tuna that much so it doesnt really matter i suppose.

Watch your mercury content ppl! Serious shits.

You are absolutely correct albacore has about 3x the mercury content of skipjack. Also in fairness to the OP it does say light chunk in the title, so that’s kinda my bad in the first place for not noticing.

The amount of money you are donating to corporate greed, markup, and the brand name.

in most cases, brand name anything is simply that. they have a name so they have to live up to it or that name becomes worthless. this tends to mean more stringent quality control and better customer service. for food though, there's usually also slight differences in their recipes and their food processing so it often has slight differences in taste although the no name stuff is usually pretty damn good at emulating the recipes.

and thanks op. i just bought a pack on amazon so i could also get a bunch of add on stuff. good price too. though delivery like someone else said is may lmao

I haven't bought these in a while, but aren't they usually less than a dollar each when there's a decent deal going on?

The lowest they go is $1.00, this isn't far off at $1.21 and is a very good price. Currently $1.47 each at Walmart, $2.39 at Loblaws.

But the main advantage is delivery and being able to order dozens. There is a limit of two single cans at my local Loblaws in Toronto, maybe different at other stores.

Maybe the confinement is making me go crazy but pretty sure I've seen them at $0.8X before but yeah no time machine, and delivery and quantity limit during these times

Interesting that you don't like that fish tastes like fish. Why bother with fish then?

This is regular price for Amazon. I've ordered before, prepare to receive at least 2 dented cans. Also product of Thailand for people interested.

He prefers the taste of one over the other - he's allowed his opinion. Different fishes have different tastes.

Go judge people elsewhere.
