since all the discussion i tried out regular olive oil and have to admit, it's far more of a 'treat' than regular tuna. Not sure i'd like rio mare on a sandwich...haven't tried yet...but just on its own or mixed with a little something to spice it up...way tastier than regular. (think Ribeye steak vs sliced roast beef. Ribeye is delicious and you probably wouldn't put it in a sandwich and it's obviously better than crappy sliced roast beef).

Zehrs also had a sale on this...not sure if it was local. $3.99 for 3*160g. Should have taken a pic....bought 8 (*3) myself lol. Regular price was $7.99 i think

I hear you. It's good enough that I wouldn't want to waste it on a sandwich. But it also almost doesn't work well with a sandwich even if you wanted to, because it's so good.

I end up throwing it in a bowl with some sliced avocado, a bit of light mayo, cracked black pepper... it's damned good as a meal, honestly.

cloverleaf chunk tuna is like a cross section of fish, flake tuna is like a mess. Rio mare is kind of in between, so it's not a chunk but it's not mush.

Flavor of cloverleaf, now that i've had rio mare, is probably a bit dry. As well rio mare almost has a more savory flavor to it, i think that savory flavor, for folks that are so-so on tuna to begin, might be off putting as savory also kind of hits tastebuds differently. I suspect some folks might like 'regular' better, like some folks like hotdogs and not steak.

Finally, the oil needs to be drained (at least in my opinion), and even after draining, once the tuna is out i sometimes drain a bit more, but the tuna ends up being 'oily'. For me it's about finding just the right amount of olive oil to leave in the tuna, as that ends up being the 'sauce'. It's delicious...but again, different.

I should point out that i don't think i've tried cloverleaf in oil...and feel like i should to do a real comparison, but up until now I think i've just bought whatever the standard clover leaf stuff is, which i believe is in water. Also i don't know if packed in 'oil' vs olive oil makes a difference...but now that i've tried rio mare, i am curious to try out other oil packed variants.


(edit) if you like canned tuna, you should definitely spend the $$ to try rio mare once. Tried for a first time a couple weeks ago and i'm a convert.
