Careful, they've sadly also begun selling tuna from a different provenance. It used to be mediterranean only but I've seen different labels from time to time.

Rio Mare is the best tasting canned tuna by miles.

Agreed. Taste is great. We use the chili version straight onto salads.

If you're making a tuna salad slathered in mayo though, I'd go with the cheaper...

This is a good deal. Very tasty tuna and I'd pick some up if I didn't already have 10 cans in the cupboard. Thanks for sharing, OP!

Maybe a stupid question... do you drain the oil then add mayo for the sandwich?

I bought a pack to try, but the Unico tuna in soya oil is my favorite tasting tuna under $2/can, and is currently $1/can at Nofrills this week for a 198g can.

Curious to hear if Rio Mare is 3x better than Unico.

Soya oil kills the deal IMHO. Best to pay for the better quality oil.

I've never tried their tuna on its own, I like their mexican mix tuna, I take them for lunch sometimes. I'll have to give the plain tuna a try in a sandwich

Rio mare quality is way better plus its usually packed in olive oil, much better for you than processed soy or veg oil. Fish is also from Mediterranean, I'd be very weary of anything originating from Asia.

Why, what is wrong with Asian tuna? Japanese have some of the longest life expectancies in the world, partly attributed to their high local seafood consumption.

Japanese, korean vs southeast asia, china....

The former is way more expensive and the cheap stuff is always from "asia" aka the poor, unregulated areas. I wouldnt trust them. The way they farm over there is... not great for the ocean or our bodies

Everything is unregulated there. Literally. Small amounts of money regulates the regulators.

Yeah.
I was just noting the difference of quality (usually) between asian seafood from SEA and Japan. A world of difference.

Thanks OP.

I just got a new supply from Amazon a couple days ago-bad timing on my part.

It costs more, but it tastes so much better than the tuna available in my local grocery store.

Worth the premium.
