Wild Planet Wild Albacore Tuna Review & giveaway!

Wild Planet contacted me about trying their Wild Albacore Tuna.  Actually, what they sent was two coupons for up to $4.99 that could be used to purchase their product.

I had the option of getting their Tuna or Sardines.  Since I'm not a Sardines fan, I decided to try the tuna.  Tuna is a great option, especially if you happen to be giving up meat on Friday during Lent.  Regardless, it's a healthy option.  Here's what I got:

I'm sure all of you are used to buying tuna.  Typically, it's something that had to be drained and is already shredded for you.  You don't drain this since it's not soaked in water like other tuna.
Not low in fat but still healthy for you
There are some unique features to the tuna which is why I decided to try it:
  1. No sodium added.  I try to watch my intake and this keeps it low.
  2. They come in tuna steaks.  I've never tried tuna like this.  You get to chunk it apart yourself for the desired consistency.
  3. Because they catch smaller fish, it has 1/2 the mercury - safer 0.17 ppm
  4. The highest Omega 3 - 1,384 mg per 2 oz. serving
I can't say that I eat tuna that frequently but I do enjoy it.  I was amazed by the flavor from this tuna steak.  It had a really nice fish taste that was not too "fishy" and does not leave any aftertaste.  One drawback to this tuna, it's quite expensive.  $4.99 per can is quite high compared to the other brands.  Even though my wife had the coupons, she got it at Kroger for $3.50 per can.  Still quite high but it is very tasty!

Who wants a tuna sandwich for lunch?
