The Best Tuna

I’ve been on a diet for the past few months where I can eat anything I want for 4 days of the week, but for three I have a very strict diet. In that lunch every day is tuna fish, with very little seasoning. It’s safe to say that over the past 4 months I’ve become somewhat of an aficionado of tuna fish, at least what I can get at the store.

It was pretty funny actually, I recall clearly one Friday evening out with the family and in-laws, and saw a Gold Box deal (between November 1st and Christmas they have hourly deals of almost anything, but they only come up at certain times and sell out quickly for popular stuff) for, you guessed it, tuna fish. More specifically, 24 cans of Crown Prince Tuna. My wife thought I was crazy, but it was pretty good. Over the next three months I single handedly worked my way through the box, and decided to see what else was available, so I’ve gone through a few different store brands and commercial brands like Star Kist, Star Burst (okay, maybe tune flavored Star Burst?), Chicken of the Sea, some Tuna in oil (packed like sardines, it was pretty good, but $4 – $6 per can), and even Sashimi tuna (think sushi without the rice).

Yesterday I tried one of the last brands, and I was stunned. This was, without a doubt, the best tuna I had ever eaten. Wild Planet tuna is excellent! It’s definitely cheaper in the grocery store than on Amazon. I was reading the can later, and saw they use sashimi grade tuna. Really though, it’s been over a day and I’m still thinking about it and telling other people about it.  If you’re looking for some excellent tuna, Wild Planet is the way to go.
