Delicate pieces of premium tuna combined with a blend of black olives that have been flavoured with lemon pepper. This makes a perfect addition to salads, and can also be used in sandwiches and on cracker toppings.
A healthy source of Omega 3, Pacific Crown tuna is wild caught using dolphin friendly methods.
I love lemon pepper so was super keen to try this one. The olives are the only negative thing I can say as there wasn't many (i think I only counted one finely cut) and I didn't see any chopped up in the tuna. Although the lemon pepper has that classic packet taste, I really like it. Dryness wise I am happy as there is nothing worse than dry or super oily tuna, especially when you have it on bread. I don't really like the fish taste with most tunas and found having flavored ones really good to meet all you body requirements without that.
The rest of my family don't like lemon pepper or olives so if you don't like them, this is not the product for you. If you can stop yourself from eating the whole can on eating, this would be fantastic in salad or on toast for breakfast.
One thing I have learnt is after eating this particular tuna, is to brush your teeth otherwise you may have little black bits. Pacific crown is an easily identifiable brand and easy to find in my local supermarket. The size is handy for both school lunches and the handbag for while you are out.
I am a huge fan of lemon pepper but I am not a fan of olives, in fact I avoid the horrible things like the plague but this tuna actually sounded really nice. First thing I noticed when I opened he tin was the big pieces of olives on the top and my first thought was that I should be able to pick the olives off, which I did and thetDte of the tuna was amazing.
I used this on my lunch, a cheese and tuna sandwich and although I know there were small pieces of olives, I could see a few but they were too mall to pick off, I couldn't actually taste the olives so I know that this is one that I will be buying again. The tin is a good size that you don't have a lot leftover and my fish mad son also eats olives so they will not go to waste. I was surprised to fond that my youngest son who normally hates tuna actually asked if he could they some and then asked for more.
I really like how good the tuna tastes without being incredibly oily and that the fish is caught using dolphin friendly methods. I still don't like olives but I will be buying this tuna again and leaving the olives for my son.
I love tuna mixed in with a lettuce salad and find that the flavoured tuna in these size tins are just perfect for a tuna salad lunch. I have tried other brands of tuna in the past and my favourite has always been lemon pepper. I was keen to try this flavour with the olives added and also this brand as it was not a brand that I had bought in the past.
In opening the tin I was quite surprised at the over powering smell of the lemon. This made me a bit wary as I didn't want the lemon flavour to overtake that of the tuna. I found that eating this tuna straight from the tin was too strong a flavour and quite peppery. The olives just seemed to blend into the background so they were really no added bonus.
I added it to a lettuce salad like I have with other brands. The lemon flavour was rather overpowering (not a fresh taste but more like those of bottle lemons) and I found the tuna to be rather dry.
Although I did enjoy this, I am not convinced that it is a variety I would buy in the future unless there was a big price difference.
