A Starkist Tuna TV commercial just informed me that the new Flavor Fresh Pouch is better than a can because it seals in flavor. Pardon my ignorance, Charlie, but do Starkist’s cans leak or something?
Okay, to be fair, I do prefer pouched tuna. Unlike canned tuna, the product weight listed on a pouch is all tuna; I know I’m not draining a quarter of a 6-ounce can down the drain in the form of water. I also don’t have to mess with a can opener. Yes, it’s more expensive, but it really does taste better, and it has a firmer consistency.
My cats miss licking the remnants from those cans, though. 😉
Howie and I have been trying to follow the American Heart Association’s dietary guidelines, and that includes eating two servings of fish per week. Part of that we enjoy in the form of tilapia fillets I cook on our George Foreman grill (with removeable plates, woo!). The other part of the weekly brain food comes from tuna. I think that’s the only reason I even noticed the ad tonight. Charlie the Tuna is pretty irritating, though it is kind of fun seeing a mascot last as many years as old Charlie has.
