I recently discovered Genova brand "Tonno" in cans. It's a yellow fin tuna labeled as "solid light" , it's packed in olive oil, and it's absolutely... FANTASTIC!!
There's just nothing like this in cans. After years and years of Bumble Bee, this is quite a discovery. Each mouthful is so savory, so full of rich flavor, all I can say is this:
Genova tuna will spoil you forever.
Now, yes, there are some designer tunas in glass jars from Italy labeled "ventresca" that I'm sure are wonderful as well. But at $1.99 a can, Genova is going to be my "go to" tuna.
Any other tuna stories?
I'm also a Genova Tonno fan. ONCE, Trader Joe's had solid tuna, in OO, in jars. A bit price till I realized almost twice the size of standard can. I splurged and have regretted ever since only buying ONE can!?! Have never seen it at TJ's since. One market near me has jarred (ventresca) but it's a serious splurge... almost $6 for pretty much what you get in stand can at less than half that price.
I just returned from our local Publix store with a couple of the 5 oz. cans of "solid light premium yellowfin in olive oil" for $1.85 each. I sure hope I like it!
I eat their Solid White occasionally. Didn't realize it was CotS. Funny because of major brands, I much prefer Bumble Bee.
I used to love that Genova tuna, but last year we decided once and for all to get off all canned goods that use BPA in the can liners. I buy Wild Planet pole-caught now. It's very tasty and their cans do not have BPA. There are a few manufacturers waking up and making these changes and as they do, I am easing some cans back into our life - Eden Foods' beans, Muir Glen tomatoes, Amy's soups, but other than that, no cans.
The BPA is apparently onlyh found in larger cans. In the small 5.5 oz size there is no BPA. I did some research about this issue with Cat food, and it's only in the 12 oz and above in the cat food.
This is also a big issue (though under the radar) with "microwave safe" dishes, I only use glass, and NEVER byt frozen foods that have to be heated in their plastic dishes.
