Which Trader Joe's canned tuna?

Sarah Jul 3, 2013 07:11 PM

Recalled there was consensus (CH-style) re the various tunas at TJ's - albacore, yellowtail, packed in water, oil, etc. Which was (were) deemed the best?
Did a search, but...no luck.

    Was there an official consensus? I know that I love the yellowfin in olive oil, and others do too.

        I'm eating this right now for the first time and I had to look it up to see what others thought. Best tuna I've ever had by a mile. Never really had high expectations for tuna but this is so good!!

          +1 for the yellowfin in olive oil - close to Italian tuna (not quite as good but lots cheaper)

            Oh, the Yellowfin Tuna in Olive Oil in a can is definitely the best one I have tried from there. Absolutely delicious...and TJ's sells it for such a great price. Tastes like gourmet tuna.
