Guide to Buying Canned Sardines - Page 8

post #106 of 157
Last weekend I was given the opportunity to consume some Riga Sprats. They came in a round gold tin and they were fantastic. only had them by themselves and with a bit of bread but I would love to eat them again with more options. I will have to find somewhere in chicago to buy more.

One of my favorite snacks are sardines or smoked oysters, doused in Louisiana Hot Sauce, and eaten on top of Chicken-n-a-Biscuit. This was introduced to me by one of the school janitors I used to go catfishing with while I was in high school.

I have also tried the Rigas in the gold tin. Got them at this euro/russkiy mart in la jolla. They were good. Better than the stuff I tried at traders.

I get these in the 5 pack at Costco.

I've been living off the $0.75 canned Brunswick sardines for awhile. They've become my go to breakfast as well as a great snack when out and about (playing sports) without many food options. I have a tin of those Riga Sprats as well bought at the local German Deli that I've been meaning to try.

I remembered this thread while I was eating some herring (Brunswick, Canada, cheap). I am inspired to go on a shopping trip soon to try out some of these. Thanks for posting it. Any chance of a guide to herring? I saw the post about TJ's and I will head there on my trip.

Tried some King Oscar brand that were packed in olive oil recently. Jesus they were awful.

I have always bought canned fish pretty much randomly and probably don't know if I've been eating good or bad ones, but the Brunswick are acceptable enough that I keep buying them. I would love it if there is something better out there, especially if it is cheapish.

If you've got a wholesale club nearby they usually carry packs of the Seasons that I posted above. They're a great deal.

I will give them a try. Where do they fit in the why-hierarchy?

I mentioned Seasons' Brand in the initial post. I think they have multiple canneries, but the only ones I've seen (or bothered to look at -- I buy the same stuff all the time now unless I see something new) were from Poland.

I just checked the box and they're a "Product of Morocco". Wild caught. Distributed by The Manischewitz Company.

I went out to a nearby Mediterranean/ethnic market and found Latvian Sprats Pate in the short gold and black can and I'm eating it right now. Pretty good. When I have a chance I will go by the Russian market and see what they have. This market had these and then a bunch of Moroccan sardines, some Mexican ones and some Thai. Any experience with the Mexican or Thai kind (some in tomato or chili sauces)?

Have Titus brand sardines in my pantry. Contains vegetable oil and product of Morocco. Sometimes they're great, othertimes once done eating their after taste will not go away and are a nightmare to burp up.
