I think these are pretty tasteless.

I buy 12 packs of these and keep them at the office:

Great link! The fisherman's eggs and pate are now on my to-do list.

something i found out this weekend: you can buy whole, fresh (i.e. not in a can) sardines for relatively cheap ($3.99 at whole foods, so i'm guessing $0.99 everywhere else) and just throw them on the grill. lots of thin, edible bones, but delicious nonetheless! apparently sardines can get pretty big. i bought four and the total weight was about 1.5 pounds. messy but tasty!

Can you PM member itsstillmatt with that info? He's mentioned before on here that he is clueless about fresh sardines. Thx.

haha i'm likely equally as clueless, the only difference being i bought a few and, not knowing what else to do, threw them onto a hot grill in an act of desperation.

These are the best canned sardines I have ever eaten (I am a sardine fan). These are wild, sustainably caught sardines from the California coast. Yum!

Might I propose a couple lovely serving suggestions:

1. Mash up sardines with cream cheese and spread on toasted bagels.
2. Toast bread, drizzle with olive oil, spread with mashed (or sliced) fresh avocado and layer with sardine filets.
3. The Swedes know fish: try Jansson's Frestelse . FYI, Swedish "anchovies" are really sprats or sardines.

When did you buy them? I feel like all of these I see now are product of Vietnam. And seafood from Vietnam is super sketch

They are California sardines, but as you correctly pointed out, packed in Vietnam. Nothing sketchy about them.

You don't find the fuel usage due to shipping fish from the US to Vietnam and back sketchy? You don't worry about the low pay in those factories? Those sardines should be called Sketchy Kill the Planet, not Wild Planet.
