No surprise Starkist is a ripoff, you may want to swear off Starkist...here from American Thinker;:tango_face_grin:

The Minimum Wage, Pelosi, Tuna and American Samoa
Paul Pelosi owns a $17 million investment in H. J. Heinz's company, which in turn owns ~75% of Del Monte Corp's stock. Del Monte is the parent company of StarKist. StarKist Tuna owns one of the two packing plants on American Samoa. Combined both plants employ over 60% of the population paying less than $3.75 a hour in wages.

Sometimes Starkist is all that's left on the shelf. Any other band is all sold out. Maybe that's a sign that
not a lot of people like it either. I can definitely taste the difference between it and Bumble Bee.
Especially in those little tuna salad snack cans with the crackers.

The Pelosi name was enough for me, too much chance a connection with only 7.5 billion people in the world.
What's the difference? Starkist only buys tuna butts, tuna lips?

This is can of Polar tuna, you can actually see the contour of the filet... The sardines and herring have a much less mushy texture as any other brand I've had, better flavor as well.

Skipjack makes up about 70 percent of the canned or pouched tuna. It's plentiful, so sustainability isn't an issue. ... The downside to canned skipjack is that the texture is often mushy, and the taste can be aggressively fishy. Albacore has a mild taste and produces firm chunks of meat.

Thanks once again to Gopher up here, I have tried 80 percent of the brands tested.
I am now going to make myself some Tuna salad with cans of Yellowfin Tuna.
The high buck eco stuff is worth the money; but then I get it here at clearance prices.:tango_face_devil:

From Bumblebee:
THE TYPES OF CANNED TUNA – SOLID WHITE ALBACORE TUNA, CHUNK WHITE ALBACORE TUNA, & CHUNK LIGHT TUNA
Common types of canned tuna include Solid White Albacore Tuna, Chunk White Albacore Tuna, and Chunk Light Tuna. But do you know the true difference between these various types? Let us break it down for you.

Solid White Albacore Tuna, also known as white tuna, possesses a firm and steaky texture. With its lighter colored flesh, commonly found in large albacore tuna, Solid White Albacore Tuna has a mild and fresh-tasting flavor that is great on its own, or in almost any recipe that calls for tuna.

Chunk White Albacore Tuna is another type of white tuna that we often find in the tuna aisle. While Solid White Albacore is packed with larger pieces, Chunk White Albacore Tuna is packed with smaller chunks that are still mild in flavor, firm in texture, and white in color.

Finally, Chunk Light Tuna is sourced from a variety of smaller tuna fish. Chunk Light Tuna typically consists of skipjack, but may also include yellowfin or big-eye tuna. Featuring a softer texture, this tuna tends to be darker in color with smaller, flakier pieces and a stronger flavor. Explore the difference between these various types of canned tuna in our

My wife has been buying the solid white albacore by Bumblebee for many a year. Only one we will eat. Some of the other stuff just looks like a mushy mess. Smells even worse. Kinda like cat food. Especially the starkist.

After telling my wife about this thread, she picked up some bumble bee, and I fixed our standard tuna/egg salad with dill relish, vidalia onion relish, and mayo.

We both were satisfied that bumble bee is the better tasting tuna.
starkist had been our tuna as long as I can remember.

Yes DG does sell Bumble Bee tuna. One thing they don't sell and I wish they did is Pace Picante sauce.

Did some experimenting over the last few days, found one from Aldi that tasted like road killed tuna.
China labeled, it was pretty horrible as life experiences go.
Funny thing about the Chinese Tuna, if I stack 3 or more cans together
they get warm, how many do you suppose it will take to reach critical mass? I wish they had labeling for that.
best wishes
