Solid white albacore tuna in water. Brand? Whichever is cheapest! Typically BumbleBee.

Tuna, was always just tuna to me, I could take it or leave it until. We had a small party and some new friends came and the wife brought her anti-pasto. It was wonderful and gone before you could turn around. I asked if she would mind telling me how to make it and she said yes but on one condition I had to use imported tuna. I did and I still use it today. It's not white but the darker meat and it's packed in oil and I've never gotten one I didn't like..I use A's Do Mar .

Chicken of the sea. I like it packed in oil (it just tastes better).

I don't find that brand makes so much of a difference, but I have learned not to buy whatever is on sale for two cans for a dollar. I prefer solid albacore packed in water; if I want to add oil to it, I can. (No pun intended) The solid stuff gives you way more meat.

I don't eat canned tuna that often, and so I find that the difference between a fifty-cent can and a dollar-fifty can is very much worth it for me. Enough meat for two sandwiches for a buck and a half? Big deal! Try doing that at McDonalds.

The pouch stuff, on the other hand, is just too expensive, unless it is on sale.
