I looked at the Tonnino brand when I was deciding on what to buy him but the Ortiz got better reviews on the whole (and the decider was the review where it said you basically had to put your nose in the can to smell it) so that's what I decided to go with.
Costco was banned from importing any seafood by some Government 'food agency a while back for not following the proper importing paperwork. Don't know how it all turned out.

For me, that doesn't work for two reasons. One it is in water and two it is albacore.

I was in Publix yesterday picking up a few items. Don't know what prompted me to look down at the canned tuna, but I did and there they were, several cans of yellowfin tuna in olive oil! Now they don't have any on the shelf. The price was $2.09 a can! Me thinks someone made a pricing error.

I wish someone around here would make that kind of error...that's about half what I am paying for yellowfin in olive oil.

Why do you think I left nothing on the shelf.

That's a great price Craig! I'm thankful for having a Trader Joe's close. They sell it for $2.39 a can.

And, thanks to Kayelle, I've added another item to our yearly TJ's foray.

I buy the TJ's yellowfin in oil, too - need to add that to my list. I only get to TJ's twice, maybe 3 times a year if I'm lucky.
