Spadea’s Instagram ad purchase was as advertised
It doesn't always happen, but the pop-up ad on my social media account turned out perfectly.
As you know, I've talked about my issue with buying canned fish. I love it and keep the house well-stocked.
My wife Jodi likes anchovies but draws the line at sardines and tuna. I try to eat it when she's not home as even the smell after opening the can bothers her.
Instagram clearly knows about my issue and bombarded me a few weeks ago with a new canned tuna company offering a great deal. So I bought in, hook, line, and sinker. No pun intended.
Natural Catch Tuna was delivered in a couple of days.
It sat on the shelf for a few weeks until Tuesday this week.
Before heading to the airport to pick up Jodi, I grabbed a can and peeled back the easy-to-open tab cover. The tuna comes packed in extra virgin olive oil but not too much.
A quick drain in the sink and I grabbed my chopsticks and dove in.
It was as advertised. Not oily, and not too salty. Flaky and delicious. No overpowering fishy smell, just a natural tuna taste.
The question is whether I'll be able to get Jodi to try it. I'm not holding my breath on that, but at least I have found a new go-to tuna brand.
