Product Review: Fish in a Bag
Perhaps you've seen products at the grocery store, such as "Tuna in a Bag" or "Salmon in a Bag" and wondered if they are the same, better, or worse than their canned counterparts.
Allow me to tell you that the bag is superior to the can.
For roughly the same cost, the bag of fish doesn't trouble you with can openers, draining the liquid, or other typical issues with canned fish. Having tried the Starkist tuna version, the tuna was moist, tasty, and far more convenient to eat than a can.
Nutrition? Almost no fat (that which exists is those awesome EFAs), no carbs, and an astounding 40g+ of protein in one 7oz package, along with some B-vitamins.
Tuna's value as a food has been well-established. But as someone who consciously stayed away from "fish in a bag" for years, I'm a true convert. I probably won't ever buy canned fish again.

Sounds great, now if I could just develop a taste for tuna.Who, for Pete’s sake! Is opposing science? In fact, we want MORE science by CRITICALLY ANALIZING the evidence-Connie Morris, Kansas State BOE (bolding and underlining part of original quote, red is my emphasis)

I am a fan of all varieties of bagged meat: tuna, salmon, chicken, and turkey.
I don't like canned tuna, I can taste the nasty aluminum taste. None of that with the pouches, tastes fresher to me as well.I think it was two ninjas taped together, to make one GIANT NINJA!!!!

I was skeptical of bagged tuna for a while, but after trying it I'll never go back. It's more convenient and tastes better. I also have a few bagged tuna steaks that take 30 seconds in the microwave and are rather tasty. I am experimenting with a bunch of microwavable foods at the moment as sort of a prep period for college. The tuna in the pouch with lemon marinade is far superior to anything else thus far.

And if you don't like tuna, you can just mayonnaise the **** out of it.
And if you don't like mayonnaise, use soy sauce, peanut sauce, bbq sauce, whatever sauce it takes.

Not that expensive, and you can make some damn good stuff with one. If your dorm room has a smoke detector, you might have to disable it (not that hard) but it's worth it.sudo make me a sandwich!
