Vocal Point sent me an email one day with a $1.00 off coupon any StarKist Creations pouch. And I printed it and went to my local grocery store right away and guess what! They pouches were on sale for $.98. So I got the pouch for FREE! I wish I could have printed more. Everybody loves the word FREE, or at least I do.
To get down to the review here is what StarKist has to say about their new Flavor Fresh Pouch:
- No draining, no mess
- Low in fat and as little as
60 calories per serving*
- High in protein and Omega–3's
- Available in 6 varieties:
Hickory Smoked Tuna
Sweet & Spicy Tuna
Lemon Pepper Tuna
Tomato Pesto Albacore Tuna
Mango Chipotle Salmon
I love the variety of all the flavors that they come in. I've used the Sweet n spice before in this lettuce wrap recipe and served it with a side of miso soup... YUM! I've used the Lemon Pepper to mix in with rice and it makes a complete meal. So here is my recipe for my Lettuce Wraps.
4 pieces of iceberg or Romaine lettuce
1 tomato (diced)
1/4 cup matchstick carrots
2 tsp mayonnaise (optional)
1/4 cup chopped pecans or cashews
1/4 cup cranberries (optional)
Place lettuce leaves on plate. Top lettuce with carrots and tomato. Place 1/4 of the Tuna Creations® on each lettuce wrap. Top with cranberries and nuts. Wrap tightly and eat.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cost: Very Affordable: $0.01 - $3
Price on the Starkist Tuna is Very Affordable. You can find them at your local grocery store. If they don't carry them let your grocery store know and I'm almost sure that they will get them. When not on sale I found the tuna pouches to range anywhere between $.98 - $1.27
Very Affordable: $0.01 - $3
There is literally no prep required to eat the StarKist Tuna Creations. You can even eat them out of the pouch with crackers or chips.
Texture: Nice n Flaky! Just what you expect fresh tuna to taste like. If you add any type of sauce or liquid it may break down the flaky-ness. So I suggest not to mix too much.
Taste: StarKist Tuna Creations come in 6 different flavors. So there is one for everyone. My husband always adds more pepper to the Lemon Pepper flavor, but it doesn't need it. They are jam packed with enough flavor for the average person... lol
EXTRA LARGE! I love Starkist Tuna Creation pouches. They are cheap, full of flavor, versatile and everyone loves them. Try them out today!
