StarKist Bold Tuna Creations Tapatío with Lime

Buy snacks on Amazon #ad

Taste test: Tapatío is one of my favorite hot sauces, so when I saw that it was the flavor basis for this packet of tuna, I had to try it. The packaging here was similar to Bumble Bee's tuna packet, but unlike Bumble Bee, StarKist didn't include a spoon. I wasn't in the mood for a sandwich, so I still ate it with a spoon; it just happened to be one from my kitchen.

I opened the packet to find just a slight reddish tint, not all that different from ordinary canned tuna. It looked very moist. I grabbed a spoonful and bit in to find a zesty tuna taste initially, soon transitioning into a very hot one. Very. There was so much heat that I really have no idea whether I could taste lime. In fact, I can't even evaluate the taste of the tuna, because the heat of the Tapatío was so dominant. If you like the taste of hot sauce, but in a mild way, you should probably add your own preferred type of hot sauce, in an amount you're comfortable with, to regular tuna.

Smell test: Zesty tuna smell, kind of pickled too.

From the package: “Lightly marinated premium chunk light tuna” ... “70 Calories per pouch” ... “Product of Ecuador” ... “Fire up your taste buds and get ready for a bold hit of flavor. We've partnered with Tapatio and added their hot sauce and a touch of lime juice to our classic chunk light tuna. This perfect blend is ready to enjoy on corn chips, on a salad, in a taco or straight out of the pouch.” ... “Contains: Fish (Tuna)”
