The terms “spiced” and “spicy” are used pretty much interchangeably in the tinned fish world, to mean two different things: with a hot pepper (or hot pepper flavor), and with cloves/bay/carrot/hot pepper. There are many examples of both terms being used to mean both things.
We are so frustrated by how widespread this confusing inconsistent usage is that we’ve gone through our entire product line to correct the incorrect ones such that our description of “spiced” or “spicy” will always indicate which it really is, regardless of the packaging. “Spicy” = with hot pepper flavor. “Spiced” = with the cloves/bay/carrot/hot pepper flavors (or in some cases other blends of savory spices).

Loved these. The tentacles are canned whole (as in, not cut into coins), with some pieces just as long as the can itself. Pleasant chew and great flavor. The sauce is really just a red oil but the added color complimented the Alfredo I ended up tossing these into.
