    Really glad that this exists. Had no idea that I needed sardines and mussels in a single bite, but it turns out that it’s darn amazing and it really gave extra depth of flavor to combine them. The squid is very good as well but it was the clear third wheel for me that I ate on its own (and still enjoyed). Quality was high for all of the seafood; the sardines had great balance of moisture/firmness with excellent texture overall. Flavor profile was relatively neutral but did not lack depth or nuance. The tin could easily be purposed in any direction/recipe that you wanted to take it. While I ate mine at room temp from the tin, these would be absolutely *fantastic* over pasta … and that’s probably how I’m going to eat them next time. This is an easy 4+ star tin on its own and definitely recommended.

    Ferrigno continues to deliver a high quality product in my estimation. Sure, you’re not getting the best in class when you’ve got 3 seafoods packed into one tin. But everything was better quality than I might have expected. The sardines looked a bit beat up (to be expected in a tin packed with several different types of seafood), but were pretty good on their own. Most were missing a fair bit of skin, but the flesh was tasty. The firmness was just slightly on the dry side, but only slightly. Still better than about 50% of the other sardines I’ve had. The mussels are delicious, great flavor and nice, meaty texture. Not too moist nor dry. I hoped for a little more from the squid on it’s own. It tasted nice, but I felt like it was missing just a little something. I tossed my last portion of squid on a potato chip and really enjoyed it. Maybe the squid needs a bit more seasoning than the other fish? For experimentations sake, a bite with all three is simply too much information to parse out what is going on. The squid doesn’t benefit a lot from either of the others. The mussels and sardine were pretty good together. However, I most enjoyed just feeling decadent and eating the three each on their own. The aromatics help impart an extra depth of flavor, though I’m not familiar enough with the mentioned Piment d’Espelette to know if I could pick out that flavor. Overall, this is a pretty great tin for the price. I can see keeping one of these on hand for when the mood strikes (that of wanting “all the seafoods” but not wanting to compromise).

    Delicious as a snack on its own. I liked the squid most of all. The sardines and oysters were also tasty, but fell apart easily. The seasoned oil is also worth re-using.

    the sardines in this one is really good!

    i’ll be honest and say i’ve been very hesitant to branch outside of shellfish/mollusks/mackerel/trout in my tinned fish journey, but trying the sardines out in this tin has made me very receptive to trying out sardines by themselves next. the sauce is very good; i ate this in a pasta! but the taste itself is very nice and flavorful, so i think i’ll like eating more sardines next!

    the mussels disappeared for me in this can, perhaps because i cooked my pasta too vigorously, but the squid was good as well. i will say it has the same consistency as the squid from the other ferrigno tin i had, which may or may not be a good thing depending on how much you like soft texture/chew in your squid.

    overall, 4 stars for taste.

    Bought this tin as a cover to try tinned squid knowing I would at least like the mussels and sardines. I was pleased to discover it was tasty and a texture I had. It experienced with squid – much more meaty and not at all chewy. The spiced oil was delicious and complemented the seafoods well. I felt the sardines a bit dry and looked a little rough b it they were firm and meaty. I served over rice and added some capers for some additionally briny flavor that I felt balanced the tin well. I would happily consume this tin again and I can now look forward to further tinned squid endeavors!
