    Very good, well above average for sardines in tomato sauce. I’d put this at the same level as the Nuri tomato (not spiced) in both quality and flavor, plus the sardines might have been just a *little* more moist than Nuri. I do still prefer the Nuri spiced tomato as the king of the tomato tin genre, however.

    Ate this at room temp, straight from the tin with a SPOON – I can’t do chopsticks with these Ferrigno artwork tins or you’ll miss out on too much of the good stuff. I did feel the need to add some salt/pepper to this but I also do that for Nuri unspiced tomato. Important to note that they are $1 cheaper than the Nuri tomato as well. Would obviously be *even better* warmed up and in a more elaborate presentation.

    All in all, Ferrigno artwork tins are simply faaaantastic. It’s easy to see how much attention that Ferrigno pays to the non-sardine ingredients in all of their tins and this was no different. Buy this Ferrigno and all other artwork tin Ferrignos.

    These were good tomato sardines! I’m not usually a fan of sardines in tomato because the sauce is often too sweet for my taste, but the Tropezienne sauce was definitely more savory than other tomato sauces. I’d credit that to the capers, olives, etc.

    However, I was expecting at least some chunks of said capers, olives, etc. in the can–like with the lemon in Ferrigno LBM’s Sardines à la Bastiaise. Instead, the sauce was fairly smooth with no discernable pieces of veggies. Personally, I would’ve preferred a chunkier sauce, but flavor-wise they were good.

    Regarding texture, they were on the firmer end of the scale, and when they came apart they fell into distinct flakes instead of just all around disintegrating.

    Of course, a good chunk of why I bought them was the artwork. I love all the different Ferrigno tins, and in that respect this one didn’t disappoint.

    All in all, this was definitely a worthwhile tin to try!

    Another one of the Ferrignos with fun graphics. The tin had five fish, including one phatty that reminded me of the shape & size of their “La Bonne Mer Fisherman’s” style, packed in a thick tomato sauce. While I prefer to try a new tin straight from the can, I had already decided to heat this one up as I don’t care for cold tomato sauce. These were heated over low heat in a small pan and smelled quite nice with just a hit of fish. The texture of these seemed to be a bit drier than other Ferrigno tins, but the fault could be in the way I heated them up. While the olives, capers, and onions were chopped to finely to be seen, the sauce was very flavorful and balanced and did not overwhelm the fish. I almost wished there was more sauce. These flavors would lend themselves well to a sardine tomato soup. While I’m not a big fan of tomatoed deens, this was one that I enjoyed as the flavor was subtle and unique.
