    As always, King Oscar mackerel won’t win any beauty contests, and this tin had one large and two smaller pieces packed in with several pepper slices. The texture was a bit chewier and drier than usual for KO, but it was still moist. Flavor was mild and the pepper flavor very subdued, with just the faintest of heat after the finish. This did have a bit of sweetness from the sugar. If you like the flavor of jalapeños without a lot of heat, this might be your tin.

    I’ve been tasting a few different tins of mackerel and, I’m not really sure what they’re doing to achieve this, but KO filets have been consistently more succulent/juicy/fatty/ tender than those filets of the next tier of pricing. I don’t care that they fall apart a little/ aren’t as visually defined – they have the texture and succulence of a proper confit. Something about the highly industrial process I guess?

    Ignorance of the actual practices of KO aside – THIS TIN IS BOMB. Something clicked for me when I chewed my first piece. As previous review states “If you like the flavor of jalapenos without a lot of heat, this might be your tin”. Precisely. Utterly craveable & somewhat strong jalapeno flavor with very mild heat. Even if you’re seeking heat, this is a very unique jalapeno experience & worth a try.
    This is a tin I want to eat everyday.
