King Oscar Sardines (Sprats) in Extra Virgin Olive Oil


The flagship product of the line, possibly the most loved can of tinned fish in the world. If you’re not sure where to start, start with these. If you you’ve already had these, welcome back. If you didn’t start with these and have never had these, your cultural education is incomplete until you have had them.

The standard against which all other tinned fish is judged. And in our opinion one of the best quality to dollar ratios you’ll ever find.

Two layer, 12-22 fish

    If you don’t have a daily driver sardine you just met it here. At this price point you’d be hard pressed to find a better tin of sardines. When I am lucky to have a handful of different sardine choices in my pantry I may go a few weeks without cracking a tin of these sprats… and then I open one up and remember how good they are.
    I don’t like to judge other people, but if you don’t have at least a few of these tins in your pantry, you might be doing something wrong 🙂

    Basic, cheap, yum. These are identical to the Tiny Tots (in case you prefer a bright yellow label to greet you in the pantry).

    A little mushy in my opinion, but I can’t complain for the price. I’d mush these up on toast any day.
