King Oscar “Tiny Tots” Brisling (Sprats) Sardines in Extra Virgin Olive Oil


Back in olden times, King Oscar used to offer their products in the USA under three different brand names, depending on the region of the country they were being sold in. The three brands were King Oscar, Tiny Tots, and Spirit of Norway. Over the years the Spirit of Norway brand was phased out, but the Tiny Tots following was just too devoted to the brand. Legend and lore say that there’s a little more “royal love” in the Tiny Tots than in the King Oscar. Who are we to argue with irrational passions?

    No difference between these and the King Oscar Sardines (Sprats). In my opinion, these are a bit on the mushy side and the oil isn’t anything to write home about, but its cheap and good eating!

    I preferred the King Oscar Cross-Pack sardines, but I’d happily buy these again to mush up on toast.

    I liked these but they were not ‘exciting’ just good simple eating sardines. I love the smaller size, a preference I am finding I have. No skin, scales or bone issues and they were excellent with toast and pickles. Definitely worth their cost, I would buy them again.

    if there is such a thing as a goto/daily sardine — this is mine. oily, salty, umami, lightly smoked, moderately firm, small fish in oil.

    super approachable. this is actually the tin i recommend to friends who say they don’t like sardines.
