    Nuri’s are really popular, and can be quite delicious. Since these cans are hand packed and hand processed, my experience shows the taste can vary greatly from can to can. Heat and salt levels seem to be the flavors in the Nuri Spiced Sardines that varies the most.

    I’ve had 2 cans (so far) of the EXTRA SPICY version on this page. The first can, I removed the fish from the tin, and enjoyed them straight off the plate. They were very tasty, but in fact, the flavor was pretty bland, with only the faintest hint of heat coming through. The second can I ate straight from the tin, and this time, they were noticeably spicier than the usual Nuri Spiced Sardines, but not as spicy as Flower Brand.

    The were very tasty, great quality fish, there were extra peppers in the can (as described), and in the end your tin may or may not be spicier than the usual Nuri offering. The best advice I can share is to eat them from the tin if you want to maximize the spiciness of the peppers.

    Maybe 3 stars is too low, but I’m not a huge Nuri fan to start with, and I would have happily gone 4 or 5 stars if these were more assertive in being “Extra Spicy.” Having said that I’ll bump it up to 4, it was spicier after all….

    I ate the third can last night. It’s flavor profile was different from the first two in my review above. The fish in this tin, which I ate from a plate out of the tin, were quite noticibly more spicy than either of the other two tins. There you have it: three Nuri tins; three different tastes.

    Nuri spiced sardines are at the top of the list, rightfully so, for many tinned sardine aficionados, including myself. Being a fan of Nuri sardines and a fan of spicy foods, I didn’t hesitate to grab a few tins of this variety.

    Upon opening the tin, these look, and smell, just like any other tin of Nuri spiced sardines. Before trying a bite of the plump sardines, I tried a sip of the oil and it definitely had a bit more heat to it than the regular spiced sardines. At first bite, however, I didn’t detect the same increased level of heat.

    After finishing off the tin, I can conclude that these are a bit spicier than the standard Nuri spiced sardines, but if you measure heat on a scoville scale and seek an adrenaline rush with each bite, you may be disappointed. You can’t go wrong with Nuri spiced sardines, and if you like a bit of extra heat, these will make a fine meal or snack.
