The terms “spiced” and “spicy” are used pretty much interchangeably in the tinned fish world, to mean two different things: with a hot pepper (or hot pepper flavor), and with cloves/bay/carrot/hot pepper. There are many examples of both terms being used to mean both things.

We are so frustrated by how widespread this confusing inconsistent usage is that we’ve gone through our entire product line to correct the incorrect ones such that our description of “spiced” or “spicy” will always indicate which it really is, regardless of the packaging. “Spicy” = with hot pepper flavor. “Spiced” = with the cloves/bay/carrot/hot pepper flavors.

    You’ve tried Nuri spiced sardines, loved them, and noticed Pinhais on the label. You’ve sampled other brands’ spiced sardine offerings and had mixed experiences. Where do you go from here?

    These are part of Pinhais’ premium line, so they must be amazing, right? Nuri spiced ‘dines are already amazing… could this tin be better?

    I thoroughly enjoyed this tin. No mistaking, they’re Pinhais ‘dines. Lovely texture, nice aroma, and super delicious. If these aren’t at the top of the spiced ‘dine mountain, they’re an important step along the way.
