Ingredients: sardines (Sardina pilchardus), olive oil, chili and salt.

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.

    This was one of the best tin of spicy sardines that I’ve had the pleasure of sampling. First of all the box art lets you know that you’re in for something special. Cracking open the lid I was presented with a gorgeous display of perfectly packed little fish with a shimmering coating of oil on top. Each sardine was firm enough to come out of the tin without breaking apart and the texture was perfect, no spine crunch that I could detect. Spice level was more of a background note, I would give it a 1.5/5, just enough to notice but allow the sardines themselves to take center stage. Seasoning level was perfect also.
    I had a tin of the Silver Line spicy sardinellas the previous day because I really wanted to compare the Gold vs Silver tins. Except for some very minor differences (the texture seemed a touch firmer in the Gold) I feel that it’s essentially the same product, just packed in two different styled and sized packages. Silver Line is an individual serving whereas the Gold Line tine is really meant to be shared or be a centerpiece of a tinned seafood charcuterie board.
    In conclusion, if you want the perfect ideal of what a gourmet tin of spiced sardinellas should be like, look no further than this tin. I plan on keeping this on hand for special occasions or to introduce someone who is intrigued about sardines to the good stuff.
