    I probably shouldn’t get so excited over a tin of KO’s but these were fantastic!

    These look fun! Deep rich oil and a myriad of spices and olives await. Any time I’ve had tins with add-ons they are usually at the bottom, here they were at the top! The aroma was quite pungent, a culmination of the fish and olives and surprisingly stronger than expected.

    Moderate firmness, not too firm and also thankfully mush. Clearly have soaked up the spiced bath and it altered the flavor profile for the better! The internal consistency is shrouded by the marinade and the bones are non-detectable. These would be an ideal first time tin for the newbie. Great straight, but I could see these adding a nice twist to anything they sit atop.

    Spice up your deen lineup with these! At this price point, grab a few!

    The best of the King Oscar sardines, by far. These were my favorite a long, long time ago but since then, KO and I have grown apart … I’d moved on and explored fancy, expensive frontiers of tinned fish. I thought maybe I only really liked their mackerel at this point, but honestly? HONESTLY? These are still very good. I was shocked that the texture was as good as it was – they’re soft but not at all mushy. Moisture is great and so is the seasoning. More olives and herbs at the bottom than I’d remembered as well! For this price, this is a really really solid tin that is worth mixing into your lineup.

    If you love the KO Mediterranean *mackerel* then you really owe it to yourself to see if you like these sardines. A surprise win for KO, worth buying at this price even if you’ve gotten into much much fancier tins than this.

    King Oscar rarely disappoints me. These Sprats are done right and are great on a salad, which I have done. These little fish deserve more than a saltine, but if that’s all you’ve got that is good too. I only wish they put more olives in the tin. Buy these! There is a lot of bang for your buck.

    Surprised at how great these are. Lovely layers of flavors, delicious olives, tender and moist fish. They break apart fairly easily but aren’t mushy. I enjoyed these a lot.
