I received samples of a number of the StarKist Tuna Flavor Fresh Pouches. including four varieties of Tuna Creations (Lemon Pepper, Hickory Smoked, Sweet & Spicy, and Herb & Garlic), Chunk Light Tuna, Albacore, Low Sodium Albacore, and Tuna Salad. I love that the pouches are easy to use, and don’t have the mess of a can, or as much to dispose of. These are perfect for quick lunches, travel and work.
The folks at StarKist also shared these recipes with me. I’m not imaginative with tuna so these are great.
