We go through a lot of tuna fish in our house. My youngest absolutely loves it. As long as we prepare it simply it’s gluten-free, so its safe for him. Lately he’s very interested in helping me prepare the tuna. I only let him stir the tuna and mayo, because I worry about him cutting himself on the edge of the can while draining the tuna, or just making a big mess with the juices. I was offered the opportunity to try the latest product from Chicken Of The Sea – No Drain Tuna.


Using a patented process, Chicken of the Sea No Drain Tuna comes in a can and requires no draining and produces no mess. Solid, steak-like tuna is in every can, which also offers an easy-to-open convenient lid.

“Consumers have long enjoyed canned tuna for its many health benefits,” said John Sawyer, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Chicken of the Sea. “Now, our No Drain tuna offers the same great nutritional attributes in a more convenient can. With just a drop of liquid, our new product offers no mess, no draining and firm, moist and delicious-tasting tuna. We like to say that our new No Drain Tuna really is a ‘No Drainer’.”

Available in grocery stores nationwide, Chicken of the Sea No Drain Tuna is great straight out of the can or added to favorite meals, such as a classic tuna casserole, a tuna flatbread pizza or a tuna sandwich. Great tasting recipe ideas can be found at Chicken of the Sea’s research shows 74 percent of people ages 18-45 and 71 percent of people 46 years old and older would definitely or probably buy No Drain tuna. The research indicates that this launch is clearly a “No Drainer™”.

Chicken of the Sea – whose iconic Mermaid is turning 60 years old this year – has a long history of innovation, dating back to the early part of the 20th century, when it was the first cannery to commercially pack yellowfin tuna. Chicken of the Sea would later become the first national brand to introduce skinless/boneless pink salmon and specialty seafood products, including crab, shrimp, oysters and clams. Peel-and-eat cups, introduced in 2006, add to the list of innovations brought to consumers by the brand. A seafood category leader, Chicken of the Sea provides a variety of shelf stable seafood products, including tuna, salmon, crab, shrimp, oysters, clams, mackerel and sardines. The Chicken of the Sea brand and famous Mermaid icon are among the most recognized brands in America.


I received samples of new Chicken Of The Sea No Drain Tuna.

The cans are super easy to open, having a pull tab top. No more can opener! That means this tuna fish can be used while traveling, at work, while there’s no power, anywhere. I was a bit skeptical bout the tuna needing no draining. I’ve always had to drain every can of tuna we’ve ever bought. I was surprised to open the No Drain Tuna and see no liquid.

I turned the can upside down to see if liquid came out, and not one single drop did. That makes this an ideal tuna for my tuna fish loving son, because now I will let him completely prepare the tuna himself. The taste of the tuna was still great, exactly what we expect from Chicken Of The Sea.

Chicken of the Sea No Drain Tuna is available in grocery stores nationwide in four, 4-ounce varieties: Solid White Albacore Tuna, Solid Light Tuna, Solid Light Thai Chili Tuna and Solid Light Lemon Pepper Tuna. You can print a $.50 coupon on the Chicken Of The Sea Facebook page.

I have not seen these yet. I love the no drain idea and the easier to open can.

That is so cool! I often snag myself on lids or spill tuna juice all over the place. Tuna is so tasty and it fits in great as part of my diet plan, too!
