View Full Version : Tuna!

I bought up like $20.00 worth of TUNA today. I hate TUNA.. but, I am gonna suck it up. $0.79 for 30g of Protein... hell yeah. I am gonna try it with BBQ sauce, or check that list from previous posts.

I wanted to share this for you FRANKSTER... I am now cracking open the tuna.

DO I FIT IN YET? hahahaha :rolleyes:

20 bucks worth? thats only like 25 cans of tuna at your price. Check this, I get tuna from safeway, 12 cans of white flake tuna in water for 3.80. Beat that. That is three dollars and eighty cents. For twenty bucks, I could buy 63 cans of tuna.

That is 31 cents per can

Less than one cent per gram of protein.

God bless America.

American tuna sucks ****, no wonder so many of you complain about it. Ever look at the ingredients? You'll be hard pressed to find a brand that only puts tuna & water in the can. And if you really hate it, get the solid or chunked albacore. It should be white, not brown.

Twitzt, if you fit in? And you're not kidding? I hate tuna and that didn't stop me from buying 150 cans tuttut ;)

05-15-2001, 07:23 AM
any people in the uk can get tuna from Asda or Aldi's for about 20p (30 cents, ish) a can.

05-15-2001, 07:41 AM
keep it up, one day youll fit in ;)

05-15-2001, 08:06 AM

My tuna only has tuna, water, salt. Besides, since I dont like tuna, why should I worry about how it tastes? I'd gag down good fresh tuna just as readily as I'g gag down crappy tuna.

I must be one of the few people who loves tuna. I'd eat it all day if it wasn't so high in sodium.

05-15-2001, 05:39 PM
freak :D

05-15-2001, 06:44 PM
I just bought it today for 39 cents a can. :D :D

05-15-2001, 07:10 PM
I love tuna too, you are not alone :)

05-15-2001, 07:43 PM
I on the other hand DONT love tuna, but i stomach it anyway.:)

05-15-2001, 08:15 PM
I get albacore tuna in water. That is all it is...expensive ****. The kind we get is like $1.25 per can or something, heh. How long does tuna last for sitting in the cupboard?

05-16-2001, 03:11 PM
A bunch of Body Builders discussing the price of tuna LMFAO!!! :D

05-19-2001, 01:16 PM
I buy tuna (and lots of it) for 29 cents a can!!!


05-19-2001, 10:15 PM
29 cents?? sniff sniff, i want that too :(

05-20-2001, 06:59 AM
we should suggest group bulk buying on letsbuyit.com :D

05-29-2001, 03:16 AM
29 cents for tuna?! that's dirt cheap!!

i find tuna mixed with salsa takes the scent somewhat out :D

05-29-2001, 08:55 AM
my tuna- chunk white tuna, water. Not even salt. ;)

Tastes like absolute @$$, but doesn't have much of a "fishy" smell either. It's about 75 cents a can, tho. :-(

Maybe we can convince some supplement sites to start selling canned tuna?

for the british people you can get a litre of UHT skimmed milk for 27P was 21p a couple of months ago.
for this you get 33 grams protein and 50 grams carbs and only 1 gram fat. so for 81p you get 100 grams prot and 150 grams carbs and only 3 grams fat. plus a good source of many vit and minerals. its the best cheapest source i found except for what i get free.

hey guys,
speaking of tuna, ive been eating that stuff for the longest time. but i can NEVER get all the water out of the can, and i end up with semi-watered down tuna. if i try to squeeze the lid too hard, it folds over and all the tuna comes out. so how bout everyone post their tuna drying techniques and favorite recipes. hehe later :D

the doc

tuna is so dry by nature i like the excess water


06-02-2001, 07:39 AM
UHT <shudder>

06-02-2001, 12:03 PM
flake just drink it quickly or add cocoa pwder etc. you get used to it. also it last in hot wether so after work i go to my car before the gym and drink a litre of it while its warm and still has not gone off. taste pretty horrile though

06-02-2001, 03:03 PM
I'd rather use normal semi skimmed though.

06-11-2001, 06:06 PM
Yay! Tuna Discussion!!:D

okay....drying method? I buy white solid albacore in the handy fliptop 3oz cans....i pop the top and drain it over the kitties cat food. they love it. and by the time i'm done, it's dry.

cooking methods?

hmm....i was raised (we were poor for a time) with tuna sauteed with 1 tbsp olive oil, chopped onions, red pepper and black pepper, and garlic powder. I like mixing that with cottage cheese and one nuked potato. yummy.

the other way i like it is mixed with white beans and red onions, topped either with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, or italian dressing. depends on how decadent i feel...*lol*

06-23-2001, 08:38 AM
LOL! Tryska, I do the same thing...drain the tuna over the cats' bowls of kibbles :)

You can actually buy a cheap "tuna draining" tool at a kitchen/cooking-type store (a cheap one like Lechters, Linens & Things, etc). It looks like a mini-colander made of plastic but it is tuna can-shaped with a flip top that presses the liquid out of the tuna quite well.

06-23-2001, 08:45 AM
a tuna draining tool?

i'm sure it's handy and it works well.....but my range of kitchen gadgets consist of a can opener and a fork. oh and duct tape. *lol* oh i have a spaghetti draining spoon thing too.

06-23-2001, 08:50 AM
My only domestic talent is cooking...it's one of the only "female" things I do :D

I could probably have a kitchen gadget garage sale...and probably should, but that would involve cleaning/organizing, which is evil :eek:

06-23-2001, 09:27 AM
lol....I don`t even get the can opener out and the cats already know I`m opening tuna....meow...meow...like their in heat..
Just thinking...my one cat has added 2 pounds of body weight on tuna juice in the last few months, which is 25% ....how come I did not put on 50 pounds....maybe we are draining the real good part.....lol

06-23-2001, 09:41 AM

i know just what you mean.....my cats kick up a fuss if i either a bring out the sauteeting pan, or start preparing a salad because they sense that some impending tuna goodness is afoot *lol*...maybe if you put tuna juice on your kibbles you might eat more and gain too....:D

06-24-2001, 07:16 PM
THAT"S why one of my cats has turned into a bowling ball with legs! It's that Super Tuna Juice...

Okay, now we make a pact to bottle it, give it some psuedo-techno name, do a little quasi-research with voodoo statistics (i.e. draw the curve, then plot the data, throw out any findings that don't fit our hypothesis), come up with a slick marketing pitch and we're RICH!

06-25-2001, 07:27 AM
I'd be willing to go in on that business deal with ya IceRgrrl. I need all the extra loot I can get. Plus it doesn't sound like a bad idea....that is if you eat tuna 2-3 times a day 365 days a year. ;)

06-25-2001, 07:47 AM
haven't muscletech allready done that :p

06-25-2001, 08:31 AM
I'm sure we'll see in on the shelves sometime soon :D

Ya know, this is the only place I can think of where you can get involved in such a long discussion about tuna!
