to think tuna cans are the wrong size?

Is it just me? Tuna cans are two big for one person (1 sandwich) but too small for 2. Not a biggie in the grand scheme of things but I've pondered it today.

Perfect for a tuna salad for.two though

I prefer to think of them as making a deliciously generous tuna sandwich grin

I buy those mini ones that come in packs of 3- ideal for one portion

I just eat the tuna without the sandwich bit. Big squirt of sweet chilli sauce and eat it straight from the tin.

Why doesn't tuna come in cans with ring pulls?

(And is the Tuna family still flourishing?)

No, my cat enjoys the leftovers smile

AuntieStella tuna does come in cans with ring pulls.

Don't know about the tuna family though!

Mine didn't! (Waitrose own label)

I really had to fossick to the back of a drawer to find a can opener. Not a pleasant experience, I'll have you know!

I just make two sandwiches wink

is a fat bitch

Lilaclily Sat 16-Apr-16 20:20:17

Aren't there still big and little tins ?

PPie10 Sat 16-Apr-16 20:21:30

It's more than enough for two people thoughconfused

YY...two cans is perfect for 3 servings (so I make up three portions of tuna pasta salad for lunch in one go). Half-sized cans are too small.

You can get tuna in ring pull cans but it's a lot harder to drain properly.

Jaimx86 Sat 16-Apr-16 20:54:29

Eat a regular can for lunch every day. Would like a twiddly bit more in tbh.

PPie10 Sat 16-Apr-16 21:11:09

Barbara you need to pull the ring back but not completely remove the cover, then press down firmly for a few seconds with the can tipped over. It drains perfectly.

You can get tiny tins.

Um I made one tuna and mayo sandwich with one yesterday blush

Me too grin

Or it makes enough tuna mayo pasta for 2

cornishglos Sat 16-Apr-16 22:31:59

Soup cans... are they for one person or two?

I like sainsburys own mini tins in a pack of three. Tuna in olive oil - yum yum

MaidOfStars Sat 16-Apr-16 23:30:03

My husband always has one of the small cans in a sandwich. Is this too much?

thenightsky Sat 16-Apr-16 23:34:32

Depends on whether contents of the tin are 'tuna flakes' or 'tuna steak'.

Steak is more tuna crammed into a smaller tin and therefore better value.

I've studied this, obv.

Perfect for you and to give a bit to the cat smile
