Crown Prince Natural Kipper Snacks - Low in Sodium, 3.25 Ounce Cans (Pack of 18)

Product Description

Crown Prince Natural Kipper Snacks are a traditional European food dating back as far as the fourteenth century. The method of preparation demands that only the finest fillets of herring be smoked over natural hardwood chips. Delicate in flavor, these kippers are packed without any additional salt, in BPA free cans. Kipper Snacks are firm and flaky in texture and contain omega-3 fatty acids. Just one can provides over one-third of the recommended daily allowance of protein. Try them in salads, casseroles or sandwiches.

Fish is my main diet. I try and consume only small fish from reputable sources. No fish from China or Asia, only from Canada, US, Germany and cold Baltic Seas except sardines from Morocco. I am not worried about the added ingredients of tomato sauce, oil, water, etc. since I never consume that part of the can where sodium lingers around plus all additives, I only consume the fish and dump the rest of the mix. I always prefer smoked since the producer has to sell the fish in one piece instead of pieces of fish floating around in juice regardless of the juice type. Fillets are usually sold in some type of tomato juice, water, oil, etc. I never get the chance to taste the real fish which I am after so experience has proven to me to trust smoked more than filet. Filet is always soft and hardly tastes like fish and for that reason always sells less than smoked as well.

My goal is to get the most PROTEIN, CALCIUM and VITAMIN D and B-12 without sacrificing TASTE. No farm raised fish for me, only wild fish. I do not trust what is printed on the Nutrition Facts of the labeling in majority of times since after consuming thousands cans from hundreds of different producers, I have noticed a considerable manipulation of numbers in the NUTRITION FACTS when comparing all those cans time after time. It is obvious to me that there is much misrepresentation especially when it comes to protein on these cans. Canned fish are sold everywhere so prices vary much and Amazon does not have the best prices at all on all since there are many great stores that offer canned fish for unbelievable prices so shoppers need to do their search accordingly. Majority of the canned fish in a flat form shipped by Amazon were shipped to me somehow damaged, bent, cracked open regardless since those cans were not protected properly during shipping due to its weight so remember to have your camera ready.

Smoked sprats from Baltic Seas are the smallest of all only one inch long and I get some 18 sprats in a 4oz cans. Here is the scoop for salmon, herrings and sardines. Sardines, sprat and Alaska salmons offer more calcium since those are complete fish with bones and skin unlike herrings. Herring fillets in mix offer less taste and more additive unlike the smoked herrings which are whole fish with great taste so the extra charge is for the sauce not the fish where I dump anyway so fillets have never made any sense to me. Salmon and sardines offer more protein per calorie but sardines have the most saturated fat per calorie not per serving size. For higher Omega 3 to 6 ratio and vitamin B, I consume Herrings but for high vitamin D and calcium I consume sardines, sprats and Alaskan salmon with bones, skin and all. Check out the comment section of my review for links to other fish with great taste. It is so stupid to purchase farm raised fish which pollute the environment with added carpet dye for coloring before selling it to consumers without any knowledge about farm raised fish practices.

Convenient, Nutritious, and Tasty, August 9, 2013
I eat a can of Crown Prince Kipper Snacks with my lunch at work. The black pepper adds a nice flavor. I microwave some frozen vegetables, and I mix in some avocado and the Kipper Snacks to this mixture. I eat some bread on the side too. This lunch is much more nutritious than fast food. (Although this lunch is not much cheaper than fast food.) -I've been eating kipper snacks with my lunch for a few years, and I'm still not tired of them.

Very Pleased With This Purchase, January 14, 2014
I was truly , truly pleased by the fact that the cans are BPA free and that the fish is not loaded down with salt. (70 mgs sodium per one can serving). Crown Prince Natural Kipper Snacks are absolutely delicious. As a matter of fact since I did not feel inspired to prepare a complete dinner from scratch, this came in quite handy. The can is "easy-peasy" to open. I just squeezed some fresh lemon juice on this tasty snack, added some leftover steamed vegetables~~~and voila! I thoroughly enjoyed my meal! Most definitely, I will order this product again. Plus, I highly, highly recommend it.

Great taste, better than the red label!, July 17, 2013
This same product has 26 reviews for a total of 4.5 stars out of 5 here: Crown Prince Natural Kipper Snacks, 3.25-Ounce Packages (Pack of 24). I've bought it myself and it is great. Enjoy!

Very good!, March 12, 2014
These kippers have a nice smoked flavor that is not too strong. I typically add a little lemon juice, paprika, various herbs and sliced avocado and have these with my salad for lunch. They are not too fishy-tasting at all. I like that the cans are BPA-free. My husband loves these too.

Great quick protien., February 7, 2014
The fishy smell is not as I thought it was more smokey than fishy. I like it with some cream cheese and tomatoes on a multi-grain cracker. Great deal for the bulk!

Always wonderful!, May 27, 2014
I've been ordering these for a few years now, so clearly I think they're worth the expense. I love kippers, but not the kind packed in oil, and I'm trying to avoid a lot of salt in my diet, so these fit the bill. I also prefer to buy kippers that are wild caught (are herrings even farmed?), sustainably sourced, and naturally smoked as there kippers are. I have given some cans to friends as gifts and they love them too. You get what you pay for!

Tasty!, May 24, 2014
Very pleased with this purchase. Add a little salt and olive oil for a tasty treat! I like the free shipping but 8 days is a long time. That is the reason for only 4stars.

Inferior Product, February 26, 2014
Opened two cans of 18 can order. Both cans had 5/6 product content and 1/6 water. Fish flesh was water logged. Did not have promised smoked flavor. Very disappointed. Buy King Oscar next time.

Flavorless, February 13, 2014
Understood it is low in sodium, but didn't expect it to be low in flavor as well. Would not reorder this product again.
