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.

Good Food, July 23, 2014
These are great especially if you like black pepper. There's no salt either.

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.

Not a substitute for the stellar MW Polar Kipper Snacks, but it will do once in a while, March 20, 2014
I just tried the Crown Prince Natural Kipper Snacks and not loving it. I usually get the MW Polar Kipper Snacks, 3.53 Ounce Units (Pack of 18) on Subscribe and Save but for 2 months now they have been Out of Stock so I decided to try the Crown Prince since they are wild caught and reviews have been favorable. Alas, having one now for lunch and had to stop eating to write this review. Had it been great, I would have kept eating and written the review afterward.

First, the shipment I received the packaging looked good on the outside but as I opened each of the individually cartoned cans, the cans themselves were covered in a sticky golden oil. No smell or odor or puncture in the can, nor do the 18 boxes show any damage, so I figure this is a usual thing with the Crown Prince Kipper Snacks? I also buy the Crown Prince Sardines for my dogs (I prefer CENTO) and never experienced oily cans. However gross as it was at first, again no effect on the actual contents of the cans or the flavor and freshness of the kipper snacks. Just dirty cans hard to wash with water... wear gloves and hope none of it gets on the plate.

Then, tasting the Low in Sodium variety, meh... Nothing to write home about, unlike the MW Polar brand I actually gift to my mom and dad, they are so good! And I have a little tickle in my throat. Maybe just psyching myself out, but if you are looking for robust flavor, meaty texture and consistent freshness and clean cans... go for the MW Polar Kipper Snacks, 3.53 Ounce Units (Pack of 18).

On the plus side, these kipper snacks are made without additives, preservatives, vinegars or oils and is well-suited for anyone on the Candida Diet and/or dealing with systemic yeast overgrowth. Just wish it tasted and textured as well as the MW Polar Kipper Snacks, 3.53 Ounce Units (Pack of 18)

Will order only if the MV Polars are Out of Stock...

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.

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.

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!

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.

Canada..., October 6, 2013
PRICE= 3.5, one of the only BPA free fish cans
SIZE= 3.25oz, majority of fish sold in cans vary in size between 3.5, 6.7, 7.2, 14, 17 ounce
TASTE= True wood smoked fillets. Crown Prince's Kipper is dry but has the lowest sodium herrings available. The red cans of Crown Prince has twice the sodium
MEAT= 92g
MIX= Can separate whole fish

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.
