Bumble Bee Spicy Thai Chili Sensations Review

Bumble Bee Tuna Sensations: Spicy Thai ChiliBumble Bee totally flipped the concept of tuna upside down with the Spicy Thai Chili Sensations. The Sensations concept is like a Tuna upgraded. Instead of the traditional canned stuff packed in water or oil, this comes in a can with a no-mess, no-fuss, easy to peel open foil lid. The tuna is already seasoned and there is little or no liquid - anybody who has ever had tuna juice spill all over the counter, clothes and stank up the office knows that this is a big deal.

While that's good, what's even better is the flavor. Forget traditional tuna. Forget having to mix it with mayo and all other types of condiments to get it moist and tasty. Bumble Bee did all the work for you and when you try the Spicy Thai Chili, you'll go wowza (not just wow)! Read the name again slowly so you'll notice that all 3 words (spicy, thai and chili), are synonyms for muy caliente ... hot! Although I'm a lightweight when it comes to spicy foods, I must say that I loved every bite of it. The 'heat factor' was manageable (for me) and seemed to just make the flavor all that much better.

One can (5 ounces) provides 190 calories, 8 grams of total fat (13% of the RDA, but only 1.0 gram of saturated fat (5% of the RDA). There is also 14% of the RDA for cholesterol, 23% of the RDA for sodium (550 mg), 17 grams of protein and 11 grams of total carbohydrates (1 gram of fiber and 10 grams of sugar). Bumble Bee Sensations also contains 166% of the daily value for omega-3 fats per serving. Hello!

If you are watching the sodium in your diet, then take note of the amount. One can cost $1.29 at the time of purchase, and it is well worth it because this can be a part of so many quick lunch ideas. I paired this with a slice of bread, a small home-made salad, and I was full until dinner. Will I buy it again? I already went back and stocked up!
