I am usually a huge fan of Costco and their products. One of my friends told me that their canned tuna,Genova Tonno Tuna,is imported from Italy and much better than regular canned tuna. I heard at a culinary course at the 92nd Street Y (the Y in Manhattan) that Flott and Callipo,two brands of tuna both imported from Italy,are amazing and completely different than your Starkist or other standard canned tuna. I always wanted to try it out,so I thought I’d give Costco’s Italian imported tuna a try. I must say that I am not terribly impressed. It just seemed like a more expensive can of regular tuna. The smell was equally fishy,the taste was essentially the same,and honestly I like albacore tuna better. I still want to get my hands on a can of Flott tuna and Callipo tuna,but until that point,I will stick to the “standard”canned tuna.
Here is a photo of what Costco’s Genova Tonno Tuna looks like…granted you can’t see how it tastes from my photo,but you can see that it looks like every other can of tuna:
