Van Camp's Complaint - Something In My Tuna

Review by kathie123 on 2008-03-25
SCOTTSBORO, ALABAMA -- I just opened a can of "Van Camp's" chunk light tuna in water.. and I got sick to my stomach when I was adding mayo. There was a long "tube" in it, I guess fish guts, as I picked it out and looked at it I saw that it was filled with greenish gook.

I will NEVER buy this tuna again!!

In fact, I may give up tuna for good!!YUK

Well, this the risk you run when you're eating something from a once living thing. Occasionally, some other 'body part' will get through the process.
I just think it's kind of funny that you're okay with eating one part of the fish, but when another part inadvertently shows up, it's disgusting!
To each their own...

As they used to say about KFC chicken, "Parts is Parts!"

I would have had the same reaction you did, in fact if I let my mind wander and really think about all the stuff/parts we consume without even realizing it, I probably wouldn't be able to eat much of anything!

You THREW AWAY the magical green flavor tube? That's the best part!

Heaven said it best Kathie.
I once bit into an "organ" from some Sardines that I was eating. Just the thought of that makes me want to hurl!
Can someone please tell me why things always go wrong when mayo' is nearby?

Hey Zz, at least it was not a tarter fiasco.

kathie123, I do understand your feelings on this matter and I my self stopped eating Tuna from a can a long time ago. I feel when you get things in a can you really don't know whats in it, unless its SPAM then every one know whats in there.

When I go over seas I eat stuff that you can see not only what is in it but you can see what it was too.

Zz, you of all people should know the answer to your own question being the king of mayo'.

Lidman, I'm sure there are worse things in Spam than tubes of greenish gook.

I've just envisioned the perfect meal: Spam on Wonder Bread, bar-b-que pork rinds, a tall glass of Tang, and a Twinkie for dessert.
Dang, that's good eatin'.

Heaven17, at least in Spam they tell you they really don't know what it is and they don't care and it's all ground up so one can't really tell anyway.

I think what you should skip is the Tang and Twinkie and go for an RC Cola and a moon pie.

Okay, Lidman. This is scary, but I thought about RC Cola and a Moonpie while I was compiling that.
That's a meal in and of itself.

As a sidenote, my mother loved RC Cola and Moonpies, and she'd always pour peanuts into the soda. As you take a sip of soda, you get a mouthful of peanuts, too. I have no idea who started that odd little ritual.
Do people still do that or was that just a Mississippi thing way back when?

Heaven, I have seen that out here in Denver. Beer Nuts really are good in.....Well beer. The most disgusting thing that I ever saw was how my parents (both from the South) would put cornbread into a glass of that yucky BUTTERMILK! It was horrifying to see them drink that concoction!

Heaven - didn't I see somebody do that in a movie? I can't remember what movie it was.

cherpep, I know that Sissy Spacek did the peanuts in Coke thing in one of my favorite movies, CRIMES OF THE HEART, but that's the only one I can think of.

zzrokk, I'm familiar with cornbread in milk (and have eaten some myself and it's only good with homemade cornbread), but I've never heard of it with buttermilk. Eww. I've never understood how people drink that stuff.

That's it, Heaven! Thanks! It was gonna make me crazy.

Heaven17, when I was growing up here in NC I used to live on RC Cola and Moonpies. They still have RC Cola but it's getting harder to find. We did do the peanut thing when we had and extra nickel, good stuff! Ah the good old days...
