Flavor Name: In Extra Virgin Olive OilSize: 3.75 Ounce (Pack of 12)
Simple review: if you are someone who has tried sardines and think they are disgusting, QUIT BUYING 99¢ CANS AT THE GROCERY STORE AND THINKING THAT IS ALL THAT IS OUT THERE.

There are plenty of brands out there in cheap tins for under a buck at most grocery stores, and the bulk of them are total garbage. Mustard, tomato, lemon, hot sauce, doesn't matter, none of that helps. You open the tins and they reek of fish, and make your friends/family/co-workers complain about the smell. And the fish are soft, mushy, and totally fall apart on a fork.

These King Oscar sardines are perfect to introduce or re-introduce yourself to what was once a "working man's delicacy." There was a time when almost every working man had a tin or two of sardines in his lunch pail as a snack, or part of a mean. Consumption of canned fish probably peaked in the 1950s, and that was a time period when the best fish people could expect to have away from the ocean was canned. Maybe people being better off with higher middle-class incomes made sales fall for the past 50 years . . .

Of all the brands available at most stores you could say these King Oscar sardines are a "premium" brand. I would say more mid-priced. There are probably many small manufacturers in Europe that offer different, distinct products made of different fish with different recipes. I've seen some import food stores that offer a small variety, but usually at a pretty premium price. All I can say is that for a little more than $2 a tin these King Oscar sardines are the best you can get for a small investment. The olive oil makes the best packing flavoring (skip all the other flavors used to mask the taste of poor quality fish). These fish have no overpowering smell when you open the can.

Flavor Name: In Extra Virgin Olive OilSize: 3.75 Ounce (Pack of 12) Verified Purchase
Encouraged by television chef Alton Brown, I took the plunge and bought a can of sardines today (King Oscar, of course). Now, I've avoided sardines and anything else that might have a strong, "fishy" taste for my entire 58 years, firm in my belief that fish is smelly, nasty, full of bones, and just plain gross. How wrong I was!

Armed with chopsticks (a great way to eat sardines) and ready to throw the brisling can into the garbage should my fish fears be realized, I dug in--and fell in love. King Oscar brisling are absolutely delicious. No nasty fishy taste or smell, these luscious beauties were consumed in a wink. Every bite was sheer pleasure. Sardines? Delicious? Who knew?

I've enrolled in Amazon's subscription plan so that I receive twelve cans of brisling at regular intervals, AND save a bit of money. The can purchased today at a local store cost $3.49, while twelve cans from Amazon cost $2.66 each. No, you won't be able to buy your dream yacht with the savings, but you should be able to buy an extra can or two of King Oscar thanks to the price difference!

Flavor Name: In Extra Virgin Olive OilSize: 3.75 Ounce (Pack of 12) Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I am by no means a sardine connoisseur and have never experienced higher end sardines such as these. The first difference I noticed is the extremely small size; it must be much harder to obtain and process these tiny fish especially since they are delicate and tender and fall apart so easily. My usual cheap brand sardines are huge compared to these and have much firmer flesh. I have posted a picture if you would like to see the size comparison.

One of the pros of the King Oscar tiny sardines is that the bones are hardly noticeable. The bones in my usual brand are pretty large and it grosses me out so I usually take them out, which is messy and inconvenient.

The taste is hard for me to rate since I am used to my normal brand and don't have a lot of experience with different brands. I found the King Oscar a bit more fishy tasting, but not unpleasantly so. I really liked them being packed in olive oil.

Finding consistently good sardines in the American market is a challenge. I've tried cheaper, but there is always a nasty can in my purchases. I have never had a bad can with the olive oil version of King Oscar. I first had these in the 1960's with the old key wrapping the lid off the top can. Nothing except the can has changed. But I will say the packaging from decades ago was more impressive, if that matters at all. And yes I know there are some southern European brands that are fantastic and probably the height in sardine quality. BUT, I've found them to be hard to find and even worse, priced too high. Maybe there are other sources I do not know about, but until that day, I'm buying cases of 12 for delivery. (there are no consistent local sources for this product locally anymore, sigh... my guess is, if there is a large Scandinavian population like the Midwest, it might be much easier to pick up on the grocers shelves.)

Flavor Name: In Extra Virgin Olive OilSize: 3.75 Ounce (Pack of 12)
I've never been a big flesh eater of any kind and was vegetarian for the past 3 or so years. Now that I'm into low carbing, it's taking me awhile to get used to eating fowl and fish again. (I don't have the taste for beef anymore.) However, sardines had always been a favorite of mine since childhood -- any brand as long as it was in oil -- but once I tried King Oscar sardines in olive oil some years back, I was hooked on nothing but King Oscar's and to this day can't eat any other brand without throwing the whole can away after one bite. (My husband and children never liked sardines.) They're so tender and delicate and flavorful. I'll eat them straight out of the can with just a little sea salt sprinkled over the top. That's it. Mmmm good. No crackers or anything else needed. I get them from Wally's (Indiana as well as Alabama) for around $2+ per can and purchase 2-4 at a time so I'll have them around whenever I get the urge for "something but don't know what." Some people posted they taste like cat food (?). I have no idea whether that's true or not. I just know they agree with _my_ taste buds so there's no need to throw away any unopened cans -- consider donating them to any church's or city's food give-away program where someone else might consider them a delicacy and a blessing.
