Starkist Tuna Creations (Ranch) Review


***Disclaimer:  I was sent a free sample pouch of Starkist Tuna Creations in Ranch flavor in order to facilitate this review.  Opinions expressed in this post are 100% my own.

As part of the CrowdTap community, I am facilitated with many product samples to test and review.

I was recently sent a pouch of StarKist Tuna Creations in Ranch flavor, at first I was hesitant to try it at all. Why? Well, tuna with ranch just didn't sound appealing.

I'm so glad that these types of communities exist and that they didn't allow me a flavor to choose from because otherwise I probably would have stuck with what I know, and well that's really pointless.  It's because of them that I stepped outside the box, and gave it a try.

It sure did not disappoint! The ranch flavor was so subtle that it didn't overpower or feel like a "dip".  I highly recommend it for those people who want and like tuna for lunch but need that little extra "kick" of flavor! The tuna comes in a compact and perfect serving size, it's flaky and it's not watery or oily.  I actually enjoy the tuna in the pouch as opposed to the can.  I recommend it to people who enjoy a tasty tuna salad, casserole or sandwich, and I encourage anyone who might be hesitant to try it out as well! 

I created a salad that incorporated my tuna sample -
