The Bottom Line:

I have always liked tuna. Until recently I have always purchased tuna in a can. I liked the tuna in the pouches but they were more expensive then cans. Recently my store had the pouches on sale and there was a coupon to go along with it which made the pouches just a few cents. So I purchased a bunch of the Starkist Chunk Light Tuna in Water Pouches.

The Starkist Chunk Light Tuna in Water Pouches come in two different size pouches. They come in a 2.6 ounce and a 6.6 ounce pouch. I have only purchased the 2.6 ounce pouch. The pouches are silver and tear open easily. You don’t have to worry about having a can opener to open these. For me, 2.6 ounces is the perfect size for lunch. Now when I make a tuna casserole I use four pouches. The pouches are easy to take with me in my lunch bag. The pouches are a bit harder to store in my cupboards because they don’t stack easily. I normally take the box they come in in the store and store them in that in my cupboards. It makes it a lot easier.
I think the Starkist Chunk Light Tuna in Water Pouches has less water in them then can tuna. I still try to drain them when I open them, more out of habit then anything. When you are ready to use the pouch of tuna you tear it open, dump out the tuna and enjoy. I just throw the pouch away in the trash. I like to eat tuna plain and I eat it with mayonnaise on crackers or bread. I also enjoy tuna in tuna casserole too. Tuna is a healthy meal that my whole family enjoys so I like to keep a few pouches on hand at all times.
Starkist Chunk Light Tuna in Water Pouches is a natural source of omega 3. The pouches come with oil or in water but I have always purchased tuna in water.
The ingredients in Starkist Chunk Light Tuna in Water Pouches are light tuna, water, vegetable broth and salt.
A serving of Starkist Chunk Light Tuna in Water Pouches is .25 cup. There are 60 calories in a serving with 5 calories from fat. A serving contains 0.5 g of total fat, 25 mg of cholesterol, 230 mg of sodium, 170 mg of potassium, and 13 g of protein. I have taken the ingredients and nutritional information from the pouch. This information is subject to change so please read the pouch before purchasing.
I like tuna for lunch because it is easy to prepare. I have eaten it right out the pouch and I have mixed it with mayonnaise and made a sandwich. Either way it is good, quick and easy to make. The pouches are convenient to keep in my desk drawer for when I forget my lunch or don’t have time to go to lunch. I also like that I don’t have to keep a can opener at my desk as these pouches rip right open.
Starkist Chunk Light Tuna in Water Pouches can be found in most grocery stores in the aisle with other canned tuna. Regular price for the tuna pouches are $1.29 at my stores. They often go on sale for a dollar and recently there were coupons that made then just a few cents a pouch. I like to stock up on items when I get them really cheap so I purchased about 50 pouches. I eat about two pouches a week if I just use them for lunch but hubby and the kids also eat them and I do make tuna occasionally for dinner. We go through five to ten pouches a week.
There are other brands of tuna in pouches but I have never tried them. They also make different flavored tuna which I have never tried either.
If you are looking for a good healthy lunch or dinner idea, we would recommend Starkist Chunk Light Tuna in Water Pouches. They are quick and easy to make and taste good.
