Bought a subscription as a gift for my husband. He loves tinned fish. (Me? Not so much. To each their own!)
Shipping was very prompt and I really appreciated the box insert with information on the different tins included.
Not pictured: little condiments that came to compliment the fish.
I bought this subscription for my grandmother and she enjoys it.
I signed up for the Tinned Fish Club for myself but little did I know that it would also hook my young sons (age 4, 6 and 8) and even my baby daughter.
We've had a great time trying all sorts of canned seafood we'd never otherwise experience. The preparation suggestions and condiments included in each box add to the fun.
The boys are now huge fans of Russian sprats, basically in any preparation. Other favorites include:
* The Latvian salmon. Amazing.
* Sardines in any kind of oil, but especially the spicier ones, like the Porthos.
* All of the pates and spreads have been excellent.
Cod liver was a bit challenging but better than I expected, and my daughter absolutely loved it.
This is a very creative business, and I look forward to each month's box!
The tinned fish club is a true delight. It was a gift from a friend (6 month subscription) but I intend to keep it going on my own dime after it ends. The customer service is top notch, too! I asked to change a shipping date to accommodate my travel schedule, and it was done with no problem and a friendly response from a real human.
My wife gave me a subscription to this club and it has been great! If you're a fan of tinned fish (you know who you are), this club is for you. Every month you receive three different tinned fish along with accompanying ingredients and notes with serving suggestions. The selections are nicely curated and varied (Moroccan sardines, sprats pate, saury). The founders of the club are very responsive and immediately fixed a slight problem I had.
Definitely recommend. Thanks!
Excellent fish options with unique accoutrements (sambal oelek, yuzu, etc.) that enable great combinations. Excited to try other types of fishes in future boxes. Provided recipe sheet was very useful! Thanks!
Thanks so much for your review Arjune! We're happy you liked your subscription and look forward to continuing to provide you with unique tins each month!
A quirky unique gift for any fish enthusiast!
Thank you so much Joanna! We really hope you enjoy your next shipment which set sail today!
I love seafood. So far so good with the first box, and can't wait for the second box! I think my biggest issue will be tracking down a way to get more of my favorites when I get something I like in the package lol.
Thanks Justin! We're thrilled you enjoyed your first box. We have a couple special tins and recipe ideas coming your way this week. Let us know what you think!
My husband loves this box! It's not just tasty fish, but all of the ingredients for the recipes are included. And the mini Tabasco bottle is being made into a Christmas ornament!
Hi Kiersten- thank you so much for your thoughtful review. We're happy you and your husband like what we've put together. We've got an awesome box coming out next month for our subscribers. Stay tuned!
Absolutely loved my first box! It included tins I have not had the chance of trying before and I love the included condiments and suggestions. I am already looking forward to my next box.
Thank you Cecilia! We're thrilled you enjoyed your first box! We have another great box in the works for next month! Thanks for your support of our small business. It really means a lot.
This was a great selection for me. I had the seasoned and baked mackerel with some of the provided crackers and some chedder of my own. I preferred it with the also provided chili garlic sauce. It was a tasty contrast to the surprisingly sweet mackerel.
The garlicky octopus was a first for me and it was fantastic. I put it on a plate and added a few drops of the Tabasco (provided) and some lime. I had some rice noodle ramen along with it and it made a great combo.
I haven't had the Canadian smoked sardines yet but I do love sardines and am going to try several of the recipes using the condiments sent with the ample tin.
Looking forward to the next one. Thank you!
Andy- thank you so much for your thoughtful review. It really made our week! We've got a couple special tins and new recipes coming up!
My father is notoriously hard to buy for. I got him this for his birthday and he is thrilled!!!! He has always loved tinned fish and could not stop raving about his first box. He loved the added condiments and recipes. It is a great way to stretch his birthday to 6 months of fun gifts! So happy I found this!!
I was having a hard time coming up with a special gift for my 92 year old Dad - then I heard about Tinned Fish Club. He just received his first box, and was thrilled! What a creative and fun way to remind him each month that I'm thinking of him.
I know he's tried 2 of the tinned fish so far and have added and some of the included condiments. He said that he will follow one of the recipes this week and let me know how it goes!
I also appreciate the great customer service!
