    Don't have proof of this except my own experience having eaten a lot of tuna, but I believe the more expensive Aldi brand in the yellow tin is the same. The Sirena Olive Oil flavour has a distinct taste and the Aldi one tastes identical.

      I can't remember if I ended up checking the tin for the sodium content but I felt that the expensive Aldi brand was saltier than the Sirena one. This is for the chilli tuna.

      I've had a friend say the same! Wouldn't be surprised if they're using same suppliers - but I'm not close to an Aldi so this is a good deal for not having to make a special trip.

            @jv: you're comparing different products…..

            Sole Mare Tuna in Oil 425g vs Sirena Tuna In Oil Italian Style 425g both contain sunflower oil but Sirena also contains olive oil

            •  

              @star-ggg: I only buy the 100% olive oil one.

              Does Sirena do one of those?

              •  

                @jv: So post a deal for the sole mare olive oil one.

      learn to read

      p.s. but the 185g are also on sale, 1$ off, so not at the moment it doesn't.

        185g aren't on sale for me in NSW!

        •  

          Ah, then it could be a QLD/my store thing.
          Your deal still comes out on top though

          Edit: Oops. I was looking at Coles, and not Woolies.

        These aren't 185g though, so it's not a valid comparison.

          As long as the product is the same, the $ per volume or weight is the most effective bargain heuristic. It's a valid comparison.

            @NatoTomato:

            As long as the product is the same

            It's not, it's a different size.

            Otherwise might as well compare doing a bulk order from the manufacturer for 10,000 cans… Pretty sure that will be cheaper per kg….

              @jv: Ok. If you want 10,000 cans.
              For me, OP saves me nearly 50% buying one big can rather than 2 smaller cans.
              For me, that's a deal.

                Ok. If you want 10,000 cans.

                Same with 425g vs 185g.

                It's not a valid comparison.

                These are normally $7, and often $5.50. That is a 21% saving off the normal price.

                To say it is half price is misleading…

    I have been eating Sirena tuna all my life. For me it is the best but I reckon Woolworths Yellowfin tuna is very close to a taste and much cheaper. I only buy the Woolworths brand now unless Sirena is on special

    delicious recipe : boil some pasta, add bottle of basil pesto, sirena tuna and thickened cream. Always a hit.

      Sounds tasty, will give it a go - thank you for sharing!

    How does this compare with the Korean branded canned tuna?

  • +3 votes

    Re: 425g vs 185g
    Since people are trying to compare…

    I did weigh the actual tuna after draining the oil from Aldi cans (chunks) multiple times and the result is pretty consistent:
    425g can got around 300g of tuna
    185g can got around 147g of tuna

    The price on the tag (calculated per 100g) is based on full weight (including oil).

    Meanwhile… Coles 425g "homebrand" tuna in white/orange label cans…
    Might be different tuna, I am not an expert.
    But 425g can got 340g of tuna (I had just one can, can't say if is consistent).

      425g can got around 300g of tuna
      185g can got around 147g of tuna

      So the 425g one is 70% tuna

      and the 185g one is 80% tuna
