I actually received samples from our friends at StarKist and I love the Carribean Tuna Salad! I made it for lunch and just loved it! I am also quite impressed with the options of single pouch Tuna packages offered by StarKist. These are called Tuna Creations! They come in flavors such as Thai Chili Style, Jalapeno, Hot Buffalo Style, and Lemon Dill. I haven’t tried them all yet but I really like the Hot Buffalo style in a wrap! Simply delicious!
