Thanks for this suggestion. I've been eating them 2-3x/week. I might just up my intake. The varieties with skin & bones don't bother me at all -- they have up to 4x the calcium of the skinless, boneless varieties. Some of the flavored supermarket brands are not all that tasty tho' -- it seems that the quality of the sardines themselves in those supermarket brands is not that high (at least taste-wise). I don't recall if was the flavored Chicken of the Sea or Bumble Bee sardines that I did not care for.
Some sardine brands that I really enjoy are: BELA-Olhão, Trader Joes, and Crown Prince. Disappointed that TJs no longer carries BELA-Olhão but their own Light Smoked Sardines in Olive Oil and their Skinless & Boneless Sardines in Olive Oil are both quite good.
Mellow Yellow. That is funny. Like to see you playin a singles match on those conditions, Mellow Yellow.lol
