I will not order Crown Prince Natural Skinless & Boneless Pacific Pink Salmon from Amazon again partly because Amazon significantly raised the price recently. On September 11, 2013, I ordered the product from Amazon at the subscription price (after a 15% discount) of $35.43 for 12 6-ounce cans, or $2.95 per can. However, today, Amazon's subscription price (after a 15% discount) is $47.22, or $3.94 per can. This is a price increase of 34%, which is a price increase of $0.99 per can.
After I ordered the product on Sep 11, I consumed about 12 6-ounce cans during a period of about 6 weeks. I found the taste and texture to be OK, and the product is completely free of skin and bone, but the smell right after opening the can is noticeable and distracting compared to Wild Planet Wild Alaskan Pink Salmon, Boneless & Skinless, which I prefer much more than the Crown Prince product. Wild Planet Wild Alaskan Pink Salmon, Boneless & Skinless has noticeably better taste, texture, and smell.
Furthermore, the old-fashioned design of the Crown Prince can saddles the user with a major inconvenience: one must have a can opener to open the Crown Prince product. The Wild Planet product has a modern self-opening lid with a finger-ring on the lid so that one does not need a can-opener tool. An old-fashioned can without a self-opening lid is a big drawback for consumers. The modern self-opening lid is an important convenience for on-the-go consumers who want to eat the product right out of the can, especially when not at home.
Before I first ordered Crown Prince Natural Skinless & Boneless Pacific Pink Salmon on September 11, 2013, I had been consuming Wild Planet Wild Alaskan Pink Salmon, Boneless & Skinless regularly for a period of about 12 months. According to the product labels, the Crown Prince product has a higher Omega 3 content than the Wild Planet product, and the Crown Prince product carries the BPA FREE label on the can. However, I prefer much more the taste, texture, and smell of the Wild Planet product.
(Note: Wild Planet Wild Alaskan Pink Salmon, Boneless & Skinless does not carry the BPA FREE label, but, on its web site, Wild Planet discusses at length the substance BPA and whether its cans have the substance. BPA is a reference to a coating on the interior liner of some cans in the industry. Many governments have outlawed the use of BPA in can liners, but the US government has not outlawed such use of BPA, so, in pursuit of higher profits, some US corporations continue to sell cans that have BPA in the liner.)
Crown Prince Natural Skinless & Boneless Pacific Pink Salmon seafood comes from Pacific waters off the coast of Canada. Wild Planet Wild Alaskan Pink Salmon, Boneless & Skinless seafood comes from Pacific waters off the coast of Alaska. I do not know if the habitat waters makes the difference, but I prefer much more the taste, texture, and smell of Wild Planet Wild Alaskan Pink Salmon, Boneless & Skinless.
Before the time around July 2013, when Amazon discontinued subscription pricing for Wild Planet Wild Alaskan Pink Salmon, Boneless & Skinless, the subscription price (after a 15% discount) was $3.07 per 6-ounce can. Due to unavailability of Wild Planet Wild Alaskan Pink Salmon, Boneless & Skinless by subscription for $3.07 per can, on September 11, I ordered Crown Prince Natural Skinless & Boneless Pacific Pink Salmon because the price was much more affordable than the high prices for Wild Planet Wild Alaskan Pink Salmon, Boneless & Skinless from Amazon's 3rd-party vendors. I am very disappointed with Amazon for cancelling subscription availability of Wild Planet Wild Alaskan Pink Salmon, Boneless & Skinless, which had a relatively affordable subscription price (after a 15% discount) of $3.07 per 6-ounce can compared to the much higher and current prices ($3.80 to $5.92 or more per 6-oz can) of Amazon's 3rd-party vendors for the same product.
I do not intend to reorder Crown Prince Natural Skinless & Boneless Pacific Pink Salmon, and I will not pay the high price of Wild Planet Skinless & Boneless Wild Alaska Pink Salmon from Amazon's 3rd-party vendors. As soon as I find a seller who has an affordable price for wild Alaskan Pink salmon, boneless & skinless, I will order from that seller.
According to a Perdue University scientific study, canned salmon contains significantly less mercury (Hg) than most canned tuna and less mercury (Hg) than most canned mackerel. According to other abundant scientific data, North Pacific Pink salmon has the least amount of mercury (Hg) compared to the other four species of North Pacific salmon.
For all seafood consumers who want to know the scientific data about the actual amounts of mercury (Hg) content and the differences in mercury (Hg) content in salmon, tuna, and mackerel, read the findings of the study at the following non-commercial public-service site: cfse.purdue.edu/news/some-canned-fish-safer-for-women-in-childbearing-years/, and, at the bottom of the web page, download the actual scientific paper that contains the report and analysis by clicking the link: Mercury and Fatty Acids in Canned Tuna, Salmon, and Mackerel
Additionally, the Monterey Bay Aquarium has a EXCELLENT, free, and downloadable seafood guide on its non-commercial, public-service site, which is a superior reference for informed seafood consumers or those who aspire to be informed seafood consumers: montereybayaquarium.org/cr/cr_seafoodwatch/download.aspx
1. Amazon lists this salmon (*with* bones) on the same page with smoked and/or boneless skinless salmon varieties, therefore the reviews for all 3 are combined. While this is slightly confusing I admit, don't people read the product description before ordering? A lot of reviews were surprised at the bones. It states pretty clearly they are in there, in fact it's listed at the very top in the current presentation: "Traditionally packed to include the bones and skin for added calcium".
2. Even people who knew it had bones posted negatively about the vertebrae pieces in the salmon chunks. I'm confused...did they think they would remove the vertebrae but leave the ribs? Personally to make e.g. salmon salad for my daughter I found both the skin and bones easy to remove; for myself I mostly leave them in. The most amusing part of this is at least one reviewer seemed to view the presence of vertebrae as a mark of inferior quality, when in fact the less processed something is, generally the better it is for you. It is akin to saying a piece of fruit is "bad" because it has a blemish or something.
3. A large percentage of the omega-3 in salmon is in or near the skin, because it is oily. Go to Crown Prince's web site and compare the nutritional information between the boneless skinless and not. If you are eating salmon for health reasons, you probably want to chop most of the skin up into your salmon salad (or whatever). Or order their boneless skinless sardines instead, sardines are oily throughout so removing the skin doesn't reduce the omega-3 as dramatically as it does with salmon.
On the other hand, if you really don't want bones and skin....well, order the kind without them, or at least don't blame Crown Prince for your mistake, it's not their fault Amazon lists all 3 types of their salmon on the same page.
If these had pull-open tabs, I'd give it a final star but I bought these for convenience and they're somewhat lacking in that for me.
