Canned sardines and more

    Grandad loved sardines, probably from eating them so often when he served in the Army-Air Force in World War II. I started eating them when I was  kid. Grandad, Edmund E. Jacobs, of Wooster, Ohio, retired after years in the reserves as a Lt. Col. He also served for a while on the Wooster City Council.

    Anyway, I am trying to save money and watch what I am eating, but with my schedule, canned foods help out. I've bough sardines, canned salmon, beans, soups and chili. I'll review them as I eat. I'm also on a tea kick, more on that later.

     Why is it that it's hard to find sardines from Canada? I know the last U.S. processing plant closed a year or so ago. I used to buy Beach Cliff, which was made in the U.S.A. I also like King Oscar, but they are more expensive. Poland now seems to make most Beach Cliff products. I've heard it's a new plant, and I feel better buying sardines from Poland, Norway, Canada, the U.S. than Morocco (least offensive) or God forbid, China, Thailand, etc.
