The Trouble With Tuna: ‘A Lot of
Millennials Don’t Even Own Can Openers’

Wall Street Journal, by Jesse Newman and Annie Gasparro

Canned tuna, a lunchbox staple from the 20th century, is fighting to keep its spot in American cupboards. Century-old tuna companies like StarKist Co., Bumble Bee Foods LLC and Chicken of the Sea International are trying to reboot demand for tuna fish—selling it in cans, pouches and kits with trendy flavors or as a healthy snack—as they seek to hold on to their dominance in a shrinking market.(Snip for graphic)The traditional tuna makers are facing problems that have plagued other providers of packaged foods, such as soup. Canned tuna is struggling to connect with younger generations

It IS scary to see how incredibly stupid the millenials truly are. Maybe if they make a digital can opener they would get one.

Nancy Pelosi is, I believe, a stockholder in Star-Kist, headquartered in San Francisco and based in American Samoa. Didn´t they get an exception from the minimum wage law?

"Canned tuna has never been hot," says Timothy Mathew, who things that quinoa and kale are more venerable foodstuffs.

Maybe he´s right, but when I´m in Atkins mode shedding pounds--Atkins does work--I eat a lot of solid white albacore tuna in Nellie and Joe´s Key West Lime Juice, topped by a tablespoon or so of habanero type hot sauce. If you lay off the alcohol, the sugar, and the starch, and get your body into ketosis, which takes four days of less than twenty grams of carbs per day, your body starts consuming its own fat for as long as you keep the carbs below twenty grams a day.

Using various types of manual can openers is second nature to Baby Boomers and their parents. Can opening tools abounded, from Boy Scout knife or Swiss Army knife or U.S. military field gear attachments or various rotary clamp devices.

(I never went electric, and still like latching onto a full tin can until it hisses, then turning the key all the way around until the lid separates. When done right the process is pleasing. When done wrong and the toothed turning wheel rolls off the rim of the can, one may curse under one´s breath before getting better purchase with the clamp. Clamp on, dammit.)

If you are on a budget the less-expensive cans of tuna are a bargain. You get lots of protein for 99 ¢. But - there´s a good chance every cat in the neighborhood will be sniffing your breath all day long.

Further evidence that millennials DON´T KNOW ANYTHING, as if we need it. (Their poster child is of course that Rican chica who got elected to the House of Representatives.)

I make a tuna, out of the can, and garbanzo salad for a really satisfying lunch. Nutritious, too, with the other veggies in it.

I eat tuna regularly. My small cans have pull tabs, no ´complex, confusing´ can opener required.
Perhaps there is a Youtube video they could watch on opening a can. (snicker)

How can people be so stupid and dysfunctional about extremely simple things?

They´s do really well after the EMP. Even if they manage to find a whole store full of canned food, they will starve?

My 19-year-old great niece was over for Thanksgiving and helping in the kitchen. I asked her to open a can for my, and she had to admit she had no idea how.

We had a lesson on how to use an electric can opener. I was tempted to break out the hand-crank opener, but spared her.

Sheesh! She´s a brilliant kid, already making great money at her job, but can´t even open a can that doesn´t have a flip top.

Incredible.

The smaller cans of Chicken of the Sea (not my favorite albacore) now have the lids that pull up with a built-in ring.

We buy our best albacore at Costco - larger cans, great quality and price, but a can opener is required.

Always used an OXO until I figured out how to use the Swiss one our son gave me. It is a gem. Cuts differently so no sharp edges. Never needs cleaning. Elegant little tool. Kuhn Rikon.

Here is the one we have. Walmart also has a similar opener for $14.99.

The new cans of tuna have pull tabs, so unless the millennial is lacking in arm strength, it´s a no-brainer to open a can. But it wasn´t that long ago that tuna came in 6 oz. cans for 99¢. Now it´s anywhere from 99¢ on sale to $1.39 for a 4 oz. can Where will it stop? I add chopped celery and onion to my tuna along with pickle relish and mayo.

When we first married and were exiled to California, I hardly knew how to cook anything and our money was TIGHT. But I was a whiz at different tuna recipes and tuna was five cans for a dollar back then. We still like various tuna salads even though the budget isn´t a factor now. Tuna casseroles, not so much.

Possibly because most canned tuna lacks flavor and needs to be doped up with mayo,hot sauce etc.?

After some years of avoiding tuna except as prepared, I went back to the Italian tuna of my boomer youth and rediscovered how real tuna should taste. Packed in olive oil, even albacore tastes pretty darn good all by itself or with some onion and mayo. If you truly want to go traditional, solid light is the way to go but that is a bit on the fishy side.

Yes, Genova and the other Italian pack brands are a little more but you can catch them on sale. Canned in USA and with a ring open top too.

I also think that millenials and after are much too accustomed to eating out versus what their budget might be able to afford or to save money (tuna and Campbell´s chicken noodle soup, and simple meals eaten in). And then wonder why their credit card balances are high and their checking account is low.

#17 hits an important point. "Possibly because most canned tuna lacks flavor and needs to be doped up with mayo,hot sauce etc.?"

I don´t eat anything less than solid white albacore at my house--no chunk light, please--but that´s not where tuna ends. Oh, no.

Yellowfin tuna sashimi (sliced raw fish) is among the most savory meats on earth while bluefin tuna sashimi--I prefer the raw fish to having it in, say, a California roll (sushi)--remains the crème de la crème, in addition to being over the moon expensive. Demand for bluefin tuna will always exceed supply, and the species is getting rarer by the year. But it is a delicacy to reverently savored when available.

#2. To this day there is a P38 on my keychain...
#7. There IS a video out there of a guy using screwdriver/knife to open the can...at the end they dump out the beans and it was a pull top.

My turn. I don´t have all the fancy toys and tools some of our wealthier L dotters have but I have three kinds of can openers.. the P38 I alluded to and it HAS come in very handy recently, I have the nice one that doesn´t leave sharp edges...but there is a flaw.
I don´t know about you guys, but tuna water isn´t what I want on my sandwich. The safety opener cuts the top in a way that you cannot use the lid as a ´strainer´. Well, I am darn sure not going to mess up a bowl or sieve just for tuna! So I still have entry #3, the old metal turnkey opener.
I don´t buy pouches of tuna, I can´t trust them. I did notice cans got a lot smaller recently. Maybe that is why they aren´t selling as well, they aren´t in tune with the market.
Last, and I am sorry for dragging on, Is it just me or does canned chicken taste the same as tuna?

It is frightening to see the device ruthlessly cut through a can top.

Some openers are manual; like, you know, is this the 18th Century?

Left-handed people find them awkward to use.

The cooking programs on PBS never show us how to use them.

So, one commentor puts opening a can of food with rubbing two sticks together to start a fire, or spearing a rabbit? Ridiculous, as usual.

I was in the grocery store this morning, and there are tens of thousands of CANS in there, and 90% of them require a CAN OPENER, an extremely simple, very inexpensive, yet vital tool for "finding food", even in a modern 21st century grocery store.

Don´t mess with my tuna...best quick protein fix there is!
I migrated from cans to fuller pouches...now easier to drain by dumping contents into a strainer. Prefer in oil vs. water for more flavor...lunchtime staple!

Agree with #17: after having had the Italian tuna packed in olive oil (has to be olive oil), regular canned tuna is unpalatble. And it repeats on me for hours. ugh

I found a packet of line-caught albacore which was delicious, but haven´t been able to find again, nor, unfortunately, do i remember the brand. I tried another and nearly tossed it up --excuse the graphic.

Enjoying #2(etc) recipe suggestions.

We tried an electric opener for a while. But one day the grip on the mechanism had weakened, and the can fell to the countertop. We found a good handcrank one made in the USA 20+ years ago and it is still a great kitchen tool.

My nieces and nephews have initiative, they´re problem-solvers and have had to learn to make things work. AWESOME young adults! I´m so thankful for them all.

Oxo makes a good manual can opener but I am pushing 80 with badly arthritic hands and wrists so we went to the electric. It´s a Hamilton Beach,inexpensive but works well.

Canned tuna has never been as good since the ´Big 3´ started packing in water instead of olive oil. I drain and rinse it thoroughly then dry it and add some olive oil. Much better flavor after it sits in the oil for 30 minutes. You can get some nice imported tuna in olive oil. Delicious but pricey.

I love canned tuna and will try it with several of the recipes in this thread. However, I never thought of giving the juice to my cat. Hmmm. I bet she´d LOVE it, the big, fluffy mooch!!

We have always had both a manual and an electric can opener. I am left handed so I have always preferred the electric to save my knuckles. But to not even KNOW how to open a simple can??? Do none of them have pets?? Have they never eaten a can of baked beans? I think of all of the things in the grocery store in cans and all I can do is shake my head!!!

There´s something about a can that is unwieldy, at least in public. You can´t carry it around like you can a brown paper bag, and it would look rather odd to be seen sitting in a cafeteria with a can opener in one hand and a can in the other. It´s almost taboo.

I used to eat quite a lot of tuna but it is one of the foods that don´t sit well with me anymore. I will fix it once in a while but like another poster have to add tons of chopped celery, a little onion, mayo and sweet pickle relish.

There are some things that seem to be nicer in pouches, but I can´t imagine tuna in anything but a can (or fresh).

#11, my wife was out of town for a month, and I was cooking, ran into another (new to me) can opener in the drawer. Intrigued, I pulled it out and examined it.....weird, not like any ordinary can opener.

So I tried it. Took a bit of experimentation without any instructions, but I figured it out. It cut the lid off on the side. Strange, but as you stated, no sharp edge. Used it once, said - "Hmm, interesting." Kinda fussy, and I have never cut myself on a can lid in over 6 decades of opening cans, including a couple of times with a knife, in an emergency. I often pop out my Swiss Army knife to open a can, less convenient than a knob twister type, but works fine.

Haven´t fooled with the side cutter since, can´t really see the point.

Former San Antonio mayor and Obama administration cabinet member Julián Castro is launching a presidential exploratory committee ahead of a scheduled January 12 announcement about his future political plans. “Some people might say that it’s early, but I believe you have to be decisive,” he told the Associated Press in an interview Wednesday, adding that he will spend the next month traveling and listening to people—and likely trying to generate commitments of support from key Democrats. “I know where I’m leaning for sure.” An adviser said the 44-year-old Castro has all but decided to throw his hat

The aim of the victims’ rights movement, which arose in the 1970s and has swept through every state in the union and changed federal laws in the years since, is often summed up simply: Crime victims have the right to be “informed, present and heard.” All these rights were trampled by Alexander Acosta, formerly the U.S. attorney in South Florida and currently U.S. secretary of labor, when he struck a secret deal with wealthy sex offender Jeffrey Epstein to shield Epstein from federal investigation and prosecution.Though Acosta was in possession of a 53-page draft indictment charging that the well-connected financier

Ten years ago, Bernard Madoff’s multibillion-dollar Ponzi scheme, the biggest fraud in U.S. history, shocked the financial world. It soon emerged that a forensic accountant, Harry Markopolos, had been alerting regulators for years to Mr. Madoff’s fraud, but no one had listened. At Mr. Markopolos’s urging, the Securities and Exchange Commission created a cash-for-tips program, designed to encourage reports of financial wrongdoing and prevent the lapses in oversight that gave Mr. Madoff free rein. Today, an entire industry is devoted to surfacing tips from company insiders and expert analysts who scrutinize corporate filings.

Robert Mueller looks to be approaching his endgame, and the press is alive with speculation as to how bad the special counsel’s report will be for President Trump. It’s also worth noticing how good Mr. Mueller has been to another president, Barack Obama, and his team. This benevolence was on display in the sentencing document the special counsel’s office filed on Tuesday for Mike Flynn. The former Trump national security adviser, we are told, has provided “substantial assistance,” sitting for 19 interviews that aided in “several ongoing investigations.” In light of this help, the Mueller team

Secretary of Defense James Mattis responded to criticisms after he and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gave an intelligence brief to Senators on the murder of Saudi Jamal Khashoggi. Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) have called out the pair. “I think the Secretary of Defense and Secretary of State are in a bad spot because the president has given this bear hug to MBS and to the entire Saudi regime, so they are bound to carry out his bizarre policy,” Murphy said during a “Morning Joe” interview.

The Global Carbon Tax Revolt
Wall Street Journal, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 12/4/2018 8:00:29     Post Reply
France’s violent Yellow Vest protests are now about many domestic concerns, but it’s no accident that the trigger was a fuel-tax hike. Nothing reveals the disconnect between ordinary voters and an aloof political class more than carbon taxation. The fault line runs between anti-carbon policies and economic growth, and France is a test for the political future of emissions restrictions. France already is a relatively low-carbon economy, with per-capita emissions half Germany’s as of 2014. French governments have nonetheless pursued an “ecological transition” to further squeeze carbon emissions from every corner

Attorneys for President Trump asked a court Monday for nearly $800,000 in lawyers’ fees and penalties from adult-film actress Stormy Daniels for the failed defamation lawsuit against him. Attorney Charles Harder defended more than 500 hours his firm spent that rang up a nearly $390,000 legal bill for the president and asked for an equal amount in sanctions as a deterrent against a “repeat filer or frivolous defamation cases.” Harder said the fees and penalties were earned because of the extraordinary nature of the defamation case.

The NeverTrump movement has gone from pushing allegations that Donald Trump treasonously colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 presidential election from its rightful owner Hillary Clinton, to pretending that his attempts at business deals in Russia, which were legal and the subject of widespread reporting during the election, are evidence of unspecified crimes. The main barrier to the Russia-Trump collusion theory — an information operation that was secretly bought and paid for by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee, spread by a compliant media, and weaponized by the highest levels of federal agencies —

George H.W. Bush saved us
from a Dukakis White House

Thank you, President George H.W. Bush, for everything you did, but most of all for your greatest accomplishment: Keeping Michael S. Dukakis out of the White House in 1988. Getting dead, someone once observed, always does a lot for a person’s social standing. So maybe that’s one reason for all the bouquets Poppy was getting yesterday in the media as an “underrated” president, even by some of the Green Room grifters who think the only good Republican is a dead Republican. But 41 does deserve our maximum gratitude for stopping the Massachusetts governor

The Boy Scouts of America is mulling declaring bankruptcy amid flagging membership and an avalanche of costly sex abuse allegations, according to the Wall Street Journal. Leaders have hired Chicago law firm Sidley Austin for help in a potential Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing, sources told the outlet. The organization has been fending off lawsuits over alleged abuse, including one filed by four former scouts who called the club a “pedophile magnet” and alleged that they were molested by scoutmaster Waldron Ackerman between 1974 and 1976. The organization has reportedly lost two-thirds of its members — some 4 million boys —

Woke 29-year-old Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went after White House Chief of Staff John Kelly yesterday. Why? She wants him to apologize to Democrat Rep. Frederica Wilson for supposedly "lying" about her to reporters.(tweet)"Cowardice." Quite a big word to use against a four-star Marine Corps general whose son was killed in Afghanistan. Wilson´s spat with Kelly came last year when she alleged President Trump disrespected a military family during a phone call. Kelly disputed her characterization and gave a briefing to the White House press corps on how the military handles casualties.

If Tuesday’s instantly famous Oval Office meeting is a harbinger of things to come, it’s going to be a long two years for “Chuck and Nancy.” Presidents can be intimidating, and Trump had home court advantage during Tuesday’s meeting. However, Chuck Schumer seemed especially outmatched by a very forceful Donald Trump. As Bill Kristol (no Trump apologist) put it: “[B]ased on what I saw of their respective performances in that Oval Office meeting today, I don’t understand why it’s Nancy Pelosi who’s facing a leadership challenge and Chuck Schumer who isn’t.” The mainstream media will focus

Two groups of migrants from Central America marched to the American consulate in Tijuana, Mexico, yesterday, with a list of demands to the Trump administration. One of them asked the American president to either let them in the country or pay them $50,000 each to go home, a report said. The first group, including about 100 migrants, arrived at the consulate around 11am on Tuesday. Alfonso Guerreo Ulloa, an organizer from Honduras, told the San Diego Union-Tribune that the $50,000 figure is not a very big sum. ´It may seem like a lot of money to you,´ he said.

When Professor Christine Blasey-Ford testified against the Supreme Court nomination of then-Judge Bret Kavanaugh, my very first impression was that her voice sounded fake. She sounded like a scared little girl, her voice tremulous, creating an impression of sadness and vulnerability. (snip) For the first time since her testimony, we now have the opportunity to hear her voice, and guess what? She doesn’t sound at all like the witness whose fear and suffering moved so many Democrats and feminists. She sounds like a grown-up, a professor indeed.

New York Times opinion writer Jennifer Weiner told CBS This Morning hosts that holiday office parties are nothing more than another opportunity for women to be sexually harassed. In her article titled “The Torture of Dressing for Your Office Holiday Party,” Weiner described the holiday season as “the least wonderful time of the year.” “Why are we having holiday parties at all?” complained Weiner to Gayle King on Monday morning. “Wouldn’t you rather have an extra $100 in your paycheck than have to put on the Spanx, put on the heels, be social with the guy with, like, the stale coffee breath

MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski had to apologize for what some perceived to be a homophobic joke on Morning Joe Wednesday. Brzezinski called Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was “wannabe dictator’s butt-boy.” “I understand that Donald Trump doesn’t care, Heilemann makes a good point, he doesn’t care. But why doesn’t Mike Pompeo care right now?” Mika Brzezinski said of Pompeo’s response to a question about the killing of Saudi dissident Jamal Khashoggi. She continued, “Are the pathetic deflections that we just heard when he appeared on Fox & Friends, is that a patriot speaking? Or a wannabe dictator’s butt-boy?” Mika’s joke

EXCLUSIVE – President Trump has canceled the White House holiday party for the media, making the decades-old tradition a victim of his increasingly contentious relationship with major news organizations. The annual Christmas-season gathering was a significant perk for those covering the White House, as well as other Washington reporters, anchors and commentators, and New York media executives would regularly fly in for the occasion. At its peak, the invitation-only soirees grew so large that there were two back-to-back events, one for broadcast outlets and one for print organizations.
