I am addicted to these Season Wild Caught Sardines in Olive Oil. This month, I started seeing these sardines at Costco warehouses in my area. Since I am a fan of seafood, I am always looking for a way to increase my intake of healthy protein. So I bought a set of them. It was love at first bite!
These wild and sustainably caught sardines offer 22 grams of protein per serving (which is one flat canned container, more photos below). There is also 15% DV vitamin D and 1700 mg of heart-friendly omega-3 per serving.
More importantly, the sardines taste fresh and delicious. The sardines are small and fun to eat. They are suspended in a small amount of olive oil, which provided moisture and improves the overall taste.

Like I have said, I became such a huge fan of these sardines. In fact, you can see below how much I got last week and I plan to stock up even more. These are perfect for a snack on the go. Whether you are out camping or on a road trip.
For me, it’s a rich source of protein for the office. I don’t have to heat up fish and stink up the whole kitchenette.
