    Rainforest Coast sardines seem like a different kind of fish than the regular little tiny "brisling" sardines. They are packed in water. You get 3 of them in the can. They taste pretty much like any other canned fish like salmon or tuna. You might find them a good gateway sardine.

    For a sardine virgin I highly recommend starting with cans that are skinless & boneless. Otherwise it will probably gross you out. I had to eat the skinless & boneless variety for a long time before I could work up to the “whole” sardines. I like sardines, but I don’t know if I will ever love them.

    "Rainforest coast sardines"? I did not know that the rainforest had any coastline close to it, so that company must be cheating already by using such a label!

    The United States has a real rainforest ecosystem, and that is located in the Pacific Northwest, aka the states of Oregon and Washington, which are definitely on a coastline. It is a temperate rainforest - I am willing to bet you know only of the jungle kind. I do not know as of this post if the ecosystem extends a wee bit northwards into Canada.

    I am a hardcore sardine eater, bones, skin and all, but I do have a tip - please try lots of different brands. Even I have noticed a huuuuuge taste and quality difference between them. My favorite is "Wild Planet" brand - I get them in our local health food store. Expensive, but the fishies are in evoo, and plump and delicious.

    Hey, that's interesting, I thought that they meant the rainforest of Amazonas, since I am living in the coastline of Ecuador, so now I learned something new!

    Like crabbcakes said, the taste can vary by brand even if you grab the same flavors. I only like sardines in olive oil. Nevertheless, I've bought sardines in olive oil from one brand and liked them and the same but another brand and hated it. Unfortunately, I forget to write down which brands are good/bad.

    Cento skinless and boneless sardines packed in olive oil are fantastic.
    I subscribe the them by the case on Amazon. They are from Morocco.
    Many fish per can, mild, great with almost any hot sauce straight up.
