As someone who travels a good bit, I find myself eating things as a matter of last resort more often than I might like.  Rolling in to a hotel at 1 am and finding everything, but a vending machine, closed is a reality I know all too well. As a result I actually look for packages like this as an alternative to ceral bars and things along those lines.


If I wasn’t certain that it would get confiscated by the TSA I would keep one of the foil packets of tuna in my briefcase, just in case. Lets see if this might be a good alternative.

After opening the packaging, I get a tin of chicken, a foil wrapped packet of crackers and the cutest little spoonula you ever did see.


It didn’t have much of a buffalo wing smell to it, which didn’t give me a great feeling. The smell was mostly canned meat smell. Which is to say, kind of like wet pet food. I scooped up a hunk and was pleasantly surprised to see recognizable bits of chicken and celery. I fully expected everything to be pureed into an easily digestible paste.


I popped the whole thing into my mouth and was quite surprised. The cracker was good which helped a lot. Crispy and buttery with a rich flavor. The chicken itself had a hint of sweetness that I didn’t care for, but after that it was quite tasty. The celery was prominent and the there was a bit of a kick at the end. I would have liked more heat and less sweet but it was still not bad. I went in for another scoop with more chicken on it, to get the full effect.



Much the same impression, good, not great, but certainly something I would eat again. Given the choice between this and a granola bar, I would eat this for sure. I don’t think I will keep it in the pantry at home but Bumble Bee buffalo chicken salad gets a qualified “Try It.” No reason to seek it out but if you are stuck don’t be afraid to eat it.

    Have you ever tried their Spicy Thai Chili tuna medley? I’ve never been a huge fan of any canned meat, but I like this one.

    It’s OK. Not awful, but just OK. I can taste sweet pickle relish in it, and obviously some of what I thought were pieces of celery are actually sweet pickles. “Buffalo style” anything and “sweet pickles” don’t belong on the same table, much less the same dish. Yuck.
