These Are The Canned Goods You Probably Didn’t Know Existed
Have you spotted these in the supermarket?
During our grocery runs, we go to the canned good section and automatically scan the aisles for items we've already tried and liked. Our eyes instantly recognize the packaging of our go-to brands for corned beef, luncheon meat, tuna, Vienna sausage, and more. But in the process, any grocery shopper can miss the opportunity to discover unusual yet interesting canned goods worth trying.
If you're feeling a little adventurous, here are some new canned goods you can find in the supermarket:
Elarz Corned Lechon
Are you a big fan of lechon? It's now easier to have your lechon fix with Elarz Corned Lechon, a lechon that's pulled into strands like corned beef. This comes in Original, Lagablab (spicy), Zebu, and Zupremo (Elzar's special blend of herbs and spices).
Elarz Corned Lechon costs P170 per can.
Elarz Lecheon Meat
Another canned lechon product by Elarz is the Lecheon Meat, a canned good that combines lechon and luncheon meat in one. This canned good comes in three flavors: Original, Lagablab(spicy), and Paksiw na Lechon.
Elarz Lecheon Meat costs P85 per can.
Delimondo Caldereta Corned Beef
We all know of Delimondo's Garlic and Chili Corned Beef and Ranch-Style Corned Beef, but did you know they also have Caldereta Corned Beef? This is made with tender beef, chunks of tomatoes, red and green bell peppers, in a mildly spicy tomato sauce.
Delimondo's Caldereta Corned Beef costs P168 per can.
Ligo Sardines Gata-Style
Although Ligo Sardines in gata (coconut milk) isn't a new item, it's definitely one of the more unique takes on canned sardines. This Ligo sardines come with a rich, slightly spicy coconut milk made from soya oil.
Ligo Sardines Gata-Style costs P32 per can.
Gold Seas Tuna Chunks in Mild Indian Curry
Another unique canned tuna flavor comes from Gold Seas Tuna Chunks in Mild Indian Curry. This canned good has chunky pieces of tuna with a mildly spicy, herby taste to it. This is a flavorful tuna you can pair with plain white rice or use it to make a tuna sandwich filling.
Gold Seas Tuna Chunks in Mild Indian Curry costs P63 per 423 gram-can.
Century Tuna Paella and San Marino Tuna Paella
Canned tuna paellas are a useful purchase for extremely busy days when you don't have time to cook. Century Tuna and San Marino's versions of canned tuna paella both have rice, tuna, and veggie bits mixed with a flavorful sauce. It's rice + ulam in one can!
