The Best of the Tuna Helpers

All the Tuna Helpers are excellent, but the Tetrazzini is the best in my view. Oddly, the one package I used of my shipment from Amazon did not have the extraordinary flavor of the one I purchased in our local store. Since my original purchase, my local store does not carry the Tetrazzini Tuna Helper. I am willing to accept that the one package I purchased from Amazon was not a true sample of the excellent Tetrazzini put out under the Tuna Helper label. Since the product is, I assume, made the same way each time, I expect the balance of the boxes I purchased to exhibit the same flavor as the first box I purchased from my local store.

Not discontinued!

Despite the many comments online that Tuna Tetrazzini is gone the truth is it’s not discontinued, it’s simply harder to find. Go to your bigger chain grocers (my Ralph’s always has it in stock and frequently has 10/$10 sales) or Super Wal-Mart. Basically any store that normally has a wide selection of Helper flavors. Your smaller grocery chains, Target, Walgreens, etc will not have it. They only
want to carry the Creamy Pasta and Creamy Broccoli varieties for some reason. Why this is the case makes no sense. When I was growing up tetrazzini was the favorite flavor in our house and you could always find it at the store. Betty Crocker has been making some baffling changes to the Helper line like refusing to put microwave directions on the box (check online if you need them), making flavors harder to find, and reducing the amount of noodles in certain varieties. If you really can’t find Tetrazzini, go with Tuna Melt, the other good TH flavor. The others are just not good.

Short Expiration Date

I really like this Tuna Helper. What I did not like is that the case that I received had experation dates for March 2009! I ordered this shipment the end of December 2008. That’s only 3 months! And I bought a case, so that was 6 boxes! I did not notice this until this month, so now I feel like I need to use them all up very soon! When you buy this product in a grocery store, you usually have at least an entire year before the “best if used by” date! I will not buy a case of anything through Amazon again, unless it is something I don’t have to worry about the expiration date.

Tuna Tetrazzini

This product, in my opinion, is the best of the Tuna Helper flavors. Its flavor is bright, not muddy or overly thick and the noodles hold their texture. I add a little parmesian cheese to it. Can’t find it in any of the stores in Tucson, Arizona.
