I know what many of you are thinking...
What they hey?
Until you learn how much I love tuna fish.
Tuna is to me what pizza is to you the morning after a late night
In college the morning after a late night party all of my friends would get greasy comfort food like pizza or burger. Me? I always got a tuna melt.
It's comforting. It's inexpensive. It's filling. It's actually quite good for you too!
I still love tuna and eat it at least once a week. I specifically like Bumble Bee so I was thrilled when they asked if I'd join the 2011 Bee Squad in exchange for paying my way to BlogHer '11!
"You want me to work with my favorite tuna company and eat a bunch of Bumble Bee products and write about it? Um, how do I say this... HELL YES!"
And so it begins.
Exploring the Bumble Bee product line
I recently received a welcome kit in the mail complete with all kinds of Bumble Bee product as well as an apron which makes me feel like a real cook!
The Mister quickly ate the seasoned cans of tuna called Bumble Bee Sensations (Lemon & Pepper, Spicy Thai Chili and Sundried Tomato and Basil) before I had a chance to write about them properly or even write up a fancy recipe.
Here is the one close-up shot of the cans I got before they disappeared into his stomach:
BUT, I can at least tell you what he said,
"Am I in trouble again?
Oh. OK. Sorry.
Next time I'll take a picture before I eat them.
Um, they were good! Didn't even need mayo. Get more of them."
And that last part, "Get more of them" is what is key here folks.
That means he really like them. And I like the no mayo because both of us need to be watching our calorie intake.
In the next few months I'll be highlighting various family-friendly Bumble Bee recipes like the tuna pizza I made (seriously good), the Bee Well for Life program (which donates $.10 a mile to breast cancer research), and the way Bumble Bee practices what they preach with encouraging their employees and business to be healthy and green.
Now I'm starving and off to make myself a tuna melt!
Disclosure: As a member of the Bee Squad Bumble Bee is my official sponsor to attend the BlogHer 11 conference. I have received a box of product for my family to use as we explore the Bumble Bee line of products and document the experience here. I may at some point offer a giveaway and that product will be supplied at not cost to me. All opinons expressed here are my own and you are welcome to contact my college roommate to verify I did, infact, eat tuna melts regularly and you can leave a comment here for The Mister to verify just how many cans of Bumble Bee tuna I have purchased and are currently stored in my basement before I ever became a Bee Squad member. Actually - someone please do that. Make him work a little for the tuna, right? Kidding. This disclosure is getting too long already and was obviously not approved or reviewed proior to being published.
