Sardines in WHAT?

I was in the local supermarket, and I saw a can of sardines put out by Bar Harbor.  I know they put out a pretty good can of chowder, but I have to wonder about sardines packed in maple syrup!
 Anyone ever have these?

    Ms. OC said I should have purchased a can just to try them.  Perhaps I will......

    I was just kidding. I like maple syrup and I like sardines. I do not want sardines with maple syrup.

    Plus, they're smoked! Another regional dish to be celebrated.

    Chewie:  I have not had any weed in many years.  At the time, it seems like a good idea.  Try getting a job now with a drug test that includes your hair.  No Way.  Off my agendae for many many years.

    Bar Harbor makes many good varieties of Sardines...the smoked kippers being my favorite. Visited the part of Maine where they are made and tried many varieties as they were all available in local grocers. Glad they didn't have the maple ones. I don't think that would be something I'd like.

    Well, I did it.  I went and bought a can.......
     

     
    Contrary to what I expected, I did not find the fillets coated with a thick sticky coat of syrup.  Actually there was mostly juice, with a sprinkling of tiny globules of syrup.
     

     
    The taste was mostly smokey, with a very slight hint of maple mostly as an aftertaste.
     

     
    No......I do not think I will buy them again.

    Its not that they were bad.  I just prefer a more traditional flavor.

    Slightly OT: If you don't want to have to pay top dollar for your sardines from now on, do not read the descriptions on the King Oscar website of why their sardines are superior. I find sardines to be OK, but not good enough to justify their price compared to other canned fish.

    I love kippered snacks. Actually, I love a can of the kippered snacks on a plate with a can of the King Oscar brisling sardines in olive oil. Some salt and pepper, some sliced onion and a little extra olive oil drizzled over everything. Add some saltines and I'm a happy camper, or angler.

    The only time I have enjoyed sardines was on a fishing trip on the river/lake that my house back up to.  It is the Tennessee River that has 8-9 dams.  I am at mile 641 and that means that it is 641 miles to Paducah, KY where the Tennessee River runs into the Ohio.
     
    We had been fishing for crappie for several hours and caught about 50 between us.  It was in February and sorta cool and we had a few jugs of evil spirits and several cans of some type of sardines.  We had not anything to eat for about six hours and we were starving.  At that time and possibly due to the influence of some evil spirits, steak could not have tasted any better.  I do remember one had hot sauce or maybe all of them did???
     
    Incidentally February and March is always good crappie time in Tennessee.

    Especially on Reelfoot Lake.

    Michael:  Reelfoot lake which was formed by a earth quake is probably the best crappie lake is the USA but our local lakes are OK.  Before regulations, my dad has brought home better than 150 crappie which he spent hours cleaning and filleting and freezing in water.  They were my favorite pan fish.  Mom would fix them for breakfast with home fries and slaw.  What a breakfast.
     
    I went with him on many trips in the spring and we would enjoy sardines sans spirits.  My dad would not drink.  He was a life long deacon in the church although on occasion he would share a cocktail with me but only occasion.  He always had sardines on his bass boat.  he sure did enjoy fishing on the lake in front of our home.
     
    He knew where to catch the crappie in the flats on the river.  He took me there every spring.  I even caught two as dad always made me have two lures out while we trolled.
    Nothing like fried crappie.  Great pan fish.

    Sundancer, I've fished Reelfoot Lake several times and the crappies always hit. We'd have several rods working and it would often be like a Chinese fire drill going from one bite to another and back again. I still can't figure out how, with all that bouncing around we never capsized. My only complaint about crappies (by the way, the official spelling of that fish in Kentucly is croppie -- apparently because the correct spelling doesn't look nice -- and in New York they call them calico bass) is that you have to fillet so many of them for a meal for more than two people. Granted, that's not as bad as all the sunfish and yellow perch that have to be cleaned for a meal.
