Canned Sardine Price?

Due to my addiction to eat Canned Sardine as breakfast for its amazing taste and being full of calcium in its skeleton, should I buy them and ship them from my country or from Switzerland (Quality vs Price)?

Are you a troll? Plenty of tinned sardines here.
That is not a very friendly response. The second sentence alone would have sufficed.

But possibly not entirely undeserved.

Time will tell...

I'm guessing that the tinned sardines you can buy in Switzerland are not caught in Swiss waters. I'd also bet that Saudi tinned sardines had never ventured anywhere near the Gulf, or the Red Sea, before they were scooped up with a pod of dolphins and crammed into new living quarters (although sardines do venture up that way, so I read on the interwebs). Indeed, the origin (and quality) of both sets of fish may well be the same. If your sardine consumption justifies the personal importation of tins of these finned delights, and you are willing to navigate the complex web of Swiss customs legislation and import duties, then go right ahead.

Please note that Swiss eggs are also very tasty, and their shells are packed with calcium.

They sell it here either imported from America (few brands including Crown Prince), or from the Philippines, no local canned sardine, only fresh, raw ones are Local (from the read sea or the arabian gulf).

Now about the Swiss eggs, are they humans or pigeons eggs?

Re: Canned Sardine Price?

I usually catch my own sardines before breakfast. And, naturally, lay my own eggs...
