Chickens Of The Sea Essay

994 words - 4 pages


Not long ago, a friend once told me that he heard Jessica Simpson say on television, that a brand of canned tuna called “Chicken of the Sea” literally means, chickens that live in the sea.

Second, just by observing the label itself, you can see many clues that lead to the conclusion that the product inside is indeed tuna, or at least a fish product. A label can contain valuable information, such as nutritional facts. When you look at the label you can clearly see the word “tuna” printed on the front, and again in small print stating that this tuna is “the best tuna”. The label also claims that the product inside is full of “heart healthy omega 3” and to my knowledge, chicken does not contain omega 3, or at least enough to make it something to advertise. A quick initial glance at the ingredients list, shows that tuna is listed as the main ingredient, while chicken is nowhere to be found. Another clue is that
