At first glance this looks like a lovely fresh fruit cup. It is up to the point that they added the canned tuna. Yummy slices and wedges of fresh fruit with a refreshing yogurt fruit dressing. Why did they ruin it with tuna? The fact that it is from the Starkist Sensational Tuna book is a clue. Another example of trying too hard to find a use for your product.
