I'm 86 years old, and confess I served Tunies to my unsuspecting family consisting of three children and two adults. They were horrible, and to this day I still get ribbed by the three children. Never bought them ever again. I'm still doing penance.

We ate lots of Tunies back in the day. To me they smelled and tasted like fish gone bad but if you put them in a bun and smothered them with ketchup and mustard and onions they were...well... still bad.

Thank you for this enlightening article. I always wondered what happened to Tunies. Every time I bring up the subject nobody has heard of them. I remember having them as a kid and really liking them......a lot!
I didn't realize the origin of them and was surprised to find that they were the product of a Catholic businessman.
I also remember that we always had copies of the Catholic Digest on the coffee table
Thanks for the great article and many blessings to you.
