Which Trader Joe's canned tuna?

I'm eating this right now for the first time and I had to look it up to see what others thought. Best tuna I've ever had by a mile. Never really had high expectations for tuna but this is so good!!

What is swai fish?

I just cooked up some frozen swai and it tastes...moldy. Anybody else have this experience?

Bread or cake flour?

I have a tupperware container of flour in my cabinet and I don't remember what it is. It's either bread flour or cake flour. Any way to tell without ruining a recipe?

Am I the only adult in America who doesn't like coffee?

I tried a sip when I was young and haven't ever been tempted again. Is it really the taste that people enjoy, or just the caffeine? I don't like tea either. I often enjoy the smell, and have given it a good try at times, but am always disappointed in the taste. Cold, hot, with additives, doesn't matter. I get my caffeine cold, from a machine. I wish I liked coffee, like the other grownups!
