    I got a box of standard choice Malpeque oysters. I was disappointed because the oysters is definitely in low quality, some oysters are infested with clams on shell, boring sponge (make oysters vulnerable to parasites and predators). The oysters is meaty and very briney, quite refereshing for people who prefer meaty oysters.

    Got a sack of these a few days ago, they were nice and clean, briney but not pucker your face salty. Pretty simple flavor and easy going. I will say, they were a very easy shuck, which should be worth some points eh!

    These have disappointed me soooooo many times over the past few years that I’ve kind of given up. Better to look for particular brands or growers from PEI.
