    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.
