Rappahannock River Olde Salt Middleneck Clams - 25 count

Rappahannock River Oysters ships its legendary oysters nationwide on Goldbelly! The truest taste of the ocean, Rappahannock River Oysters’ Olde Salt clams bring together a bold sea-side brininess with a smooth, clean follow-through. Grown off the coast of Chincoteague Island (think Misty), Olde Salt clams are more than a classic, they’re legendary.

Established in 1899 by a young James Croxton, Rappahannock River Oysters + Clams in Topping, Virginia, has gone from serving local dinner tables to supplying some of the world’s finest restaurants with the freshest oysters from the Chesapeake Bay. Their incredibly fresh and tasty bivalves are all native to the Chesapeake Bay, which for centuries has been exalted for its seafood. Rappahannock River Oysters are aquaculture grown in the family-run estuary and have the perfect combination of brininess, tenderness, and natural flavor. Famous varieties like the sweet Rappahannock River oyster and the ocean-side Olde Salt are among the most succulent you can get your hands on.

Omg! The first oyster I ate tasted like the ocean which is completely foreign to us in Arizona. I was a little intimidated by how many I ordered and also how to get them opened but it was worth it and we ate them all. I'm still craving more!
