Capt. Marriner's Seafood

I attended the boat show in Houston today and while I was there, I passed a booth featuring nothing but Capt. Marriner's Seafood soup. They had about a dozen types to sample. I had them all and to tell the truth, they snagged me but I guess it was a good snag.

The soup was wonderful and I bought five cans at $5.00 each. A little expensive for a 15 oz can but the clam chowder was excellent.

    I take it back!!! I just had my serving of the soup this evening and I found what appears to be a half of a rubber washer in the soup. I notified them.

    Believe me, it was chewey.

    I once heard that a lot of what is passed off as clam pieces is actually skate cut up to seem like clams.

    (Or maybe rubber washers cut up to seem like clams?)

    Ah, the poor lowly skate gets blamed once again for being an imposter! Actually the texture of skate is that of a "white" fish and not at all like a clam or a scallop, of which it has also been accused of impersonating.

    Sorry Paul for that foreign object in the chowdah.......stick with Legal's chowdah, there should be no surprises.

    Paul
    If you Boil or over cook a clam chowder it will feel like rubber. If
    you live by the shore you would know that. Our soups are a Restaurant
    Quality in a can. We have never had anyone for 3 generations ever say
    that we put any artificial Seafood in our Soups. Also the FDA requires
    us to list all ingredients that are in the can.

    Captfrank,

    That reminds me of a story.... A dog is off his leash and bites a kid. The owners syas "he's never bitten anyone before."

    Ah , duh it some point there always has to be a first.

    If in 3 generations nobody syas youy use artificial seafood in your soup, does that mean an accident ( a piece of rubber) could have come of some peice of equipment?

    Now you tell me! I read your first message, clicked on the link, and ordered six cans of soup.

    Then I came back and read the second message...

    I'll be on the lookout for washers.

    They've been in business for many years so I don't think Paul's experience is typical or indicates a recurring quality control problem. At least I hope not...I ordered a case myself.

    Some of their offerings are impossible to find.

    As a regular customer of captmarriners, I MUST defend this product. They are excellent, taste made from scratch and if you buy a can of their whole clams, they are incomparable! Jam packed into the can and the size of quarters or larger. Impossible to be mistaken for a washer. Give these products a chance and judge for yourself; you will not be disappointed!

    I noticed they sell a vegetable soup. Well I made a pot of homemade soup yesterday, and I am sure mine was just as good.

    Left over beefstew, potatoes, carrots, peas, green beans, butterbeans, corn, onions, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, and some diced & browned smoked ham.


    I let it all cook down for about 4 hours and served it up with some smoked turkey on white sandwiches... yum yum!

    I can't help wondering when Sergeant Hunk Marriner was promoted to Captain.

    Once I got a complaint on a bowl of chowder. The customer found a piece ofof bluish colored "ceramic" about the size of a dime in her soup. It was almsot the exact shade as our soup plate. We checked the bowl and it was intact. The guest was a bit upsetand refused any other food to replace it. I pulled the soup from the line and strained it. i found several other pieces of various sizes but the color was a bit lighter. We finally figured out that some how there were pieces of clam shell in the clam meat(Doie, brand) we were using. I called my sales rep and he pulled my remaing product until further research into it. That wouldnt have done someone any good to swallow as it had sharp edges. From the then on, i always straind the meat and picked thru it. It was the onlytime i ever had that happen.
