When I am heating up a can of Clam Chowder, tossing in a can of the Smoked Oysters (oil and all) make it that much better. Quick and Good works for me.


Tried it...Good Aunt Bee, real good. Thanks Mayor

Welcome to roadfood Umberto Do you play poker? There is a famous Umberto who does.

There is some info here somewhere about wat the little numbers, use by dates, on the can mean. Where was that, anyone? Post the #'s and I bet someone can tell you.

My rule, if it looks and smells OK, and a small taste is OK, I eat it, but.... I'm kinda brave about that kinda stuff. Are they smoked oysters?

I've also had them as the filling for stuffed small mushrooms at a party.

After reading this thread, I bought a can of smoked oysters last week at wally world. Opened the can, ate one, and it was nasty. Hubs had told me he liked them, so I wrapped them up and put the in the fridge for him to eat, but he ended up putting them outside for the cats. The cats wouldn't eat them either.

It's been three days since I tasted that thing, and even though I've brushed my teeth 9 or 10 times and gargled with mouthwash, that awful taste is still in my throat, and that smell is still in my nostrils. I'm sure they weren't spoiled, so I guess I just don't like smoked oysters. Or maybe I should just try another brand.

I have heard people either adore it or revile it forever. I suppose it's like nuoc mam, an acquired taste.

I don't care for them. Like Treet canned meat...you love or hate it. Now if my ticker could take it I would eat Spam at breakfast eveyday.

Okay, possible silly question...are all canned oysters smoked? I like fresh oysters raw or on the grill JUST until they open as I like the "oyster" taste. A co-worker of mine eats them at work often and tries to get me to try them as she knows I'm an oyster eater. Haven't done it yet....
I have to stop by the store on my way home and am thinking about getting a can...or not.

I seem to be cursed with "Grocery Store Dyslexia". Lately I've found myself scanning the shelf for something I want and then inadvertently selecting a neighboring product instead.

This has lead to selecting: limeade instead of lemonade, microwave kettle popcorn instead of light butter popcorn, and canned oysters instead of canned smoked oysters.

I was moved by this thread to try canned smoked oysters, but because of my grocery store dyslexia I can indeed testify to the fact that non-smoked oysters do exist in the can.

Thanks for the response. I stopped at Albertson's last night as I said I would and all they had was smoked. I actually felt my mouth water a bit but that could have been a mixed message so I declined on the smoked oysters. I'll keep looking. One more question, are they a product of the USA?

I like those canned smoked oysters but they don't do much for your breath. I use them in Oyster and Andoulle Jambalaya. For eating right outa the can ... Roland Mussels in Escabesche are much better.

From the can.


I'm so ashamed.

Dr. Seuss would've done it better! I'm not ashamed of the way I like them, though. However: I vaguely remember that when I was a little bitty kid, I saw them (in an unlabeled bottle?) and was horrified at what I thought my parents were eating. Scared, too.

Oh yeah! Those little suckers seem to have an affinity for cream cheese and sour cream.

I really should stop hanging out around here. Sometime back, a similar topic concerning canned foods popped up, got inspired went and bought a dozen or so of assorted delicacies such as sardines, potted meat, vienna sausages, Beenie Weenies, etc. Polished all those off. Now I gotta get smoked oysters!!

Fried and raw is the only way I enjoy those little fellows.

Many years ago I ate 50 raw oysters. I thought that was a super feat until I read about that being below average.

We only have one place in Knoxville that serves real good fried oysters.

Mamaw Smith use to make oyster stew or soup many years ago. I enjoyed it then but it has been at least 55 years since she did that.

Has anybody ever told you you're way too suggestible?
