Canned Crab...is any of it any good?

Canned Crab...is any of it any good?

I have tried a few

Costco had a brand that was not very good.

Plus I tried a big can of Starkist Crab from Grocery outlet that was worse.

I would like it to be good enough for Crab cake or Crab salad.

Most of the bigger cans run $7-12 so it gets a little pricey to experiment.

I noticed that Trader Joes has two brands,has any one tried them?

I used to see them pull crab out of a no name can at the old Spengers fish market in Berkeley

And that stuff was fantastic!

Do places like Piedmont Market that always has fresh Crab crack it themselves or is their some secret high end canned crab that they use?
