The Ubiquitous Oyster....

bluesbreaker1969 | Dec 15, 2007 02:02 PM

Hi all - I have a question about oysters and here it is...has anyone purchased a box of oysters from Loblaws/Dominion/Sobeys of the type they are advertising right now? For instance, some are listing 33 oysters for 12.99, others have Beausoleil (brand) for $16.99 for 24.

Has anyone bought these? I'm a bit skeptical when it comes to fish b/c often times what they are passing off as fresh has been sitting on ice for longer than I'd like to try. Now I'm thinking does that "commitment to freshness" apply to these...

Which brings me to my next question - shouldn't oysters be in water and not in a box, sitting on a drydock somewhere for X hours waiting for shipment, then making their way to the store, waiting to be displayed, then plopped into a fridge with a sheet of ice underneath.

I'd like to buy some fresh oysters. I'm just wondering if these are a way to go?
