Reddit Is Divided Over Aldi's Stuffed Clams
By Dai Poole
Prepackaged frozen seafood can be a gamble, and stuffed clams, a New England classic made of clam meat, buttered breadcrumbs, garlic, parsley, and onion, aren't the easiest to pull off. This is what fans and detractors on Reddit had to say about grocery chain Aldi's frozen rendition of stuffed clams.
Many users complained that there was way too much breading on the clams, with one writing, "I was surprised that the breading wasn't on top of a clam muscle. Instead, they are just tiny bits of chopped clam mixed into the breading." Another agreed that the product is mostly breading, but they brightened it up with a homemade sauce.
However, another user wrote, "I can't find good baked clams anywhere anymore, and tbh this isn't a bad substitute [...] If you eat the whole pack, you'd probably get tired of them quickly but one or two hits the spot." If you do decide to try this product, one user says to "Just cook em a little longer than the time on the package."
