Hi,

I'm looking to buy frozen breaded clam strips, I haven't been able to find them anywhere. Can anyone help me out.

Thanks

    I have same problem. I'm told they have been available at T&T - but haven't been to check yet.
    Of course, I would never, never, never ever forget to declare them if I found them in Buffalo!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I'm originally from the NJ shore, and love fried clams. Some frozen brands in the states are pretty good, although not nearly delectable as fried clams from oceanfront spots that do them as a specialty.

      When I saw this post I realized that I have not seen them available at anyplace in the GTA. How strange...

        Buster's on the main floor of st.lawerance market sells them.
        They are served with curlies and cocktail sauce.

          They're mostly breading, though. And the sort of texture you end up with a jaw ache from. No cocktail sauce for MY fried clams - tartar sauce only.

          Does anyone remember Howard Johnson's clam roll?

              I haven't seen them in Sobey's either.

                The Sobey's on Brock Rd., Pickering, is my choice because the fish counter is better than most. (And I live nearby). The breaded clam strips are right there with the frogs' legs, cod cakes, and wooden crates of salt cod and oysters.

                        I bought the last two packages that were in the freezer. Each package (4.25$) was a styrofoam tray containing 3 individual plastic serving size bags that I would guess to be about 5oz or 150g each. I'll bet if you asked at the counter they would be able to put together a package for you as the seafood department here is quite impressive. I fried up two bags tonight for me and the kids, quite a bit of breading as you would expect but the kids and I very much enjoyed them!

                Still loving the clam stips from Sobeys. Any other place to get them?

                I was addicted to the Howard Johnson clams as a kid, but never ordered the rolls as you got many more when you ordered the plate.
                Nothing here like that, or anything like what you can get in New England.
                Once tried the ones at the market, and there was lots of breading, but you couldn't even taste the clam.

                  As somehow who used to practically live at Faneuil Market, I can tell you that I've spent many years futiley search for anything resembling a decent clam strip in Toronto. There aren't any.
