$3.99 for Canadian Snow Crab Clusters...Is this a good deal?

I freaked out when I saw that Snow Crab Clusters were $3.99/lb and bought 5lbs. Now I'm wondering, was this a good price?

  1. Depends, are you in Canada or the US? Here in Canada, the cheapest I've seen them are 5.99lb. Most often, they're 8.99lb.

    1. That is a great price. The lower priced snow crabs may be smaller and sometimes the meat (showing in the knuckles) is more beige than white. So, you may be getting second string offerings, but still good.

      1. Thank you! I tried a few legs last night and they tasted great - sweet and yummy.
