So, I love the Island Creek Oysters.... but heading out tonight where I can only get Wellfleet. Anyone have any opinions on the 2? Are they similar?

      Wellfleets are well known to be among the very best east coast oysters,

        I prefer the Wellfleets. The Island Creeks are a bit sweeter than Wellfleets. The Wellfleets are more salty.
