The other day, I went to my local Meijers’ (regional grocery store) to buy some frozen breaded clams. They didn’t have any. No problem.
Since our Meijers’ store is not as big as others, I decided to check out the large Cascade Meijers’ store to see if they had frozen breaded clams. After all, it is the Meijers’ flagship store. But, they didn’t have any either. Rats!
I was about to give up and declare frozen breaded clams to be only a figment of my imagination, when John, my son-in-law, suggested going to Gordon Foods which was just down the road.
Now, Gordon foods is a commercial food supplier that has a few stores for retail. And, because It is geared towards restaurants or non-profits, it sells everything in large quantities. So, you can buy a gallon of ketchup or 2 gallons of pickles. But, they also have a large selection of frozen foods. So, I check them for breaded frozen clam strips.
Sure enough, they had them. YES! But wait, they are sold in 6 pound boxes. I looked through the case to see if they were sold in smaller packages but they weren’t. So, it was 6 pounds or nothing. So, I bought a box. Fortunately, the box contained 24 4oz packages so that makes it a little easier to manage.
I hope that I like them.
