Good point.

They are king crab legs for sure.

It was $29.99 some weeks ago.


It says product of Russia (if any of you guys care where it comes from).

I have been told by the newspaper, restaurants, retailers, etc. that the high prices in the past few seasons were due to the king crabs being a high end hot commodity in Mainland China. With the anti-corruption crackdowns that have been going on, lavish feasts seems to have have dwindled in numbers.

I wonder if that would cause a reduced demand in China, and some corresponding lower prices here?

Let's hope so ... I remember like 6-7 years ago you could find some (semi-shady) places selling for $8.88... then last year the cheapest one I could find was like $36

FYI for anybody that is interested:

T & T is selling King crab for $26.## per lb (on a flyer), and their crabs are 7lbs or lower.

^^ I don't know I just don't feel like king crab anymore. Must have had too much for the past few years.
