    Thanks 73,
    Great, I think they have them now and then at one of my stores (Giant or Weis'). I often thought, "I wish I knew more about them."
    Does it matter if they're frozen ones, if that's all they have?

    If that's all you can get. When I was younger my dad and I would go trawling (shrimping) together and we would always catch a few soft shells in the net. We would freeze what we didn't eat fresh, but that's (in my opinion) one of those things that's going to be a whole lot better before reaching the freezer.

    No problem John if you are buying frozen they will be cleaned already.

    I'm guessing if they have them, they'll be frozen.

    I have to agree fried hard crab bodies is no fun to me either same way with crab soup don't want hold bodies or claws in there either just the meat. I mean if you are eating soup why do you want it dripping off your elbows. :confused:
