Good but

Grateful to have clams in such a convenient format! I like that they're packed in water. But why so much water? The water content could easily be cut in half (and so could the can size).

- Beth

Like a Treasure Hunt

Lots of liquid, not much clams, although tasty when you can find them/

- Gale

Absolutely fabulous!

These are delicious with Linguine in a quick onion, garlic, red pepper saute. An absolute must for the pantry. In a pinch, I've used 3 cans for 4 people with two salads and garlic bread.

- Grace

Fresh and meaty

These rock. Sauteed them in ghee with garlic and popped on top of a pizza for a more balanced quick meal. Buying several more cans.

- Emily

tender. tender. tender.

Cooked just right. Very tender and sweet. Delicious.

- Phoebe


I use these in soup for added protein. Or on top of spaghetti squash.

- Deb

good quality

I used this in making a clam sauce and thought the taste, size and over all quality was good. I plan on getting them again to use in chowder and fish stew.

- Monica

Best clams ever

These are large-cut surf clams and they are perfect for homemade clam chowder. The folks at Bar Harbor hand-shell and hand-pack them. They are
made with all natural ingredients. They seriously taste fresh.

Best clams I have ever had!

- Kirk

Who needs the seafood counter

There's no need to visit the seafood counter for good clams. You don't need fresh clams when you have these from Bar Harbor. They taste great, are packed well, and always of the highest quality.

Thrive Market has all you need for a healthy life, and they even have clams. Who else can say that?

- G. Tran

Like fresh clams

These clams are practically straight out of the water. Bar Harbor ensures that they only package the best of the best and you can taste in in each can.

I am not a huge clam eater, but I love a good clam chowder and these are the only clams I will use. I like that they are free of additives. Delicious.

- Jen Hodel

First Rate Seafood

I'm always cautious when purchasing seafood. There have been some tragic natural and man-made disasters that affect the sea and its residents in recent years. I don't want to feed my family tainted seafood, as I'm sure others don't.

When my wife and I joined Thrive Market, we read all the reviews and did some outside research on several of their products. Bar Harbor has the best rating for clean and flavorful seafood products. After our purchase, we agree, Bar Harbor is a great seafood product. Thanks Thrive!

Not My Favorite

I loved chopped clams, and I was happy to see a healthier alternative here on the Thrive Market website. However, I'm not too fond of this brand. There seems to be a lot of liquid in the container without too much clam. The clams themselves aren't too flavorful, but I barely notice much of the flavor once I put these clams on top of my usual lunch salad. They're okay, but I'll be looking around for a different chopped clam alternative.

- Ellie B

Clam chowder delight

I am not a big fan of clams, although I love me a good clam chowder. Since I went gluten-free I had to start making all of my soups from home, which caused me to learn how to make homemade clam chowder. After experimenting with different brands I settled on Bar Harbor as my favorite.

My only complaint is the same as the previous reviewer: they need more clams and less liquid!

- Marinda B

Packed with protein and yummy

I love seafood, and I'm also a healthy eater. Bar Harbor makes delicious canned clams that are loaded with protein, which I need for my workouts. It's also low in fat and calories, and great for eating right out of the can.

I think it's great as an occasional alternative to tuna and salmon, and my wife sometimes whips up a pasta and clam sauce recipe that is out of this world. With these clams, I can't even tell that she didn't buy them fresh from a butcher, they're that good. One thing, there's maybe a little too much liquid per can, so it can get messy when you open it.

- Adam Toll

Could be better

Well I got them delivered and everything looked good, and I opened the can, and had a bite. It wasn't bad, just not as good as I've been reading from other reviews. They don't taste as fresh as I hoped, maybe I'm spoiled having eaten a lot of fresh growing up.

I know these are canned, but I wanted the clams to be fresher than they were. They weren't spoiled or anything, just ok. I had a few shells pieces too, which wasn't great. Overall, three stars Tastes ok, but could be better.

- Amanda Trainor

Wow, tastes like fresh clams

I'm a big canned fish eater, and I've been crazy for Wild Planet's tuna and salmon for a long time. But I had a taste for clams and found Bar Harbor online. These are so tasty! They're not squishy and chewy, but moist, tender and smell fresh.

I make my own clam chowder, so these are perfect for a quick recipe I have, and they're also really good when I make my fish soup, which also has shrimp and chunks of cod. These are great tasting clams for a reasonable price.

- Angela T.

Bar none, finest clams in a can

I got these first at my local Whole Foods market, but then they stopped carrying them, so I went online I like the price here, less than I paid at Whole Foods for what I think are the best canned clams on the market.

Now look, don't get me wrong, you can't beat the real thing, fresh clams out of the sea, but these are darned close. They're great in red sauce with rice or pasta, which is how I usually cook them. They're not too fishy either, and they come in authentic clam juice.

- Anthony Terry

so good

I use this product for red or white clam sauce for pasta. Makes good clam cakes or clam fritters. Quick stir fry? Sure. Any extra clam juice gets saved in the freezer in the fish stock container... it is a nice addition to the stock. I would like this better if there were somewhat more clams and somewhat less liquid.
