Question?? We had mussels at Joe's Crab Shack last year and LOVED them. My daughter in law has said twice "I just can't eat them. " she refuses to say more. I did a search and couldn't find any disgusting reason like they were nasty or dirty or anything. I want to have them again but I can't bring myself to eat anything that might be unclean or whatever.

Mussels are great, nothing wrong with them, butter and garlic or a spicy marinaria

OMG I love mussels!!!! Scallops are my first love but mussels are a very close second. Gary is right with the garlic and butter followed closely by a dash of hot sauce. My mouth is watering!!!

I think mussels are one of those food items that you either love or hate :dontknow: ! I can eat them, but I find they taste musky some times.

My husband and I agree on very little after 44 years of wedded bliss (lol). We do agree that we do not eat mussels. No reason just the name and appearance do not do much for me.

Ron - So good to see you posting again. This is the most posts from you that I have seen in ages. Hope all is well with your health and family.

Thanks Judy! I'm on here quite often, I just don't post much :???: ! Patrish called me a couple weeks ago just to see if I was dead or alive :bounce: ! I'm doing well and so is the family, but a lot is going on in my life right now! Really wish we could have gone to MB this year!

Nice to see Lou posting again!

I agree that some people just can't/ won't eat mussels because of their appearance. I love them as part of a steam pot (with clams & oysters).
