    Oh my. Tinned mussels are already always a hit with me, but this kicked it up a notch. By themselves, they’re lovely. Tender and savory, plenty of garlic, nice clean sea taste. However, I 100% recommend taking the advice in the caption. These are made for crusty bread. I added a squeeze of lemon, spooned mussels and their oil onto broiled baguette slices, and topped with just a flake or two of flaky sea salt. Absolutely decadent. 10/10, have already recommended to a friend!!

    These were delicious. I can’t stress enough how good these were. I ate them over a slice of toasted, crusty sourdough. It took everything I had in me not to soak up all the garlic parsley oil with the bread and I only stopped myself so I could cook with it later (it turned out great).

    The mussels have a strong (in the best way) garlic flavor with some freshness from the parsley. Garlic and parsley is quickly becoming my favorite flavor combination for tinned fish.

    Strongly recommend. I will be buying again.

    This was my first experience with tinned mussels and I’d say it was neutral to positive! I liked the flavor but wasn’t crazy about the texture – kind of mushy and grainy. Eating them on crunchy potato chips helped a lot with the texture issue though, and I gobbled them all up while cooking my actual dinner. Not sure if I’ll order again. Nice amount of protein though!

    Very good on their own, but truly excellent when you add Maldon + lemon + cracker. As you’d expect from Ferrigno, there is a tremendous amount of visible garlic and parsley in the tin. The mussel quality is high, texture is very good and consistent, the value is crazy-strong here for what you get for your money.

    In fact, this Ferrigno tin might very well be the perfect “$6 or less” mid-range tin of mussels. (I’d probably have to put them up in a direct head-to-head taste test with Trader Joe’s mussels for that title.) While Patagonia lemon mussels are still my overall favorite followed by Fangst, both of those tins are more expensive than these … so … yep, absolutely reserve a spot for these Ferrigno mussels on your pantry shelf. Recommended!

    Very good tin of mussels. They look great upon opening and are packed in quite a large volume of good quality oil. I was pleased (as usual for Ferrigno tins) at the amount of extras in the tin. Lots of garlic and herbs. Enough for every bite. The mussels tasted as great as they smell. However, I found the texture to be ever so slightly dry for my tastes. This was surprising given the volume of oil in the tin. That said, I still thoroughly enjoyed this tin of mussels. It just isn’t my favorite. I still have many more mussel brands to try, but Patagonia (and Trader Joe’s, shockingly) beat these out ever so slightly.

    Oh, my! As I read through these reviews, I get the distinct sense that I may have done something wrong, or just gotten a bad tin. When I opened it up, the scent of parsley and garlic was lovely. But as I worked my way through it, direct from the tin and with chip accompaniment, things started to taste “fishy” and not in a good way. I thought, “perhaps heated in a water bath?” but the tin was already open. By the end, I was very disappointed. Brave soul that I am, and ever the optimist, I’ll give these another try and hope they live up to other reviewers assessments.

    Another huge hit with us, although we still preferrd the Patagonia mussels w/ lemon and herbs. To be fair, we did not have any lemons around when we tried the Ferrignos so a little fresh lemon might have done wonders. The Patagonias were also probably superior in terms of texture, especially for those who prefer smaller mussels to the largish (for tinned mussels) one by Ferrigno.
