It's okay tasting crab meat, but understand that it's not a 13 oz can of meat. It's an 8 oz can of meat with 5 oz of water in it to make your 13 oz. Do a zoom and look at the label. Big difference. That works out to 38.5% water you're buying. Most of the other brands are 6 oz cans with 4.25 oz meat and 1.75 oz water making those 29% water, making the Crown Prince can roughly 1/3 more water than most other brands. It's not misstated, so no reduction in stars for dishonesty or anything. I just think that any product that is comprised of nearly 40% water and advertised as 13 oz is not as good a deal as they are attempting to portray.
I didn't look at the zoom pic dry weight before buying. I've bought it here locally by the dry pound and water weight is extra. So I was thinking I could fudge a bit on my recipe that calls for one pound of meat (yeah, I know it's cheating), throw in a slight extra bit of filler, and save a few bucks. Unfortunately for me, it goes the other way because I have to use two cans to get that pound. Live and learn.
Factor that in when you are comparing prices.
