This Clam Base, besides being expensive, is not the best but it does the job intended, which is add clam flavor to culinary creations. Bought it because of the price but when I discovered it was only 8oz I realized why the low price tag. Worked fine on several dishes, a little intense in the sodium content but overall it delivered more quality of flavor. I normally buy Minor's Clam Base because it helps me to prepare a really fine seafood chowder. As of late I use the very same ingredients that go on a Boston Clam Chowder but I add lots of fresh seafood. It comes out creamy white, with diced potatoes, celery, onions, peas, carrots, corn and it taste very nice.
I used the Better than Boullion Clam Base for pasta dishes, soups and more, and it delivered to a certain point that special flavor that clam juice or base can only deliver. More like a 3.8 I settled on 4 Stars.

Okay, I am a fairly new recruit to the "bases" for cooking.
They have some MSG, but no added/additional MSG, so the amounts have been
low enough to not cause problems. (My husband gets migraines from MSG.)

We love most of the flavors, and I was anxious to try this one as well.
They don't carry anything but beef and chicken in our local stores, so all
the other flavors have to be purchased online. That makes them very expensive to use,
since the shipping is never cheap for these heavy little glass jars.

I made a batch of New England style clam chowder last week and used the clam base.
I was looking forward to a real clam-intense flavor from the base that would be more
than the milk/cream combo. It was VERy disappointing. I used enough of the product, but
I would have had to double it to get any taste, in my opinion. I didn't want to do that,
since I don't know what other flavor tweak it might have caused to have double the recommended
amount.

Over all, I love all the bases (the chili is amazing!), but the clam leaves a lot to be desired.
I also have a lobster, so the next time I make the chowder, I'll try it with lobster base instead.
This one is just too "blah" to be useful for very much.
I don't think I'll buy it again.

I recently ate a popular waterfront restaurant in the Seattle area and
had what had been purported to be 'the best' clam chowder in the whole
area. The reports were accurate and they even shared their recipe with
their customers. This product, which I had never heard of, had to be
purchased on-line which initially annoyed me but in the end was a good
decision to buy. It IS the secret ingredient to making GREAT clam
chowder and I highly recommend it.

This is the cat's meow for all soup cooking. I've had great results with this one, the lobster, chicken, and turkey Better Than Bullion bases. I now by them by the case. You will not be disappointed and you'll never go back to those boxes of stocks and broths at your local big box grocery store!!

Clammy. And I mean that in the best possible way.

A bit salty but that can be handled by going light on the amount you use or by substituting a neutral protein for clam chowder, clam sauce, etc, something like firm tofu or TVP, or that truly horrid Quorn stuff.

I'm no fan of meat substitutes but as things go (i.e., my current lady friend) this'll perk it it up nicely.

I was on a mission to replicate my favorite chowder houses' New England style recipe and came across the recommendation of using clam base while making chowder to deepen the flavor. WOW, I'm so glad I purchased this clam base. My very first batch of homemade clam chowder was an absolute slam dunk and I know it is partly because of using this stuff. I will definitely repurchase when we run out!

I love Better Then Bouillon products, and use them all exclusively, instead of granules, cubes, goo, etc.

The Clam flavor is outstanding. Strong, forward, with lots of tiny bits of real clam in the broth, and not too salty! Brings a great shellfish flavor to your recipe.

A spoonful makes canned chowders burst with flavor, and a clam broth that is great in a cup all by itself!

This is my secret ingredient for the best clam chowder. When I first used it, I was worried about too much fishy flavor or an overpowering clam flavor. Neither was the case with this product. It is mildly clammy and just adds that certain something. I am a huge fan of the chicken, beef, vegetable & chili flavors & the clam bouillon is just as great as all the others.
