The whelk is famously reckoned to be an aphrodisiac, but it’s possible this is a canny marketing strategy dreamt up by whelk fishermen. Either way, you get a serious piece of meat offering a rewarding chew (and no shell - you just get the meat). These whelks have been cooked, but you can reheat them if you wish. Apparently a lot of people type ’whelk clam’ into Google. If that led you here, take note, the whelk is not a clam. Clams have two symmetrical shells which fit tightly together. However, the whelk has just one shell, which is like a snail’s. This pack is cooked whelk meat that is 100% edible from British Whelks. We grade these from small through to extra-large. Unless you're a whelk super-fan the medium size usually keeps most customers happy. The whelk meat is frozen together so you will have to defrost and the meat all at the same time. The packs are 200g of cooked meat so it shouldn't be too much of a challenge for a hungry whelk lover. ]
