Coyoty almost eats pickled periwinkles.



Ting Top preserved periwinkles, a product of China.  Purchased at A Dong Supermarket in West Hartford, CT.

"INGREDIENTS: PERIWINKLE, COOKLING WINE, SUGAR, SALT, BLACK PEPPER, PICKLED SAUCE"
"CONTENT OF SOLID THINGS: NO LESS THAN 44%"
"KEEP REFRIGERATED IS BETTER: AT 3-5º C"

I like clams and scallops and escargot, and I think I've had mussels and liked them, so I figured periwinkles shouldn't give me too much trouble, even kept in "cookling wine" and "pickled sauce".  (I don't like oysters, though.  As Rosanne Rosannadanna said, it's like chewing on a phlegm ball.)  But when I opened them, the smell did give me trouble and I decided not to tempt fate, and threw them away.  They smelled like they'd been left out too long, sort of like bad sourdough starter.  Maybe they had been, because I found them on an unrefrigerated shelf.  Maybe that's how they should smell, if it's from the unidentified pickled sauce, but I'm not going to test with others.
