Smile King Crab Legs...fresh from Alaska.

Only you can decide if this price is a good deal or not. It's $62 for
3 pounds of King Crab Legs direct from Alaska...normal price is $124.95.

Here is a link the the original website for more details.

$20/lb is a bit steep for me... Love crab but I'll have to settle for the frozen stuff.

It does not state anywhere that they are not frozen. It does state they are packed in dry ice. I believe that the process for King Crab Legs is cooking and flash freezing. Correct me if I am wrong. I always see them in Costco for $16.95 a lb.

Usually I see them at Restaurant Depot cheaper per lb. than that.

From what I can determine from the website is that these Crab legs
are Fresh, NOT frozen...and each leg weighs 1 lb. each.
Because they are fresh...they are only available for 3 months of the year.

I'm sure this deal isn't for everybody....but Christmas comes just once
a year....and we only get one shot at life, there are no "do overs".

It's too expensive for me too. But I thought some might find it to
their liking. Unless you live in the area like Northwest BBQ does,
mail order of the premium stuff may be the only option.

It's in the FAQ that they're fresh. :)

Frozen would be just as good. These are a bit pricey for me. But I bet they would be fantastic

Site won't take my Groupon code and the vendor's phone goes to voicemail. Exercised "The Groupon Promise" and asked for a refund.

Doesn't matter - this inspired me to go get some crab! :)

I'm pretty sure they had a limited amount of this deal available; and
most likely they have sold out.

I got a deal, my CC was charged and I got my Groupon. :)

The problem is that their site doesn't recognize my promo code. I'm not sweating it; I'm sure Groupon will take care of me.

One way or another, I'm having some crab.
