Looks

  • Fresh oysters are plump, the meat fills at east ⅔ of the shell and it has plenty of ocean water.

Smell

  • Fresh and mild. Oysters smell like the ocean. Trust your nose.

Flavor

  • Oysters taste like kissing a mermaid (better than you can imagine)

(Note: Not everyone loves oysters, but give it a chance by trying a few times, because oysters are an acquired taste)
