    I like the stuff. In certain things, in certain locales... SOMEbody likes it; we certainly got a case or two every month when I worked at the Fewd Dawg.

    I eat some pretty questionable stuff and I won't touch Clamato... Or fish sauce.

    Clamato /kləˈmętoʊ/ is a commercial drink made of reconstituted tomato juice concentrate and sugar, which is flavored with spices, dried clam broth and MSG.
    Big item in Canada - the basis of their Caesar - basically a bloody Mary made with Clamato. Hm... so that's where the stuff goes. Once again, thanks Canadians, for helping dispose of this misbegotten mixer.

    I suppose if Clamato isn't on your grocery shelf, you could approximate one by squeezing a nice fat clam or two into your bloody Mary. As if it isn't crowded enough with Worcestishoe sauce, horseradish, celery, lemon & whatnot.

    Clamato is revolting enough on its own, why ruin perfectly good tomato juice? But what it REALLY nauseating is "Bud Light with Clamato". Yes, you can buy cans of beer with clamato already mixed in. EWWWWG. Now lest we think that a rarity, my local tiny convenience store has limited shelf space in the cooler, yet they must sell enough of the stuff it has its own place in that cooler.


    rjb, I grew up in MAryland, and I do miss the crab shacks. A sheet of either kraft paper or newspaper on the table top, and dump a pile of steamed blue crabs on it. Pass around nutcrackers. Make a mess. Goes well with beer.

    Leo got it, you can't make a Caesar without Clamato.
    Generally just with a stick of celery, but this is a 'full dressed' version. Must have salt & pepper on the rim.

    Hevvins sakes! That looks like a contender for Missus Murphy's Chowder. Being a Canadian specialty I expect there must be some maple syrup in there.

    Now that would have me hurling. Such a fine line between patriotic and abomination.
