Norumbega Dude!

The Norumbega oysters were so fresh and delicious!!! It was like a taste of the Maine coast in NYC. Glidden Point never disappoints. They always deliver overnight on time! The best!

My Favorite - The Norumbega

Just a beautiful flavor. Creamy, salty. They keep really well. Had 1/2 of the order the same day of shipping and then ate the other 1/2 a week later. It’s really the best oyster. Good size cup as well.

Briny and sweet deliciousness

We ordered 36 of these for oysters on the halfshell as a hostess gift. We shucked them and ate them with our friends in about 15 minutes! They were big hits!
