Shopping at Costco and looking for something a little different to snack on, I happened upon some Crab Cake Minis, made by Phillips Foods. I'm into crab cakes and these looked like the change of pace snack/appetizer I could get into so I picked up a box.
Here's the product description: Made with Phillips' famous seafood restaurant recipe, our mini crab cakes contain sweet crab meat blended with a traditional mayonnaise-based sauce and seasoned with breadcrumbs, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce.
Sounds tasty right?
Prepared in the oven per the box instructions, these crab cakes were rather disappointing. They're mostly bread, there's little crab to speak of and overall the cakes come up really short on flavor, they're underseasoned. There is no YUM factor in these cakes. What made them palatable was the dipping sauce and the squeeze of lemon. They are so lackluster, after preparing some for the tasting and being disappointed, I threw the rest of the box away. Bread with a squeeze of lemon and dipped in some doctored up mayo is not my idea of a satisfying snack. Hey Phillips, put some crab in those cakes!
I really wanted the cakes to be tasty and worthy of a repeat buy, but they just aren't. Costing me about $10 for a box of 36 mini cakes, don't waste your money on these. They get 2 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars.
