United States

California—Tiger Tails $27.99 a Pound


At the Stanford Shopping Center, right near Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, I noticed some nice looking seafood in one of the shop windows.   I went into the shop to check out the shrimp prices.  Wow, I discovered this shrimp selling for $27.99 a pound, the highest retail price that I’ve ever seen on shrimp.


That little tag above the price says:


Wild Frozen

Tiger Prawns

4/6 [count per pound], Bangladesh
