Q&A

Q. Where can I get Kinkawooka products where I live?

A. Please contact our sales and marketing staff for a comprehensive list of your local retailers.

Q. Can I eat the mussels that do not open?

A. Yes you can! This is an old wives tale, and with modern harvesting techniques, we can guarentee that every mussel in the packet will be 100% safe to eat, as long as they have been suitably stored below 4 degrees.

Q. What is the shelf life of your mussels?

A. We pack our mussels on the day of harvest, with a 10 day shelflife. We do have a use by date sticker attached to the bottom left hand side of the packaging, and if this is not evident, please return the mussels to where you purchased them, asking for a packet that does.

Q. How do you know if a mussel is “Off”?

A. By “Off”, we refer to a mussel being dead. If by rare chance you begin to cook a dead mussel, the smell will be so overpowering, you will be forced to evacuate your kitchen.

Q. Do you need to use all of the mussels in the bag?

A. We do advise that you use the mussels within 2 days of opening the packet. They will keep up until the use by date if still sealed, but once opened, they should be used in 2 days.

Q. Can you freeze Kinkawooka Mussels?

A. We do not advise that you freeze a fresh, live mussel. You will find a huge loss in both texture and sweetness upon defrosting. If you do wish to freeze the mussels, cook them all up first and then freeze them A frozen, cooked mussel eats far better than a frozen fresh Live mussel.
