It's nice to have some quick-food stand-bys for busy nights. My daughter likes clam chowder so we tried this frozen version available at Costco. Two thumbs....down. The eight-year old review? "Doesn't taste like clam chowder at all!" When it was simmering, I thought it smelled like French onion soup. We have two favorite clam chowders, the one they serve at Dooger's along the Oregon Coast, and Jake's, which is a canned chowder. Neither is readily available. Jake's disappeared from store shelves a couple of years ago, and we only get to the coast once a year.
