The Fish Society, one of the United Kingdom's most respected mail order purveyors of all things from the world's seas, has rolled out a huge assortment of crustaceans to satisfy a hungry group who are thumbing their nose at the current economic forecast. At 2,500 Great British pounds their "Caviar and Crustacean Atomic" hamper is laden with 17 different delicacies from the four corners of the globe. Included in this feast are 16 inch long giant Siberian crab legs, extra large crab claws from Chile,
freshly cooked native UK lobster, four kinds of prawns including monster sized half-pounders from Madagascar weighing in at half a pound each. The centerpiece of the spread is 750g of Sevruga caviar, yum!
Fish Society Chairman James Smith feels that the company helps take the stress out of putting together the assortment by providing a great balance of items already preselected for the customer. As for the price "It's not difficult to get to these price points if you are dealing in meaningful amounts of caviar. I can assure you they are good value." The hampers are intended to serve, and satiate, thirty people.
I don't think that I'd like to foot the bill for this extravagance, but I would love to be invited to the holiday party of someone who did! As an aside, as far as I could tell they only deliver within the UK and Europe but there was some note on the shipping page about the hamper being delivered outside the standard postal codes, so maybe they could be convinced to send it stateside too.
