Like with safes or thermometers, the only way to get at the cool stuff inside crabs is to crack them open with a mallet. Do some delicious disassembly with today's Groupon: for $52, you get a mixture of a dozen medium and large Maryland blue crabs, two mallets, two knives, 4 feet of crab paper, a pound of crab spice, and overnight shipping from Blue Crab Trading Co. (a $106.38 value).
Blue Crab Trading Co. brings the catch of the East Coast to the doorsteps of wayward travelers by shipping crabs, fish, and all manner of seafood overnight or by next-day mail to ensure utmost flavor and freshness. Dinnertime duos can feast upon a dozen medium and large blue crabs, which each measure 5.5–6.5 inches across and are plucked directly from the company's own armada of crabbing boats and highly rated invertebrate boarding schools. The crustaceans can be pre-steamed in a seafood sauna or sent out live, though the journey can be perilous and customers should expect some dead loss. A complete set of shell-cracking tools accompanies each shipment, including two mallets, two knives, and 4 feet of paper for performing claw watercolors. Each shipment can be preseasoned to the customer's taste, in addition to the pound of seasoning sent along with every order.
