Maryland’s blue crab was the winner in the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) non-scientific, blind taste test. The event was held during the 2011 Maryland State Fair.
In the blind taste test, fair goers were asked to try four pieces of
crab from across the globe: Indonesia, China, South America and
Maryland. Without knowing which crab meat came from which country, fair
goers chose which meat they liked the best.
Maryland ranked first with 54 percent of votes. Indonesia received 22 percent, South America received 14 percent and China received 10 percent.
