Golden State Mussels... I like that... Likewise, instead of saying that California Mussels are "orange" something as simply as calling it a "red-gold" or "golden-red" can help change perception as well... besides, isn't yellow + red = orange anyway? "Orange" in reference to seafood color makes them sound sickly, whereas anything "Golden" makes them sound exotic or luxurious.


Nice post. I have had the very same reaction when I try to share CA mussels with people--they want to know why they are "so orange."

Maybe just convince them that the color is an asset and call them "California Gold Mussels"?
