Bella Italian Food Recommends

Schwan's Slipper Lobster Meat
No good seafood markets in your area? Try this great alternative. Direct from the waters of the western Pacific ocean. Delicate chunks of creamy white, real lobster meat. With a flavor that's slightly sweeter than other types of lobster. Enjoy it as an entrée or in your favorite seafood recipes.
