Great trip of oysters this month, probably the best yet. Mid Coast Mild was our favorite.

All 3 oysters were great. Especially lked the wild
We have only ever received the freshest and best tasting oysters. I’ve always considered myself an oyster lover but Real Oyster Cult has turned me into a connoisseur!
We have had 2 shipments of our monthly subscription of oysters and have enjoyed them all. They arrive in great condition, and have tasted wonderful. We have some raw, and some roasted and have appreciated the different flavors of each type.
The Black Magic oysters were amazing! They were easy to shuck, had a great shell to meat ratio and were simply divine!
Made linguine with clams in about 15 minutes. I should have taken a picture but we admired it briefly and gobbled it up. Water, vermouth the liquor from the class and herbs! Perfecto!
Got this for my husband for his birthday- he loved the oysters!!! Great gift for a guy who has everything!!!!
I got a subscription for my boyfriends birthday because he loves oysters. We had fun shucking them and an even better time eating them. They were super fresh and delicious! Looking forward to next months!

Product arrived on time & well chilled.
Easy to shuck
Love the monthly oyster delivery! As new parents, having oysters on automatic delivery, allows us to have a guaranteed at home date night without having to handle logistics. Simply shuck and open some wine once the baby is asleep!
It was wonderful.
Three kinds of oysters Three kinds of winners! Can’t wait for our next delivery

Fresh and tasty!
The Mintersweet were the prettiest shell and loved their briny flavor
We’ve ordered fresh oysters three times and each batch has been awesome. Something fun to look forward to every month!

most beautiful oysters we have had in a long time, our last order was great but this order was delicious!
Friends get together each month for oysters, wine, lobsters, and great conversation---Thank you Oyster Cult
The oysters were delicious and received with great packaging. Appreciated the gloves and shucker tool.
All three varieties were delicious and relatively easy to shuck! Cant wait for the next shipment!
Just like last time, these were dynamite! Plus, my oyster shucking confidence is higher than ever.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our monthly oyster experience!
Beautiful. Meaty but delicate. Easy to open
This last order was my son's favorite. He liked the milder brine and he said that the oyster had an almost umami flavor.
This is our second month with the subscription and we love it. It’s something to look forward to! Make sure to check out the website for the pairings of that particular oyster which include a libation and music.
This was our third shipment of oysters and they have all been excellent. I highly recommend the Real Oyster Cult.
Loved the 40 count duo. Fresh taste and fast, on time shipping. Can’t wait for the next batch.
They were really delicious...it's like getting a tasty present once a month.
Really delicious. Small and plump. Can’t wait for the next shipment!
Loving my Christmas gift subscription from hubby. As an Eastern Seaboard girl currently “stuck” in Texas, I love having a “taste of home” each month. Here are a few of my presents before, during, and after…. Can’t wait for the next box!
A pan of fresh oysters in the fridge for whatever whatever!
Took me two and a half days, now I'm planning what to order while I wait on my next Trio.
We have had 80 oysters so far and not a single dud. Keep em coming!
Pink moons were a crowd pleaser
The Barnstable Harbor oysters are med-large juicy, briny, sweet and wonderful! Gotta love Cape Cod.
A great gift from the sea. Delicious!
Oyster arrived cold, tasted good! What else is there to say!
We are loving this experience!!!
We live in Charleston, SC and eat our delicious local oysters regularly. This has been a very fun way to have a date night with a treat from other areas in The US!
Beautifully packaged with information about each bundle of oysters.
The package shipped during a snow storm, and it arrived late which was out of their responsibility. However, the response from the team was outstanding. They wrote to us and kept us informed. I will definitely order from them in the future.
I’ve had over a 1,000 oysters from Oyster Cult and can’t even count on one hand bad oysters I received. Where besides this company can anyone claim that, even from a local fishery. If you are truly an oyster lover this is the ONLY place to get shipped oysters. The variety and quality are superb! I would never cancel, I love them!!!
Made our own set up and they were delicious! Love our a little oyster diary where we can keep track of all of our notes. Best thing I’ve found in such a long time! Turns a Tuesday night into something special :-)
Loved these two varieties: Irish point and Summerside, both from PEI. I had been doing the trio, but it was a lot for me to shuck. This smaller batch of 20 was perfect for me. They arrived chilled and tasted super fresh. I love the interesting varietals.
We've had two deliveries of Oysters of the month and they have both been terrific! Love the oyster shucking knife and gloves too. Can't wait for our next delivery!

got pemaquids, chebooktook and another from Rhode Island I can't recall... somethig salt pond. All fresh, all briny and oh so delicious.
Signing up another couple, great enjoyment
Great box this month! Loved both the oysters I got.
My family is very well aware of my devotion to oysters on the half shell, and brilliantly chose a subscription as a Christmas present. No more ties, no more books, no more sox, just oysters! Have received two deliveries, each pristinely packaged to ensure quality, each according to schedule. And they have been superb: wonderfully varied, each absolutely succulent, each straight-from-the-sea fresh. I am seriously considering a whole year subscription, even if I need to take out a HELOC. Well, maybe not a HELOC, but surely another subscription. Best treat ever!
Always super fresh and delicious! I wish there was a bit more variation in east and west coast. Very happy with the subscription and will be re-upping when we are done traveling!
The Oysters and Caviar are always awesome as expected. This time i went with a mignonette, classic cocktail sauce with extra horseradish topping and of course some caviar. Made a side seaweed salad and enjoyed by all depending on what you prefer. This batch of oysters was even more special, as I believe the cold water temps make a harder shell and all around better oyster. But then again I haven't met an oyster I didn't like really. I like my oysters naked most of the time, but sometimes I put a robe on. ; )
Always the freshest and best quality oysters, delivered to your door.
I say Wow to both the service and the oysters in my first cult installment. Belle Du Jour was medium not crazy brine with a great, rather sweet texture. East Beach Blonde had a firly briny flavor, not metallic, and a robust texture that almost made me think crunchy. Wonderful all the way around. No mignonette needed!
Rochester, New York
What a great service. Finding a box of oysters on our front porch is an amazing way to start the year. Also helped me get over my fear of shucking.
It was the first time I shucked an oyster myself, but I watched the video on the website, and I managed not to maim myself. Win! It was easier than I thought it would be. Both varieties I tried were very tasty! Can't wait for the next delivery.
Cant wait for our next shipment!
We gifted a year of this monthly subscription to my father for a milestone birthday. He absolutely loved the selection of oysters, and the thrill of receiving the package each month. A really great experience all around!
Plump and fresh, extra briny!
All 3 types were delicious. Perhaps favorite was Glacier Point from AK. We prefer the smaller size so these were all perfect. And super easy to shuck!
Loved our first delivery of oysters! They were great! Looking forward to next month!
Excellent service and tasty tasty oysters! Living in the Pacific NW, we don't get the opportunity to try eastern seaboard oysters very often - well pretty much never. Real Cult Oysters delivered on serving up the oyster goods, allowing us to sample oysters from areas like Prince Edward Island and the Real Cult Duxbury Farm. We are such big fans of the oysters and Real Oyster Cult that we are talking about a future Northeast Adventure which of course would include a stop at Real Oyster Cult to say hi to Sim and the team. Thank you Real Oyster Cult team!
So, so good. They called the oysters “small,” but I’ve definitely had smaller- and look at this picture! These were delicious, came on time, and had a temperature gaze thing so we could check to make sure they were fresh.
Fantastic oysters! Can’t wait for the next order.
Fantastic! Gift for my oldest son but fun for the whole family. Oysters were amazingly fresh. Looking forward to next month.
Absolutely delicious! What a great way to kick off the holiday and have something to look forward to every month! Thanks Real Cult!
Such a special treat. Delicious oysters made for a great and special night!
Got an Oyster Cult subscription as a fabulous Christmas present, slipped into the shucking gloves on Christmas eve and lollipopped some of the best oysters I have tasted (I maintain weekly a buck-a-shuck list!). Arrived ice cold, labelled by species, and perfectly enticing. Excellent quality and a real adventure!
We look forward to our monthly shipments and this month’s Silver Bells and Belle Du Jour did not disappoint. This is the best gift ever for anyone interested in oysters!
Real Oyster Cult is fantastic! Our oysters were super fresh, clean and easy to shuck. Such a perfect gift for anyone who’s interested in these creatures or eating them and a very fun new skill to learn together.
A gleeful smile follows every plump, juicy, tender and fresh bites of fun.
Hey all! Another month and another batch of awesome oysters! So I get two batches of 20 in my monthly order (between my other crazy indulgence orders : D) and enjoy writing my experience in my oyster journal. After trying many different kinds of oysters you start to notice that some you like more depending on the time of year. Case in point the Belle Du Jour from New Brunswick. Had them in May 2022 and gave them a "so-so" rating, earthly with a seaweed finish and small. Just got them again in December 2022 and for me a much better oyster! A little larger now and very well balanced! I typically don't add anything to my oysters when it's just me, unless they need it and again that's all what you like. So don't give up on an oyster, just try it 6 months later. And if you're a fan of the Chelsea Gems, you'll enjoy the Glacier Points from Alaska. Northern west coast with that cucumber finish. Something special we don't see here in the northeast. All the best!!! ~Zman
Always delicious! There were no leftovers.
Delicious and fresh!
There were 60, they were gone in less time than that.
Just right amount. Creamy and sweet.
Having a fresh oyster just makes life better.

Shipping was a breeze and everything came perfectly. Customer service was excellent and every question was answered in a timely manner for this newbie. We can’t wait for next months shipment!
Sailor valentine oysters from Duxbury bay were amazing ❣️❣️❣️
Always fresh and delicious. We are always excited when the oysters arrive….and always on time.thank you!
The La Saint Simons and Chelsea Gems were outstanding! I was not as impressed by the 3rd selection, which is probably why I can’t recall their name, but He Who Cannot Shuck thought they were just as delectable. If I had known that in advance there would have been no equal sharing . Love that The Cult gets fabulous oysters to the far inland mountains of WNC!
Best birthday gift ever!
Some baked goodness on a cold night!
Shipwreck was really good however the Gems and Duxbary I think where just spectacular- out of this world!
The ROC Reserve oysters from Duxbury are the best- sweet, briny, and just the right size.
As always, the oysters were fresh and amazing! Highly recommend adding on some mignonips as well!
Great to have a fresh oyster surprise each month! I live in Wyoming, far, far from any oyster bed.
We look forward to and enjoy getting oysters every month. What a treat!
The perfect petite manageable size and briny flavor.
Every order has wonderfully fresh oysters!
So good! Great packaging love the passport of oysters! Beyond my expectations!!! Mmm
Amazing oysters and service! My husband and I are huge oyster fans and recently signed up for the monthly service. We received our order quickly and in great condition. The oysters were cold and fresh, and the accessories (gloves and shucker) are the best we’ve ever used. The customer service is also top notch as we had some initial issues with UPS delivery that were taken care of ASAP!
The wasters arrived on time. They were all nice and cold. They were easily shocked. And they were quite well enjoyed by everyone who had them. Excellent job thank you
It was a great way to try your newest oysters. I split them into 3 different nights and started my complementary oyster journal. I have been buying from y'all for around a year now. Keep up the good work. I tell everyone about y'all
The two types I tried this month were Great White from Barnstable and the Osterville's. Both a bit small for me but I enjoy trying them all. The Great Whites start out with a very nice brine but then end with an earthy/seaweed aftertaste. I usually don't add anything to my oysters, but for guest the old fashion lemon and cocktail sauce would be the way to calm the after taste. The Osterville's were my favorite of this batch. Super small but very well balanced between brine, sweetness and a touch of a slight metallic aftertaste. Always my favorite part of the month receiving my membership shipment! xxooxoxox ~Z-man
Great white is so good. It's a creamy and rich taste.
I’m a monthly club member and have enjoyed every single oyster I’ve received. This month the Great Whites we’re featured and I was so impressed I just ordered another 100 to enjoy and share with my friends! Have also ordered from two other oyster outfits and neither match the quality and freshness of TOC. I’m hooked!
Not a bad one in the bunch. Delicious!
I really like the quality of the oysters. Always surprised with trying something new. Just hope shipping can go back to FedEx. UPS delivery staff my area aren’t as meticulous with perishable items.
Truly worth every penny. Oysters are always unique and amazing. Love the service, quality, and surprise when it comes every month. If you love oysters you need this NOW!
Great Oysters and fresh.
