5 Reasons Eating Crabs Is Best During Autumn

With school back in session and the end of summer approaching, most people assume that crab season is also over. Well, we're here to break it to you that crab eating is actually best during Autumn. Here's why...

1. Crabs are more plump during Autumn.

They've had all summer to grow into giant, sinfully succulent morsels.

2. They're also cheaper.

There's less of a demand for crabs in restaurants during fall, so prices tend to drop.

3. Feasting outside during early Autumn is perfectly pleasant.

No longer do you have to be drenched in sweat while chowing down.

4. And your favorite seafood restaurants are less crowded.

The only person bothered by your sloppy crab mallet skills, will be the waiter.

5. There's no better way to cool off your firey mouth than with pumpkin pie.

Just trust me on this one.
