Periwinkles, also known as winkles, are small sea snails with a dark brown house and a light brown lid. The product is appreciated for its fine flavour and supple texture. Prins & Dingemanse fresh periwinkles are collected by hand between the high tide and low tide mark. Before packaging, the periwinkles are rinsed thoroughly with fresh, purified Oosterschelde water, which means they are processed clean. Then the periwinkles are selected and checked carefully and packaged live.
