BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - It’s about that time again to feast on a type of seafood that’s considered to be a true delicacy to anyone born and raised in the Bayou State; crawfish.
Ash Wednesday marked the beginning of Lent season, making mudbugs a top choice for some ‘good eatin’, especially on Fridays.
If you’re looking to satisfy a craving, you can download The Crawfish App for free.
But the question is, how much are you willing to pay?
During a live interview on 9News This Morning, Co-founder of The Crawfish App, Laney King, mentioned prices are a little bit steeper right now compared to this time last year.
According to King, you can buy a sack of live crawfish for about $4/lb. For boiled crawfish, you might pay anywhere between $6 to $7/lb.
The free app tracks prices all across the Gulf South, with almost 1,400 businesses listed including vendors and restaurants in Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Tennessee, and even Washington D.C.
