In a close race, Legal Sea Foods was the favorite clam chowder on the “Drew Barrymore Show” on Thursday.
Drew Barrymore, Ross Mathews and three guest judges taste tested three clam chowders from Boston during the talk show. The chowders were from Legal Sea Foods, Boston Sail Loft and Yankee Lobster Co.
“I’ve been sleeping on chowder,” Mathews said after trying the first option, Legal Sea Foods.
Each of the judges went around and talked about what they liked for each one. The restaurants also got a short introduction before the judges tried them.
The taste test was part of the Battle of the Bites segments on “The Drew Barrymore Show.”
A Twitter poll also allowed viewers to vote for their favorites, which became a tight race, Barrymore said.
In the end, Twitter, Barrymore and Mathews voted for Legal Sea Foods. One judge voted for Yankee Lobster Co. and the other two voted for Boston Sail Loft.
Legal Sea Foods is also celebrating “Chowda Day” on Friday, Jan. 15. Customers can get a cup of clam chowder for $1, “because our clam chowder is still #1,” the company said.
“All proceeds will benefit our partners at Boston Children’s Hospital,” the company’s website states.
