OMG, last night I ate the juiciest and the biggest scallops I've ever had in Ocean County.

These were large and cooked to perfection. I know this is a weird article to write about, but why not? There are bay scallops that are the smaller ones and sea scallops are the larger, plumper ones.

Where are the biggest scallops in Ocean County?

These scallops were at Captain's Inn in Lacey. They were unbelievable. I love scallops and I just thought these were the best I've had in such a long time.

Captain's Inn definitely uses the sea scallops that are "giant". I believe what made these scallops so delicious, of course, was the bacon-wrapped scallops. These bacon-wrapped scallops were the sea scallops.

I've had "big" scallops before at many restaurants but some haven't been cooked enough or just right. I'm telling you these scallops at Captain's were just perfect. I don't usually write about different places I eat because we have delicious places here at the Jersey Shore. The best seafood, steak, and let's not even mention the fantastic drinks here in Ocean County.

If you want the biggest and juiciest scallops, cooked to perfection and guess what I'm not even a fan of bacon (LOL)...head to Captain's Inn. I know I'm giving a huge plug to Captain's Inn, but they deserve it...Shout-OUT to the chef who cooked my scallops last night. They were perfect in every way.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
