Yup gaggers would be the local term for those. I didn't want to offend anyone so I stayed with the polite term. It is always interesting what locals call different foods. I remember going to college in Buffalo NY and wanted to order grinders for dinner one night. That earned a evening of laughter throughout the dorm.
OMG I haven't had a hot weiner in forever. I think the last time I had one was lunch with my mom. She used to love them. Wow that had to be over 7 years ago. I love them but just never think of getting them. That is probably for the best though.

I wondered this myself a few weeks ago. It has to depend on the size. I think 300-400 sounds about right. I usually have a few once per summer. Also, once a summer I have whatever kind of big ice cream cone I want, although this summer I've had 2!
When I searched for calories, I found results ranging from 303 calories (http://www.recipezaar.com/Rhode-Island-Cl am-Cakes-224013) to 1682 calories (www.recipekey.com/therecipes/Rhode-Island -Clam-Cakes). My best guess would be arund 400 calories. - then again, it depends on how big it was. I think you are right. They are best enjoyed once in a while. I hope it was good!

Okay my fellow Rhode Islanders I seek advise that is pretty darn specific to our little corner of the world.
Today was probably the last time that I have to go out and take beach samples as the season is officially over on Monday. I am somewhat sad that the season is over but happy because I don't have to do any more samples!
Anyway the clamcakes finally broke me today as it was the last day at the ocean and I caved. So now I wonder just how many calories are in a clam cake? Do I really want to know? Probably not but I am quite a stickler for writing down what I eat and trying my best to come up with a calorie count. I won't beat myself up about it. I will just move past it.
They were really good too. I don't recommend them as a steady diet but once a summer isn't so bad.
