You can buy an equivalent cocktail sauce, pre-made, and many fish counters sell the little pre-cooked shrimp. It wouldn't take much to mix the two together if you are missing those old shrimp cocktails.
Nooooo! The whole point is that they came in a re-useable GLASS!

I just remembered these and realized that I have not seen them in stores in recent memory. She must have bought them at a plain grocery store because there weren't any specialty stores around in the 80s.

Has anyone seen these, or know where to find them nowadays¿

Yes! My favorite after school snack in HS. "Sau-Sea" shrimp cocktails. I remember they came in cute little glasses that we re-used as juice glasses.



As I recall, they had very small shrimp and lots and lots of a tomoto-y sauce. Very "saucy".

Yeah, it was. When I was little, mom used to buy one for me as a treat once in a while. She got the glass.

The little ones you mentioned were edible and worked when we were first married and I could afford shrimp, plus the jars were re-usable as juice glasses.

We also had the "real thing" before dinner as an appetizer. These, however, were great little snacks. To me, they didn't taste at all like actual shrimp cocktail made with fresh jumbo shrimp. a squeeze of lemon, and home made cocktail sauce, made with horseradish and ketchup.



The Sau-Sea shrimp cocktail was it's own food. The copious sauce didn't seem to have as much, or any horseradish in it.



My mother bought them as "healthy snacks". I think we kids liked them best. My parents also liked the low calorie low carb aspect.

very saucy but not all that good or I didn't think so. But again dad was quite the fisher man plus we had a lot of sea food stores near where we lived in So. CA so I was used to fresh seafood.

I wouldn't eat one now, but I loved them when my age was a single digit.

I used to eat, enjoy, a lot of things that I wouldn't consider eating now.

I remember my parents getting them for Sunday dinner appetizers, gotta be over 50 years ago. I was not a big fan. The lids popped off with a church key opener, not screwed off. I wonder, were they sold off the shelf or refrigerated? I can still picture the glasses, which we also reused.

Refrigerated.

ETA, I'm not sure if they required refrigeration.
