The McLobster: Does it Exist?

Everyone wants to know whether McDonalds is adding the McLobster to its menu. The truth appears to be that in select maritime cities in Canada and New England the McLobster a lobster roll sandwich does, in fact, exist and is available seasonally.

There’s a Flickr group dedicated to the McLobster. Apparently there’s also a crabby version of the McLobster, aptly named the McCrab, that is available “along the southern coast of the Delmarva peninsula (comprising parts of Delaware, Maryland and Virginia),” if you believe Wikipedia. If you ask me, this is the reason I live in the wrong part of the country if even McDonalds is offering up seafood on the coasts.

No worries. I can make my own lobster rolls easy enough, and I don’t even have to head to McDonalds to do it.
