McDonald's said the lobster roll is made with "100% North Atlantic lobster meat" that’s sourced from multi-generational wild lobster fisherman at established East Coast wharfs. Each sandwich is made with lobster meat that’s tossed with mayo, a bed of crisp leaf and shredded lettuce, and a toasted roll. However, unlike most lobster rolls you’ll treat yourself to this summer, the McDonald’s version will set you back only nine bucks.
There’s just one catch (no pun intended, we promise): McDonald’s is only selling the lobster rolls in New England states; specifically, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, Massachusetts (excluding locations near the Albany border area), and Connecticut (excluding Fairfield County), according to the spokesperson. So, if you live elsewhere, you’ll just have to continue dropping upwards of $20 to enjoy a lobster roll -- all three or four fleeting bites of ‘em. Obviously, they're worth every damn cent.
