A treat from down east: the McLobster!

Tada...the McLobster!

Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island

[I apologize for the long absence. I've been enjoying my summer way too much. But I've got some great ones in store!]

I finally had the chance-and I do mean finally-to try the famed McLobster down east. Last year when I first went to Prince Edward Island, the season just ended and I missed it by a few days. This year, we went back earlier so I was able to catch it in time.

The McLobster is like any other sandwich on the McDonald's menu. It comes with a medium drink and medium fries or a side salad.

And how was it you ask? Well, being a big fan of fresh lobster, this sandwich was delicious! For McDonalds to offer fresh seafood is already a feat, but to have it in a place where those red crusteaceans are abundant and fresh was amazing. The lobster meat was ripped to smaller pieces, mixed in with chopped celery and a light dressing that tasted like mayonnaise, put on a small white sandwich roll.

I think I had the McLobster about 3 times during my week-long stay. I already can't wait to go back next year!
