UPDATE 3/3/11: It seems the McLobster is just a rumor. McDonald’s took to their Twitter site to clear the air: “Despite all the rumors there r no plans 2 bring #mclobster or mcsushi 2 the US menu. We r working on a new menu item called McWinning.”
“McLobster” has recently been a trending topic on Twitter. What’s all the fuss about this unknown sandwich? In fact, people are wondering – is it really even a true sandwich?
It sounds like something that would be found in an episode of Spongebob, but the McLobster sandwich is actually a real sandwich. Rumors have surfaced saying that McDonald’s will be offering it at all of their restaurants in the coming months. When contacted for clarification, McDonald’s has indicated that the sandwich is not on the menu, although there is a commercial online.
But what is the McLobster? Will it really appear on your local McDonald’s menu?
Consisting of a lobster salad, served cold with lettuce and bit of celery on a hot dog bun, this sandwich can be found in the summer months in Maine, the Maritimes and Canada. It mimics the traditional lobster roll that is found in the Northern areas and is reported to be sold as part of a meal for $10.
Have you ever had a McLobster? If it appeared on your local McDonald’s menu, would you eat it?
