McLobster Photo Gallery

Here’s the idealized version of the McLobster, McDonald’s answer to the lobster roll, which made its way to McDonald’s in Ontario:

And here’s a photo of an actual McLobster, purchased here in Accordion City. It’s not as pretty:

As for the taste, here’s what National Post writer Rebecca Tucker had to say:

  • “…this McLobster does not smell like lobster. It doesn’t smell like anything but lettuce. Which, actually, is pretty much what it tastes like, too. Lettuce and celery.”
  • “…sweet, but not like lobster: more like imitation crab…”
  • “And I can’t believe I’m saying this about something from McDonald’s, but it neededsalt. It doesn’t taste bad so much as it doesn’t taste like anything at all. It is lobster that has had its flavour replaced by a  ‘Mc.’ It is lettuce and mayonnaise.”

Let’s get a look at another promotional photo:
