      Having grown up in the Maritimes, with both parents having grown up in the Maritimes, their parents, and their parents too, the taste for lobster, clams, scallops, and fish is part of the gene pool. So, when Subway threw up their big advertising campaign for Maritime Lobster (which is the best lobster in the World; it is the only lobster to have two claws, and the tail is tender and succulant), well, I had to have one of their subs. I don’t eat at Subway very often, maybe three or four times a year, but I figured that would change with the new Maritime Lobster Sub Specials at Subway!

      The real problem here is trying to describe the level of dissapointment that I went through, from the time


      that I saw the offerng of lobster (immulsified, no discernible meat in there at all; it could very well have been nothing but legs and knuckles, with the knuckles being rare) to the time when I sat down to eat the sub. The immulsified lobster “meat” was on a little tray, most definitely smaller than the amount that one claw from a ‘canner’ lobster (about a 3/4 pound lobster, shell on, fresh off of the boat) would provide.

      I calculated that with the amount of immulsified lobster ‘meat’ that was provided for the $16.99 sub, they were charging approximately $68.00 pound for ‘immulsified lobster meat’, which means that as long as it came from a lobster, it can go in the sub. Run and hide Jared, you don’t ...


      • want to throw your name behind this one, and the same warning goes to Brett Favre and Tony Stewart, the infamous NFL Quarterback ad the famous NASCAR driver, who have been on a few Subway commercials with Jared. This sub is an absolute disgrace to the Subway banner, and should be pulled, immeriately.

        A friend of mine works at a Subway, and she told me that they were paying $160 for a 10 pound box of this liquified lobster goo. The ‘lobster meat’ comes in individual little trays inside the boxes, already portioned out for each sub.

        For turning such a great food into a McDonalds of seafood, this sub gets a 1, and that’s only because it almost actually tasted like lobster, and I had absolutley nothing added to

        the lobster ‘meat’ and the sub’s bread. There was not enough immulsified ‘lobster meat’ to cover the sub’s bread from end to end with it, no matter how many times the sub artist passed the knife over it.

        Run, hide, do anything, but stay away from Subway’s Lobster Sub. For any Maritimer, or anybody who knows lobster and how they are processed, we are aware of how the legs and knuckles are spread under rollers that roll out the meat from the lobster’s extremitie’s shells. Maybe if it was claws and knuckles, it would be worth the 10 times the market cost of buying a whole lobster that Subway charges, bringing it home, cooking it and making lobster rolls. At least that way, you are actually eating lobster “meat”.

    I had the lobster sub today and being from nova Scotia it was pretty good for someone who loves any seafood.
