Lobster sandwich @ Subway

Calipoutine Jun 30, 2008 09:59 AM

My small town in SW Ontario has a lobster sandwich. I asked the manager about it and she told me it was real lobster( frozen) mixed with 2oz of mayo. A 6' is 8.49 a 12' is 17.00. I'm not interested in paying that much for something I know will be dissapointing( I rarely ever eat at Subway and when I do, its only when I'm desparate).

Have you tried it? Is it availble in the US?

          Ok, ya I know Subway SUCKS. That wasnt the point of my topic. I just want to know if anyone who LIKES Subway has tried this sandwich AND if its availble in the US. You all dont need to tell me how much Subway sucks. I already mentioned that in my first post.

              Well, I'm not exactly a Subway lover, though I occasionally patronize a decent one near my work -- but I would never in a million years try the Subway lobster sandwich. To be fair, I'd probably never eat any chain's lobster sandwich. (But I live in a coastal area, so it's easy to get the real thing.)

              Subway would advertise the heck out of that sort of thing, and I've yet to see an ad about it here in Ohio, Chain Central. So I'm guessing if they have introduced it in the US, it is in limited markets.
              I had the seafood and crab one time. Not too impressed. But I'm not a fan of pollock. What do they typically make mock lobster out of?

                Mock lobster is usually langostino, the meat of the squat lobster, which is closer related to crabs than actual lobsters.

                  fish extract, flour, water, and food grade glue.

                    Ah, ok. The stuff LJS admits to using as opposed to simply calling it lobster and leaving it at that.
                    And it deserves to be left.

                      Langostino salad can be delicious (just like crab salad can).

                      Somehow there must be real lobster in this thing -- buried in mayo -- just like McDonalds lobster rolls do indeed contain real lobster meat. I'd look closely at the description. Does it say lobster salad or lobster and seafood salad or "lobster" salad?

                        Considering that "Subway" is world famous for using the cheapest cold cuts, cheeses, condiments, tuna, etc., if you were a betting person...
