Happy National Lobster Day!
September 25th, is National Lobster Day over all over the country, although here in Maine, that's pretty much everyday really.
If they avoid the lobster pot, some of them can live up to be 100 years old. While lobsters arrive at our tables bright red, they don’t start out that way. In the ocean, they come in many different colors. Some are yellow, green or even blue. A guy I know recently caughta blue one!
Back in 2014, Senators Angus King and Susan Collins of Maine, drafted a joint resolution designating September 25th as National Lobster Day. This proclamation recognizes the men and women in the industry.
There are so many examples of people enjoying Maine's most famous export!
The Maine Diner in Wells, has served thousands of customers over the years and one reason could be that they serve lobster dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner! The breakfast there is available all day long.
For breakfast, you can start out with lobster eggs benedict, for lunch, a delicious lobster roll, and for dinner they have their most famous dish, baked lobster pie!
So, if your travels bring you anywhere near Wells, stop in and enjoy three squares a day of Maine's most famous delicacy.
A gentleman named James of the YouTube channel "Coolist", travels all over the planet in search of the coolest places and things. In his latest video he takes on our pride and joy, the Maine Lobster Roll.
Back in 2017, Yankee Magazine decided to send a writer to Maine to decide which lobster roll was the best of the best. McLoon’s Lobster Shack in South Thomaston was the big winner, so James decided he needed to form his own opinion. With COVID-19 making this virtually impossible, a company called Goldbelly came to the rescue.
Goldbelly is an online marketplace for regional foods throughout the United States. Goldbelly features products from restaurants, bakeries, delis, etc. across all 50 states.
James digs into McLoon’s DIY lobster roll kit. Each lobster roll kit has pretty much all you will need, including separate containers of lobster meat, rolls, mayonnaise, Casco Bay Artisan Sea Salt Butter, roll sleeves and an easy to use instruction card..

Have you heard of Zagat? Their job is to rate the best restaurants and night life in the biggest cities in the world and pass the info over to you. I remember clutching on to my Zagat guide the first time I went to New York City.
Molly Moker is a Zagat editor and she decided to give up the bright lights and big cities for the simple life of the great state of Maine and her quest was simple, track down Maine's best lobster roll.
Molly hit Wiscasset, Portland, Freeport, South Thomaston and even McDonald's during her search. Based on this video, it looks she didn't mind the assignment.
