When Yankee Magazine sent their editor up the Maine coast in early 2017 to sample dozens of lobster rolls and crown one champion, she chose McLoons Lobster Shack for their fresh lobsters and perfect rolls. This 1 lb. lobster is McLoons’ youngest and smallest lobsters available. Also known as as “chicken lobsters” or “chicks,” this size is perfect for kids or adults with small appetites. Also the ideal size for a twin lobster dinners.

- The Difference between New Shell and Hard Shell:
Hard shells are lobsters that have reached their growing capacity. They are typically packed to the brim with meat that is firm and dense in texture.
New shells have a softer shell and hold extra water weight. The meat is typically more tender and sweeter in flavor, but you may want to try to order a slightly larger soft shell lobster!
