    Lobster tail is one of my most favorite of foods to eat. I love to dip it in a lot of warm butter! Yum! I live on the Pacific coast and when we go camping on the beach, I have to have my lobster tail! Thanks for this lovely site!

    As a kid, the family would vacation on Sebago Lake in Maine. On the way there, we would stop and get a lobster dinner. It brings back wonderful memories of such a tasty treat!

    To be honest, I have never eaten lobster and yet have always wondered what the big deal was and why lobster is considered such a delicacy. I guess if I win the LobsterGram I won’t have any more excuses not to try it. I mean I can’t really use price as an obstacle if it’s free, right? 🙂

    Since, I don’t have a lobster story (having never tried it), I thought I would post a funny lobster joke here, but in my search I ran across this and decided to post it instead. Hope you enjoy word searches!

    We lived in Maine for 3 yrs with the US Air Force at Loring AFB. It was a great time. It was the first time that our three boys got a chance to see and eat lobster. We would boil them ourselves and they would just love the sound they made in the boiling water. But when the destruction of the lobster took place and they got some of the tamale on them (they were young), it was too yucky. They wouldn’t eat any of the lobster. That was just OK with my wife and me. We loved the lobsters fixed anyway possible.

    Hi,

    Interesting idea!

    I can remember when I was a kid.

    My father had ordered some maine lobster tails,
    which were shipped in a box packed with dry ice.

    He was at the kitchen counter telling us how good these were going to taste, because they
    were fresh fromm the source.

    They were only the tail, so we wondered how
    you could consider them to be fresh.

    He was plcing them one by one on a cutting
    board, and taking a knife and cutting
    the tail length wise.

    When all of a sudden they started to come alive
    and grabbing his fingers. As they were thawing
    they were curling as if they knew they could
    catch a hold of his finger under their tail.

    He kept yelling “Ouch” as continued to cut more
    of them. It was funny a hell!

    We couldn’t stop laughing…

    I find the question, “Why do you like Maine Lobster?” rather humorous. I mean, it’s Maine Lobster! You sit down at the table, you put on a bib, and you cover yourself with a complete roll of Bounty or Viva paper towels. The waitress comes over, introduces herself and asks for your order. Silly woman, give me that decadent, should be illegal, fourth of July party in your mouth, scrumptious MAINE LOBSTER! (Please), When the crimson king of the sea arrives on a plate that would never be large enough to present such a delicacy, your mouth turns into the Hoover Dam. You surround the claw first with the silver key (the claw cracker)to the world’s greatest treasure. The crack of the shell reveals succulent meat with pink highlights, you immediately skewer with your metal claw pick, and drown it in the (better be provided) cup of warm garlic butter that is the only thing that could compliment lifes most tasty dish. If you couldn’t tell, I am a fan.

    So, a gift certificate for such a treat would make this lobster-lovers dream come true.

    Myself and 3 friends saw an advertisement for all the Maine Lobster you can eat for $4.95 each. This was in 1968. We 4 went one night and kept ordering. The waitress kept asking us, you don’t want any more, do you? We always answered just one more tray. We ate 19 lobsters plus claws. We left the bread and potatoes alone. The next day the price was $6.95.

    The first time I visited Maine, it seems as though I had lobster for every meal. Lobster rolls was my favorite lunch. And so much less expensive than in my home town. The best lobster was in a restaurant where the owner/chef would sit at your table and make a lobster dish based on your very own tastes. Loved it!

    Guy sees a sign in a restaurant window, “Really BIG Lobster Tales $5.” He goes in, sits down and says to the waitress “I saw the sign about lobster. What’s the catch?”
    “No catch,” she says. “It’s just what the sign says.”
    “And it’s really just $5?” he asks.
    “Sure is,” she says.
    “Man, that’s a bargain! I’ll take it,”he says. “Gimme the BIGGEST one!”
    “O.K.” she says, sitting down next to him. “Once upon a time there was this really big lobster. He was the BIGGEST one anybody had ever seen…”

    When I was kid, I wasn’t much of a fan of lobster. In fact, I used to wonder why people would eat these giant red insects! However, as I got older, my tastes must have gotten fancier and now I crave lobster every morning, noon and night! BTW – I have a suggestion for you. Why don’t you make the comments actually appear on the front page with the rules instead of having to go into this article separately? I notice I had to click the “little” link at the bottom of the page called comments to get here. You could be losing traffic by not having EVERYTHING on the front page. Contact me if you’re interested in fixing this.

    The funniest lobster story I ever heard was from a radio talk show host. He is a very conservative political consultant, but members of his staff didn’t share his views and they sparred on the air quite frequently. His call screener was a young lady who was a staunch Democrat and ultra-liberal tree hugger. Well, she received lobsters as a gift from someone, but refused to cook them and eat them. The radio host was making fun of her about this when she announced that she had “freed” the lobsters.

    She released the “salt water” lobsters into a pond near her home. You can imagine what fodder this provided for the talk show host as he explained how her freeing the lobsters actually condemned them to death as they could not survive in “fresh water”. So, the lobsters lived a few extra minutes and no one enjoyed the taste of the finest food on the planet.

    Me? Oh yeah, I LOVE lobsters and anytime there is something to celebrate and dinner is involved… lobster is my #1 choice. I’m salivating as I type this now. . . . gotta run.

    My best Christmas meal was as newlyweds in Washington, DC in the early 1970’s. It was a quiet, “co-op” Christmas dinner with just another couple, feasting on the BEST lobster I ever ate – flown in as a Christmas present for our friend and dinner partner, Murray, from his father. Freshly trapped – iced – flown in on same day service from Booth Bay Harbor, Maine! Succulent!

    Our second anniversary, my husband and I had just moved back to New York City, to the West Village. We decided to feast on some of the best beef available – from the Old Homestead Restaurant and Slaughterhouse on the West Side. Upon arrival, the thick cuts of the finest beef on other tables made me salivate in eager anticipation – until I saw some incredible lobsters. We each at huge, yet tender, lobsters for our best anniversary dinner ever!

    Just the thought of Miane lobster takes be back to when I was a kid growing up in Cambridge. We ate Maine lobster all of the time. My dad would bring them home and let them crawl on the floor. My sisters and brother and I would chase them around and torment them and then, when the water was boiled my dad would reach down and grab them and plunk our squirming friends into the water.

    I remember one summer we spent on Moosehead lake in Maine. We sat outside and ate lobster dipped in melted garlic butter until I think my sides were ready to burst.

    For me, lobster brings back happy memories of life in New England.

    A few years ago I visited friends in Maine and was totally amazed at the number of restaurants, stands, sandwich shops (and even McDonalds) who served fresh Maine lobster in every form possible. My favorite was deep fried lobster…I would never have guessed it would be as out of this world as it was!!! Love it, love it, love it!!

    The time that I remember most about eating lobster was when I was on vacation on the East Coast and had a McLobster – yes you heard it right – I ate lobster at McDonalds! It was surprisingly good even. Whenever I tell people that here in the West they don’t believe it. But I swear – it’s 100% true.

    In October of 2003, I traveled to Cape Cod to spend a few days with a friend from college as she was getting married at Nantucket lighthouse.

    We knew we would be returning to the large house where we are all staying, and when we got there, the oven was filled with baking lobsters!

    The bride had arranged for a nearby fishmonger to bring the lobsters over and pop them into a timed oven so they would be ready when we returned.

    We had the most delightful evening enjoying the newly married couple and the delightful lobsters that made the meal and the night such a wonderful memory!

    My funniest lobster story happened when I was on my honeymoon with my first husband. He was from Maine so he knew all about lobster. He took me to a beautiful restaurant and we went out to where you could choose your own lobster for dinner. He started chasing me with a huge lobster and I’m running and screaming in front of the huge glass windows where all of the dinner guests are seated. We were the evening’s entertainment. I didn’t realize there were plugs in the claws so that they couldn’t really pinch me. In spite of that, I’ve loved lobster ever since!

    What I like most about lobster is the taste. It has a flavor like nothing else.

    The next thing I love about Lobster is the memories it brings back for me. Memories of a simpler time when I was a kid. I grew up in New Hampshire and my uncle worked at the Portsmouth Navy Base which is located partially in NH and partially in Maine. Growing up every other Friday was Lobster night. We would go over to my Grandmother’s straight from school and wait for my uncle to get home from work. I can still picture him walking in the door with those heavy wax coated paper bags. He would stop on his way home down at the docks and hand pick the best looking Main Lobsters from that days catch.

    This really happened!

    Our call center was closed as a result of terrorist threats in the country. Some nights in the hope of starting regular night shifts the office transportation would take us to the center. Us CSRs would while away the night talking, joking, suggesting anything to keep us alert the whole night. AND THEN HE ASKED ME IF I LIKED LOBSTERs! I nearly fell off the cubicle table where I had perched myself. Boy!! That was equal to the word ‘I LOVE YOU’!

    I do!

    I was such a picky eater when I was a kid. On a trip to Maine my parents were quite hestitant in allowing me to order a lobster dinner…I never finished anything. After having a taste of my father;s lobster…I LOVED IT! The next time we dined my parents relented and allowed me to have a whole Maine lobster….I ate every last tiny morsel…my parents were stunned. My love affair with lobster had been set in stone. There is nothing like it! To me Maine lobster is something that dreams are made of….and a meal that I will always finish…enjoying every last bite.

    True story…
    We were sitting in an upscale, crowded restaurant, myself, first wife, two daughters, my younger daughter’s Godfather and his girlfriend. When the meal was served the waitress placed a tray of 3 large Maine lobsters in front of my daughter’s Godfather.
    She had never seen lobster before(she was four years old) and to get a better view she stood on her chair and everyone chuckled at her amazement. Suddenly this innocent girl pointed to the tray and proudly proclaimed for all diners to hear: “Look, Uncle Dave has crabs!”. The entire restaurant erupted into laughter and applause. To this day my daughter still gets embarrassed when this story is retold.

    I was born and brought up on the east coast. I have always loved lobster and we ate it on a regular basis. Well….I then moved to the west coast and then moved inland where there are no lobsters except for what you buy in a grocery store. This is the first time I have been landlocked. I love the people here and they all tell me they love lobster so….one day a local decided to buy 3 live lobsters, one for himself, one for me and one for my boyfriend. He doesn’t know a thing about cooking lobster. I get out a huge pot and get the water boiled, then proceed to place the live lobster in the boiling water. The look on his face was priceless. He wouldn’t think of putting a live cow on the barbie to get a steak so why did I place a live lobster in a pot of boiling water? The lobsters were cooked. I get out the hammer and a butcher knife and have mine ready to eat in moments. Meanwhile he is looking his up and down trying to decide the best way to start eating. I am not much of a story teller but I can tell ya this much, Its a riot watching someone that has always been landlocked, saying how much they love lobster and then watching them for the first time try to crack open their lobster just to get a taste of the delicacy!

    My favorite Maine lobster memory is from my first trip to Maine. We were camping near Bar Harbor and it was time to head back to Georgia. We got 20 minutes out of Bar Harbor and decided that we had to go back for one last lobster, turned around and arrived at the dock at 10:30 A. M. We had lobster for breakfast that day and then turned back around and started our drive home for the second time. YUMMMMY!!!

    When our daughter was about 7, we took her to a fancy restaurant in Honolulu. She ordered lobster. In a few minutes the waiter brought out a lobster on a silver platter. She looked at it for a few seconds then suddently, this complete look of shock took over when she realized the lobster was alive and moving! When they brought it back to the table once it was cooked, she kept poking at it just to make sure it wasn’t going to move again. She’s a teen now and we still laugh about that! By the way, she’s a big fan of shrimp now!

    When I was growing up, we had a cookout once with some lobster as the main dish. My mother wanted me to help out more than I was, and thought I was being lazy when I kept just laying down in the hammock instead of helping. When it came time to eat, I had one lobster, put my dish away, and went back to the hammock. My mother realized that I really wasn’t feeling well at that point, because other than situations where I was limited to 1 lobster (weddings, restaurants and such) I think that that is the only time I haven’t gone for a second or third one.

    I was born and raised on the West Coast of the U.S. , but I was lucky enough to encounter fresh main lobster on some business trips where the locals treated me to a boil. 🙂 No they didn’t boil me … Maybe they should have 🙂

    I did enjoy the boil as it involved quite a bit of seafood cooked in vast pots and somewhat unceremoniously dumped on large tables outside. I mean dumped. Seafood, vegetables and all. Watching dignified people turn into kids gulping down the delectable food was quite fun. Not sure if I was supposed to wear a deep sea diver suit… 🙂 I did have quite a bit of fun plunging into the aroma laden table. The Maine lobster was a bit more scarce than the rest of seafood extravaganza.. So it was prepared separately and dolled out in small portions. The whole experience was memorable not only for the tastes, but the fun that all shared in this feast.

    I think its a great idea on many levels for this contest. So I certainly posted the details over here…. 🙂

    I love Maine lobster. I am so happy that I found this web site. I can now pass it on to all my friends. The only way to eat a Maine lobster is with lots of melted butter. When I bite into the lobster all the melted butter runs everywhere. Especially down my face. What a great treat Maine lobster use to be. However, now with the website we can order any time we like. So it doesn’t have to be just a treat anymore it can be all the time. Thank you Maine lobster for all you do to keep us happy.

    In 1961 My mother who lived in Texas came to visit with me when I was stationed at the Naval hospital in Chelsea MA. I took her to the Maine Coast so she could eat a “fresh” lobster for the first time in her life. It was something she remembered for the rest of her life and spoke of anytime she was ever asked about the trip or her favorite seafood.

    I’ve always loved Lobster. Unfortunately I didn’t know until I was like 18 when I finally got my lobster meal.

    See, my parents used to love getting and cooking lobster, or ordering at a restaurant but us “kids” were never allowed to get it. In fact, many of the times when our parents got to feast on lobster at home, we had “hotdog” night for the kids >:(. This continued all through my teenage years and although I tried crab legs and of course shrimp (which I also love both of) it wasn’t until my 18th birthday when they surprised me with a great lobster mean. And man was it great lol. Since then and since I have “grown up” I like to treat myself as often as I can but still don’t get enough lobster.

    I’d love to win the gift card so I can give a shot of preparing it myself and it’s been long enough that it’s time for more lobster :).

    I made a post on my blog as well about the contest 🙂

    How could you not love Maine Lobster, I am an Aussie and been eating Lobster since I moved over here ten years ago, the only way to eat it is sliding the meat through white vinegar to get the tart then sweetness in your palate, I think melted butter kills some of the flavour, I can just taste it now with vinegar, nothing better…

    As a kid we’d vacation in Haverhill,Mass.My great grandfather would take us out to Salisbury Beach, NH to shop for live “lobstas” on the wharf.I’m not sure if he conned just me or also my geography-savy big brother with tales that those dinners were the “Maine lobstas that didn’t mind their parents and ran away from home.”

    I’m a longtime lobster lover, but I had never actually tasted the “REAL THING” until a few years ago. My husband hales from Manchester, New Hampshire, and he had enjoyed this delicacy all of his life. He has the most gracious family that I’ve ever known, and his brother was kind enough to have live Maine lobster sent to my home in Tennessee, just because I had never had REAL lobster. I had always loved the sweet, succulent taste of lobster, but after I tasted MAINE lobster, what I had always loved, I now CRAVE! As a matter of fact, I was craving lobster tonight, and ALMOST stopped at the grocery store to purchase some earlier this evening. However, I KNEW that only MAINE LOBSTER would satisfy me now,so I decided to google Maine lobster to find a company that would ship to me,and that is how I discovered this website. So now I am a bit of a “LOBSTER SNOB”, I suppose. But, if I have to be PICKY about something, I can’t imagine ANYTHING better than insisting on MAINE LOBSTER-the “REAL” THING!!! ^_^
