I know my 7-mile-away Market Basket has been running them for $3.99 a pound for about three weeks because I shop there every week. Besides, we've already had our once a year and that's enough fix.
Trust me Kayelle, when you live somewhere where you can buy them cheap for a while each summer the bloom can come off the rose. I used to crave them when we lived in OH; not so much now. Besides, each $1.99 a pound gross ends up being about $12.00 a pound usable meat. Took me an hour to completely clean three of them a couple weeks back - all for 1/2 pound of meat. *sigh* For that money I prefer scallops for $9.99 and no real effort.
Yep. Stop and Shop went to $2.99 because of Market Basket's 3.99 deal.
And now some Stop and Shop's have gone down to $1.99.
And not all soft shells. Quite a deal !!
Lobster on my menu this weekend... Again.
