cws, the whole lobster was 1/2 lb? that's pretty small, almost like a langoustine.
$2.99 is a really good price, though. i would need about 8 of them.
we have whole, live lobsters currently on sale for abot $6 a pound, about the same price that you're paying, come to think of it. and 6 oz. frozen tails for $4 or $5 each.
