Bologna is not a meat many people reach for at the deli counter after the age of 12. But, in an odd twist of economic fate soft shell lobster is now cheaper the meat mixture known as Bologna! In some areas, people are paying $3.79 per pound for soft shell lobster.
It turns out, Canadians have found a bigger supply of lobster this year. The folks in Maine have not been able to sell the crustacean as easily. You know how supply and demand works. But, don’t get too excited. I’m guessing restaurants won’t be lowering the price on the menu. Oddly enough, if you set a plate of lobster and a plate of Bologna in front of my two kids, they would both choose bologna.
My take: Give me some drawn butter and a bib baby! Let’s get some lobster!
