TORONTO - Got a hankering for lobster but not the steep price tag?

McDonald's has you covered.

The fast-food giant is rolling out its very own lobster roll, known as the McLobster, as of Wednesday until June 30th, or while supplies last. It's priced at just $7.49 plus tax.

The McLobster is part of the restaurant chain's so-called Great Canadian Taste Adventure. There are four other "regional flavours" included in the summer promotion — maple and bacon poutine, a chocolate nanaimo sundae, cottage country chicken and the Western BBQ burger.

The McLobster has been offered in Atlantic Canada for more than 10 years. It's the first time it's been offered in restaurants across the country.

McDonald's says the McLobster features 100 per cent Canadian Atlantic lobster meat with celery, lemon-flavoured mayonnaise-style sauce and shredded lettuce on a bun.

"McDonald's is always about making connections with our guests and being part of the fabric of Canada," a company spokesperson said in an email.

"This campaign is a great way to celebrate diversity, the uniqueness of our country and regions, and of course, our proud Canadian sourcing story."
