McLobster Not Hitting McDonald's Nationwide

Twitter is abuzz with speculation that the McLobster might be hitting McDonald's nationwide.

But is it true?

Sadly, no. However, the product is certainly more than a legend -- it can be found occasionally among New England McDonald's locations.

The fast food giant felt it necessary to quell the misinformation on Twitter, but who knows, maybe after all the hype McDonald's might just get the idea to roll it out nationwide!
