Lobster Roll Fails: Crimes Against One Of Our Favorite Sandwiches (PHOTOS)


We used to think there was no such thing as a bad lobster roll. Call us naive, call us sheltered, we truly believed that we were all on the same page about this. As it happens, we were wrong. Very, very wrong.

We love lobster rolls, so we feel pretty intent on protecting their honor. To be perfectly fair, none of you appear to be microwaving lobster rolls, you are not yet able to purchase a frozen version (knock on wood), and thus far, no vegan substitutes have popped up. With that being said, there are still some epic lobster roll fails out there. We're awfully wound-up about this, mostly because lobster rolls are so simple! Three, maybe four ingredients maximum. But time and time again, we try to alter the formula. A different bread. Extra mayo. TOMATOES.

Look, we're going to take a few deep breaths and try to calm down, while you click through this slideshow of these mind-bending lobster roll fails. Friends do not let friends eat bad lobster rolls, guys.
