Lobster rolls are back at McDonald’s this summer due to popular demand, the company announced this week.

Beginning June 20, 600 locations throughout New England and upstate New York will be selling the crustacean sandwich, which is “freshly prepared and made with 100 percent North Atlantic lobster meat lightly tossed with mayonnaise in a stainless steel bowl, layered on crisp leaf and shredded lettuce and served chilled on a home-style toasted roll.”

Priced at $8.99, this year’s lobster hoagie is a dollar more than it was last year.  For those watching their figure, the lobster roll comes in at a slim 290 calories, despite the mayonnaise.

It will be available through mid-August at participating restaurants in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut and New York.
