P.E.I sets the Lobster Roll World Record at 120 feet and 120 pounds of lobster meat!

It took 120 pounds of lobster meat, 13 kilograms of dough and about 180 volunteers, but P.E.I. is now the record holder of the world’s largest lobster roll. The exact length: 36.5 metres. That’s 120 feet long — longer than the length of a basketball court. Take that, New Brunswick. “They say it takes a village to raise a child. Well, I think it takes more than that to build a lobster roll,” said Melanie Giffin of the PEI Fishermen’s Association. “With the amount of work that went into it, there was no way we could let it fail.” The bun for the lobster roll was baked in a conveyor oven at the Culinary Institute of Canada from dough donated by the Water Street Bakery and Deli in Summerside. About 60 fishermen and their wives — accompanied by a police escort — paraded the massive roll 1.7 kilometres to the PEI International Shellfish Festival at the Charlottetown Event Grounds.
