It seems McDonald’s move to bring lobster rolls back to the menu last year was successful, as the chain says it’ll again offer the seafood menu item at select New England locations this summer.

Starting June 20, certain stores in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and the Albany, N.Y., area, will offer the $8.99 rolls through mid-August, the company announced.

They’re made with North Atlantic lobster meat, tossed in mayo, and layered with lettuce on a toasted roll. At 290 calories, they’re also lower in calories than say, a Big Mac, which clocks in at 530 calories.

McDonald’s brought lobster rolls back to the menu last summer, marking the first time they were offered in a decade.

“The return of the Lobster Roll is exciting for McDonald’s because it was such a hit with our customers last summer,” said Suzanne Pingeton, McDonald’s Marketing Director for the Boston Region in a press release.
