To buy lobsters worthy for your money:

* do not buy them little fellas; since they are nothing but shell and only for show

* do not buy the too big Maine lobster either; since they are too chewy and too thick shell (heavy for nothing)

* Spiny lobsters of the Pacific, especially those come from Australia are very tasty, full of flesh and sweet.

Atlantic lobsters, Maine's, are best around 2lbs for the money;

but the best spiny lobsters, Pacific's, are best around 4 - 5 lbs.

(since you do not eat lobsters every day, so when you do, do it right for the pleasure and the dollar value).
