Acadia Favorites: Lobster Ice Cream

[I]f you’ve ever cracked into a lobster and thought, “Hmm, this would be better a la mode,” then Ben & Bill’s Chocolate Emporium in downtown Bar Harbor is your place.

The frozen facts:

3 pounds

Lobster meat in every 4 gallons of butter-flavored ice cream

410 gallons

Churned last year


For a small cone


For a two-gallon bucket (give or take, depending on lobster’s market price)

1 mile

Out-and-back distance of the nearby Bar Harbor Shore Path, on which you should probably jog after eating one
