 Lobsters Replace Turkey This Christmas
Recession hit Britons are turning to lobsters instead of turkeys this Christmas , say experts.

Bosses consider that it will be second only to the traditional Yuletide bird in the year's food and drink best-sellers.

Experts say recession-hit Brits are turning to luxury foods as a treat to cheer themselves up.

One of Britain's largest chain of supermarkets, Sainsbury's is offering a dressed lobster with king prawns for a wallet-busting 19 pounds for a two-person starter.

"Our customers said they at Christmas and lobster was seen as a luxury," the Daily Star quoted a company spokeswoman as saying.

Marks and Spencer is also selling the gourmet meal with a freshly cooked whole lobster priced at 15.99 pounds.

Figures have revealed that Brits are forking out almost 20 percent more for their Christmas meals this year, compared to 2010.
