Claws and tails have been replaced by gummies in Greenwich Village.

Stieber's Sweet Shoppe, purveyor of homemade fudge topped ice cream has yet another summer-appropriate sweet treat: candy lobster rolls!

Each candy lobster roll is made with a homemade Rice Krispy treat as a bun, lined with not-Mayo-like white frosting and coconut flakes and topped with lucious, bright red gummy lobsters.

It's more like a fruit roll-up than a lobster roll, but still makes for a refreshing summer treat!

The candy-seafood combination doesn't have Cronut-like lines, but you'll want to get your claws on one of these small-batch, hand-made treats.

Find NYC's only candy lobster roll for not-lobster prices, $5 each, at Stieber's Sweet Shoppe, 195 Bleecker St. Must be ordered in advance at or 646-439-7903.
