New England Provisions Company BBB Business Review
BBB® A+ Rating

Accepted in Store

The New England Provisions Company ships only Hard Shell Lobsters that have not shed their shells. These lobsters are full of firm meat. They are not watery or spongy. They meat will not shrink after cooking. This is crucial to having a sucessful party where all of the lobsters are alive and cook up perfectly. You get twice the amount of meat from a hard shelled lobster.

Special Advisory Information: Summer, New Shell, Soft Lobsters caused by shedding their shell are being marketed and shipped through out the US. It's that time of year. The lobsters that shed are by no means a bargain. Often they cook up mushy and the lobster is a total loss dissapointing both the guest and the host. The marketing of these lobsters as being Grade A New Shell is incorrect. They are actually Grade C to B. If you can easily crack the claws open by hand or with a small nut cracker they are not hard shell lobsters.

If you select a Future Delivery date that is more than 2 weeks out the prices per lb and delivery may not be viable for the shiping date. You will be contacted about changes to your order before shipping.
