Consider the Lobster

There’s never a bad time for lobster.

There’s also rarely an easy way to get lobster fresh.

Until now: get to boilin’ with Cousins Maine Lobster, online and open for delivery.

Interesting backstory: Cousins was started by (natch) two cousins who missed the lobster boils of their Maine childhood and took their passion to — why not — California.

Where they flew in the lobster, fresh, every day.

The effort was certainly noticed.

Cousins Maine LobsterThey won a few foodie awards. Got on Shark Tank. Won a few more awards. 

Emboldened, they’ve launched a new e-store that promises to deliver fresh lobster and other assorted seafood goodies from the ice-cold waters of Maine straight to your door, all in about 24 hours.

And it’s not just live lobster. Cousins offers lobster rolls, pot pies and mac ’n’ cheese (Editor’s note: un-f***ing-real), plus crab cakes, oysters, fully prepped surf & turf meals and Maine’s official dessert, the Whoopie Pie.

All with recipes sourced from the cousins’ mothers and grandmothers.

It’s a nice story.

And a better meal.
