Info from Eastern Standard Provisions

Eastern Standard Provisions delivers uncompromising quality with hand-crafted artisanal soft pretzels and artfully blended salts.

Our Boston-based team, with deep roots throughout New England, is fiercely passionate in our pursuit of making the best soft pretzels on the planet. This stemmed from our mutual love for pretzels, and a realization that finding one on the market that lived up to our expectations was nearly impossible. So, we decided to make it ourselves.

Under the guidance of our chief product officer and renowned baker, Lauren Moran, we started on our journey. After months of tasting, tweaking and adjusting, we finally perfected our one-of-a-kind gourmet soft pretzel.

Like any artisanal product, it takes time, effort and unwavering commitment. We landed on something we’re truly proud of: a pretzel with the airy qualities of a brioche on the inside and a traditional Bavarian-style crust on the outside. We promise you that our pretzels will have you coming back for seconds and thirds.

My family has always been connected to the land. Growing up in a Cuban-American household, our kitchen was always filled with fresh avocados, mangos, yuca, and other fruits with names that to this day, I still have trouble pronouncing.

My father is a tropical produce entrepreneur that for over 35 years has been sourcing exotic and tropical produce from Florida, the Caribbean, Central and South America to all corners of the United States.

Because of our family’s business, I was raised visiting farms in the Caribbean, Central, and South America. One of my first memories, was as a young girl in the mountains of Ecuador. I was holding my Dad’s hand as I saw a pack of mules with large sacks draped over their sides, guided down a mountain by a farmer. They were carrying a load of a local root, known as malanga. Covered in fresh dirt, the root was brown with thread-like hairs on the outside. The proud farmer approached us and said, “it doesn’t get any fresher than this!” as he then broke the root in half with a crisp snap. Ugly-looking on the outside, the inside was pristine and white as snow. My Dad smiled, examined the freshness and passed it to me. At the time, I had no idea what this strange root was, but seeing my father light up and how proud the farmer was, I knew it had to be something special.

I have now started a family of my own. As a Cuban-American mother of 3, married to a Costa Rican, whose mother is from El Salvador and father is from Nicaragua, my family is as diverse as my experience.

As I’ve travelled the country, I’ve learned just how hard it can be to find and enjoy fresh tropical produce, that’s why I decided to start Tropical Fruit Box. It’s my hope that this produce can nourish and bring your family together just as it has mine.

So, if you like to bake you own treats, these are awesome.  They have come in so handy for me.  As some of you may know, we had to downsize almost over night (within a week) and went from a large 5 bedroom 4 bathroom home with a huge kitchen, to a very small rental with a little kitchen with extremely limited cabinet space. The Elbee Home 8-Piece Stack ‘n Store Baking Set is truly compact, and they are great quality.
