Club member news digest: Friday Oct 9



  • We quietly turned on the Meal Club a couple weeks ago, and haven’t promoted or marketed about it just yet, but I’m so happy to share that we already have 35 club members!! If you’re loving your experience so far please feel free to share with your friends!


  • Ann of Autumn Hills Orchard just dropped off some freshly picked Cortlands which you’ll see in apple compote (with dessert and breakfast), and in sodas. We are going through our last few crates of local peaches, and then will be transitioning to these amazing apples.
  • Paw paws are here! They are a little too small for our dessert paw paw custard this year but you’ll see them in Paw Paw Soda at the restaurants. And for the first time ever we are selling whole, fresh paw paws as part of the Meal Box program.
  • For any long-time lovers of the Impossible Sausage Egg and Cheese breakfast sandwich, you may have noticed a slight change in the sausage patty recently. We’ve switched to a pre-made Impossible Breakfast Sausage patty for this sandwich – after a bunch of taste tests, we concluded that not only was it texturally a better experience in the sandwich, it also holds up better structurally when cooked! The new sausage is more like a traditional breakfast sausage – juicy, sweet and lots of black pepper. 
  • Chris (our VP of Food) is working on making sure we’ll have enough kosher smoked cheddar for our upcoming blockbuster seasonal sandwich, the Brussels Sprout! Stay tuned – I’ll try to let you know as soon as we know when we’re going to release this sandwich (my personal favorite).


  • Our Mini Sticky Bun gift with Chef Joanne Chang and the team at Flour Bakery has been a huge hit! We’re going to officially announce this tomorrow, but just so you all know first – Joanne and Ayr agreed to extend this gift by an extra week so that more folks get a chance to try the mini stickies 🙂
  • Starting Monday, we’re teaming up with Union Square Donuts to sell a box of 1/2 dozen assorted donuts as an add-on for our Meal Box menu. We’ll officially announce this next week and the first day you’ll be able to get a box of donuts picked up/delivered from Clover is Thursday Oct 15.

The Pizza Friday Box gave us an idea: calzones! Ayr has been making these at his house and texting us photos. They’re big and saucy and so good. Basically a stuffed pizza/turnover situation with origins in 17th century Naples.

As you might know, we love feedback. Survey Day is a tradition that harkens back to the first days of the food truck, over 10 years ago. If you got a card in line today at Clover, or if you ordered on the app today, click here to take the survey. Huge thanks for helping us improve.

Thanks all who joined for the first public food dev meeting after Covid. Phil did a great job pulling it all together. If you’re a customer, farmer, vendor (or Clover staff member) reading this, you are invited to Food Dev! These happen Thursday afternoons at the HUB and they’re where all new food ideas are born. Just make sure to sign up – spots are limited.

House-made carrot lox, hearty vegetable stews with bread and pickles, Tunisian breakfast bowls, a pizza party kit, and a dream of snow, all in one box. Our Snowed In Box is back. This was Greg’s idea back in 2020. He thought it would be cool to make a box that was equally whether eaten after snowboarding or cozied up on the couch watching a movie.

We’ve been getting a lot of requests for the ability to gift a friend Clover Meal Boxes. After a lot of late night tech sessions, we have a way to do this! Yay! I’ve been looking and seeing a few of you have started to discover this feature and are starting to gift away. So cool to see.

If you’re a weekly meal box subscriber, you may have noticed way fewer plastic containers in your deliveries recently.When we started the program, we were in the pandemic, new to this whole home delivery thing, and a big concern was making sure that nothing spilled inside the boxes. So we relied on post-consumer recycled containers (aka plastic deli containers) for a lot of the items.

We’ve been getting back into the merch game. First up: squash shirts. I thought it would be fun to celebrate the diversity of the squash world. Although butternut is probably the squash you see most in the grocery store, there are actually over 100 types of squash, all with their own patterns, colors, and textures.

The Bridgewater is back!! This is probably the most requested sandwich on our menu. Michelle who runs our social media says she reliably gets one message per week asking when it will return. In 2015, Paul and Bryan came up with this sandwich as an homage to the jalapeño poppers at The Charlie Horse, a now-closed tavern in their hometown of Bridgewater, MA.

I love the holidays. I love the lights, I love the traditions, I love ornaments and pine needles all over the floor.  I love the movies (“Muppet Christmas Carol”) and the books (“A Child’s Christmas in Wales.”) I love the good songs, I love the schlocky songs (if you’ve never heard “Suzy Snowflake” or “Dominic the Donkey”, stop reading right now and click through.)

It was inevitable. Our meal box program had to find its way into restaurants at some point. A bunch of you have been asking if we can sell “on demand” meal boxes in our restaurants – for those times when you have last-minute dinner guests or forgot to subscribe by the deadline. So we’ve been easing into the process of combining one part of Clover with another.

Brussels Sprouts are extra sweet this time of year, and King Brussels, in his infinite wisdom, has cooked up a Brussels Week in our meal boxes. Every single subscription box will contain a recipe inspired by brussels! This is the first time we’ve explored a seasonal theme across our entire lineup and we’re excited to dive in.

This was Jane’s last week at Clover. We’re wishing her the best in her next steps (but also not so secretly hoping she comes back!)
