Meet the Snowed-In Box ❄️

Share:

The Snowed In Box magically appears on your doorstep on a Thursday of your choosing, and lasts you the whole weekend.

It’s perfect whether you are venturing out to a cabin, exploring the Massachusetts slopes, or getting snowed in at home with your family. With many of us postponing winter travel until this whole Omicron thing blows over, or opting for wintery escapes closer to home (have you been to these spots yet?) this box will generously fill your fridge and support our favorite wintery MA farmers when the snow covers their fields.

 This box has enough food to take care of ALL your meals for a whole weekend—that means 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners, 2 snacks, 2 desserts, 2 hot beverages for each person.

No work for you, no coffee maker needed, no running out to the store or ski lodge. Just a stove, a knife, basic pots and pans, and a fridge to store the admittedly big box. If you’re trying out winter camping, you can even store the box in a snowdrift (joking…or am I?) 

Available in small (feeds 2-3 people) or large (feeds 4-6 people). 

You’ll need lots of energy whether you’re skiing or making snow angels in the backyard, so for breakfast turn to Tunisian breakfast bowls in spiced tomato sauce with perfect soft-cooked eggs (think shakshuka), and a lavishspread of assorted bagels from Goldilox with all the fixings – house-made carrot lox, capers, whipped cashew cream cheese, herbed cream cheese, and tomatoes.

Later on in the weekend, warm up our stick-to-your-ribs Winter Vegetable Stew featuring PEI potatoes, split peas, and roots from Michael Docter’s frostbitten fields. Chris is making pans of his now-famous Mac & Cheese with a proper Mornay sauce enriched by our favorite Grafton cheddar. Richard Bourdon is sending us Berkshire Mountain Bakery Pizza made with long-fermented sourdough that is tastier, better for you, and more filling than your average ‘za. The Winter Farm Salads are coming with Hadley roots, just-picked microgreens and creamy turmeric dressing. And our Potato Cheddar Leek Souptastes decadent by the fire with a hunk of ciabatta and garlic herb butter. Yum.

And since the box is all about exploring the winter wonderland, Jane and I ensured that we’re tucking in a kit to make something fluffy and white: Maple Fluffernutter Sandwiches with Clover-made marshmallow fluff (remember Clementine’s recipe from quarantine year 1?), Teddie peanut butter, and house pita. 

One of the best parts about winter is hot drinks. Our Hot Honey Ginger drink is back for this box only! This was a staff favorite from frosty days on the food truck, and is made with fresh ginger and Champlain Valley Apiaries honey. Perfect for fending off any tickles in the throat caused by the heat being on. Adults: remember to pack a thermos when you head out into the snow; because we’ve got coffee covered with Tandem Roaster’s instant coffee packets. Yummy with a Maine Grains brownie or one of Jason’s spice cakes.

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!)
