Meet the Super Bowl Box

Share:

My sister Asa and my best friend Alex met at a Super Bowl party in my tiny apartment when I was in grad school. Ever since then (Alex is now my brother-in-law) the Super Bowl has held a bit of extra meaning for our family. We don’t miss it. And as you may have guessed, food plays a central role.

Yeah, it’s the end of an era here in Boston. But let’s join (most of) the rest of the country and cheer even without a team in the game. If you’re anything like me you’re looking to celebrate anything and everything right now (we had a Devil’s Food Cake with artificially-flavored orange frosting at my house on Wednesday to celebrate the end of the Trump nightmare).

Whether the big game is a silent, serious event at your house, or something boisterous, or unimportant, or if you simply want a Netflix weekend – we’re here to do all the heavy lifting/seasoning/sourcing so you can focus on your family and friends. Who knows, maybe Super Bowl LV will spark some new traditions of your own?

SUPER BOWL BOX MENU
choose 2,4,6,8,10 people

Coin Toss
– Bubbly Buffalo cauliflower cheese dip with pita points
– Silky hummus with dipping winter veggies
– Green garlic bread with Berkshire Mountain ciabatta

First Down
– Salt-crusted jacket potatoes with all the fixings
– 3 Bean Chili with beans grown by our friend Charley Baer
– Plimoth cornbread with scallions and cheddar, slide it into the oven and bake

Halftime 
– Moroccan-inspired nachos you pile high—we give you all the components.
– Our favorite sourdough Margherita pizza (thank you Richard!) 
– The Sloppy Chris (coming of the Food Dev vault: adorably messy lentil sliders with a BBQ style Joe sauce). 

Overtime
– For dessert, churros and warm chocolate sauce, a seasonal tradition in Miami where the game is being played. We’ve done all the frying, you’ll just gently heat the chocolate-cinnamon sauce. “These are awesome,” the usually-quiet Chris says.

Tailgate Box (serves 4)
We love that our box makes veggies absolutely craveable, but for that meaty taste, we recommend adding one or more of these boxes which include:
– Build-your-own Beyond sausage hoagies with seared peppers, onions, marinara
– Greek-style Impossible meatballs with dill labneh

Trillium Beer and Katalyst Kombucha!
A rare, exclusive chance to get a 12-pack of Trillium beer on your front porch!!! Plus our favorite dry-hopped and ginger kombucha (take a break from the beer or blow the minds of your dry-January-keeping guests).

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!)
