New Adventure meal kits


You may have tried our Weekend Adventure Box. Fireside s’mores, cornbread and chili and hot dogs. Maybe you’ve taken it bike-camping like one of our customers (so cool). Or maybe you’ve used it to stay inside and avoid ordering pizza on one of these gray and cloudy days we’ve been having.

The Weekend Adventure Box has been so popular that it’s inspired a fleet of kits! This new Adventure Category will take you everywhere you need to go this summer. They’re easy to pop in the trunk of the car (easy on the wallet too). They’re destined for craggy shorelines and docks, grass under bare feet, reunions with friends and family, and most importantly NOT heating up your kitchen on days when we return to muggy and 90-degree humidity.

Everything in the new Weekend Adventure category will be available for pickup at 1075 Cambridge St, or home delivery to the Greater Boston Area on Thursdays and Fridays (and to the Cape on Fridays!) Plus delivery is free for orders over $60!

So ask yourself, when 5pm on Friday rolls around, are you beach, brunch, picnic or backyard?

The Beach Kit
You arrive at the beach and unpack tofu egg salad sandwiches with crisp pickles and lettuce. You dip fresh local berries in house vanilla sugar. While reading and watching the surfers do their thing, you’re dipping veggie chips into silky hummus. But beware of the seagulls! They love Clover potato salad. Kit includes compostable cutlery and our staff’s list of favorite New England beaches. 

The Brunch Kit
People are coming over Sunday! You’re excited to see everyone again after a long winter of quarantine, but what will you make? Brunch Kit to the rescue! The carrot lox Chris has become famous for, plus Forge bagels, cashew cream cheese, capers, and tomatoes; scoop-and-bake blueberry muffins; everything you need to make granola parfaits with seasonal fruit (right now rhubarb, fingers crossed for peaches soon); and orange juice for making mimosas. Just ask your friends to pick up a dry sparkling wine and you’re all set! Also includes some bonus recipes for brunch hosting.

The Backyard Kit
You’ve been invited to the neighbor’s for a grill-out. But what to bring? The Backyard Kit has the beginnings of a Mediterranean meal—our famous marinated veg, a trio of spreads, and just-baked pita. The balsamic-marinated mushrooms and lemon-marinated summer veggies are ready to hit the grill (or the oven, or griddle). Pair them with 3 of our most popular spreads: romesco, silky hummus, and sunflower seed pesto, plus Clover pita, and recipe ideas for turning this kit into a meal for a crowd. 

The Picnic Kit 
When it’s time for that big declaration, nothing says “I love you” like Clover romesco. A romantic date for two starts with spreads and pita, continues with no-cook farm bowls with seasonal produce, and ends with coconut pecan blondies and a seasonal soda that you’ll mix right at the picnic. We’ll send everything you need, including a list of unusual places to picnic around town (including a bridge made of flowers). You just bring the ice, the picnic blanket, and some courage.  

PS: Changes are happening in our Build Your Own menu too! Breakfast items are now available a-la-carte (hello Classic Breakfast Sandwich!) and we’ve also got a new Weeknight Favorites Box

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!)
