The Churros are Landing!

Share:

Did you hear we made churros for our Super Bowl Meal Box? Chris purchased a churro maker and perfected a chocolate cinnamon sauce. The team squeezed and fried and packed a lot of dough.

Then all the boxes got delivered. The smell of cinnamon sugar faded from the HUB. The churro maker lay dormant. Soon the letters/texts/phone calls came in, begging us, ok, stating in no uncertain terms:

“BRING BACK THE CHURROS!!!”

And we are nothing if not listening to feedback. For a limited time only churros and chocolate are getting a second act, as the new dessert in our Snowed In Box and our Winter Seasonal Box! 

Store the churros in the fridge. When you’re ready to enjoy, heat them for 5 minutes in the oven while gently warming up the cinnamon chocolate sauce. If you have extra chocolate, Jane says to make chocolate steamed milk for your coffee. Greg says to dip warm pita in it like it’s Nutella. I think you should drizzle it over the top of your maple fluffernutter sandwiches (a favorite item in the Snowed In Box). 

SNOWED IN BOX EXTENDED INTO MARCH!

 2/18 ❄️ 2/25 ❄️ 3/4 ❄️ 3/11

As snow blankets the nation (even parts of the country that used to never see snow) we’ve been getting more and more requests to keep the Snowed In Box on for longer. Thanks for making your voices heard – we’re going to keep it on the menu until the beginning of Spring. If you’re a planner, you can now order for a month ahead! Remember, delivery is free within the I-495 loop; pickup at the HUB gets you $20 credit towards your next meal box purchase.

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.

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!)

Have you ordered your Thanksgiving Box yet? It’s already 50% sold out, so get your orders in this weekend if you can. This box comes with everything from stuffing to porcini-thyme gravy to mashed PEI potatoes to local cranberry sauce to bread to make leftover sandwiches. Most of the items can go from box to oven to table with very minimal prep, and we’ve made multiple sizes whether you’re dining solo or with a crowd.
