Imperfect’s Spring Grocery Preview

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

At last, the sun is sticking around a little longer, and tasty things like spring onions and asparagus are peeking their little heads out of the ground to say, “What’s up? It’s been a minute!” So hang in there while winter has its last hurrah. Spring is just around the corner, and with it comes seasonal surprises, tasty treats for furry friends, and new sustainable items for your home. 

Springtime Sweets

salty and sweet odds and ends bark

Coming soon, we’ll have Yogurt Covered Pretzels coated in Leftover Sprinkles, Wonky Chocolate Bars that went unwanted because they’re only somewhat rectangular, and Salty & Sweet Odds & Ends Bark. This bark is already a big hit with the Imperfect team – its milk chocolate meets leftover peanuts, cookies, potato chips, and pretzels for one delicious and indulgent mouthful. But if you’re in the mood for something lighter, we’ll also have Eggs for Easter from Tony’s Chocolonely. Or wait, those are chocolate too. We meant lighter on your conscience because all their chocolate is ethically sourced and crafted. 

Remember Salad?

Vaguely. It’s something to do with kale, right? Lettuce jog your memory because soon we’ll have a variety of lunch-ready salad kits like Lemony Cashew Caesar, Toasty Sesame Ginger, and Nutty Pesto. Not only are these salads full of fresh veggies, lots of crunchy bits, and dressed to impress — they also take a bite out of food waste. That’s because they’re packed with offbeat veggies like golden beets and a nutritious base that incorporates leaves, stems, and roots. 

Springing Up Out of the Ground

strawberry season

Contrary to what the grocery store may suggest, strawberry season is not year-round. But it is just around the corner, and soon our somewhat small but extra sweet strawberries will be popping up out of the ground quicker than we can pop them into our mouths. But until they arrive, we’ll have lots of goodies to distract you, like slightly discolored but very refreshing grapefruit, spicy Tokyo turnips, and domestically grown dragon fruit. We’ll also have buttery and inconsistently-sized artichokes straight out of a 90s dinner party and a flavorful selection of spring onions, spring garlic, and spring shallots just in time for… hmm can’t remember.

ramps

Ramp Season Ramps Up 

Depending on what part of the country you’re from, you’ll either be very confused or very excited by the next sentence. We’ll have consciously harvested ramps arriving soon! East Coasters and Midwesterners might know this veg well, as ramps grow quite rampantly there in the spring. If you’re not familiar, ramps are a wild cousin of onions indigenous to North America that enthusiasts across the country forage for each spring. They resemble green onions, taste like a savory and sophisticated hybrid of leeks and garlic, and are prized by chefs and foodies for their deliciously unique flavor. 

Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking

Saved Stems bouquet

Get a whiff of Saved Stems, our new line of sustainable and one-of-a-kind floral arrangements! The floral industry has super strict regulations about things like “stem-length” and “thorniness.” And since nature has a mind of its own, a flower farmer might get an unexpected rain and suddenly be flushed with more flowers than they can sell. That’s where Saved Stems come in. It’s a safe space for surplus sprays and stems that didn’t quite make the cut. 

Pawsitively Tasty Upcycled Treats

lady bug

Has your cat been plotting its great escape ever since you lost the laser pointer? Soon you’ll be able to coax kitty back into your arms with Crunchy Cat Treats from Shameless Pets in flavors like “Catnip and Chill” and “More Lobster Cheese.” And we can’t have pup feeling jealous. We’ll have soft-baked biscuits, dental sticks, and jerky bites for your doggo to drool over. All treats are healthy, pet-approved, and incorporate upcycled ingredients like pumpkin and apple. A big round of a-paws for that. 

Woof! There’s so much to look forward to this spring at Imperfect.

    You guys are amazing.
    I do not like to go to a regular grocery store since Covid- 19 so this way we get all of our needs taken care and we stay healthy and rather well fed.
    We also have extra food to give away.
    Our delivery is Wednesday and we all enjoy opening up the box or boxes of goodies.
    Thank you.

      Since our boxes are curbside recyclable, we don’t take them back for re-use but under normal circumstances we do takeback the gel packs and liners! We had to pause this program due to current health concerns, but have just recently been able to start back up a pilot version of our gel pack return program in San Francisco and Portland. Until we get all the wrinkles ironed out those are the only locations where this program is running.

The whole concept of using perfectly good food that would otherwise be chucked into the garbage makes me feel like I’m doing my small part toward helping the world heal. Besides, it’s left on my doorstep and I don’t have to go anywhere!

    Ramps! Flowers! New Human Treats! Abbondanza!!! Your chicken, meat and sausages are of superb quality. I, too, share fruits and veges with neighbors when I have too much and they appreciate it as well. Unfortunately, occasionally, lettuce is wilted or crushed and garlic is wet and therefore, doesn’t last long. Your recipes are great! I love what your Mission is and how you accomplish it – thank you so much. Cheers!

    I am so impressed with the food I’ve gotten from Imperfect! Everything has been great quality, and I really like being able to shop at my convenience and have it delivered. I’m an ‘old schooler’ who really does like to shop at grocery stores! But I’m so glad to be supporting the mission of Imperfect Foods!

    What does upcycled mean?

      Upcycling takes unused food and turns it into nutritious products. This provides more income to farmers, saves resources, and is better for the environment! 💚

    As a newer subscriber- I at first was skeptical about what grocery service would be like as I had not done it before. Your company so far has exceeded in every part of each order.

    I like that you:

    Let customers know when an item will not be delivered. Or sometimes you just “throw in” comparable items (which I order now anyway)

    Text me when the order is delivered so I know when to retrieve it for the fridge (I enjoy the routed service, just wish sometimes it was still at 10am instead of 2 or 3pm while I’m asleep from working overnight)

    Offer LOCAL products when available-this was an added perk that I had not known until searching the list. Great that I get to support local owners of food companies in my community! And that your company is based in SF : )

    Wish you

    Would keep items at a decent price

    More regular local milk choices (Lucerne, Berkeley Farms etc)

    I’ve had issues with super-fast spoilage too, but in general, love the concept of salvaging foods. One thing I do not love here is all the plastic (clamshells included). With the new salad kits, it looks like Imperfect Foods is straying from its earlier focus on reducing plastics. That, along with the rest of the carbon footprint involved with shipping, leaves me thinking twice about whether to continue with this love-the-concept service.
    All that said, I really appreciate Imperfect Foods for several reasons, including the delivery during these trying times, excellent customer service, and low-income considerations. Thanks for all the good you do, and keep looking for sustainable alternatives to plastic!

      We’re so sorry to hear that you’ve had some spoilage. We never want you paying for anything that you aren’t able to enjoy. Please send our customer care team a note if you haven’t already: bit.ly/385DIoA

      Also about the plastic clamshells, most of the items come packaged like that to us from the farmers. We will never remove the plastic packaging, but we’ll usually always disclaim it under the descriptions of the items during your customization windows, so you can avoid those plastic packaged items if you desire!

    I’m looking forward to the flowers, too, but I do have one concern. Will they be wrapped in a way that protects them from damage during shipping? The folks at the shipping company are not always gentle with these boxes, and the couple of times I’ve gotten asparagus, for example, it got kind of battered rattling around loose in the box with the other items. You can still use broken asparagus spears, as long as they are not totally crushed (the first batch was, and you graciously refunded my account for that item), but broken flowers? Not so much.

    Having said that, I am really enjoying my subscription. It hasn’t eliminated the need to shop elsewhere, but it has certainly cut down on those orders, which are now pretty much limited to either things you don’t carry or items that are so fragile and short-lived that I have sent from Whole Foods on the day I plan to use them. I’m especially fond of the orange and cranberry scones, and the pork chops are literally the best I have ever eaten. I also love the shimeji mushrooms, but haven’t seen them on offer for a few weeks. Are they seasonal?

    Can’t wait to try ramps. I’ve heard about them, but never seen them at any store before this. They sound delicious.

    Last question: Is there a way to add multiples to my recurring items list, like, for example, two bunches of green onions instead of just one?

    Thank you for being a wonderful company with an important mission!

      Thanks so much for the love! Our Saved Stems Flower Bouquets come wrapped in paper to protect them while they’re on their journey to you. 💐 Depending on how they’re grown, Shimeji mushrooms are seasonal to the fall which may be why you haven’t seen them in a bit. Hopefully we’ll have them back in stock soon!

      And to answer your last question, unfortunately our Recurring lists don’t have the option to add multiples of an item but we will pass this suggestion to our team! 🙌
