As a wise man (aka Cousin Eddie of National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation) once said about a monthly membership, “Clark, that’s the gift that keeps on giving the whole year.” That’s why we’ve rounded up a dozen food of the month clubs so enticing, you’ll want to give them as a gift, then sign up yourself. Among the bunch, you’ll find sausage, snack and soup services, plus a jelly club that even Clark Griswold would be jazzed to join.
Fruit of the Month
An apple a day may keep the doctor away, but monthly exotic fruit keeps boredom at bay. The Fruit Company’s HarvestClub Exotica subscription features less-common produce, like dragon fruit, blood oranges and persimmons. Plus, you get to pick how many pieces you’d like… Champagne mangoes all around!
Snack of the Month
The first rule of snack club is: You do not talk about snack club… otherwise you’ll have to share! And with a Something Snacks subscription—which includes something salty, sweet, healthy and international in each box—you’ll want to keep everything for yourself.
Cheese of the Month
NYC’s legendary Murray’s Cheese made our list of best cheese shops in every state, and thanks to their Classic Cheese of the Month Club, you can enjoy their delectable dairy no matter where you live. You’ll get three or four cheeses, plus tasting notes and suggested wine pairings.
Doughnut of the Month
Get your glaze on regularly with Lady Sweet Cakes’ Doughnut of the Month Club. Each shipping includes a dozen of one flavor—and these aren’t your average dunkers. Pick from a selection that includes maple glazed gingerbread, strawberries and cream and brown sugar buttermilk banana.
Candy of the Month
A candy club sounds like a childhood fantasy come true… and it is! Retro Candy Club is a sugary subscription with a side of nostalgia. Pick your decade, like the ’60s (yes, Abba-Zaba!) or the ’80s (we see you, Big League Chew) and relive the good ol’ days.
Bread of the Month
San Francisco’s Boudin Bakery puts the art in artisanal with their 12-Month Seasonal Bread Club. You’ll get one or two sourdough loaves each time—but even more exciting, each bread is shaped to celebrate its month. February takes the form of a heart, April is a bunny and November is a turkey. Leftover slices? Use them to make sourdough turkey melts.
Jelly of the Month
Jam clubs may never be as exciting as, say, a pool (just ask Clark Griswold), but we found a spin on this classic that comes pretty close. Big Spoon Roasters offers a PB&J of the Month Subscription, which includes a jar of featured jam perfectly paired with a nut butter each time.
Regional Eats of the Month
Can’t decide on a single food? Gift an entire city’s signature cuisine. Goldbelly’s New Orleans Monthly Subscription is one example (think gumbo, muffuletta and po’boys delivered to your door). The company also offers Chicago, San Francisco, LA, NYC and Miami options. The best part? These subscriptions support local restaurants and frontline workers. Talk about a win-win.
