The Mantry is marketed as “the modern man’s pantry” subscription service, but considering it’s just food – I enjoy it as much as my boyfriend! May’s Mantry theme is Smoke and Whiskey – almost everything has bourbon in it! (Check out my review of the April Mantry box too!)The Box: MantryThe Cost: $75The Products: The Modern Man’s Pantry: a Food of the Month Club that helps you discover American artisan food.Bourbon Smoked Peppercorns – Value $9Vermont Smoke and Cure Summer Sausage – Value $7I think my boyfriend was the most excited about the Summer Sausage in this box. I didn’t get a chance to try it yet- but he said it was pretty good. (So far no subscription box meat has come close to Slant Shack Jerky for him!)Fat Toad Farm Salted Bourbon Goat’s Milk Caramel – Value $10Wondermade Bourbon Marshmallows – Value $7.50I wish I could eat the caramel – I bet it is amazing over ice cream! I’ve had Wondermade Marshmallows before and love them – their flavors are amazing (I sampled lavender and rose raspberry before).Bourbon Nib Brittle – $13WoodFord Reserve Sorghum Vinaigrette Dressing – Value $10I am so excited about this salad dressing – it’s a unique flavor I wouldn’t come across at my local grocery store, and it’s perfect timing for summer salads! Oh, and this box was full of delicious looking items I couldn’t eat because of dairy – but my boyfriend confirmed that this Brittle was delicious!Verdict: The value of this box came to about $57. I wish the value was a little closer to the $75 I paid, but I’m definitely happy with the food and the packaging. Do you subscribe to Mantry?
