The Products: The Modern Man’s Pantry: a Food of the Month Club that helps you discover American artisan food.
Ships to: US only.
This month’s theme is Grill and Chill – complete with 3D glasses!
Each box comes with a fold out card detailing each of the producers behind the food included and where they come from.
Bob’s Red Mill Natural Pearl Couscous – Value $4
Grady’s Cold Brew Iced Coffee Bean Bags – Value $12
My husband has declared Grady’s Cold Brew Bags his favorite subscription box discovery of all time! We first sampled this product through the Limited Edition Men’s Cool Hunting Birchbox, and my husband was beyond thrilled to find more in the Mantry box this month! (These are currently out of stock everywhere online, but hopefully I’ll be able to buy him more soon!)
Pata Negra Imperial Dry Cured Chorizo – Value $15?
Holy Smoke Smoked Olive Oil – Value $15
Olive Oil is one of my favorite items to get in food subscription boxes because I always will use it, and I love trying new gourmet flavors. I may try out some of the smoked olive oil recipes too, but I feel like this flavor could work with almost any dish.
Bourbon Smoked Sugar – Value $11
Salsa is one of those pantry items I always want to have extras on hand (I love using it with omelets), so I can’t wait to try this Cilantro Pineapple roasted salsa. And I have to say I think Mantry is the expert and finding bourbon-infused items! This sugar will go to the bar, but we may end up using a little for grilling too.
Verdict: This month’s box has a food retail value of about $65. Definitely a step up in value from last month. This is a subscription that is much more about the curation that the retail value, and I think they selected excellent items this month.
