Mantry Subscription Box Review & Coupon – January 2015
Mantry is a subscription box that describes itself as “the modern man’s pantry.” Each month they ship your gourmet food in their signature wooden crate.
Mantry sent me this box to review purposes. (Check out the review process postto learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Mantry
The Cost: $75
COUPON: Use this link to save $10 off your first box!
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 Tailgate Tour. (This box arrived in time before the Super Bowl, I’m just a little late on getting the review posted).
Each box comes with a fold out card detailing each of the producers behind the food included and where they come from.
Rosemary & Sea Salt Pork Clouds – Value $4
Molly & Me Pecans All Natural Sweet Heat Pecans – Value $9.75
We tried a different flavor of these Pork Clouds in a past Mantry box, and my husband was happy to have more.
These pecans were so good! ( I lucked out because they are gluten and dairy free). The sweet heat was a perfect combination for me – sweet enough to be a dessert treat, but with enough heat to make me not want to eat the entire bag at once!
La Esquina Black Bean Smoky and Savory Dip – Value $5.75
Owl’s Brew The Classic – Value $10
We enjoyed this bean dip for the Super Bowl – it was perfect with tortilla chips, and another gluten free and dairy free item for me!
And the Owl’s Brew goes to our bar for the next time we make cocktails – Mantry recommends combining it with vodka and lemonade. It sounds like a perfect summer time drink.
Mike’s Hot Honey – Value $10
Aurelia’s Dry Cured Chorizo – Value $9
This Hot Honey is recommended for using on pizza, chicken, ribs, biscuits, salads, fruits, cheeses and ice cream. I think it will be great for marinating chicken.
And my husband grabbed this chorizo as soon as I finished taking pictures – he loved it!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $50. As usual with Mantry, the values of the items themselves don’t equal the cost of this box, so I recommend this subscription only if you value the curation and presentation as well.
As far as the items go, I think the Tailgate curation this month is great, and every item we’ve tried so far has been delicious. What do you think of the January 2015 Mantry box?
