Mantry Review – Bacon Nation Box!
Mantry is a subscription box that describes itself as “the modern man’s pantry.” I would describe it as a gourmet food subscription that ships in an awesome wooden crate!
We had been subscribing to this box for a few months, but I didn’t get notified that my credit card on file had expired, so our subscription just stopped. It’s been on my list to resubscribe, and I was pleasantly surprised when Mantry offered to send me this box to review. My husband was even more thrilled since this month’s theme is all about bacon!
The Subscription Box: Mantry
The Cost: $75
The Products: The Modern Man’s Pantry: a Food of the Month Club that helps you discover American artisan food.
Each box comes with a card detailing the items included and the regions where they are made. Between the card and the crate, this box definitely has great packaging for a gift!
Broadbent’s Applewood Smoked Bacon – Value $8
Bacon’s Heir Pork Clouds – Value $6
I didn’t get to try either of these items, but my husband said they were both fantastic!
Mo’s Uncured Bacon Caramel Toffee – Value $12
Redhead Bacon Peanut Brittles – Value $6
My husband loves toffee and bacon, so finding this chocolate in the box was some sort of bacon miracle. I’ll need to buy him some more for a holiday gift since this box is already gone!
Empire Mayonnaise in Bacon – Value $8
Stu’s Bloody Mary Mix – Value $9
We just got a panini press, and this Bacon Mayo arrived at the perfect time!
Verdict: By my calculations, this box has a food product value of about $50. (To be fair though, some of these products aren’t available for purchase at these single sizes). I think the curation of Mantry products is excellent, the packaging is perfect, and if I could change anything I’d like to see the value be closer to the cost of the box. (I’m sure this box costs a lot to ship though).
What do you think of the Bacon Mantry box?
