Mantry March 2018 Review
Each box also includes a note from Mantry’s co-founder, Reggie Milligan.
You’ll also receive a booklet each month; this month’s theme is Tequila Sunrise.
This booklet also includes the contents of your box, along with some ideas on how to prepare them.
Now let’s take a look at what I received!
I'm always up to try a new cocktail, so I was pretty excited this hibiscus rose cocktail mix was in this month's Mantry! It isn't overly sweet, which I appreciate and is super tasty! I mixed with tequila, a few ice cubes and a dash of lime and o my, it was quite tasty. I can definitely see myself trying more flavors from this brand in the future!
Three Little Pigs Chorizo, 8 oz. - Retail Value $9.99
I love chorizo, so this was another win for me in this month's box. This sausage isn't overly spicey and paired quite nicely with a pepper jack and goat cheese! I put it out for a little appetizer for friends before dinner and everyone really enjoyed it!
Hatchup Katchup, 10 oz. - Retail Value $8.00
I put ketchup on most things, so another win for me in this month's Mantry! This "katchup" is on the spicier end and is very tasty. It's a nice change of pace and a big flavor upgrade into what I'm currently eating. If you enjoy ketchup like myself, I suggest you giving this stuff a try - it's delicious!
Chimi Rub, 2 oz. - Retail Value $6.95
This chimi rub has quite a spicy kick to it and really did a nice job of spicing up my chicken! The rub consists of parsley, garlic, red pepper and sea salt, which when put together, creates a nice blend. The container suggests trying this with poultry, streak, fish and even popcorn, which I think I'll have to try very soon!
Sriracha Pretzels, 7 oz. - Retail Value $5.00
I love both sriracha and pretzels, so when they're combined, they really create a winning combination that's super tasty! These pretzels are definitely spicy, which means I can't eat too many at one time, so I'll have these around for a bit before finishing the bag. If you like spice and pretzels, I suggest you give these a try!
I love chocolate but this was a miss for me. This bar consists of caramel, chocolate and some sort of mousse drizzled with sea salt on top. I cared for the caramel, but the chocolate on the inside was not for me; I didn't love the taste or the texture, so I couldn't even finish this one.
Verdict: I continue to be impressed by Mantry and the selection of food they send every time! The estimated value received in this month’s crate was $41.44, which is under the $49 price paid (including free shipping). A couple items could only be found in larger quantities online, so the total value could be higher. I really enjoyed the selection and got to try things I wouldn’t normally buy in the store.
