I have the perfect gift for your manly friends. Mantry delivers a selection of high-quality artisan selections in a beautiful crate shipped right to your door.

Company Overview

Mantry is not your typical grocery items. They promise to deliver unique food from around the nation under a theme (such as comfort food, Bourbon Breakfast, etc.).

What’s in the Box?

My sample Mantry box arrived in an awesome crate and contained Naked blueberry granola, bacon jam, mint julep mixer, shortbread fennel cookies, beef jerky and espresso caramel chews. The theme of the crate was comfort food and also contains a booklet with a story and featuring each product and why it was selected, including a few recipes.

My Thoughts

The presentation of the Mantry crate was very special. The crate really gives it class. The selection of products included appealed to a variety of tastes with salty, sweet and savory all featured. Of the products included, the granola was absolutely incredible. It was so moist and fresh. My manly tasters were big fans of both the caramel chews and the beef jerky which were the first two items depleted from the crate.

Mantry delivers on it’s promise to carefully select the products under the theme. Each item was unique and likely not found at your local grocery store, which adds to the appeal.


Good food doesn’t come cheap. Mantry subscriptions range from $75 a month to $450 for 6 months.


My manly testers really dug the Mantry box. It was quality food, albeit a bit pricy for an every month subscription. If I was shopping for a gift for that difficult man in my life, Mantry would be an excellent idea. This box would make a great gift for Father’s Day, birthdays, groomsman / wedding gifts, Christmas, Valentine’s Day or even “just because.”
