Aside from the crate full of unique food items Mantry customers are sent every other month, they also offer a “Recipes for Men” section on their website. Here you can find simple, yet exquisitely delicious recipes for meals, snacks and drinks that would make any man’s mouth water. The recipes are free to view and contain the needed ingredients and step by step instruction so you can create each one in your own home. This is great for both men who love to cook as they can learn new recipes and for men who do not know how to cook as it offers fairly simple recipes to help them learn.
Check out this very simple sample recipe for their Bacon Jam Burger, for which you will need: 1 pound of ground chunk, the Bacon Jams bacon spread, cheddar cheese, burger buns, salt and pepper and some fixins (sliced pickle, lettuce, onions, etc.). Preparing this burger is done in 4 easy steps:
- Season the ground chuck with salt & pepper then form the patties.
- Heat vegetable oil in a cast iron skillet, brown the patties on both sides with cheese and cook to preference.
- Toast the buns and smear with bacon spread.
- Layer patty with fixins and enjoy!
Pricing and Features
Mantry, as their clever name suggests, offers a wide variety of food products that are perfect for men — although food is supposed to be universal, so women can absolutely find a lot of things to like here as well. The company sources a collection of food items from some of the top artisan food makers in country, making sure to search for only the highest quality food products to give customers a unique experience. They also curate them around a unique theme for each package such as “Bacon Nation” or “Bourbon BBQ,” giving you a unique food experience every time you receive a Mantry box.
A subscription with Mantry will cost you $49 per package, which makes it roughly $24.50 a month since they ship out a package only every other month. They do also offer a 12 month plan that costs $294 ($24.50 a month) but comes with a free jerky kit. This may seem like a little consolation for paying for a full year upfront, but if you do plan to stay with them for a year, paying upfront and getting a free gift is not so bad. 12 month plans automatically revert to a monthly plan after they expire but you can cancel it at any time then subscribe for a 12 month plan again to get another free gift. This is a good way for committed customers to get a little something out of their loyalty to Mantry.
Mantry offers a short FAQ section on their website for basic questions and concerns about their products and services. Aside from that, they have an online form that you can fill out with your contact information and concern or you email them directly; either way would garner an email response from their support representatives. You can also connect with them via Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr. It’s a shame that they don’t have phone or live chat support, so those looking to have a one on one with a live person will have to make do with the available support options.
