One of my favorite things about blogging is the exciting fact that there’s so much cool crap out there. I guess that’s true for the world wide web in general, if there’s something to create, someone awesome will create it, and it will find it’s way to us through the web. My absolute favorite site The Dieline, is an advertising/packaging lovers dream. Not only does the site showcase incredible designers & design houses, like a perfectly packaged gift the site opens our eyes to what good design & packaging can do for an idea. All the while turning us on to some of the most amazing companies and products available. The shit you don’t find on the shelves, true artisanship. The worlds most famous packaging blog has brought me many happy discoveries over the years and today I’ll share another.
TheMANTRY is basically a gift to us from some other insanely awesome foodie, man dimension. An entire company dedicated to discovering and sharing true food artisanship. The creators scour the globe to find items that are worthy of “THE MODERN MAN’S PANTRY“. As the company presents itself in a very masculine way, it doesn’t give up any style or dapper points along the way. Though I’m sure any food loving lady would love to find this box on the doorstep! Aside from incredible branding, MANTRY is making it easy for us to have artisan foods without having to stumble upon them in a fine foods store. With a monthly subscription you can feast on some of the tastiest goods available by simply stepping outside your front door to pick up your, handmade in Brooklyn, wooden crate and opening it up so feast on the carefully chosen, not easy to find products inside. With such incredible products like, my favorite Wondermade marshmallows, Vermont Sausage, Blackberry Farm foods, Smith teas, and The Jam Stand Jams the box will send your taste buds into gourmet overdrive.
While the price of the box is a bit steep for my poor college student bank account, the folks at My Subscription Addiction can provide us all with a thorough monthly box review. For the most part it looks like it’s worth it, A box O’ American gourmet goods arriving at the front door, I’d say thats almost priceless. Incase you need some extra incentive here are some visuals to jump start the salivation.
