Mantry April 2015 Subscription Box

Mantry (aka the Modern Man’s Pantry) is a food of the month club that lets you discover the finest american artisan foods – and gives you ideas of what to do with them.  It’s $75/month and has been around since the Fall of 2012.  It’s one of the more expensive subscriptions we get, but B loves it!

Mantry April 2015 Subscription Box Review

The Box

Mantry usually ships via UPS Mail Innovations, but this month my box shipped via USPS Priority Mail.

Mantry April 2015 Subscription Box Review

The Mantry Crate

Mantry packages all of their items inside of a Mantry branded wooden crate.  I think their packaging is one of the reasons I enjoy them so much.

Mantry April 2015 Subscription Box Review

First Look

I was super excited to open this and see all unfamiliar items!

The Information Card

The Information Card

The April 2015 Mantry theme was “Taco Truck” and included the following items:

~Yellowbird Habanero Sauce ($4): Mantry has a recipe for a cocktail using this sauce, but I am thinking maybe a little bit on a taco?  Just a little bit though!

Mantry April 2015 Subscription Box Review

Yellowbird Habanero Sauce

~Deano’s Jalapeños Jalapeño Chips ($4.49): Once this bag is opened these will be gone.  Mantry also suggests using these as a crunchy topping on a taco, but seriously the bag won’t last long enough for that.

Deano’s Jalapeños Jalapeno Chips

~Pernicious Pickling Co. Pickled Red Onions ($10): B and I both looked at these and were like no.  No way.  But the more I think about these on a taco, okay, yeah, I want to try that.

Mantry April 2015 Subscription Box Review

Pernicious Pickling Co. Pickled Red Onions

~Old Ranch Dog Mexican Hot Chocolate Walnuts ($8.99): I thought I would like these more than I actually do.  There is a lot going on in here.  They are chocolately, but they do have a kick to them for sure.

Old Ranch Dog Mexican Hot Chocolate Walnuts

~Savage Jerky Co. Mojo Jerky ($7.99): B was probably most excited about the beef jerky in this box.  He is a complete beef jerky addict.  It’s garlic, lime and cilantro flavored jerky and is hand-crafted in small batches.

~Hernan Mole Poblano ($8.99): I cannot remember where we received this but I recall LOVING it.  I can’t wait to make tacos with this.

~Mantry Black Bonus: Luchador Bottle Opener ($7.74): A few months back we received a Mantry Black card (it doubles as a bottle opener) in the mail.  It’s for loyal subscribers (we have subscribed to Mantry for years) and it had a note that mentioned that our Mantry experience would be upgraded whenever possible.  This fun bottle opener was the first little gift we have gotten and I love it!  SO fun.  I can’t wait to see what they have in store next.

Mantry April 2015 Subscription Box Review

Mantry Black Bonus: Luchador Bottle Opener

All totaled I came up with a value of $52.20 for the April 2015 Mantry.  And that includes the value of the bottle opener.  I was really surprised that the value of this one wasn’t higher.  I never would have guessed.  I loved that everything in here was brand-new to Mantry and I thought they did a great job with the theme!

Today I’m Smiling Because…

~Bruce Jenner! Last night’s interview was very enlightening and I am glad he got to share his story. Hopefully the paparazzi lay off him now.

~I caught a glimpse of the Talent Show yesterday when I was at L’s school for PTO stuff and it was so fun to see all those kids up there performing! And even better to see the crazy cheers they all got from the other students in the audience.

~L got a great Progress Report yesterday!  I am amazed by all that he has learned this year.  And the mohawk he was running around the house with this week when B was cutting his hair made me smile too!

~The new Starbucks by my house has opened!  I kid you not they built that thing in like 3 weeks.  Amazing.

Such a fancy drive-thru!

Such a fancy drive-thru!

~My boys are going to see Thomas the Train tomorrow!   WB is more excited about this than L, but I think L is secretly into it too.  CHOO-CHOO!

~The Lilly + Target returns are in full force and I have picked up some great stuff as a result.  I still have my eyes open for some Nosie Posey pillows, but I hope I can snag at least one!

~Of WB (who I should really just start calling W since he’s not a baby anymore). If you can hang out with him for 10 minutes, heck 5 minutes and he doesn’t make you smile, I’d be surprised.  This kid is a trip.

That’s it from here! What’s got you smiling today?

Little Lace Box April 2015

Little Lace Box is a subscription service that delivers hand-curated, nearly impossible-to-find designer products directly to your doorstep every other month. Boxes will be brimming with high-end, brand name beauty, lifestyle, and home product samples to treat yourself to and dazzle your friends during your next night out.

Little Lace Box April 2015

The Box

Little Lace Box ships via USPS Priority Mail sometime after the 20th if the month,  I love that they use Priority Mail because it means that there isn’t much difference between the time the first person gets their box and the last person gets their box.  If you want to stay spoiler free, this is a good one for it!

Little Lace Box April 2015

First Look

This box was super heavy and was packed full of products.  I had such a good time going through and unpacking it all.

Little Lace Box April 2015

The Information Card – Front

Little Lace Box April 2015

The Information Card – Back

The April 2015 Little Lace Box theme was “Nonna’s Kitchen” and all of the items were selected as a homage to their Grandmother’s.  The box contained the following items dedicated to all those memories from the sights, sounds and wonderful smells of a big Irish / Italian family:

~Porcelain Jewelry Dish by Artisan Janelle Beaulieu ($14): If you can zoom in on the information card and read the description of this, do it!  It was selected because it reminded them of a jewelry dish their Grandmother had in the kitchen.  Some of the boxes had glazed dishes and some (like mine) were unglazed.  If you don’t need a jewelry dish in the kitchen for when you take off your rings when you cook, you could use it next to your bed or even as a soap dish.

Porcelain Jewelry Dish by Artisan Janelle Beailieu

~Gourmet Olive Oil & Balsamic Vinegar from The Ancient Olive ($13.99):  I am really excited about these!  They were bottled just for Little Lace box and are a perfect fit for this box. The Sicilian Lemon Balsamic Vinegar is “light and fresh” and perfect for Spring while the Milanese Gremolata Olive Oil has consists of lemon zest, minced garlic, Italian flat lead parsley and a hint of mint.  B is going to love cooking with these.

~Olive Oil Dipping Bowls by Le Cadeaux ($15.99): At first I couldn’t figure out why you would need individual dipping bowls, but then the information card mentioned double-dipping and that makes total sense.  Also, we all seem to fight to be the one sitting by the bowl when we just do one so these will be great.  Like everyone else I did think that one of the bowls (the fruit one) seemed out of place, but it seems like that’s how it’s supposed to be.

Little Lace Box April 2015

Olive Oil Dipping Bowls by Le Cadeaux

~Tea Towel by Belle & Union Co. ($14.99): LOVE this tea towel!  We have gotten lots of fun ones from subscription boxes but this is one of my favorites.  We hang one on the stove at all times and this one is already there.

Little Lace Box April 2015

Tea Towel by Belle & Union Co.

~Filotea Pennetta della Domenica from Marx Foods ($8.99): I don’t normally buy $9 boxes of pasta, but when they happen to come in subscription boxes I love it.  I can so tell the difference and it’s an amazing treat to have.

Little Lace Box April 2015

Filotea Pennette della Domenica from Marx Foods

~Trentasette Red Pesto with Truffles Sauce from Marx Foods ($8.50): I believe there was an assortment of different pestos, sauces and pates sent out and I LOVE the one I received.  I just want to get some bread and dip it in this!

Little Lace Box April 2015

Red Pesto with Truffles Sauce from Marx Foods

~Cucina Dish Soap from Fruits & Passion ($8.99): You need to clean up all those dishes somehow!  I do 90% of the dishes here (as I should since I am rarely the one cooking) so this is all mine.  It smells fabulous and really just looks like a fancy soap.

Little Lace Box April 2015

Cucina Dish Soap from Fruits & Passion

~Market List Notepad by Brianna (Little Lace Box) ($4.99): LLB wanted to include a notepad that matched the tea towel and when they couldn’t find one anywhere they decided to design it themselves.  We’ll totally put this in the kitchen.  If we remember to bring it to the store or not, well, that’s a different story.

Little Lace Box April 2015

Market List Notepad by Brianna (Little Lace Box)

~One Full-Sized Ancient Olive Oil or Balsamic Vinegar ($13.99): LLB wanted to include a bottle of olive-oil or vinegar in this box, but due to the port strike Ancient Oils also had problems getting their large bottles shipped in.  So they provided subscribers with a coupon code to redeem from the LLB shop to use to get a free bottle – your choice of flavor!  This is even better than it being in the box itself because now you get to pick just what you want.

All totaled I came up with a value of $104.43 for the April 2015 Little Lace Box.  I loved what they did with the theme and thought the curation was spot on.  I also love that it included a TON of items in this one and not a larger big ticket item because, hopefully, it means there is something in here for everyone.

The information card also revealed that the June Little Lace Box theme is “Classy and Fabulous”!  The box will include fashion accessories to help you make the transition to summer and maximize your wardrobe for both day and night.  I cannot wait for this one!!!  If you are interested in ordering you can head on over to their site and select the one-box option for $59.99 (does not renew).  Or you can get a 3 or 6 box subscription and use the coupon code “RAMBLIN10” to save $10 off your first month!

As I mentioned, I received this box to review, but I love LLB so much that I also purchased up a box to giveaway! If you want to win just enter in Rafflecopter below and you’ll be set! Make sure you come back to enter everyday though.
