"Love" is a strong word that's sometimes hard for men to say. Entangling, complicated emotional loops in our male brains can choke us up when we're trying to form that simple syllable, unless the next word is "Bacon".
There is no easier, more joyous pronouncement for us to make than to declare, unequivocally, that we love bacon.
We're not ashamed to say our love is untraditional. We love bacon in ways your parents might not approve of. We use bacon in ways that might not have crossed your mind. If you share our passion, then let this crate open your mind to seven new ways to express your love.
Start with Jeff's Famous Bacon Jerky. Ready to have your mind blown? What if we told you bacon doesn't have to just be a staple at breakfast and on your sandwich? Bacon can be a portable, dangerously habit forming companion at your finger tips, 24/7. You might start hoarding and stashing. You might tape packs of Bacon Jerky below the conference room table, sew pockets into the inner lining of your long johns, and fill the side panels of your car with bacon jerky in case you ever break down.
In fact I'm eating bacon jerky as I'm writing this, and if you had bacon jerky you could be too.
*Tenderly puts bacon jerky between teeth*
You can get your bacon fix from the bacon flavored snacks. This flavoring is the culinary equivalent of getting a tender, pen-written love letter on artisanal bacon-scented paper. Temporarily separated by space and time, carry this and bacon is with you, wherever you are.
Bacon has always made straight A's for 'plays nicely with others.' We've gathered an assortment of awesome bacon-enhanced snacks from the obvious popcorn flavors to the exotic Sir Fancis Bacon Peanut Brittle. Want a deliciously twisted night in? Grab a bowl of bacon popcorn and put on Charlotte's Web. Want to impress your date with something better than chocolates? Sir Francis Bacon Peanut Brittle. If it doesn't work they're probably not a keeper.
*Thinking about calling in sick and eating bacon in bed all day*
Share our love, don't judge us.
In a sealed wooden crate with a laser-etched crowbar. No bow, no ribbons, no fluff, and absolutely no instructions.

First, I'm fairly certain that the challenge to open the crate is actually a test to confirm that enough manliness is possessed by the recipient to prove he is worthy of said crate. If he is successful in opening, the most amazing rewards await him! All I can say is that I nailed it with this gift!!

What a surprise! Our eldest daughter, Crystal and our granddaughter, Bella sent this for me to enjoy on Father's Day! What a surprise. I'd still be working on the crate if I hadn't used the hammer....GREAT GLUE....GREAT FUN....GREAT BACON!!!!! [weblink removed]

I got this for my husband for Father's Day. It was super exciting to see him open it and see how much he enjoyed it! It was a great and creative gift! Thank you!

I purchased this for my husband because I thought it was a great idea - and so did he until he started eating the contents. He said things either tasted old or just didn't have good flavor. I expected for the price for it to be excellent but he and I were both disappointed and wish I hadn't spent almost $70 for this very small crate with few contents that ended up being thrown away after he tasted them.

Buying for a man can be painful! Not with ManCrates! The Bacon crate came with ZERO direction and my guy had a fabulous time figuring it out! Thank you so much for providing a fun new creative way to spoil my guy! Also customer service was way beyond stellar! Everyone I spoke to was up beat and extremely helpful. I can't wait to send the next crate!

Man Crates ARE fun. My daughter got one for me for my birthday. While I enjoy reading your promotional material, please don't brag about the wimpy pry bar. My wife went to my tool box and got my framing hammer to assist the "pry bar" in the task.
MAN CRATES EDIT:
Hey Charles, we're proud of our mini-pry bars, and we've put them through extensive testing. Since you had to use a hammer to assist in opening the crate we're wondering if it was the pry-bar's fault? It could be wild speculation on our part but it may not be the pry bar that was wimpy in this scenario. Either way, we're glad you loved the gift and thanks for your review!!

I bought this for my Grandson who eats bacon every day. He had one bite of everything because it was just too salty, or tasted stale. Gave everything to the dog, and she would not eat it either, but he did keep the crate.
Man Crates Edit:
Joneta, so sorry to hear that your grandson did not enjoy the contents of his crate. We've personally enjoyed every item in this crate (being a company made up of bacon lovers) and can say that we found everything included delicious and were willing to bet everyone else would too, or we wouldn't have put it inside of our crate! Since you mentioned that he said something tasted stale we're afraid there may have been an issue with the contents. Give us a buzz at 866-902-7260 or send over an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll do our best to make it right, thanks!

I gave this to my husband for his birthday last week and he loved it! He had fun opening the crate and is enjoying the bacon treats. I was impressed with the packaging of this product.

So I got the bacon crate as a christmas gift for my gf's dad, and it was mostly a big success. I opted for the duct tape wrapping as an option, which was a charge of a couple of dollars extra. But when they applied the shipping label to the package, they applied it directly to the duct tape wrapping, making it impossible to remove without damaging the duct tape. I'm not sure if is how they always do it, but if it is, that's stupid. You can print a shipping label that sits inside of a plastic bag, and adheres along two strips of adhesive as cheaply as you can a sticky printer label that damages the wrapping your customers are paying extra for. Anything other than how mine came would be an improvement.
TL;DR: Don't get the Duct Tape Wrapping, they ruin it with the shipping label.

I bought the bacon crate for a long time friend with 2 young adult sons. I was so surprised the guys were so into opening the crate.. it is not easy, LOL.
The product was completely enjoyed, but I think the Crate was the "toy".
I will definitely order from here again!

I ordered this and the "Smash and grab Gift Card" for two family members for Christmas. The Man Crates team mixed up the "diabolical duct tape wrapping" option and put it on the wrong box, but the gifts were the most talked about ones among my family. My brother loved the bacon crate. He had a blast opening the crate and couldn't wait to try all the bacon-inspired food.

I ordered this as a pregift for Christmas and my husband absolutely loved it! He couldn't believe that it came with a tool to open. I will highly recommend this to anyone!

A stale Pacific breeze wafted over the deck of the Spanish galleon, carrying the smells of the sea over Julio. Faint notes of sun-baked kelp and floating detritus couldn't mask the unmistakable saltiness of the air, and Julio's memories of yesterday morning crept into his mind. It seemed so long ago, his last breakfast with Gloria. Gloria had awakened hours before Julio, before the island dawn, to roll the dough for buttery biscuits and cut a dozen fine strips of glorious, marbled Bacon.
Bacon had sung to him from the pan at sunrise, a sweet chorus of sizzles and pops- each note punctuated by the spatter of delicious hot grease in the cold of the new day. It was to her sweet music, her sweet smell, that Julio had awoken just yesterday.
How Julio missed her. How Julio missed sweet, sweet Bacon.
Crewed on a 3 month voyage twixt the spice isles, Julio had known that morning would be their last together for a long time. He had been content to sit quietly and watch her cooking in the cast iron skillet, slowly, imperceptibly darkening from a fleshy, Philippine-sky pink to the rich, ripe, ruby hue of Bacon that's ready to eat. Bacon hardened gently, curling as her fat and lean responded to the chemical changes of cooking, as though she was beckoning Julio. As though she knew Julio was waiting for her.
It was too much for Julio- he couldn't wait. He seized a piece of Bacon from the pan and put it in his mouth. She was too hot for his hands, too hot for his tongue- she was still glistening with the juices that had been released in the pan. He held her in his teeth, breathing quickly, overwhelmed by the tease of Bacon's taste and the heat still radiating from her crispy curves.
After a drawn out moment of anticipation, Bacon was ready for him, and he took her.
Julio chewed slowly, relishing the contrasting texture of her crispiness against her supple fat. Each piece of Bacon brought deep, emotional stirrings in him- he knew he would be at sea without her for months. He struggled with his simultaneous desires to have her all at once and for their morning together to last forever. Piece after piece, bite after bite, Julio and Bacon were joined together. And as the plate emptied he didn't want to finish, didn't want it to end, but after one last emphatic bite the last crispy strip was gone and he was left with an empty plate and his thoughts.
He imagined his months apart from Bacon as he licked his fingers. The anticipation of his loneliness and the longings of their parting were somehow already laced with his feelings in their last moments together. An empty plate of Bacon is such sweet sorry.
Then Julio made love to Gloria and said goodbye.
That was yesterday, and that was miles beyond the horizon he had sailed over, but he imagined that the ocean breeze behind their sails bore its saltiness from the Bacon waiting for him at home in Manila. Julio's duties on the ship took him away from his idle thoughts, and with a mind numbed by menial labor, he went through the rest of his day on the galleon.
