We Love You, Bacon
"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.
50 Shades of 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*
Just Add Bacon
If you're caught in between bacon re-ups, you can get your bacon fix from the Bacon Salt and Bacon Sunflower Seeds. These flavorings are the culinary equivalent of getting a tender, pen-written love letter on artisinal bacon-scented paper. Temporarily separated by space and time, carry these and bacon is with you, wherever you are.
*Drizzles bacon hot sauce on tongue*
Surprise! It's Bacon
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? Throw some Bacon Pop in the microwave 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.

I got this for my brother who is a huge bacon fan for his birthday. He loved it and I was a fan of what he would share! The only issue we ran into is somehow the bag of popcorn became glued to the bottom of the box and upon opening it ripped so it had to be eaten right away and couldn't be saved. Also, it tasted somewhat stale but that could just be the type of popcorn and not the glue issue. He was still happy with it and to my knowledge everything else was great! Definitely order from here again.

This was a valentine surprise for my husband... He was pleasantly surprised to NOT receive flowers or cookies, but something "manly". He enjoyed all the bacon products too!
Your site was easy to navigate, has some really excellent & fun crates & shipping was done quickly.
Thanks for a great experience. I plan to order again & have been telling all my girlfriends to go check you out.
Thanks for the Crate Mom. Ha ha it's amazing

Dear Man Craters,
That review title tells the story in itself. I had you send a crate to my son. He told me that it was the best thing that I had ever sent him.
He loved the crowbar idea. So....keep it coming just like that. I already have a few more folks in mind to send the next man crate.

Bacon Crate - Cool Man-factor accomplished

I ordered my husband the Bacon Crate and had it sent to his office so as many guys as possible could see the coolness factor of the crate. When it arrived he carried it over his head to his desk before prying into it – he loved the mini crowbar and said the only thing that would have made it cooler was if the crowbar was also a bottle opener. So far he’s enjoyed the goods inside too. Like a man in a bacon shop he can't wait to try something else. FedEx failed to deliver on time, but the suspense was worth the wait!

I sent my boyfriend the bacon crate as a V-Day gift while I was out of the country and he loved it! Shipped the day I said it would and everything. Boyfriend left me some of the snacks and they were all pretty good, the bacon popcorn was my fav and I think he really liked the bacon salt cause hes been putting it on everything! I removed a star because the gift message I wrote didn't come up on the package... I'm not sure whats up with that.
Super cool gift for a guy!

I sent this to my husband for Valentine's day, he absolutely loved it. He thought the jerky was delicious and I am awaiting response on everything else included. No doubt I will be ordering this for other guys in the family!
Thanks Man Crates!

What a fun experience for a guy to open a gift like this. My husband didn't even care what was inside he just liked the crate!! It was all good except for the brittle…I was told it was like a dog bone. Can't wait to order my next one :)

My fiancé told me about these at Christmas time but it was too late to order it . I ordered the bacon crate for Valentine's Day about a month early and it arrived promptly on the right day. We shared the bacon popcorn first and the jerky second. He is hoarding the rest of it LOL! What a great idea for men who love bacon but hate ribbons and bows. I can't wait for fresh new crate to come out. I have already suggested a Nascar crate and am anxious to see what you come up with to put in it.

So, I wanted to get something for my boyfriend for Valentine's Day and have it delivered to his work. He's a firefighter on an Air Force Base, so it had to be something that didn't involve flowers, stuffed animals, singing telegrams, etc. After what felt like countless hours searching the internet and almost settling on one of those awful "we're trying to be manly but this is still sort of feminine" gift baskets with cheese, smoked sausage, and nuts, I found mancrates.com. It was like I instantly knew this was what I would get him. The hardest part was choosing which crate. After deciding on the bacon crate, I ordered and had to call in to make absolute sure that the crate would be delivered ON February 14th. The really super nice guy on the phone told me how to specify this, and assured me you guys would do everything you could to make it happen. Guess what! You made it happen. The crate arrived on V-day, my boyfriend was absolutely ecstatic and surprised, and everything inside of it is awesome. Much love to Mancrates! Y'all rock.

My boyfriend loved the crate and opening it was fun. He hasn't eaten all the products but loved the idea of the bacon products inside. Overall, I think the gift was a big success. My only reservation about this item is the price. I believe it is a little overpriced for what you get.

While I love the whole idea of the crate - my husband did not enjoy the popcorn, brittle or jerky.

Bacon is With You
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.
