'Twas the Bite Before Christmas

The Christmas mythos is littered with fateful fables of well-intentioned gifts gone wrong:

  • "The Gift of the Maji", a cautionary tale of miscommunication and fiscal irresponsibility rampant among young married couples.
  • "The Twelve Days of Christmas", or what modern translators refer to as "The Twelve Days of ‘Coming On A Bit Strong There, Buddy'".
  • A Christmas Story, the classic Christmas comedy/native ad from the BB Gun Industry.

In the Christmas season when good intentions around gifts aren't always good enough, we're proud to debut a savory twist on a seasonal tradition that fuels holiday anticipation and feeds exotic appetites.

Our Jerky Advent Calendar is a festive feast of meats and sweets that will last all season long.


There’s no telling what seasonal surprise he’ll discover that day: tender jerky, scotch caramels, peppermint nougat, or eggnog taffy. The only guarantee is that it will be delicious.

We’ve even designed two distinctly interactive calendar experiences to keep him engaged ‘til Christmas morning. Can’t decide? Send both calendars!

The Strike Before Christmas:

Twas the month before Christmas, and throughout the North Pole,

All the elves were disgruntled. They were losing control…

And thus begins Day One of The Strike Before Christmas Advent Calendar. We didn’t want to sugarcoat the hard truths of the holiday with sappy, seasonal niceties, and every door tells the irreverent tale of Santa’s North Pole pandemonium leading up to Christmas.

The Advent-ure Calendar

Every punch-out door of the Jerky Advent Calendar features an “adven-ture fact” corresponding to that day’s date. It’s education and edification rolled into one!

This Jerky Advent Calendar is the ultimate carnivore, candied countdown celebrating 25 delicious December days.

    5* to top list - but it’s SO lame

    This advent calendar is lame! There is no creativity. Day 1 nasty Brach’s candy, 2 jerky, 3 tasteless taffy, 4 jerky, 5 caramel, REPEAT, over and over again... It goes on and on, without any variation. Thankfully there are completely useless (and not funny) trivia facts written in the cardboard daily, which help remind you how big of a sucker you were to pay for this!

    Dec 11th 2017

    This is pathetic, it contained a few small samples of jerky and a few individual pieces of Brach's peppermint taffy (which sells retail for $7-$8 per lbs). Spending the exact same amount of money as this costs on full size jerky and candy would have yielded you bags full of both instead of the incredibly small portions provided. I guess we all get suckered once, but we won't be shopping at Man Crates ever again.

    Made a little dude very happy

    I sent this to my 11 year old nephew. He loved it. Had his jerky with breakfast every morning in December.
    My position of “cool aunt” is secure.

    Hubby was really surprised

    This is such a cool gift. I am always looking for a different type of advent calendar for my husband and this one is a prize winner! He can't wait to start next Thursday.
