Enjoying The Best Jerky Gift Box from The Manly Man Company®

Beef Jerky for Father's Day

The folks from The Manly Man Company® sent me a free sample of their jerky in the form of The Best Jerky Gift Box. Opinions are my own.

Now the reason I did not say Beef Jerky was that The Best Jerky Gift Box contains not only beef jerky but bacon and pepperoni jerky. I’ve never had the pleasure of trying either but I am very excited about it. The Best Jerky Gift Box retails for $65 and contains a bunch of different jerky in various flavors. Contained in the box I received there were eight packages of jerky. They were:

  • 1x Barbecue Mesquite Beef Jerky (3oz.)
  • 1x Old Fashioned Maple Bacon Jerky (2oz.)
  • 1x Pepperoni Jerky- Straight up Pepperoni (2oz.)
  • 1x Draft Ale- Black Label Beef Jerky (3oz.)
  • 1x Whiskey Straight- Black Label Beef Jerky (3oz.)
  • 1x Manly Man Original Beef Jerky Flower Trimming (3oz.)
  • 1x Manly Man Teriyaki Beef Jerky Flower Trimming (3oz.)
  • 1x Manly Man Hot Beef Jerky Flower Trimming (3oz.)

Jerky SelfieYou might be thinking to yourself, as I was at first, what are Flower Trimmings? Well, in addition to some great gift baskets for men The Manly Man Company® also does Man Bouquets. They make flower bouquets out of their jerky. The one item that has me totally salivating over here is their BACON ROSES + Dark Chocolate gift box. These are a dozen maple candied bacon jerky roses dipped in dark chocolate. No wonder it is already sold out! So then, now you know what flower trimmings are, they are the trimmings from all of those jerky flowers that are made for the bouquets.

There are plenty of great gift ideas for the men in your life on this site. The package I received had many different jerky in resealable packages so I can easily sample from all of them and seal them back up to enjoy again when I have a moment to relax and enjoy some quiet time and well crafted jerky. I did try quite a few of them and wow, I really like the Old Fashioned Maple Bacon Jerky and the Pepperoni Jerky.

BenSpark’s Holiday Gift Guide – Playmobil the Movie Toys

Playmobil the Movie Toy

Playmobil sent us a few of their Playmobil the Movie set for free to include in BenSpark’s Holiday Gift Guide. Opinions are our own.

Playmobil: The Movie arrived in theaters this past Friday. I want to take Andrew to see it because he has expressed interest in seeing the movie. He’s always into Playmobil around this time of year because we bring out the Playmobil Advent Calendar from years past and the kids set it up to play with. This year they have a whole new backdrop to use with the Christmas Bakery set and Andrew’s new Advent Calendar the Construction Site Fire Rescue one. Well, he’s gonna flip out when we see the movie and he comes home to find that he has all the sets from Playmobil The Movie. Yes, Playmobil sent us ALL of the sets! It is totally crazy how many there were and how cool they were, too.

You can see them all in this video where I show them and I also unbox Rex Dasher’s Porsche Mission E remote control car!

Here’s more detail on the sets contained in the video that were sent to me. Continue reading BenSpark’s Holiday Gift Guide – Playmobil the Movie Toys
