TribLive Taste Test: Man Crates Beef Jerky Tool Box

Patrick Varine

For the man (or woman) who can’t get enough dried beef in their life, today the TribLive Taste Test team tried out Man Crates’ Jerky Tool Box.

It comes in a cardboard replica tool box and is loaded up with half-ounce and 1-ounce samples of 14 types of beef jerky. We tried out six of them in a blind taste test — habañero, whiskey maple, ghost pepper, garlic, honey bourbon and sesame ginger — and tried to guess which was which (the ghost pepper one was pretty easy to guess).

The Man Crates Jerky Tool Box is $49.99 at It’s not a ton of product for the money, but it is high-quality jerky and we liked most every flavor we tried.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
