Surprised my husband with this for Valentine’s Day! He could never reach that perfect level of painfully delicious hot before Man Crate! Would recommend to all who love spice!!

Best. Gift. Ever.
Not a man, but like to eat spicy stuff and bust stuff open like a man. My best friend got me this crate for Christmas. Let me tell you, not only was the stuff inside awesome, but the whole experience of getting the sucker open was awesome too. We laughed, I yelled, I cussed a little, and finally I was able to pop it. It was the most fun I’ve ever had opening a gift. Highly recommend for the person in your life who loves to tear stuff up.

Great fathers day gift!!!! My husband loves it.
I purchased the hot and spicy crate for my husband for Father’s Day. I found this website on Google from the search phrase “gifts for husband for Father’s Day”. He is a huge spice fan and a “manly man” so I thought the mancrate would be a sweeeeet idea. He was SO shocked and loved it! I will definitely be back for gifts in the future. Thanks guys

Got this as a birthday gift for my dad, and he loved it. When they say the spice level is extreme, they're not lying!

I bought this for my boyfriend who is one of the hardest people to shop for. He is very picky and hard to please when it comes to gifts. He loves anything spicy, popcorn, and meat, so obviously this was perfect and I never thought I’d find those three things in one box. Watching him struggle to open the crate made it all worth it to me and then seeing his face light up with excitement when he saw what was inside made it 10x better. Thank you guys for making his birthday a great one and also for having me covered for all his birthdays to come!

Hot and Spicy Crate
This package arrived in a box that was unique, the crate was well packed and all products were intact. This was a Fathers day Gift for my 28 year old son, LOVED, LOVED it!! My son was smiling from ear to ear the whole time he was opening them (well until he sampled all the "flavors" as he opened them then it was more of a lopsided drool). The popcorn was hands down the best!!! Will definitely be recommending and ordering from MAN CRATES again!!!

Best gift ever!
My boyfriend loves the heat, and was beyond excited seeing the goodies in this crate. Even the popcorn was surprisingly good! The jerky, of course, was beyond amazing. The sauces not only taste good, the labels are fire too

Awesome product & even better customer service
Just order the hot & spicy, delivered exactly as promised. Customer service was attentive and responded with 1/2 if my text asking for delivery confirmation as this was a Birthday gift. Can’t say enough about this great experience. Will definitely send this again!

Wonderful gift with amazing customer service
We had a glitch in delivery, but Vanja fixed it quickly and kindly. Once my hubby received his crate, he loved using the crowbar to open it. He was even more delighted with the contents and says it is one of the coolest things he has ever received . Will order again !

Holy Hot, Delicious Hell!!!
In the best way possible. Ordered this for my husband (and secretly myself) and this crate is no joke. Everything had great flavor AND heat when most other's only have one or the other. My only regret is not getting the bigger box.

Neat Crate and Excellent Customer Service
This Man Crate is for those who love the heat. I was skeptical going in about the quality of the jerky, popcorn and chips but I was wrong because the flavor was great.
I more so want to speak of the customer service that represents Man Crates. I ordered a Man Crate to give as a Christmas gift therefore receiving on time was vital. I was given proper notification of when the crate would ship along with tracking information. When the packaged showed delivered, I never received it at my doorstep. I called Man Crates and spoke with their customer service and asked if there was anything they could do about (because for all I know someone could have snatched it from outside my apartment door). The lady I spoke with didn't even hesitate to replace what was missing. In 4-5 days the replaced crate ALONG with an additional crate was sitting at my door. I'm not sure if they do this with all orders of this nature but it was much appreciated and a nice surprise. So thank you Man Crate for your customer support and I will recommend buying your awesome crates.

Excellent service and great products!
I ordered this crate for my husband who is in the Army. He was in training during Valentines and I thought this would be the perfect treat for him since he LOVES HOT STUFF.
The crate got there in time, he was really excited to open the man crate and he loved what was in there. Unfortunately two of the bottles were broken. I sent an email the Customer Service and they solved it with great professionalism and it all went very smooth. I got to say that they even over exceeded my expectations and I am pretty picky about services. So if you want to surprise someone you love and care for, I would recommend Man Crate just because they will make sure you will be satisfied with the delivery.
Plus! They have a Military Discount for our heroes.
High five to the team at Man Crates!

I got this for Christmas and it was great. Had to open it with a little force, but it was worth it. I have eaten all of its contents and wishing it full again. This is the best gift ever.

This sh!t is no joke!
I got this crate for my husband for Christmas. He loves hot sh!t, but it also has to taste good. He was skeptical at first, then he ate the chips, which he described as "frickin' awesome" in between gasps for air from the heat. Then he tried the popcorn. That soon became a dare for our friends..."Oh, try this, you'll love it!" We got a buddy of ours to try just ONE piece of the popcorn. He and my husband's reaction inspired me to use #mantears on twitter. So then my husband tried the sauces on some tortilla chips. Oh man, his face was on fire! One of our friends even refused to try any after seeing what my husband went through! It's no joke-it's hot AND good!

A Fabulous Gift!
I order The Man Crate for my fire-eating son, and he fully respected the heat. I got a chuckle watching him pry into the crate, but there was no joking around when it came to the sauces - they was legit. The Man Crate is the perfect gift for a fire-eater.

Surprise Christmas Present
My wife really went all out looking for something fun and interesting. It was not gift wrapped/duct taped but I quickly realized there were no "pull here tabs" or convenient edges to use for leverage.
After about 10 min or so I manage to get it off and found a glorious bounty of awesome & pain!
I'm a serious hot sauce guy and this is hands down just an awesome gift for a hot sauce lover in your family.
In terms of the contents, I have not finished going through all of them but the Cornferno Caramel Corn is a winner. Watching my father-in-law try a few kernels and then suddenly jump like he saw a ghost was awesome!
I also really liked the Mad Dog Sriricha Reaper Sauce. It has a good steady heat but rich in flavor. I'll be mixing this into my Sriricha Hot Salsa for the ultimate combo!

Tested some asseninely spicy sauces from the Man Crates I got for my birthday today while learning Java (i'm a glutton for punishment), I've come to the following conclusions about some of Ashley Foods products...
Mad Dog 357 Gold Edition is full body annihilation hot. It has notes of garlic, cayenne, vinegar, pennies, and bear mace with a delicate tear gas/fire extinguisher powder and cilantro finish. My taste buds were completely shot afterward. 7/10
Pure Ghost is much like the above without any extracts of any kind from the plutonium sauce. It tastes a little sweet, a little smoky, and GOD DAMNED HOT! Not necessarily a "I regret my existence" hot like the 357 Gold Edition but more of a drooling desperate repentance for all that you've done in life. Then it tastes sweet again. 9/10
Reaper Siracha is really good. Makes you sweat and or cry a little but is WAY more tolerable and doesn't taste like pennies and bear mace. It's like Sriracha Rooster Sauce sat down quietly in contemplation and lit itself on fire whilst questioning the nature of its own existence, realized it was on fire, ran around the room a few times and tried to put itself out with artisanal powdered spices. 9/10

They are not kidding about this sauce- IT IS NO JOKE. I ordered for my spice loving husband. He is no wuss when it comes to hot foods. The jerky and chips alone were a force to be reckoned with. I watched him and his brother cry through dinner when they put the Mega Death Sauce on their burritos. It was hysterical. All and all the box was great fun! The only way it could have been just a bit better is if the diabolical duct tape was put on the wooden crate itself and not on the cardboard box. It did not slow him down much. Excellent customer service and product- will definitely order again!

Awesome Customer Service
Got this for my Dad's birthday. He loved the whole concept, thought it was hilarious, especially since we gave it to him out at a restaurant. Can only imagine what our server thought about the guy at her table prying open a box with a crowbar! But even better than the gift was what I experienced after. There was a small mistake made with my order. Nothing that affected my dad's enjoyment of his gift. I contacted the company and Molly was super quick with a response and a great resolution! Was more than I was expecting, even knowing from previous reviewers that this team gives great service! I definitely recommend them and will be ordering again in the future!

Most Fun Gift!
I recently gave this crate to my brother-in-law for Christmas. It was fun watching him try to open the gift. With the "gift wrapping" and the actual crate, it took him about 20 minutes to finally open his gift. Once he finally saw what was inside, he loved it. I would order again.

My coworker loves spicy food and he absolutely loved the crate! He said the beef jerky was awesome and the chips were delectable. Thanks for a great Christmas present~

I got this for my brother-in-law for Christmas, he loved everything about it!! From having to pry the crate open to all the spicy ingredients inside, he could not wait to cook with them!! His birthday is coming up in January, pretty sure I already know where I am getting his gift from,.

Really Great Gift!!
My boyfriend loves hot sauces and spicy foods, this was the perfect Christmas gift! He's even keeping the crate. He tried them all, the ultra death sauce caused some numbing, but apparently in a good way. Would get again!
