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!

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.

Great in every way
Such a unique gift filled with awesome exotic meats.

Less than half of the days have meat.
It is my fault for not reading the full description of this product before purchasing it. Not all the days are jerky. And after receiving it I found that less than half of the items were jerky. If I had realized that I wouldn't have purchased the calendar. I hope they have an all meat option next week. The product did come in a timely manner and was as described if you read the full description.

Too much candy; not enough jerky
I was so so excited to get this calendar. I even posted it on Facebook. However, I misread the amount of candy that would be received. The jerky is good but not enough of it. It should be called a Candy Advent Calendar.

The product is as advertised. I didn’t do the math to figure out that this box was only 40% jerky and 60% candy. That is on me. What I cannot be held responsible for is the terrible quality of the candy. My husband does not like most candies, but I couldn’t get through any of it, either. The best part is the sort-of fun facts on the inside of each “door”, and that is not saying much.

Oh ya it’s the sixth of December
And it’s just as terrible a gift as the first. I wish I could add a picture

I can’t give it no stars...
I got this gift from my wife, I was excited to get it, I opened up door 1 and the disappointment was we sent on my face. Awkward moment as I didn’t want to offend my wife. You guys are pure ripoff artists. You have a great idea and I would have spent thousands on my friends with this type of thing. Too bad you think your customers are suckers.
