How many times have you received a boring gift? You smile and politely say “thanks”, wishing you received something better. Well, don’t be a bore when it comes to gifting. I guarantee that this is a present that (almost) anyone will love. What if I told you I’d found the most unique, and delicious, edible bouquet?
I recently received a Beef Jerky Flower Bouquet from Manly Man Co, and it was fantastic. I don’t know many men that get too excited about getting flowers, or even one of those edible fruit displays. But want about jerky?
The jerky bouquet comes pre-arranged in a sealed package that ensures freshness. The “stems” are made from a blend of beef, pork and spices, while the “petals” are made with 100% beef. For flavors, your options are original, teriyaki, hot or mixed. I went with the mixed so I could try all of them. As far as the vase goes, the bouquet comes in a pint glass.
The day it arrived at our house, we had company over. Let me tell you, it made quite an impression. I promptly took it out of the package, and set the arrangement on the counter. Everyone broke out their phones to snap a few pictures. Then, like locusts, the feeding began. It didn’t take long for our group to devour a good portion of the arrangement.
Manly Man Co seems to know who their target audience is. Besides their jerky bouquet, they also offer gifts like stemless maple candied bacon roses dipped in dark chocolate, Bloody Mary kits, and bacon scented gift wrapping paper. They even have fun kits like Beer, Bacon, and Whiskey MANcakes.
Of course, men aren’t the only ones who like these types of gifts. That’s why they recently launched Awesome Gifts Co. You can find many of the same gifts, but with the Awesome Gifts Co branding, as opposed to Manly Man Co.
I thought this was a really unique gift. I’ve loved jerky for a long time, and have never seen anything like this. The actual meat was a high-quality product. Plus, long after the jerky’s gone, you’ll still have the pint glass.
I enjoyed all the flavors, with hot being my favorite. Don’t worry, it’s not that hot (my 9-year old was fine). Currently, the Beef Jerky Bouquet is available for $59 on the Manly Man Co website.
