There’s a new subscription box company in town serving up a wide variety of geeky goods every month.
Narwhal Bacon Box is similar to other subscription box companies in that it ships out a monthly box packed with products for its target audience. But unlike other box companies targeting geeks, this company is completely Internet focused.
“We’re An Internet-Centric, Viral Product, Geek Subscription Box Company. That’s really the easiest way to describe Narwhal Bacon Box,” explains founder Chase Williams.
So what products go in an “Internet-centric” box?
Every month we come up with a truly geektastic theme like reddit Startups, Kickstarter Darlings, Office Warfare, Science Mayhem, Lifehack Loot, and Break the Bank, and we spend hundreds of hours curating appropriate products for that theme. Our team rules out the worst of the best and we settle on 5-8 items for that month’s specific box.
The company believes it is different enough from other nerd boxes out there because the products it ships to subscribers have already been approved by the Internet community. “They’ve gone viral on popular websites, spawned memes, or caught the attention of the main stream media,” details Williams.
This sounds like a pretty cool idea. And there’s definitely an audience for all sorts of Internet geekery. But what’s up with the name?
I asked Williams to explain the unusual company name to me:
We often get asked why we chose the name Narwhal Bacon Box, and we would like to clear a few things up – Yes, the infamous question “When does the narwhal bacon” absolutely was inspirational to our naming process but, it isn’t the only reason. Like narwhals in the sea, we’re unique. We’re the only Internet geek subscription box on the planet (at the moment). Bacon? Yes, “bacon!” The word itself isn’t meant to mean actual bacon but, rather anything that’s just plain awesome … Narwhal Bacon Box, the only box of Internet awesomeness (at least in this solar system).
