I've been so busy enjoying my latest review product, I forgot to post the actual review!
I was sent a big package of Simply Snackin protein snacks (beef and chicken sticks) to try out recently:
And try them I did. When I could wrangle them away from my 2 year old, that is:
He loooooves jerky and especially loved the Simply Snackin sticks.
Here's a little about Simply Snackin, from their web site:
"High protein, low calorie Simply Snackin gourmet dried meat snacks are the preferred choice of on-the-go people leading or adopting active, healthy lifestyles. Although often referred to as "jerky," Simply Snackin products deliver an experience unlike any conventional jerky -- bite after bite of moist, lean, savory chicken breast or beef sirloin is paired with flavorful mangos, apples, blueberries and other artisan ingredients."
To that, I say, "You write the truth, Simply Snackin web site people."
I am a fan. The flavor combinations are great: Sirloin with cranberries and blueberries, chicken with mango and papaya, sirloin with pineapple. And the texture is, in my opinion, superior and easier to eat than regular jerky.
Now, please know that I am a jerky fan. There is almost always jerky in my pantry and the whole family loves the stuff. So, in some ways, I was primed to love Simply Snackin. But the opposite is true as well. As a jerky lover, I could have been turned off by the ways in which it is different from jerky.
I wasn't turned off at all.
Here's what I love:
- The convenience of the individually wrapped sticks (so easy to keep in my bag!)
- The simple ingredients list
- The low (for jerky type snacks) sodium
- The texture
- The taste
- The taste
- The taste
It's true. I love the taste!
My favorite flavor? Dried Beef Sirloin with Cranberries and Blueberries. No question.
So, I'm sure you're thinking, "OK, Happy Runner, it's all well and good for you to write about how much you love your free beef snacks. But do you love them enough to spend your own money on them?"
Good question, friend. Glad you asked.
And my answer is, yes. Yes, I do. In fact, I already have. I ordered up the beef assortment, 24 pieces. I only wish I had ordered 48. Live and learn, live and learn . . .
You can treat yourself to some Simply Snackin by ordering on their web site, too.
Have you tried Simply Snackin? What did you think?
Thanks for stopping by!
