Simply Snackin Jerky Review + Giveaway

Simple Snackin Giveaway | Domesticated Academic

Lindsay over at the Lean Green Bean gave me the hookup on a review for Simply Snackin–Healthy Gourmet Meat Snack AKA: beef and chicken jerky. I was totally excited to do this because we grew up on meat snack AKA jerky and make our own. I’ve eaten a lot of jerky in my day of many meat variations so chicken jerky was very appealing for me to try.

The packages came and each bag was full of jerky samples! Thanks for being so generous! The nutrition information is clearly labeled so there’s no gray area about what you’re eating. The packages are easy open for a klutz like me or someone who’s trying to open one in the car. The sodium is not overpowering, which is sometimes the case in many jerky products I’ve tried and the flavor was also not overpowering.

These were excellent and I’m so glad I was able to work with this company. They are a rare find in a world of over marketed, over processed foods that ‘claim’ to be healthy. These folks are the REAL DEAL!

  1. My favorite go-to snack at work is usually fruit. I try to keep apples and pears on my desk so I have them. On-the-go or in a hurry I like crunchy things like nuts, trail mix or granola. I usually have at least one or two crunchy options withing reaching distance.

  3. Granola bars.. Although not always the healthiest, it is usually quickest and easiest option. I like to snack on fruit too, but some of it is too messy if I’m on the go.
