A while back, Simply Snackin offered to send me some of their meat snacks to try. I took them up on their offer and really enjoyed the flavors. I’m your typical on-the-go mom. I always have snacks in my bag because hunger doesn’t necessarily follow the schedule I set out for it. I found the meat snacks to be the perfect thing to always have with me. At only 60 calories, with a wallop of protein, they were perfect when I got hungry.
But you know when they really cam in handy? When I was running the five half marathons. I found that about two hours after lunch, my blood sugar plummeted suddenly. Every.single.day. Ask Beer Geek. I’d start snapping at him about whatever we were doing and then I’d suddenly realize I was starving. Invariably, we were in the middle of nowhere with no food options within an hour’s drive. Thankfully, Simply Snackin had sent me some more snacks and I’d tossed them in when I was packing. We’d each eat one and then we could be civil again.
Here’s what Simply Snackin has to say about their product:
Simply Snackin is a naturally delicious line of gourmet meat snacks with absolutely no artificial ingredients. Made with only the finest ingredients, Simply Snackin is perfect for the healthy-minded, on-the-go snack lover looking for a delicious and nutritious low calorie option that offers lean protein without any artificial flavorings, colorings, chemicals, nitrites or fillers.
Simply Snackin combines the best quality meats and poultry with all-natural ingredients to create taste sensations that redefine the dried meat category. Tne flavorful snacks combine lean sirloin or whole chicken breasts with dried fruits such as apples, cranberries, blueberries and pineapples or black beans and vegetables like jalapenos and shallots. The diced fruits and vegetables provide nutrients, moisture and natural flavor to make the meats nutritious, tender and tasty. Once the all-natural seasonings are added, the unique blends are slow roasted at a low temperature over a long period of time to create unique flavor fusions that nourish the body as they satisfy the palate.
I’m kind of addicted to the beef ones. Something about beef and fruit combined is simply amazing.
Want to try your own? Simply Snackin has offered to send a sample pack to one of my readers. (I only caution you that you may find yourself addicted and feel the need to justify an order of 150 of them. Not that I’d know anything about that…)
