Now for something completely different. I don’t talk about food very often but sometimes there is a snack worth talking about.
Ever so often I work with Brand Backer on makeup reviews but I saw an opportunity on there to review Chomps, an organic beef jerky snack and I do love some beef jerky so I was like “sign me up!” I try not to eat jerky very often because of the crap ingredients but since these are organic with no nitrates or preservatives I was all for it. In fact they use celery juice to increase shelf life.
They came in the mail yesterday and even though I’d just had breakfast, my husband and I ripped into them to try. Of course, my dog Pumpkin came running when she caught a whiff of jerky.
We tried the original flavor first. Not bad. The flavor was vaguely spicy with a rich beef flavor. The texture was great compared to slim jims. Not greasy at all but juicy. My husband really liked this flavor. He’s not a fan of spicy stuff.
Made from 100% grass-fed beef, they’re loaded with 9 grams of protein, and are sugar and gluten free. Our Original Flavor Chomps Snack Sticks feature the same savory taste that first made us popular: slightly smoky, slightly spicy. The taste is sure to make every snack time a mouthwatering experience.
Unlike most mainstream beef jerky snacks, Chomps aren’t stuffed with additives that could be found in Frankenstein’s lab – just hearty, familiar, farm-fresh ingredients. That’s right: no artificial nitrates or nitrites, no antibiotics, no synthetics. This makes these paleo-friendly bites ideal additions to any healthy diet.
Our non-GMO beef is sourced from New Zealand, where healthy cows are grazed on live vegetation all year long, as opposed to the nutrient-deprived hay that cattle raised in more seasonal climates are forced to feed on during colder seasons. Our cows are never sent to feedlots. The beef is 100% Grass-Fed AND Grass-Finished, plus it’s free of all antibiotics and hormones.
Ingredients:100% Grass-Fed Beef, Water, Salt, Citric Acid, Celery Juice, Black Pepper, Red Pepper, Garlic Powder, Coriander, Stuffed in a Collagen Casing.
Next up was the Crackin Cran. This flavor though very spicy is my favorite. It’s infused with dried cranberries and peppers. Sounds odd but somehow was super delicious. I liked the sweetness from the cranberries mixed with the spice. Much yum.
Satisfy your hunger with the sweet and spicy goodness of Chomps’ newest flavor: Crankin’ Cran. We’ve built upon our original snack stick recipe by adding a blend of ingredients that brings on a whole new dimension of flavor. Hot habanero peppers give an extra spicy, savory base flavor, which is enhanced by the addition of sweet and tangy dried cranberries. With 5 of these paleo-friendly snacks in a pack, you’ll have plenty to spice up your days. (really, these are very spicy!)
Ingredients: 100% Grass-Fed Beef, Habanero Peppers, Cranberries, Water, Sea Salt, Citric Acid,Celery Juice, Black Pepper, Red Pepper, Garlic Powder,Coriander, Stuffed in a Collagen Casing
Lastly, I tried the Hoppin Jalapeño . I expected this flavor to be very spicy but was pleasantly surprised that it was just right. More savory rather than hot with a jalapeño flavor. I personally like the taste of jalapeños so this flavor was also a win for me. They’re the perfect go between. A little spice and flavor but calm enough to just eat with out your mouth burning.
Our Hoppin’ Jalapeno Flavor Chomps Snack Sticks are made from 100% grass-fed beef. They’re loaded with 9 grams of protein, and free of both gluten and sugar. You won’t find a trace of anything that you couldn’t already find on your Grandpappy’s farm: the ingredients in Chomps are all-natural, and you don’t need more than two hands to count them! No artificial nitrates or nitrites, no antibiotics, and no synthetics. Just deliciousness.
Ingredients:100% Grass-Fed Beef, Jalapeno Peppers, Water, Salt, Citric Acid, Celery Juice, Black Pepper, Red Pepper, Garlic Powder, Coriander, Stuffed in a Collagen Casing.
The packaging is good too, individually vacuum sealed makes them great for throwing in your bag. My husband is a fan of that too since he packs a lunch most days for work and always needs snack to bring with him. He works 12 hour shifts doing manual labor so he needs a healthy snack like these too keep his energy up.
Over all, I’m impressed. It’s a win in my book.

Please note, even though I was given these to review the opinions are my own. If I didn’t like them I wouldn’t review them at all.
