Chomp on Chomps!


It’s no secret that there is a lot of junk food lust in my past. Yes, my mom and dad were excellent cooks and taught me my way around the kitchen. Yes, we ate dinner together as a family almost every night – around 5:00 p.m. – until I graduated from high school. And yes, our meals usually included meat, vegetables, and salad (along with rice!).

But I also snarfed my way through plenty of frozen pizza, nacho cheese Doritos, and Slim Jims. I really loved a Slim Jim. Both the greasy, spicy snack stick…


… and the drummer for my beloved Stray Cats.

When I stopped eating junky, packaged food, I said “goodbye” to Slim Jims forever.

But thanks to Chomps Snack Sticks, the spicy meat in a snappy stick form is back!


Made from 100% grass-fed beef – and Whole30 Approved – Chomps are portable protein power, and they taste really freakin’ good. Very flavorful, but not overly spicy, they taste like meat, without the overly-smoky flavor of jerky. They’re tender with a satisfying, crisp-to-the-bite exterior – and they are totally  junk free, gluten free, and sugar free. The recipe uses celery juice as a preservative, so no refrigeration necessary, and that also means the sticks are free of synthetics, antibiotics, nitrates, and nitrites.

Check out the ingredients:

  • grass-fed beef
  • water
  • salt
  • citric acide
  • black pepper
  • red pepper
  • garlic powder
  • coriander

… all stuffed in a collagen casing.

If you’re looking for an on-the-go protein source – or a way to relive the glory days of junk food indulgence, without the junk food – you should chomp on some Chomps!
