Review: Simply Snackin’ Jerky!

As much as I would love to say I eat real, whole foods 100% of the time, the reality is that life is rarely that perfect. Sometimes it is much easier to just have a grab-and-go type of snack for situations like if you are running late for work in the morning, if you need a quick pop of protein post workout, or if you are just hungry and want an extra snack! Simply Snackin’ has created a unique jerky that can satisfy all those needs!

Who is Simply Snackin’?

Based out of Wisconsin, Simply Snackin’ strives to provide a, “higher quality, nutritious, convenient meat snack that didn’t use fillers, chemicals or low-quality ingredients.” Rather than following the traditional jerky, they use a variety of natural flavors to create a unique treat.

I had an opportunity to sample a few different varieties, in both chicken and beef flavors. One of the unique aspects of this line of jerky is that all but two flavors combine meats and fruits, which is something that was new to me. Of the samples that I tried, my most favorite is the Chicken Breast with Italian Seasoning and Romano, one of the two without fruit. Although I do understand the reason for incorporating fruits and meats into one product, my taste buds prefer the more traditional flavors.

I love that the company shows all nutritional information for each of their products offered on their site, plus a picture of the product. There are also reviews for each item on the site so you can see what others have thought of the products prior to buying! Their website is also very user-friendly, with easy to access contact information, product listing, and customer testimonials.

A pack of 12 beef or chicken jerky will run you $17.28 plus shipping costs, so less than $2 a stick for the all-natural treat. You have the option of ordering all of one flavor, a variety pack of all beef, all chicken, a combination of both, or a variety pack of gluten-free options!

Simply Snackin’ Jerky Varieties:

Beef Sirloin with Apples & Cherries

Beef Sirloin with Cranberries & Blueberries

Teriyaki Beef Sirloin with Pineapples

Chicken Breast with Black Bean Salsa

Chicken Breast with Italian Seasoning & Romano

Teriyaki Chicken Breast with Mango & Papaya

Edit: Maureen at Simply Snackin’ has offered my readers a discount for the month of February!! If you use code

Do you turn to on-the-go-snacks when in a pinch? Have you ever combined meat and fruit??

Disclaimer: Simply Snackin’ sent me two samples of each of their varieties to review at no cost to me. I was not compensated for this post and all opinions expressed are my own.

Growing up in the Midwest (hello Wisconsin’s neighbor, Minnesota) I am a die hard beef jerky fanatic! I’m totally going to have to look these guys up because I have a hard time finding ‘clean’ jerky in the store. Great review, Jen!

Thanks, Gina! The fruity thing was a bit different, but the company seems great to deal with and totally honest about what they put in their products.

I used to love jerky. I just passed my one year vege-versary and so I will pass on this one. But more power to you on finding your best protein options!

mmm jerky! The teriyaki sounds delish! One of my guilty pleasures (since I have it less than once a year) is apple sausage! Pork + apple = yummy sausage! So yes I’ve had that combo before as well as sauteed pear and turkey bacon in oven roasted brussel sprouts 🙂

P.S. I always forget to check that I’m not a spam bot….
