Curated and considered for the modern primal life

Chomps Snack Sticks, Kickin' Chicken

Don't be like me: don't fall for road trip temptations by throwing your normally-healthy eating out the car window by using a long drive as excuse to eat fun cheat foods from the gas station. We can do better! We can stock the car with CHOMPS and make sure that the snack food in our mouth is sustainable, paleo-friendly, and road-worthy. With a Kickin' Chicken snack stick in your fist, that cup of convenience coffee is the other thing to get you mental engine revving while you motor to the next destination. Just beware the cappuccino machine: it's dangerously tempting. Chomps is the win-win. 

For the true, true stories behind this incredible foodstuff, read on.

Food doesn't get much more primal than dried meats. Ok, true, sure, you could just eat completely raw meat while hanging on to a fresh honeycomb, but that's a bit messy. Perishable, too. But what about processed food? Is "processed" food OK to eat? Honestly, it depends on what you mean by processing. For Chomps snack sticks, the method is the means to get to nutrition and great taste all at once. In this Kickin' Chicken flavor, all that is done is a combination of traditional curing techniques: some lactic acid, some salt, and some spices, and the recipe is perfect. Each stick is balanced, delicious, and oh-so-good for you. 

This Kickin' Chicken flavor is whoa-oh-oh good and amazing. Like a boneless spicy chicken wing without any of that weird fatty stuff. Snap into each bite—just like one of those "slim" jerkies—and chomp your way to a smile. There's just enough spice in here to make things interesting but not so much you'll need a Big Gulp along the way. Just right is the flavor balance: a gateway to zing with just a bit of heat. First, the texture: each bite has that snap; each mouth-watering chew has the tang, the umami, the meatiness we deserve and demand. Even the casing is all-natural collagen. But the flavor? There's a nice bit of spice without threatening to set off any alarms. If spice ain't your thing, these are not over the top, but neither are they tame. And for those that love to crank up the volume on fiery food, this is a nice touch of warmth. That's the way I like it.

Here's what Chomps has to say about their commitment to quality: "By going back to basics, we cook up high quality jerky snacks than you can enjoy anytime, guilt-free.

Our snack sticks have no MSG or nitrates, no fillers, no binders, and no added preservatives. Because we use celery juice to make our jerky stay fresh, you needn’t worry about synthetic preservation ingredients that could put your health at risk. Additionally, our jerky sticks have less salt than most of those made by other commercial manufacturers."

It's meat. It's portable. It's (mostly) non-perishable. Decide your favorite way to chomp on some Chomps:

  1. That long airport layover with nothing in sight but expensive vending machines and fast food
  2. Ditto, on the plane, with nothing but crackers and "snack packs"
  3. Gym bag, before a workout.
  4. Car, after a workout.
  5. Before hitting the dubiously-healthy holiday pot luck spread
  6. When one arm is full of kid and the other arm isn't feeling up to firing up the stove.
  7. And on, and on.... anytime you're busy and feeling a bit empty.

About Chomps and the company, in their own words

"I grew up eating tons of Slim Jims. I don’t know what I was thinking, but I loved those things. As I got older, I realized that they were far from healthy, with all of their artificial additives and preservatives. I decided I wanted to create a healthy grass-fed version of those jerky snacks, without all of the added garbage. That’s how Chomps was born. Once I tasted the first Chomps Snack Sticks, I knew I had winning recipe. In replacing all of the gluten and sugars with lean proteins, vegetables, fruit, and healthy fats, I was able to create a delicious and nutritious beef jerky that I could enjoy with zero guilt.

The World's Best Snack Sticks! If you're looking for great tasting, Gluten Free, Sugar Free, Paleo Friendly, healthy snacks, you've come to the right place!"
