Oh, deer! I think I have a new favorite snack stick. Salty, savory, truly mouthwatering. This is primal to the max: venison, seasoned with cracked pepper and salt, blended with beef for optimal taste, all portable and easy for your busy day. You can't get anything better in any gas station: in fact, the convenience store versions of this are so full of weird ingredients you can barely find the meat. Chomps has you covered, in times of hunger or just between-event hangries. Grab a few for your bag and make sure you travel prepared and ready for your Whole30 and life in general. ~
For the true, true stories behind this incredible foodstuff, read on.
In the world of paleo-friendly and primal snacks, it doesn't get much more authentic than jerky. Ok, true, yes, you can just eat completely raw meat while rooting through a honeycomb, but that's a bit messy. Perishable, too. Jerky it is, then. But many brands of jerky are pretty difficult to deal with. Overly chewy, stringy, dry . . . it is a lot of WORK. Compare that to the ease of the gas station convenience meat stick, all wrapped up to go and easy to tear into, easy to bite and snap down on with your chompers. They are kind of tasty, too, all that salt just making you brain buzz. Until you turn over the label and read the ingredients, printed in microscopic font and reading like Moby Dick. Yikes! Even if there is actual meat in those things, you'll also see hydrolyzed soy, wheat proteins, corn syrup.... no, thank you.
But today, feast your chompers on Chomps: the paleo foodie's 'slim jim'. Enjoy the wild taste of grass-fed Venison, with a punch of sea salt and pepper. Each bite has that snap, each mouth-watering chew has the tang, the umami, the meatiness we deserve and demand from grass-fed animals. That's right—grass-fed is where it's at. From New Zealand to your mouth, this venison is combined with grass-fed beef, along with the barest of seasonings like garlic and pepper to let you taste all the goodness without interference. It is wrapped up in an all-natural collagen casing. Simple, but not plain. That's the way I like it.

Here are some of the amazing ingredients in Chomps Snack Sticks:
Grass Fed Beef
Sometimes called nature's best-tasting multivitamin, beef is not only one of the most protein-rich foods you can eat, but it’s insanely nutritious in other ways. It’s extremely high in zinc, vitamin B12, selenium, iron, vitamin B6, phosphorus, niacin, potassium, and riboflavin. Grass-fed beef contains more heart-healthy omega-3 fats, more vitamins A and E, higher levels of antioxidants, and up to seven times the beta-carotene of grain-fed. Grass-fed beef also contains high amounts of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), thought by many to prevent cancer. It’s also kinder on cattle, and on the environment.
Grass Fed Vension
Compared to beef, venison is a jam packed nutritional powerhouse. Not that there's anything wrong with beef, especially grass-fed and organic. But venison has higher niacin and iron than beef, while still containing all the usual goodies found in red meats: zinc, selenium, B12, B6, Thiamin, and a bunch more.
How to consume Chomps Snack Sticks:
It's meat. It's portable. It's (mostly) non-perishable. Decide your favorite way to chomp on some Chomps:
- That long airport layover with nothing in sight but vending machines and fast food
- Ditto, on the plane, with nothing but crackers and "snack packs"
- Gym bag, before a workout.
- Car, after a workout.
- Before hitting the dubiously-healthy holiday pot luck spread
- When one arm is full of kid and the other arm isn't feeling up to firing up the stove.
- 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 100% Grass Fed Snack Sticks! If you're looking for great tasting, Gluten Free, Sugar Free, Paleo Friendly, healthy snacks, you've come to the right place!"
