My other half announced a few months ago that he wanted to eat less carbs. I’m now finding it quite challenging to come up with meal ideas for the whole family as the boys’ favourite meals are pizza and pasta, so carb loaded. And since they tend to turn their nose up at a large piece of meat or fish, I usually stick to cooking what they enjoy. So my poor other half ends up more often than not with a plate of carbs. And if he chooses not to eat it, there is unlikely to be an alternative prepared.
So I was pleased to receive a box of high protein snack packs, free to review from Top Herd Snacks.
I received 1 each of the following varieties.
Tangy Tomato Beef Jerky
Smoky BBQ Beef Jerky
Sweet Pickle Beef Jerky
Honey Mustard Pork Jerky
Zesty Lemon Turkey Jerky
Chilli & Lime Turkey Jerky
Tomato & Paprika Skinny Salami
Chilli Pepper Skinny Salami
Son2 as usual was very skeptical and refused to taste them, but the rest of us tried every variety and gave them a thumbs up all round. I liked all of them, but my favourite is the Honey Mustard Pork Jerky. I did find that the salamis are very chewy, but there is a warning on the packet stating that the snack is only suitable for strong teeth. Meanwhile son1 liked both the salamis best, whilst my other half opted for the same as me – the Honey Mustard Pork Jerky.
These snacks are all high in protein ranging from about 38g – 50g per 100g depending on the variety. They are also gluten free and made from 100% natural ingredients. Another big plus point is that they are long-life products which do not need to be refrigerated.
At present, these snacks are only available to purchase via the Top Herd website, but they plan to be in supermarkets later this year. They are sold in packs of 8, either 8 of the same type or a mixed flavour bundle, currently retailing at £15.92 which equates to £1.99 for each individual 35g packet of jerky or 40g packet of salami. I highly recommend that you give them a try. I’ve already placed my first order and can say that checkout was simple.
And I’m hosting a rafflecopter competition to giveaway a mixed flavour bundle of 8 high protein snack packs courtesy of Top Herd to one lucky winner. A yummy prize.
