Feeding my boys is a process these days, not to mention expensive. For one, they are always hungry. I mean ALWAYS hungry. They are growing boys and no longer can one box of macaroni and cheese feed the both of them. It’s like one box per kid. The more they grow, the more food they eat and since they are active boys, the more protein they need as well.
At any rate, Colorado has inspired our souls to get out into nature and experience new things. Vermont Smoke & Cure sent us some yummy meat sticks to help fuel us on our Colorado adventures. But since you know I’m into quality, please know this is not to be confused with the kind that says “mechanically separated chicken”. Doesn’t that sound appetizing? In fact, I had to know more about what that actually meant. So I looked it up on the USDA site: “Mechanically separated chicken is a paste-like and batter-like meat product produced by forcing bones with attached edible meat under high pressure through a sieve or similar device to separate the bone from the edible meat tissue.” That does not sound appetizing to me. Thankfully that’s not how Vermont Smoke & Cure makes their meat sticks.
Vermont Smoke & Cure meat sticks are made from the meaty portions of Beef, Pork or Turkey. The ingredients are simply, beef, pork or turkey, sea salt and various spices, cured and smoked to perfection before packaged for your enjoyment. With eight fun flavors, BBQ, Chipotle, Spicey Italian, Uncured Peppercorn, Ancho Pepper, Uncured bacon, Honey Mustard and Cracked Pepper, one or more of these meat sticks are sure to hit the spot. These meat sticks require no refrigeration which means it’s perfect for the hiking trail or camping trip.
Vermont Smoke & Cure packages their meat sticks in a few different ways. You can buy the full-length meat sticks in a package of 24, or buy the minis in packages of 6. I like the minis for the kids because they are perfect for packing in lunch boxes. What’s also neat is you can even set up auto delivery on their website, especially if you think it will be a regular in lunch boxes. I’ve also checked, and you can order these on Amazon too via prime! 😉
Jaydon was really excited to give these a try. These are two of his favorite flavors:
He likes the Spicy Italian and the Original.
I also love the Spicy Italian flavor. My husband says he likes the BBQ flavor. I think the boys would love if I packed these in their lunch boxes for school. I can’t believe school starts again in just three weeks! Until then, they will make great snacks for our up coming camping trip!
