Simply Snackin review and giveaway

I recently saw a tweet from fellow blogger Lindsey, about a company that was looking for some people to try their gourmet dried meat snacks. I love free stuff and I love meat, so I was there.

I then completely forgot about this until I came home one day to a package from Simply Snackin, which contained the following.



The following is taken from their website.

Redefine How You Snack

High protein, low calorie Simply Snackin® gourmet dried meat snacks are the preferred choice of on-the-go people leading or adopting active, healthy lifestyles.
Although often referred to as “jerky,” Simply Snackin products deliver an experience unlike any conventional jerky — bite after bite of moist, lean, savory chicken breast or beef sirloin is paired with flavorful mangos, apples, blueberries and other artisan ingredients.
Simply put, Simply Snackin is redefining how you snack.

At first when I opened the package and read the flavors I was a bit disheartened as I wasn't sure I would like them, but at the same time I didn't want my husband to eat them all!! I tried the Chicken breast with Italian seasoning and Romano. Wow! It was love at first bite. So of course I had to try another, I received a package containing 12 snacks, and they didn't last long especially once my husband discovered them. He is on a low carb diet and they are all 5g carbs or less. Some of them are even gluten free. They are all 60 calories and contain 0.5g of fat or less, and between 8 and 11g of protein.

They currently have six flavors - not sure if they plan to do more in the future.
Beef Sirloin with Apples and Cherries
Beef Sirloin with Cranberries and Blueberries
Teriyaki Beef Sirloin with Pineapples
Chicken Breast with Black Bean Salsa
Chicken Breast with Italian Seasoning and Romano
Teriyaki Chicken Breast with Mango and Papaya

I think out of all the flavors the Beef Sirloin with Apples and Cherries and the Chicken Breast with Italian Seasoning and Romano were my favorite, but I actually loved them all and have already placed an order for another batch.

Oh, nearly forgot the best part, for those of you following Weight Watchers they are only 1PP, so a great snack to grab on the go, they come individually packaged, so no worry about dividing them into portions.

For the month of January 2013, they are offering you all 10% off your order - just use code SSJAN2013 at the checkout.

Come back and let me know what you think and what your favorite flavors are.

  1. I have to admit, I am not sure if I would like these, but willing to give them a try. I will take your word on the best flavor and go with the beef sirloin with apples and cherries. I love the 1 PP value for these!

  4. I think I'd like the chicken ones, if my kids gave me a chance to eat them. I can't eat beef so would be hopeful chicken would be good.

    1. I imagine the kids will love them, the chicken ones are just as good as the beef ones - they don't last long in our house!
