Jerky is highly portable, compact, shelf-stable, and rich in protein. Unfortunately, most jerky is made from factory farmed meat laced with growth-promoting hormone and antibiotic residues, preservatives, additives, such as hydrogented fats and oils, high fructose corn syrup and other sweeteners, fillers, synthetic, carcinogenic colorings (most commercial snack sticks include red dye #3 in their ingredient lists).
As a cancer-survivor and conscious eater, Nick is particular about what goes into the products he makes, eats, and sells. Nick’s Sticks are made with 100% grass-fed beef or free-range turkey (you choose the flavor you want) and seasoned with Redmond Real Salt, an organic, pink-colored sea salt that contains more than 50 natural trace minerals, including iodine. (Most table salts and “sea salts” have processed at high heat, bleached, and stripped of all of their minerals.)
Nick’s Sticks come packed in convenient, ready-to-eat portions. Each 1.7 ounce package contains two sticks and provides 10 grams of protein. Two of his Turkey Snack Sticks provide 2.5 grams of fat and wo of Beef Sticks contain 7.5 grams of naturally occurring fat. Both flavors are made without added sugars, a rarity among commercial snack sticks and other jerky products. They’re also lower in sodium than most brands. The only nitrates they contain are those that naturally occur in sea salt and celery juice.
Nick’s Sticks are gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, and free of soy, corn, tree nuts, peanuts, eggs, and other commonly allergenic foods.
Food from a Trusted Source
Forget anonymous food from factory farms. I encourage you to support small farmers whenever you can. When you buy Nick’s Sticks you support an old-fashioned farm and get good, clean food in return. Nick Wallace, one of the founders of Wallace Farms, a 100% grass-fed cattle farm located in Keystone, Iowa, continues the tradition started by his great grandfather in 1894. He works the fields (wearing shorts) and uses practices that support the health of people, plants, animals, and the environment. When you buy Nick’s Snack Sticks, you’re supporting many great causes.
Nick’s company donates 5% of their net profits to The Fisher House Foundation, an organization that provides a home away from home for military families so they can be closed to loved ones during hospitalization for illness, injury, or disease.
Whether you want healthy snacks for work, when hiking, camping, backpacking, going to the movies, or hanging around the house, Nick’s Sticks are a great choice. They make great gifts, whether you’re stuffing stockings for the holidays or gift bags for birthdays, anniversaries, graduation, Halloween, or other holidays and celebrations, Nick’s Sticks make a great go-to item.
I liked the flavor, the quality ingredients, the convenience, the packaging, and knowing that the jerky came from a small family farm that supports healthy principles and practices.
