As many of you know I have been working my way through the Chomps Variety pack. They sent over the standard variety pack for me to try out, which I really appreciate. I love trying out new flavors in this kind of format so that I can figure out which ones I really want to order in a full box.
Some of the flavors I’ve tried have been spectacular, others weren’t for me. Surprisingly, the ones I wasn’t as in love with turned out to be my babydoll’s favorite. Which doesn’t help with narrowing down the order, but it also means nothing goes to waste.
One of the things that I really like about Chomps is that if you look at their variety pack and think that there are just a couple on the list that you just will not eat, or if you know there are a few that you really like and can’t narrow it down to just one flavor, it isn’t a problem. You can build your own variety pack and choose the flavors that you put into it. There are several flavors but one that was a big hit all around was the Cranberry Habanero Beef stick. So we ordered a box. I was going to take a picture of the package when it came in but my babydoll got to the mail first and by the time I saw it not only was the outer packaging gone but several sticks were gone from the pack. Actually it looked oddly deflated. I think my baby doll took half of the pack to work with him.
But the variety pack I am working my way through has two left in it and today we are going for the Sea Salt Beef Stick. I’ll admit, I thought this was just going to be a bit of a salt bomb. It is slightly saltier than the other beef sticks, but it isn’t ‘salty’. The sea salt just enhances the beef flavor so that it just tastes extra beefy. I think I might actually like this more than the original beef stick. And I liked the original beef stick quite a lot. There is something that is just slightly more unctuous about this one. It has the same 9g of protein, 90 calories and zero sugar as are in the original. It is the same grass fed and finished beef. The same fat content.
Trust me, I checked.
Because the slightly extra salt content seems to have made the Chomps Sea Salt Beef Stick feel as though there is more to it. There isn’t, I compared labels. It is the same good stuff as the others. But it has a little extra umph that I really like. It has the snap to the casing that you would expect and the soft, but not mealy or mushy interior. I think that this is definitely going on my to be reordered list. I think it also replace the original beef stick. I still like the original, but this one just has a little bit more beefiness that I really enjoy. I especially like it because in the store I would have passed it over thinking that I didn’t want salty beef. Again, this is why I really like variety packs. Because sometimes, you just have to try it to find out if you like it or not.
