Trail snacks are not my forté. I need them and I usually devour some while out on the trail. I would like to say that I make lovely lunches and snacks at home but really, I have a large Tupperware tote in my cabinet (or in my shed) full of miscellaneous bars, tuna packets, and some single serve powdered drink mixes and tablets that I can just grab and shove in my backpack. I am kind of picky about what I choose to eat though and try to allot my (few) dollars towards natural foods whenever possible.
At Winter Outdoor Retailer, I met Todd of Field Trip Jerky. Field Trip doesn’t use corn syrup as a sweetener (common in many jerky products), it’s gluten free, and delicious. The folks at Field Trip were kind enough to send me a package of their different flavors to sample and truthfully, I liked them all.
They make both beef and turkey jerky. I loved the flavor of the Crushed Chiles Turkey Jerky (ummm…and I would love it in beef, hinthint) and enjoyed the Cracked Pepper as well.
The packages are resealable which I really appreciate when I just want a little something to chew on but don’t want to eat the whole package. (If you open one with a friend around though, don’t expect to have any to put away.)
As I mentioned before, the folks at Field Trip do it right. Check out their ingredients in their scrumptious Roasted Sesame:
Field Trip Jerky provided me with jerky for sampling but all opinions are my own. Some links in this post are affiliate links that help support 3Up Adventures.
