I'm always on the go. Dance class, speech, playgroup, you name it. Most day's we're out the door by 10am.
Now, I've always been more of a savory snacker than a sweet lover, and was raised to know that protein was an important part of a healthy diet instead of relying on carbohydrates only.
However, most proteins seem to be perishable and are hard to pack for on-the-go purposes, right? Well, Hormel® has come up with a brand NEW solution for a high protein snack that's perfect for traveling.
Hormel® REV® Meat Snack Mix, comes in five different varieties and includes real meat, cheese, pita chips, crackers and/or pretzels.
I love snacks with variety, so when I tried the Hormel® REV® Meat Snack Mix in Turkey Ranch flavor and saw it had pita chips, ranch seasoned breadsticks AND smoked turkey pieces I was excited to try them.
It totally lived up to my expectations at offering me not just one monotonous snacking experience, but since there were a bunch of different snacks to try within one cup, it made me come back for more.
Reasons to Try Hormel® REV® Meat Snack Mix
- They pack a walloping 8-12 grams of protein in each container
- Only 200-230 calories
- ZERO grams of trans fat
- Better alternative than chips or candy for quick snacking on the go
- Made with real meat
- Perfect for transporting in a gym bag, purse or kid's backpack
Hormel® REV® Meat Snack Mix comes in the following flavors:
- Pepperoni Pizza*
- Spicy BBQ and Bacon
- Honey Mustard Bacon
- Turkey Ranch
- Pepperoni & Cheese
I was sent (3) varieties to sample - Turkey Ranch, Pepperoni Pizza and Spicy BBQ & Bacon.
*My favorite was the Pepperoni Pizza with cheese crackers & parmesan, tomato herb bagel chips and dried pepperoni pieces.
Now, you're probably wondering how they package meat to be shelf stable. Well it's a freeze-dried sort of meat, not perishable like a pepperoni from the refrigerator section - very crunchy, kind of like a chip. For having so many grams of protein, I found it to be pretty tasty!
McKinney Mommas' Note:
Please be careful when serving to younger children, as my toddler while loving the snack cup, had a very difficult time chewing the meat pieces, especially from the Turkey Ranch variety.
