I grew up eating tons of Slim Jims. I don’t know what I was thinking, but I loved those things. As I got older, I realized that they were far from healthy, with all of their artificial additives and preservatives. I decided I wanted to create a healthy grass-fed version of those jerky snacks, without all of the added garbage. That’s how Chomps was born. Once I tasted the first Chomps Snack Sticks, I knew I had a winning recipe. In replacing all of the gluten and sugars with lean proteins, vegetables, fruit, and healthy fats, I was able to create a delicious and nutritious beef jerky that I could enjoy with zero guilt.
Many others have discovered the Chomps difference as well. Check out some of the testimonials below to learn about how real people have managed to transition to healthier diets and lifestyles with our help.
“They kind of look like Slim Jim bars, but that's where the resemblance ends. They are made from 100% Grass-fed beef, are free of any synthetic nitrates, nitrites, or MSG, are gluten-free, Whole30 approved, and are shelf stable for an entire year! I feel totally good about buying these, eating them, and feeding them to my family.”

“Healthy, high-quality protein is hard to come by when you're on the road or enjoying the great outdoors. That's why we love having Chomps as a member of our Whole30 Approved family. Their 100% grass-fed beef sticks are easy to throw into a hiking pack, your carry-on, or a beach tote, and now come in three delicious flavors with no added sugar or preservatives.”
- Melissa Hartwig, a New York Times bestselling author and the co-founder of the Whole30 program
“Overall, Chomps are awesome snacks for athletes. Hoppin’ Jalapeño: This variety is in the upper echelon of flavor in the healthy meat snack department. The snack stick is juicy and spicy. It has a great balance of spices and savory flavors that get distributed across the palate by the taste-boosting fats. This is one delicious snack, especially for jalapeño fans like me.”
