Some of our readers have been asking us why we’ve overlooked beef jerky as a low carb snack here at Glucoholic.com. There are actually quite a few low carb staples that we love and want to bring to you, but have struggled with how to make them sexy enough. Beef jerky is one of them. Cheese is another. Anyone who knows anything about maintaining a low carb diet can enumerate several of these staples off the top of their heads, and we’ve been afraid reviewing any of these products would lead to a resounding “duh.” We figured reviewing products like these would be like presenting the Oscar for “Best Tree in a Motion Picture.” That is, until now. Jack Link’s Flamin’ Buffalo Chicken Nuggets are neither beef nor boring. These bite-sized beauties skin the hide off of any beef jerky we’ve ever had.
The first bite of these Jergets™ starts off mild and chewy. As you continue to chew you are overwhelmed by the buffalo sauce’s flavor – this stuff has some kick! You can definitely recognize the difference between the chicken and most beef flavors as well. These nuggets don’t seem to have nearly as much salt as most beef jerky. There’s a heavy quality to each nugget that leaves you feeling like you’ve eaten something more substantial than you really did. This attribute makes these nuggets an excellent low carb snack for when you’re really craving food. In our testing we never needed more than one nugget to feel satisfied, even though the serving size is a whole ounce. The resealable bag insures that your chicken is fresh when you need it. If you’re a beef jerky fan please give Jack Link’s Flamin’ Buffalo Chicken Nuggets a try!
