CHICAGO and NAPLES, Fla., Dec. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Move over, candy canes and jelly beans, and make room for a new stocking stuffer that's juicy, tasty, healthy and a perfect snack to help keep you on track with your 2016 New Years resolution. It's Chomps Snack Sticks, a nutritious and delicious twist on the traditional, unhealthy beef jerky products on supermarket shelves.
Peter Maldonado, founder and CEO of Chomps Snack Sticks, grew up eating and loving beef jerky. "Sure, they were tasty," Maldonado said, "but back then, nobody—including myself—wondered if those products were bad for them."
Over the years, Maldonado became health-conscious and ingredient-conscious, adopting a fit and healthy lifestyle that included a nutritious diet. He still craved beef jerky, but he knew that those highly processed products were made from inferior GMO-beef that is associated with serious health risks and filled with dangerous additives, growth hormones, antibiotics, and chemical preservatives. That's when he decided to develop a healthy version of his favorite beef snack.
After years of research and recipe testing, Chomps, the company, and Chomps, the product, were born in 2013. "We're very proud of Chomps snack sticks," Maldonado said, "because they are made of 100% safe and healthy ingredients. Each snack stick is packed with nine grams of protein and made from 100% grass-fed non-GMO Angus beef from New Zealand, farm-fresh ingredients, and a safe, natural preservative."
Additionally, Maldonado pointed out that Chomps are gluten free, soy free, hormone free, antibiotic free, dairy free, and MSG free "which means you're free to enjoy every mouthwatering bite without worrying about what's in it."
The Chomps product line has received rave reviews from happy, loyal customers. Chomps is paleo-friendly and has been recognized as a Whole30 approved product. Even though some Chomps customers have their favorite flavors, many love all three—Original, Crankin' Cran, and Hoppin' Jalapeno.
With holiday parties, Christmas and New Year's Resolutions just around the corner, customers can order Chomps as a gift for loved ones or add them as a delicious surprise to Santa's stocking stuffers. They're also the perfect go-to snack to keep in stock to help you keep on track with your health and fitness goals in 2016. Chomps are individually wrapped in easy-peel packaging. Order Chomps in 5, 24, or 144-count sizes.
"We are very grateful this holiday season that Chomps snack sticks are continuing to fill a fast-growing demand in the marketplace for healthy on-the-go beef snacks," said Maldonado."Happy Holidays from Team Chomps and we hope you all have an awesome—and healthy—New Year!"
