KANSAS CITY, MO. — Meat snack makers are branching out beyond beef jerky and innovating with a range of proteins, including poultry and premium meats.
Land O’Frost Inc. is expanding its Gone Rogue meat snacks brand with a new line of turkey bites. Made from all-natural turkey from American farms, Gone Rogue Turkey Bites are baked in small batches with a blend of spices and come in four flavors: sea salt and black pepper, Nashville Hot, maple brown sugar, and honey mustard. Each 1-oz serving contains 60 calories, 10 grams of protein, 1.5 grams of fat and 1 gram of carbs.
“We’re thrilled to expand Gone Rogue Snacks to offer more options and variety to those looking to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle,” said Candace M. Cage, brand manager at Land O’Frost. “Our snacks, both Turkey Bites and our High Protein Chicken Chips, are focused on delivering quality and purposeful protein in a casual way. As a consumer’s partner in snacking, we understand many people are busier than ever. Whether they’re on the go or at home, we’re determined to create the best way for consumers to manage energy and help them reach every goal.”
Veroni is rolling out a new snack line that combines charcuterie imported from Italy with Provolone cheese and Italian breadsticks or dried fruits. The snacks are packaged in 2-oz servings and come in four varieties: mild salami, Provolone and Italian breadsticks; Calabrese salami, Provolone and Italian breadsticks; mild salami, Provolone and dried cranberries; and mild salami, Provolone and dried apricots.
4505 Meats is debuting a new line of premium sausage snacks called 4505 Butcher’s Snacks. Made with 2 oz of humanely raised pork, the keto-certified, paleo-friendly and gluten-free meat sticks contain 18 to 24 grams of protein and come in three varieties: Original Recipe, Cheddar & Bacon and Red Hot.
"I'm more of a butcher than a businessperson," said Ryan Farr, founder and chef of the 4505 Burgers & BBQ restaurant in San Francisco. "I knew if 4505 was going to offer a meat snack, it had to be more sausage than stick. Butcher's Snacks are inspired by my favorite recipes, and, as a big sausage nerd, I am proud to offer these delicious Butcher's Snacks to my fellow meat lovers.”
