Stocking Stuffing Idea – First Ever Trail Mix with Beef Bites

Seeking for some holiday snacks? Let do a healthy way in this Christmas. For the people who love chocolate, nuts and meats! I have an perfect idea for them to eat all these treats in one package. It is Stryve Biltong, the #1 brand in beef biltong, the high protein, low sugar alternative to jerky!

Usually trail mix can’t have meat snacks in it because it tends to get soggy when mixed in, so this groundbreaking mix of nuts and seeds is a first-of-its kind, coming in Original, Jalapeño and Dark Chocolate flavors.

Last month, Stryve Biltong, the leader in beef biltong snacks, announced the launch of the first ever Trail Mix with Beef Biltong in the United States.  This groundbreaking snack is part of Stryve’s robust innovation pipeline that delivers on the consumer desire for more snack options that are healthy, convenient and taste great.

Stryve Trail Mix with Beef Biltong is a blend of tender, air dried beef biltong mixed with nuts and seeds and comes in Original, Jalapeño and Dark Chocolate flavors. Unlike most trail mixes, Stryve’s trail mix contains twenty grams of protein, only two grams of sugar (excluding the chocolate flavor), is all natural and contains nothing artificial.  In addition, Stryve Trail Mix with Beef Biltong is allergy and paleo diet friendly as it does not contain peanuts.  The new line will launch exclusively at Army Airforce Exchange Service (AAFES) locations before debuting at other military bases, retail locations, and online later this year.

2018 has been a huge year for Stryve Biltong which has rapidly expanded distribution, enhanced production capability with a newly completed, state of the art production facility and launched biltong innovation.  Former NFL player Gabe Carimi and Stryve Biltong CEO stated, “We couldn’t be more excited about the launch of Stryve Trail Mix with Beef Biltong.  People continue to tell us they struggle to find healthy, all natural and convenient snacks that curb their cravings and leave them satisfied.  Stryve Trail Mix with Beef Biltong is an answer to that struggle as it is high in protein, low in sugar, all natural and tastes amazing.”  He continued, “The launch of our trail mix is another way we are fulfilling our brand mission to help people achieve their fitness goals by delivering the greatest high protein, low sugar snack you can find, biltong.”

At Home Pet Spa Treatment with Kibble Pet


Tomorrow is the day of Cami’s TPLO surgery on her right knee! We went back and forth last 7 months and we finally decided to do this surgery for her. She has been limping badly after running and playing and the dr confirmed that it is time. So in anticipation for her 12 week at home recovery, I have been pampering her to the max before the big day. I took her to the Strip for shopping! We went to Anthropologie and sniffed the fake snow and got lots of pets from everyone.

And then we went to the park for a nice sunny stroll. Cami met a few new friends and had a little run, then limped her way back to the car. After a short nap, I gave her the full spa treatment! Ear cleaning, paw pedicure, nose moisturizing and a full bath with shampoo and conditioner from Kibble Pet. The bath was heavenly and she loved every moment of it. Except for the part her head got wet, she doesn’t like that so much. So I’ll just use a washcloth for her face next time.
