At the recent Sweets & Snacks Expo 2017, Chef's Cut Real Jerky introduced one of its newest products, which pairs jerky and cheese. These Protein Packs include combinations of Smoked Beef Original Recipe and Cheddar Cheese and Smoked Turkey Teriyaki with Pepper Jack Cheese, with the 1.5-ounce packs offering about 16 to 17 grams of protein with each serving.
Since the cheese in the snack packs is dehydrated, the packs are shelf-stable products that are ideal for on-the-go snacking.
Other jerky snack producers like Oberto and Tanka have also released snack sets that pair meat with trail mix. Similarly, a number of snack brands are also releasing assorted snack sets that pair nuts, chocolate and cheese as satiating, well-balanced snacks.
