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.”

My First Christmas List – Gift For Him

Hi friends, I would love to share a news with you. I just got married in China and had my honeymoon in Philippines. Now I relocated from NYC to San Diego California! Why? Because my husband’ company transferred him from NYC office to San Diego office. Also because California is always our dream place. Now the dream comes true.

This is the view from a bar in our neighbor. Don’t be jealous of me if I tell you I still just wear a T-shirt and short today. Okay, finally I settled at La Jolla, San Diego and got time to work on the blog! The thing I want to work on is Christmas gift ideas. Because Thanksgiving is coming, we should grab the opportunity to get all the gifts in Black Friday big sales. The first several ideas are gifts for him, which I know it’s more difficult than “for her”. So I bring the solutions for you.

Distinctive black patent leather wraps Vince Camuto mens’ signature rectangular bottle, embodying the brand’s enduring legacy, family heritage and commitment to innovation and excellence. Paying homage to the craftsmanship of the Vince Camuto fashion house, the patent leather is seamed with industrial stitching at the back of the flacon. The Vince Camuto signature crest medallion is centered at the bottle front, exuding strength, style and simplicity.

Wake Up with The New York Coffee Festival 2018

Image result for new york coffee festival

There is enough stock of coffee in one place to get you to rise and shine. In the past weekend(from Oct 12-14), the New York coffee festival was held all day long. Metropolitan Pavilion, this 4-floor venue was crowded with more than 10000 coffee lovers and industry entrees, to gather together for celebrating this coffee scene.


The New York coffee festival this year was full of surprises. Not just the product itself, but the interactions made by coffee-makers and audience have also brought the coffee a new meaning.

When you came in the entrance, the booth you see just on your left is the latte art workshop. One barista was using the high-speed latte foamer to make one first latte—the Golden Bee Latte quickly. The milk used in it tastes like turmeric mixed flavor, which will be the perfect coffee choice for fall, with grains of bee glue and lavender aroma on the top.

Speaking of art, the coffee festival has also held an art project this year. Several pieces of work made with different materials were shown on the wall. Qu lulu, the previous editor of Heydoyou, has her work “ new york coffees in my sketchbook” been selected by this coffee art project.

coffee art project

Well, the art of coffee is not just the art on the wall, and also originates from the sound and alcohol there (excuse me for a second).  On top of the art project, there was also a music scene on one separate stage, bringing attendees together to taste coffee with the huger background of live music experience ( of course more enormous than what the usual cafes have).


Beside the stage, there was also a coffee cocktail bar nearby. From there, you can either order or get one alcoholic coffee drink( Free for the Super VIP Attendee). All the drinks are sponsored by Mr. Black Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur with three choices in a column: Martini, Tonic, or Spiked Ice Coffee.

At this event, I am also happy to see the diversity of coffee products as well as the countries they come from. For instance, I have tried GEISHA, this type of expresso commuted from Italy. The strong sour taste has been pushed straightly to my nose if have it only. However, once it is mixed with milk, the feeling will become magically creamy.

Italian Coffee

The ministry of Kaapi, the coffee brought from South Indian has hailed the coffee tasters with its amazing brewed coffee( from ground coffee powder), and wonderfully decorated by all kinds of milk.


Stay tuned for tomorrow! I will keep writing about the tech and media part of this coffee festival.
