15-ounce Bags of Jalapeno and Teriyaki Beef Sticks Spice Things Up for At-Home Snackers

In a market sphere where shrinking product size is the norm, Old Trapper is focusing on expanding its product offerings to further meet consumers’ desire for high quality product in large clear-view packages.

The company recently launched two new flavors of its 15-ounce bags of Deli-Style Beef Sticks. Jalapeno and Teriyaki seasoned are the latest options to come in the shareable bags. And because they are low in carbohydrates and sugars at only 2 grams of total carbohydrates with 9 grams of protein per serving, they represent a keto-friendly snack.

A December 2018 “Forbes” feature predicted, “You can expect to see more keto-friendly snack options and meals.” For those not in the know, “a keto diet focuses on low carbohydrate … foods.” Flash forward a year and the low-carb trend is showing no signs of letting up. In August 2019, MarketWatch reported, “Ketogenic Diet Market Size will grow at 5.5% CAGR to exceed 15,640.6 million USD by 2027.” That figure equates to more than $15.5 billion.

Old Trapper continues to cater to this growing keto market with its line of authentic meat snacks. To ensure its customers always have a tasty snack option, the company is constantly expanding its product offerings. The new Jalapeno and Teriyaki 15-ounce Deli-Style Beef Sticks are the newest taste temptations to accommodate Old Trapper’s hungriest fans.

New 15-Ounce Flavors of Deli-Style Beef Sticks

The new Teriyaki flavor combines the delicious spice of Old Trapper’s famous smoked beef with the tangy flavor of soy sauce. The result is arguably the world’s best tasting teriyaki beef stick. The Jalapeno Deli-Style Beef Sticks start with the same wood-fire smoked beef with the added bonus of jalapeno spiciness.

“The popularity of our Original flavor 15-ounce bags told us that our customers are looking for large quantities of quality beef sticks for a good price,” explains Robert Leary,Old Trapper’s Director of Marketing. “Our latest Jalapeno and Teriyaki versions of the shareable bags deliver more of what our market base is craving – we know this because of how fast they sell out at retailers. And because we are so proud of the appealing mahogany color, all our 15-ounce Deli-Style Beef Sticks are clear bagged so consumers can see the exact quantity and quality they are receiving.”

Each 15-ounce bag of Old Trapper Deli-Style Beef Sticks retails for around $14. Each serving of both new flavors contains only 2 grams of total carbohydrates with 9 grams of protein making them a keto-friendly snack.

Voke was a simple idea dreamed up by Kalen Caughey over a decade ago on a chairlift at his local ski hill in southwest Montana. As a competitive skier, he was looking for a healthy, convenient, and ultra-portable energy solution to fuel long days in the mountains and at school.

Kalen teamed up with his dad, a PhD in biochemistry, to research an ideal combination of natural ingredients that would provide a balanced, sustained energy boost without sugar, artificial sweeteners or excessive doses of vitamins. Together they combed through thousands of pages of scientific literature in search of ingredients that were proven to improve memory, focus, metabolism and physical stamina. The resulting ‘Voke Blend’ that they developed was an exacting combination of organic Guarana Berry Seed, organic Acerola Cherry, Red Beet and natural Green Tea Leaf Caffeine that delivers a consistent and reliable vitalizing lift in focus and energy. With the formula developed, Kalen brought in his brother, Evan, to help with creative development and operations. Kalen and Evan continue to run Voke together as a family business.

Over the years, Voke has spread via word of mouth to people around the US and across the world. Voke has fueled expeditions on all seven continents, including many climbs in the Himalaya and a global sailboat navigation. As word continues to spread, Voke Tabs are seeing rapid adoption beyond the original core group of adventurers to an incredibly diverse group of health-minded professionals. Tech engineers, truck drivers, pilots, doctors, fire fighters, commercial fisherman, artists, executives, yoga instructors, photographers, soldiers and night shift workers are a few of the new groups discovering the many benefits of Voke Tab.

But for me, I have the hope in my heart, I believe everything will be fine soon. Some de-stress products help a lot, such as having a nice warm bath.

Swedencare Introduces Mini Dental Dog Bones with the Proven Oral Care Benefits of the ProDen PlaqueOff® System

Toy and small dog breeds can now more easily enjoy the proven dental health benefits of the ProDen PlaqueOff® system. Formulated specifically for smaller dogs, the new Mini Dental Dog Bones from SwedencareUSA are the only dog chews available on the market to offer this system. They made their official public debut at the 2019 SuperZoo trade show. Slated for August 20–22, 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada, SuperZoo is the most-attended pet industry trade show in North America. According to Mercola’s Healthy Pets site ,“It’s imperative that you match the size of the bone or chew with the personality, size and health of your dog.” In the article, Dr. Karen Shaw Becker stresses, “Two important questions dog parents should ask before offering their pet a bone or chew are: 1) Is it nontoxic, and 2) Is it a good fit for my dog?

The new Mini Dental Dog Bones from SwedencareUSA provide a resounding yes to both questions for toy and small breed canine owners. Designed specifically with smaller breeds in mind, the mini bones are shorter and skinnier than the Original version with all the same proven ProDen PlaqueOff® dental benefits of their predecessor.

This extension of the Swedencare Dental Bones line helps clean teeth, reduce tartar and freshen breath. The American Kennel Club says that “one of the most commonly recognized health issues of small breeds is dental disease.” The combination of relatively large teeth and small mouths in such breeds “results in very crowded conditions that lead to dental disease.”

The only dental chew on the market today with the proven PlaqueOff® System, Swedencare Mini Dental Dog Bones offer extended dental benefits to the breeds that need them most. They scrub away plaque and tartar then help keep teeth clean and freshen doggie breath.

The new mini bones are available in two dog-tempting flavors: Vegetable Fusion and Vegetable Fusion & Blueberry. Both flavors are made from natural sea kelp with vegan probiotics. They are also grain free and gluten free as well as naturally rich in Omega fatty acids. VCA (formerly known as Veterinary Centers of America) says such fatty acids can reduce shedding, promote growth of the undercoat, reduce tendencies to inflammation and help resolve inflammation.

About SwedencareUSA, Inc.

Founded in 2005, SwedencareUSA is the U.S. and Canadian distributor of ProDen PlaqueOff®, an oral healthcare product developed in Sweden. Following trials, PlaqueOff® has become the premier dental product for participants’ pets. The company’s business expansion has led to the inclusion of PlaqueOff Dental Care Bones, which incorporate PlaqueOff’s incomparable plaque- and tartar-fighting ability into tasty treats. SwedencareUSA prides itself on the quality of its products and its friendly and fast service to customers.

Great Wine for A Fun Home Staying Memorial Day Weekend

Drinking a bottle of delicious wine at your own balcony, I don’t think I miss bars at all. Home drinking can still be fun and enjoyable. The Clambake wines are delicious and perfect for upcoming warm weather.
Mary McAuley (Credit: Ripe Life Wines)
Founder, Mary McAuley’s inspiration was simple – she was a beach obsessed sommelier (and French Culinary Institute grad) tasked with picking the wines for her friends annual clambake on the Jersey shore.  When she couldn’t find exactly what she was looking for, she rolled up her sleeves and made them herself for the next year with premium Mendocino grapes.
The result?  A bright, unoaked Chardonnay that is light, clean and smooth, and a delicate, fruit-forward floral rose. While they conjure up images of shoreside seafood feast, they are perfect to sip wherever you are, as an aperitif or with a wide variety of warm weather dishes Mary can suggest.
Now let me introduce these two amazing wines for your summer 2020. They are great for a stay-home Memorial Day weekend, drinking good wines and eating seafoods. That sounds a fun and lovely long weekend should be.
The Clambake
Un-Oaked Chardonnay
This unoaked Chardonnay isn’t your typical big, buttery Chardonnay. This single-vineyard Mendocino Chardonnay is picked slightly under-ripe, and aged in stainless steel tanks, resulting in an atypically light, clean and smooth expression of California Chardonnay. Letting the grapes from this amazing region speak for themselves.
RIPE LIFE WINES winemaking techniques result in a Chardonnay that is curiously delicate with notes of lemon verbena, green apple citrus zest and crisp minerality that will make your clambake food sing a little louder… and cut through that delicious better, too. But Chardonnay is still king so there’s still enough richness and boy to stand up to all those potatoes and lobsters staring ‘atcha.
The Clambake
Limited Edition Rosé
For Clambake Limited Edition Rosé 2015 and 2016, RIPE LIFE WINES have selected some of the very best old-vine carignan from Mendocino they every seen. Picked in its youth and crushed ever so lightly, RIPE LIFE WINES have created a Rosé with both delicate, flawless and acid-driven structure, but also only extracting the best juice out of the grapes for the best flavor.
Refreshingly crisp, this Rosé backbone if the perfect match for a seafood feast, notes of wild strawberry, bing cherry candied citrus, and light florals dazzle on the palate in a wine that is light, dry, and wonderfully smooth. The flavor profile will bring out the very best in claw meat, steamers, sweet corn, and everything in between, but perfect on it’s own as well.
