I love running trails and hiking and exploring new places. Right now the weather is perfect in Las Vegas for long hikes around Red Rock Canyon and Mount Charleston. When we take the kiddos with us for hikes we definitely take our time out there and let them explore and play around. We always pack some snacks for us and it we usually include foods like apples, jerky, trail mix, granola bars, and such!
Recently, I was mailed some samples to try out from the awesome folks at Kooee Snacks! Kooee Snacks was founded in 2013 by Shaun Malligan because he was tired of the limited healthy and high protein snack options found at his work. Him and his team produce a high protein paleo-friendly, gluten-free, and soy-free jerky trail mix. KOOEE! was founded Their jerky is made with 100% grass-fed beef! Every pack of KOOEE! allows you to trace the beef used in every pack to its source. Yea, you know I was excited to try this stuff out! It also includes naturally dried fruit, raw nuts and seeds, and nutrient rich superfoods!
So, how does it taste? One word: Delicious! I love their unique RIP>PEEL>MIX pouches too! They are easy to open for people on the go and allow you to combine the ingredients together when you open it, which means fresher ingredients.
They've launched 2 initial flavors. The Smoked Chipotle with Apple has a great spicy flavor to it that's balanced nicely with the apples and nuts. My favorite has been the Lime Pepper with Mango. It also has a nice spicy flavor but it's tangy and sweet! With the funds from their Kickstarter Campaign they will release a new flavor that sounds amazing too, Chilli Cherry and Berries. I can't wait to try that one out too! Go on and check out their kickstarter and if you're so inclined to try out their healthy trail mix, back them up with a pledge! I promise, you won't be disappointed ;)
