"Today's healthy snacker wants it all—grab-and-go convenience and exciting flavors," said Bret Ocholik, Jack Link's vice president of marketing. "Jack Link's new Beef Jerky and Chicken Nugget products offer yet another way for meat snack lovers to feed their wild sides."
A healthier snacking option, Jack Link's new meat snacks are naturally high in protein; low in fat, calories and carbs, and free of trans fats. Whether enjoyed on-the-go, at work, in the car, at the gym, or even a family movie night at home, Jack Link's is the perfect on-the-go snack for today's active consumers and their families.
NEW GRAB-N-GO PORTION CONTROL
A better snacking alternative — Jack Link's Jerky, Tender Cuts or Nuggets in convenient, 50-calorie portion control packs. Each .625-oz. package contains just 50 calories each, offering consumers a satisfying, healthier option to the ubiquitous crackers, chips and cookies currently available in the portion-control snack aisle. According to Information Resources Inc. (IRI), a Chicago-based research organization, 78 percent of American consumers are trying to eat healthier, with 63 percent replacing high-calorie snacks with better-for-you options.
"Research shows, active women struggle to get enough protein in their diets," said Kris dark, director of sports nutrition at Penn State University's Athletic Department. "When schedules are busy, it's easy to get caught in the rush and grab anything that is convenient. The downfall is choosing a snack that doesn't satisfy and only gives you empty calories. The new Jack Link's snack packs, with only 50 calories per package, provide a good source of protein and a great satiety factor for a body in search of nourishment."
Jack Link's, in conjunction with the USDA, has developed the Smart Snack designation allowing consumers to identify product benefits at a glance. The Smart Snack designation makes it easier for consumers to make healthier snacking choices. Jack Link's new 50-calorie portion control packs proudly display the Smart Snack designation on the front and back of each package. Jack Link's meat snack products are an excellent source of protein, naturally low in calories, fat and carbs, and free of trans fats.
"Today's snacker wants more than empty carbs," said Bret Ocholik, Jack Link's vice president of marketing. "We're really proud that all of our Jack Link's Beef Jerky products provide consumers with healthier snacking options. Our new 50-calorie packages make it easier for those who are counting calories to get exactly what they want out of a snacking experience."
