Product Review: Rugged Meats


Let me preface this review by saying that I am a Quackenbush, which means this...I like to eat. When I am home and doing projects and such, I don't snack so much, but in a treestand or while hunting the SoCal forests, I like a quality snack. Chocolate melts, trail mix is good, but I get over that fairly quickly. I've been eating the Rugged Meats brand of snacks and sticks for a couple years and I have to say they have a permanent parking spot in my pack now. Rugged Meats offers some awesome tasty snacks that will leave you satisfied.

First off, the snacks are from made from feral swine right here in the U.S.A. No MSG, no nitrites, and they are gluten free. Packed full of protein, they fill you up and taste great. They aren't too salty, but have incredible flavor.

I have tried all of the flavors. I have my favorites, but I encourage you guys to try them all. We all have different flavors we prefer.




Original - My favorite flavor. This was hands down my favorite. (Before I wrote this review I ordered another big bag of sticks and bites.) Just enough spice and plenty of flavor to go around.

Sunrise - These are great for those who don't like spicy. This is my least favorite flavor. It's not bad, just a little too bland for me, but I know many who really enjoy this flavor. In fact, it really is great for a morning stick.

Grass-fed Beef Jalapeño - This tastes great and has a bit of heat. I like a bit more heat if it says jalapeño, but I understand why Rugged Meats did it. I don't think anyone wants to be hiking up a hill, eat a super spicy meat stick and continue hiking.

Snack Stick Bites (Original or Sriracha) - I urge caution with these as they will go fast! They are addicting and so darn tasty. I like the original over the sriracha, but the sriracha is a tasty nugget! 

If you want a quality snack for the backcountry, Rugged Meats snacks are it. They pack well  and don't need refrigeration. I also eat these as part of my lunch and when I am craving a snack. Instead of grabbing chips, or a candy bar, I grab one of these and it's great! Unfortunately, they go very fast! These come highly recommended from me. Delicious, good for you, and they are from feral pigs. Yum!

If you want to try some for yourself, I have a discount code for you! Type in quackmaster when you view your rucksack (cart)! It is good for 15% off of the entire purchase with the exception of subscribe and save items and anything that is on sale.
