As a reader of Jerking the Trigger, I suspect you probably pride yourself on your situational awareness. So, you are no doubt aware that Christmas is breathing down your neck. I also suspect that not all of you are done with your Christmas shopping yet. Stateside Man Goods can help.
I was recently contacted by Mike at Stateside Man Goods so he could tell me more about his business. Stateside Man Goods was started as service to provide truly premium care packages to those in the military. They still provide military care packages but have also expanded into a sort of one-stop-shop for premium gift baskets and care packages that any guy (and a lot of ladies) would love.
Stateside Man Goods stays true to their original purpose by donating care packages to troops and allowing others to donate money to go toward the purchase of those gift baskets. I was really impressed with Mike’s passion about his business, his product line, and his charity work so when he offered to send me a package of premium food items to review, I jumped at the chance. Sometimes it’s really hard to be me.
The package that I received included a smattering of some of Stateside Man Good’s most popular items including:
- Crocodile Crunch by Feridies
- Teriyaki Beef Jerky by Mountain America Jerky
- Habanero Beef Jerky by Mountain America Jerky
- Perugina Milk Chocolate Bar
- White Cheddar Popcorn from Deep River Snacks
- Fisher’s Caramel Popcorn
- Sour Cream & Onion from Dirty Chips
- Bold Bahama BBQ Kettle Cooked Potato Chips from Mike Sell’s
- Steve’s Original Paleo Stix
- Tanka Bar
- Cranberry Jalapeno Beef Jerky by Jeff’s Famous Jerky
- Tanka Wild Buffalo Stick
Yeah, This Stuff is Good…
Crocodile Crunch – This is the sort of nut mix that hits just about every craving all at once. It has a habanero/mango seasoning that is sweet, salty, and just a touch spicy at the same time. It isn’t as spicy as you would think from the habanero. I found it very mild. My wife thought it was pretty spicy. The honey roasted peanuts, salted cashews, pretzel balls, roasted pepper sesame sticks, goji berries and green peas were all great and there were plenty of each in the mix.
Teriyaki Beef Jerky by Mountain America Jerky – This is a pretty solid beef jerky. The teriyaki flavoring is pretty subtle and it tastes mostly like beef which is a good thing. It is the chewy type which I like better than the softer more tender stuff. It is hearty and would be great for taking on a hike.
Habanero Beef Jerky by Mountain America Jerky – The sticker on the package states “It’s Really Hot, Man!!” They aren’t kidding. This stuff will melt your face off and clear your sinuses. It has a bit of flavor and a lot of pain. I like spicy but this is more than I prefer. I let a few people who like very spicy things try it and they loved it. It is both very chewy and very moist which is nice. Normally, you get one or the other with jerky.
