Think Jerky is a gourmet snack that is crafted by a combination of Food Network hosts, Michelin-Star winners and even James Beard Award winners. Made from beef or turkey, each bag of Think Jerky is a reasonable 70 to 100 calories, and is low in fat and carbohydrate. It’s also a great way to sneak in some more protein! One bag contains 70 to 100 calories, 6 grams of carbohydrate, 11 to 12 grams of protein and 260 to 290 milligrams of sodium. This jerky is free from hormones, antibiotics, gluten and nitrates. And the flavors can’t be beat: Choose from Classic, Sesame Teriyaki, Sriracha Honey or Sweet Chipotle. Or try the Jerky variety pack. Think Jerky is a perfect low-carb, high-protein on-the-go snack to enjoy anytime.
