If you’re sick of chomping on dry, heavy granola or protein bars on your hikes, the Silver Creek company has something a little different for you.

They’ve taken chicken breast and beef sirloin and made them into the most delicious jerky available. You can choose from six different artisan flavors, such as teriyaki chicken breast with mangoes and papayas, beef sirloin with apples and cherries or chicken breast with black bean salsa and Wisconsin Cheddar.

These snacks are a great source of protein (each one has at least 8 grams, some have more) while keeping the fat and calorie counts low. Silver Creek even has managed to keep four flavors gluten free.

At 1 ounce apiece these yummy snacks are light and make for easy packing and storing — a delicious change of pace!

1 ounce serving: $1.39
