We’ve got answers.
When we sent out our first bags of Carnivore Snax to beta testers, we heard a lot of great things. But the one thing people keep RAVING about is…
They're light, airy, and melt in your mouth.
People have called them "steak chips" and even "meat pastries."
(We wish we would have come up with that ourselves.)
When you bite into one of these bad boys, the first thing you'll notice is the salty, savory flavor of Redmond's Real Salt.
Then you'll be greeted with the rich, buttery, velvety flavor of the fat.
Keep chewing, though...
Because you're not done yet.
The crescendo is coming...
As you continue to chew, all the flavors will come together in a beautiful symphony of succulent flavor as this "meat chip" just melts in your mouth.
Making Carnivore Snax isn't easy.
We spent thousands of dollars and went through a looooong research & development process before we landed on something this tasty.
It took a lot of work to figure out how to transform a ribeye, pork loin, and eye round to the point where they…
Were still nutritious
Were portable enough to fit in your pocket
Actually tasted good
Retained their oh-so-delicious marbling
And meet USDA standards
We use a two-step process that takes twice as long as people who make beef jerky.
Yes… it is more expensive.
Yes… it crushes our margins.
And YES… it’s a lot harder overall for us.
That's what allows us to pack a full 1 lbs of meat into a 5 oz bag of Carnivore Snax. And it’s what makes Carnivore Snax turn out like a meat potato chip that’s light, airy and unbelievably delicious.
Currently we ship to the United States and Canada. We are not responsible for any international shipping fees incurred for shipping to Canada.
There is a weird white/yellow glimmery residue on my Carnivore Snax... is it mold?
NO. Absolutely not. This is arguably the best part. Unlike ultra-processed jerky products, our unique preparation melts fat. What you are seeing is flavorful rendered fat, and it will NOT be seen on every piece, although you'll wish it was after you taste it ;)
Why are there speckles on my Carnivore Snax?
During frozen transportation, the raw material begins to look like what's pictured above on the left. After the preparation cycle, you get what's on the right.
What are the red spots on my Carnivore Snax?
There may be red spots visible on the fat. This is a normal process that happens when the meat is layered in ovens and the meat juices drip down.
There is something hard in my Carnivore Snax... what is it?
These are connective meat fibers, NOT hair. These may become hard during the preparation cycle.
Not every piece is going to be perfect or have yellow fat. Regenerative ribeye comes in different shapes, sizes, and fat content.
There is something else hard, what is that?
This is real, VERY minimally processed meat which means it comes with fat, connective tissue, collagen, and fibers, which are all great for humans. When collagenous tissues are dried they become hard. Those pieces can be easily snapped off or can be carefully consumed.
* Use your own judgment here.
You may see another white hue/residue on top of each piece. This is Redmond Real Salt, which we hand apply to each individual piece.
Most companies dip their meat into a salt solution prior to cooking.
Why we hand apply salt:
We believe that the body prefers salt consumption in its purest form.
What this means for Snax consistency:
You may find that each piece isn't perfectly salted. If that's that case, simply add more. And if you find your Snax to be too salted, simply tap your Snax on a clean countertop and make it rain salt.
Here's a surprising fact about beef jerky:
Most jerkies contain A LOT of sugar.
For example, one 3.5oz bag of Jack Link's beef jerky contains 18 grams of sugar.
That's more than twice as much sugar in a pack of beef jerky as there is in a Reece's cup (which contains 8 grams per cup).
What the actual f**k!!!
Beef jerky isn’t health food — it’s a dessert.
… and don't even get us started on the marinades!
Jerky companies use sweeteners and marinades to add weight to their products. You think you're buying meat — but you're actually getting loads of unnecessary fillers. Too much filler, not enough killer!
On the other hand, Carnivore Snax has 0 grams of sugar and uses NO marinades.
Plus… when you buy a bag of beef jerky, you’re buying a whole lot of air.
Biltong is healthier than beef jerky. No doubt about it.
But it's far from ideal.
Similar to jerky — biltong manufacturers use sweeteners and marinades to add weight and flavor to their products.
Meaning (again) that you're not getting the real, high-quality meat you crave… you're getting sweeteners, fillers, and unnecessary ingredients.
On top of that, most biltong packages are full of air and short on actual meat.
If you want a bag of heavily marinated meat and air — go for some biltong. You'll love it.
But if you want something that's actually hearty and fun to eat…
Carnivore Snax is what you're looking for.
We use just 2 ingredients:
Full, fatty cuts of 100% grass-fed meat. And salt. That's it.
With Carnivore Snax, it’s like having a steak in your pocket… without needing a fork and knife or plate… and without drips or crumbs going everywhere.
Once you feel the light, airy crunch of biting into one, and the rich, buttery flavor… we think you'll agree it's much tastier (and satisfying) than biltong.
Carnivore Snax are made fresh in small batches. Even though the website may show an item in stock, it may not be ready to ship immediately.
If you experience extended delays your address may need to be verified with our customer support team.
We send emails to all customers who need to verify an address. Orders are not shipped until verified.
If an address is not verified within 14 days of the placed order date, a full refund will be processed to the original payment method.
Carnivore Snaxs are best enjoyed within 3 days after opening. We recommend refrigeration after 3 days in order to preserve the integrity of their awesome texture.
Consume Carnivore Snax within 10 days after opening. Unopened bags are good for 6 months (if they last that long!). These are preliminary shelf-life tests.
Carnivore Snax can also be frozen if you're going away or unable to consume right away - we do have some customers who freeze them.
