Texas BBQ Primal Strips – Primal Spirit Foods

Texas BBQ Primal StripSuggested by Rowena

Primal Spirit Foods say: “Our Primal Strips are the favourite of protein hungry bikers, climbers, and outdoors people. Kids love them in their lunch boxes and as mid-day snacks. Primal Strips- Best tasting, best textured, meatless jerky at the lowest single-serve price on the market.”

I like the Texas BBQ flavour the best as it has a very nice taste and aroma. They also come in Thai Peanut, Teriyaki, Hickory Smoked (very peppery), Mesquite Lime (not to my taste) and I have yet to try Hot and Spicy.

Texas BBQ Flavour Ingredients: Non-Gmo Isolated Soy Protein, Water, Unrefined Evaporated Cane Juice, Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce (Water, Non-Gmo Soybeans, Sea Salt), Vinegar, Sea Salt, Natural Smoke Flavoring, Natural Vegetarian Spices. No Msg Added.
