The front of the packaging of Oberto Original Beef Trail Mix says it’s, “the perfect combination of our original beef jerky, nuts, seeds, dried fruit and semi-sweet chocolate.” It also says there’s no artificial ingredients and there’s 12 grams of protein in this snack. When I first saw this I was pretty excited that a company was using beef jerky in a way that’s different from how it’s traditionally been promoted.
There are many things I like about the packaging of Oberto Original Beef Jerky – the bold yellow colors, the fact that there is a picture of what the product is supposed to be on the front, and the fact that one pack is one serving. Check, check and check! When I poured it out to examine the contents, it looked very similar to what’s pictured – and what’s described – with distinct pieces of chocolate, beef jerky, small pieces of dried fruit, seeds and nuts … double check!
❊ Taste & Appearance
The product is visually appealing and the taste is spot on too. I was skeptical about the combination of beef jerky and chocolate – and it totally works! It makes it texturally interesting, and add to that the seeds and nuts and we have a winner. I loved it so much that I’ve bought this several times since I first picked it up in the grocery store. I did find one issue – I bought 2 packs that were within 1 month of the Best By date and the jerky was TOUGH!
❊ Serving Size and Nutritionals
Each 57 gram pack of Oberto Original Beef Trail Mix provides 270 calories from 19 grams of fat (29% of the DV), 12 grams of sugars, 3 grams of fiber and 12 grams of protein. That’s almost 1/3rd of the daily value for fat so definitely something to be mindful of when consuming this snack.
The ingredients list for Oberto Original Beef Trail Mix includes … original beef jerky, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, pecans, sunflower seeds, golden raisins, dried cranberries and semi-sweet chocolate pieces.
❊ Price / Worth It?
Each 2 ounce (57 gram) pack cost $1.98 at my local grocery store – which is I sometimes think is a little too much. But since I’ve bought this a few times now, it clearly isn’t too much of a problem.
