Trick or Meat? 14 Healthy Snack-Size Carnivore Halloween Treats

Shares

Holidays can be tough when you’re trying to avoid carbohydrates, and Halloween might be the toughest of them all, a day absolutely dedicated to sugary gluttony. The average trick or treater on Halloween eats an unbelievable 3 cups of sugar—equivalent to 220 sugar packets—an outrageously unhealthy amount by any standard. That’s a blood glucose management nightmare!

Lucky for us, low-carb options are getting better every year, and this year meats snacks are having a moment. So there’s no need to deny yourself the fun of a Hallows’ Eve snackfest—just treat yourself, or the local kiddos, to some of the best new meat treats on the market.

ASweetLife has put together a list of the best carnivore snack-size treats:

 

The New Primal Snackmates

A special line of meat snacks for kids, these pouches pack away perfectly into a pumpkin pail (or a lunchbox). Flavors include low-carb hints of maple, cranberry, and cherry.

 

Stryve Beef Biltong

Stryve Beef Biltong

Have you tried biltong yet? It’s the beef jerky of South Africa, and is traditionally made without any sugar at all. Unlike jerky, which is sliced into thin strips and dried in an oven, biltong is marinated in vinegar and then air-dried one big slab of beef at a time, and sliced afterwards for a more tender final product.

 

Shrooms Splits

Shrooms Splits

Here’s a new idea: portabella mushroom and turkey jerkies together in one pack. Healthy snacking ingredients with a slightly sweet marinade.

 

Brooklyn Biltong 2 oz Packs

4505 Cheese-Charrones Snack Mix

San Francisco’s 4505 Meats has quickly grown from a lone farmer’s market stand into a small empire of porky brilliance. The company’s fried pork rinds are a huge hit and are now widely available, and a new party treat has just hit the shelves: this mix of two different types pork crackling mixed with cheddar cheese crisps.

 

Flock Chicken Chips

Flock Chicken Chips

Pork rinds aren’t the only crispy skins in the game. Flock’s chicken skin chips are thin and crunchy like potato chips, zero sugar and high protein.
