Nick’s Sticks: 100% Grass-fed Beef and Free-range Turkey

Nick makes snack sticks that start with 100% grass-fed beef and free-range turkey. Next comes a dash of organic seasoned salt, blended into his proprietary recipe. The result…the cleanest and best-tasting snack sticks you can find.  We refuse to use MSG, chemical nitrates, antibiotics, hormones, or gluten.  We were one of the first sticks on the market to not use sugar or red dye casings.

We currently offer 4 flavors of snack sticks.  The original flagship stick was our regular beef stick.  It took nearly 2 years to perfect the right stick.  Early test failure were too dry, too tough, too greasy, too salty, not enough salt…you get the idea.  We finally dialed in the right combinations and started selling sticks all across the country.  The second logical flavor was spicy.  I had tried spicy jerky and sticks that were too hot, the flavor was lost because the heat ruined the flavor.  To avoid making them too hot we decided on jalapeño instead of red pepper.  The jalapeño seems to bypass that intense heat on the tongue, thus allowing the flavor to develop in the mouth and around the taste buds.  We went with both jalapeño powder and chunks because we wanted to see and feel the texture of jalapeño.  We think it creates a nice balance for the spicy lovers and also doesn’t kill the mouth of the occasional spicy dabbler.

Next in line for our flavor experiment was using a friend of ours ground turkey.  He’s raising delicious birds out on real pasture and that flavor can’t be matched by a confinement bird.  We use the same recipe for both the original turkey and the spicy turkey and they instantly became popular for those looking to eat a variety of meat proteins.

Be on the lookout for more flavors to come….we are always in the smokehouse playing around with different meats, spices and herbs!

About Us : 

Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of helping Paleo Diet Adherents easily identify products that met the basic tenets of the diet.  Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Paleo Approved, Paleo Vegan, and Paleo Friendly Certification Programs.


100% of  Paleo Foundation revenue is generated through Paleo Certifications. We do not accept donations, corporate sponsorships, or financially benefit from the sales of any paleo certified products, product giveaways, or partnerships with industry contacts or retailers for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of an impartial certification standard. 

How we determine Paleo Certification Standards:

The Paleo Foundation develops Certification Standards from a mixture of input from various experts in the Paleo Movement, community input, and from logically and critically assessing arguments for the inclusion or exclusion of specific foods. After all, the Paleo Diet is a theoretical template, and therefore logic must be taken into account when making determinations for an entire community. 

Paleo Approved, Certified Paleo, Paleo Friendly, and PaleoVegan Certification Programs:

Each Paleo Certification Program has a different set of standards. For the absolute strictest standards, Paleo Approved certifies farms, ranches, and single-ingredient products. Certified Paleo, the most popular of the Paleo Certification programs certifies products that contain Paleo Diet ingredients, but have some 21st century processing methods allowing for shelf stability. The Paleo Friendly Program allows for products that are generally regarded as gray-area products such as kombucha, dark chocolate, and even grass-fed dairy.
