If you’ve gone camping or hiking you likely know Coleman. Even if you don’t camp you probably know them, because I’m fairly sure everyone has seen their famous lanterns. Coleman has been around since 1900 and is the most recognized outdoor brand in the world. Although outdoor activities aren’t limited to the summertime, Coleman is one of the most associated brands of summer. While famous for their outdoor gear, Coleman is also known for something else – Coleman Steak Snacks.
If by some chance you haven’t seen Coleman Steak Snacks, let me tell you a little about them. At a quick glance, you might be tempted to call these snacks beef jerky. They are not beef jerky. They are chewy, not tough like beef jerky. This is because each bite is infused with the perfect blend of seasonings, then slowly cooked, ensuring steak snacks that are the most tender and flavorful available. Coleman Steak Snacks are 100% all natural snacks made from US-raised beef. These tender, chewy gluten-free snacks contain no high fructose corn syrup, no msg, and no added nitrites.
- Coleman Steak Snacks are currently available in three varieties:
- Original Recipe
- Cracked Pepper
- Sweet Teriyaki
Coleman Steak Snacks are perfect for camping and hiking. They’re also great for road trips and almost any other activity. While they are tasty and great right out of the bag, you can even incorporate them into snacks.
When I think of snacks, one of the first things to come to mind is chips and dip. Who doesn’t love a thick dip that clings to the chip! I decided to make a thick and cheesy dip that would complement the flavor of Coleman Steak Snacks. I have to really watch out when we have dip. My youngest, who is gluten-free, loves dip. Many dips are not gluten-free. Since Coleman Steak Snacks are gluten-free, this means the dip was also safe for my entire family to eat. The Cracked Pepper flavor was perfect, adding just the right amount of flavor to my warm dip. We all enjoyed the dip, and my youngest was in heaven with it. Here’s how I made it.
