Pacific Gold Reserve’s Jerky Trail Mix is made with grass fed, tender jerky and a premium blend of fruits, nuts and fair trade certified dark chocolate and seeds. The trail mix comes in three gourmet flavors including: Cracked Peppercorn Turkey Jerky with Dark Chocolate and Expresso Beans, Bourbon Glazed Beef Jerky with Cherries and Walnuts and Korean BBQ Recipe Pork Jerky with Mango and Papaya. All three are made with no artificial ingredients, nitrates, MSG or corn syrup. The smoked sausage sticks come in three unique flavors: Sweet Italian, Original Smoked Recipe and Spicy Chorizo. The sticks are gluten free and made with agave and 100% sea salt. The last meat snack that Pacific Gold Reserve is adding to their line up is Cracked Peppercorn Turkey Jerky. Peppered continues to be the third most preferred flavor by consumers. The jerky is made with turkey raised without antibiotic or hormones, is gluten free and high in protein.

All of the new products have no artificial ingredients, preservatives, MSG, nitrates/nitrites, corn syrup, are made with sea salt and are gluten free.  With these new product innovations, Oberto Brands reaffirms their commitment to the Pacific Gold Reserve’s mission of providing delicious, convenient, and better-for-you snacking products that enable their core adventurous Millennial consumer demographic to make better and healthier snacking decisions.
