I guess I really like Slim Jim's...

I don't know if BLF member slmjim likes Slim Jim's, but apparently I do.  :-)

slim_jims

I bought 160 of them for $39.57

That's 9.7 pounds of Slim Jim's!

They were on clearance, and they technically expire is a couple of days, but I doubt that they will actually expire so quickly.

I eat three a day, so I'll be out of them in less than 2 months.

I think I'll be fine.

I mean, I eat so healthy!  :D

 

Maria, from the 99¢ Store, bless her heart, counted them.

And she explained that the most the cash register will accept at a time is 100 items, which is why the Slim Jim's had to split into two lines on the receipt.

I'm glad she counted them out loud, because I sure as heck didn't.

Mmmmm...

Slim Jim's!  :THUMBS-UP:

Great Deal.

coworker bought SJ and some other jerky treats from a amish discount store that were 1-3 years outdated.

Expiration dates on food and people are not always to be treated as if they were carved in stone.

I always think long and hard before I say something really stupid.

Last year when we started making jerky our first batch was 100lbs wet. Not that against the norm because once the friends and family find out we are making it they start showing up wondering when it’s gonna be ready.

Once you spice up rat meat it’s really not that bad . Eating three Slim -Jims a day will keep you in perfect shape and if you exercise you’ll probably make it to 50 . Thumbs Up

life is:
a great disc of polished wood that revolves quickly. At first you sit down and watch the others. They are all trying to sit in the wheel, and they keep getting flung off, and that makes them laugh, and you laugh too. It’s great fun . . . Of course at the very centre there’s a point completely at rest, if one could only find it. . . . Lots of people just enjoy scrambling on and being whisked off and scrambling on again. . . . But the whole point about the wheel is that you needn’t get on it at all. . . . People get hold of ideas about life, and that makes them think they’ve got to join in the game, even if they don’t enjoy it. It doesn’t suit everyone . .

I'll be dating myself when I say this; my screen name came from my old CB radio handle, and is still reasonably descriptive. An attempt to register the correct spelling during the earliest days of hotmail was stymied by someone already having an account correctly spelled, so I just removed the "I" in "slim".

 

I used to get teased a little about the similarity of said handle/screen name and the beef jerky snack. I do indeed like Slim Jim snacks. They're the tasty chewing gum of the processed-meat world.

 

Great find by the way, OP!

Great... Carnac the Magnificent tells me I just signed up for yet another expensive hobby.

I don’t like Tabasco hot sauce, but I do like the Tabasco Slim Jims.

Although, my typical preference is for the Jack Links products over the Slim Jim brand.

Back in my younger days I use to eat them all the time . Now I try to avoid anything with more than a handful of ingredients on the label. I’m already well preserved. Big Smile

My homemade stuff has more than a handful of ingredients, then again it’s all stuff you can easily recognize and pronounce.

Those are delicious, but messy.

Turkey Habanero isn't my favorite flavor, but that's what was on clearance.

They aren’t bad if you extract the grease from them… Big Smile

50% grease, 30% wrapper, the rest is 100% beef mixed with a savory blend of salts, nitrates, and MSG!

WHAT’S NOT TO LIKE? Cool

Oh wow, why not list what the crap aint in and how it’s not gonna cause the downfall of man. The list would be a lot shorter.

It’s a very legit concern but that site just screams tinfoil wearing contrail watcher.

It aint even that hard, just leave them on the truck dash in the sun for an hour. Then poke a hole in the bottom and it will pour out on it’s own.

It’s just a rather clever (IMHO) gag site. “DHMO” is the chemical abbreviation for “water”. Smile

Worked on the road out in the boonies for way too long. Truck dash parked in the sun is sometimes your only heating source during a fire ban.

No harm, no foul. I’m a thick skinned coot. Much of the time I am dumb as a box of rocks. Hang around and I’m sure it won’t be long I’ll say/do something stupid.

Besides everybody knows the real liquid of life is beer and/or whiskey.

I just decided to try a Jack Links Teriyaki beef stick. Did not like it; way too sweet, with no spicy seasoning at all.

Funny fact – beer is sometimes cheaper than water here in Germany. Never believed it until I looked at a menu and saw 0.5L water 2.30 euro, 0.5L Pilsner 2.20 euro. 0.4L Coke was 3.30 euro!!
