Slim Jim On The Outs?

It has been reported by the New York Post that Slim Jim may be on it’s way out…well not exactly. You might remember the recent explosion at the factory. Seems production hasn’t started since and parent company ConAgra isn’t sure when they’ll get them motors running again. They’ve said it will be at least a month and there is only a limited supply of jerky sticks on shelves.

Really?!? I find that hard to believe. If you were to gather all the Slim Jim’s from all the roadside stores and gas stations I think you’d have enough to feed their stock car loving, WWE supportin’, American flag wavin’ clientele for at least a couple years. I mean, who eats, and must I say enjoys, these anyway? Any of you readers? Seems to me you could get a lot more bang for your buck elsewhere….I mean, hello Taco Bell and their Roosevelt menu!!!

    I think Slim Jims are gross. They’re greasy and mushy, and they make a mockery of beef jerky. I used to eat them when I was a kid, but I can’t stomach them anymore. Tastes like spiced, partially liquified mystery meat wrapped in scotch tape.

  2. RossS says:

    I agree. Too me, it’s like eating plastic with a hint of “meat” flavor. I’d rather have the real thing, if I’m in the mood for jerky.

    I went to Catholic school and these were still available in the cafe on Fridays during lent. I guess they aren’t considered real meat by the clergy.

    A bit classist of a statement, don’t you think?

    I am sure there are PGA loving, tennis watching, trendy, hoidy toidy, communist, left wing nut jobs that snap into a Slim Jim from time to time as well. LOL

    I can’t say I’m a fan of them. I don’t mid the flat beef jerky styled ones they came out with. Those are rather tasty, but for the price, I would just assume eat some real beef jerky. The flat Slim Jims look as if they were shot from a tube and formed in a mold.

    @Adam Bomb – I think they taste like that because that’s what they are.

    @RossS – That’s a good way to put it, “meat” flavor.

    @Nick T – That’s freakin’ funny. Maybe they don’t contain real meat as referenced above.

    @Raiders757 – Either way, I’d pay for those two groups to fight over said Slim Jim!
