The fast paced lifestyles of our world today have the potential to alter the snack habits of just about everyone. The snack food industry nowadays has the resources to produce very healthy snacks or just plain junk food. My name is Milton Hock, the owner of Bayou Blend Meat Snacks, and we have chosen to create extremely healthy meat snacks, that are not only wholesome, but remarkably great tasting.
Our dried meat snack has been an eighteen year process. During that process, it became a passion to produce some of the most unique flavors in the meat snack industry. Louisiana has hosted many mainstream and reality TV shows making the culture and cuisine of Southern Louisiana more popular than ever, placing it in an international spotlight.
When I decided to market the products of Bayou Blend Meat Snacks, my main objective was to ensure that everyone was able to enjoy to the flavors of South Louisiana, in an easy to enjoy meat snack. Over the years, the term “Cajun” has been so overwhelmingly used, that it has come to mean over spiced and HOT food by non-natives of Louisiana, so much so that many local food processors have resorted to deleting the term “Cajun” in their product lines. Although “Cajun” and South Louisiana are synonymous in today’s culture, my products represent the true flavors of Louisiana, which I, as a native, enjoy in my everyday life.
A few years ago, I was amazed when I realized that many non-natives thought of our food as over spiced and HOT. It was then that I began to use the phrase and concept “Cajun don’t have to mean HOT”. In conversations and while promoting my Melange Original meat snack, it was paramount that I become an advocate to change the misconceptions of the word “Cajun”, as it related to food. Each of the 3 flavors, Melange, File’ Gumbo and Luziana Bonfire, capture the unique tastes of traditional foods from South Louisiana, “Cajun Country”.
I know there is a place for the authentic flavors of South Louisiana in the snack industry. Bayou Blend Meat Snacks currently has products on the market, available nationwide. Become part of the ever growing popularity of Bayou Blends Meat Snacks and try some today. We’re so sure you will like our beef jerky, we guarantee it every purchase.
