Pap's Genuine Beef Sticks


Pap's Genuine Beef Sticks is a new brand of meat snacks based out of Junction City, KY. It was started by Rick Waldon.

Waldon's philosophy with beef sticks was to make them out of beef, and not "mechanically separated chicken". And instead of filling them up with soy and wheat fillers, he actually fills them up with beef. The result is a beef stick made of beef, and American raised beef at that. Moreover, Pap's Genuine Beef Sticks claims to be a "tender, moister, beefier" beef stick.

Presently the company offers three flavors, Mild Smokey, Honey, and Spicy, with more flavors are coming this year. They are currently stocked in convenience stores throughout Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, and Indiana. You can also buy them from their website.
