Tender moments are often the ones that get you through the toughest times. Whether it's the loss of a job or a break up, tender moments can be exactly what a person needs to help them make it over the hump and realize that it could be worse.
Tender Moments - They Help
I remember when my daughter went through her first break up. I'm sure you remember your first break up. We all do. The first break up is always the worst. It's the end of our first experience with love - or at least what we think is love - and it's fueled by the tidal wave of emotions that rush through us all at that age. My daughter had just broken up with her boyfriend of several months, and, of course, she was a sobbing heap. Nothing I tried brought her out of her teenage "my world is over" funk...Then I remembered that tender moments are the ones that can so often make a tough situation so much more bearable.
So I sat down next to her on the bed and just let her cry on my lap. She sobbed while I stroked her hair. Tender moments work people. After a while, she sat up and said, "You know what, mom? You're right. I am better off without him!" Of course she was still sad, but at least she wasn't beating herself up over it...then we hopped on a plane and spent the weekend in Grapevine, Texas. What can I say? Like mother, like daughter; travel cures heartbreak!
Tender Moments with Ball Park
My story of my daughter is kind of how it is with jerky, too. While tough jerky doesn't make me cry, it does make the muscles on the sides of my forehead hurt! Seriously, there's nothing worse than jerky that tastes delicious but that's like chewing on a shoe sole.
Ball Park's new Flame Grilled Jerky brings tender moments to a snack that is otherwise completely tough. Their flame grilled jerky is made differently - it's dried for toughness and then flame grilled for a tender textures and delicious char-grilled flavor that you won't find in other jerky.
I've been trying the different flavors and they're all pretty tasty, but the Bourbon BBQ Beef Jerky is my favorite! It is chewy like jerky but not tough at all, it's definitely more tender than some other brands of jerky I've snacked on in the past. I tend to eat a lot of jerky when I am traveling because they are easy low carb snacks that travel well - they don't need refrigerating and you can throw them in your purse or carry on bag!
I think you can actually SEE how tender this jerky is, right?
Ball Park Jerky is made with lean cuts of beef or pork, and it's a good source of protein. In fact, each serving has 8 grams or more of protein.
Flame Grilled Jerky is also gluten free with no added MSG. That means you can enjoy tough and tender moments without your colon or your head paying the price.
Ball Park Flame Grilled Jerky is available in five great flavors, and they all come in re-sealable pouches.
- Original Beef
- Bourbon BBQ Beef
- Peppered Beef
- Barbecue Pork
- Teriyaki Pork
