Basically beef jerky sticks. Their about the length of an index finger and a lot easier to chew however.

The sodium content was what I liked about it, though. I am an endurance athlete and I am about to start on a supplement with 1g of sodium. I had suffered before because of losing too much salt and most PWD replace potassium but not sodium and I end up craving and eating “food with my salt” sometimes.
