    More Information:
    Slim Jims are a popular American smoked-meat snack, similar to jerky or dried sausage. The closest thing we'd have in Ireland would be pepperoni, so we decided to nab a few Slimothy Jimothy's (their full name, presumably) and see what our Irish People made of them!

    As an American I can safely say, slim jims are almost exclusively bought for when you are on road trips either across the country, or to another city, whichever takes over 1+ hours to deive

    Slim Jim's and cheese. 👌
    When you graduate from a teenager these things are somewhat unexceptionable... For your body that is.

    I always thought they were to expensive for what they were. They are mostly skin and hardly any meat. If macho man randy savage didnt endorse it, I honestly think it wouldn't have took off like it did. I prefer Jack's links.

  • stonescorpio
    stonescorpio 7 days ago

    Slim Jims aren't the kind of food you buy in the the regular course of things. They're what you grab at a gas station to offset the sugar rush from your powdery donuts when you're still three hours off from your destination. They're what you shove in a grocery bag with some gummy candy and an apple you won't eat, because you know you'll need something if your car breaks 50 miles from anywhere and you have to wait for a tow.
    Slim Jims are road trip food, They just don't taste right outside a car.

    Listen guys, it's trucker food. Couple of burly guys driving their 16-wheeler across Arkansas stop at a 7-11 at 9 PM and get a Diet Coke and a couple of Slim Jims. There you go.

    Any time I think no one on earth can be whiter than me, I hear people talk about how spicy Tabasco is and I realize there are, in fact, people even whiter than me on this planet. Somehow.

    If you honestly think Americans are fooling around and hitting each other with Slim Jims: you are absolutely right because we do. At least, this American does. XD

  • Fwazangalang Entertainment

    Best way to eat a slim Jim is by giving it a nice char over a flame. Gets rid of a lot of the oil and adds a nice kinda crunch.

    Slim Jim's are not to be eaten on their own like that. They taste far better when you're on a beer binge.

    The best way to enjoy a Slim Jim is at 9:00 at night after you’ve been driving across Texas since 7:00 am and still have a few more hours to go.

    Mechanically separated chicken.
    The rubbish that's left after the breast,legs,wings and anything of value on chicken carcasses has been removed.
    Blown off the bones and collected into some kind of congealed mess.

    A Slim Jim is a cross between pepperoni and beef jerky. It seems pretty straightforward.

    I think the best way is to pull off the casing, and it is drunk food. The mini ones are better. The giant ones are fatty and greasy.
    Tabasco is horrible.

    I’m American and I have only heard of original ( of course) and tobacco. But the only reason you eat a slim Jim is to show how American you are 🤘🏻 🇺🇸 where my America’s at eating slim Jim’s and drinking Mountain Dew
