It all began with Dan Bellrichard Founder of Sogosnacks which is a family owned business in the picturesque town of Decorah, IA with a population of 8,000 that's encompassed by farmland and bluffs making it a popular area for living the simple life and for it's organic food production.
Sogosnacks are a healthier meat stick that's not only packed with protein but great flavor as well.
The name Sogo was developed in the early years as a Peace Corps volunteer in Mali, West Africa where the name Sogo means "meat" in the Bambara language which is a language Dan acquired throughout his daily work.
The tree on the Sogosnacks packaging is the outline of a Baobob tree which can be found throughout West Africa and Mali, the leaves from the trees are then tossed into a sauce for the primary meal known as To.
Sogosnacks company was born in August of 2016 whereas the development of the business was built through careers and journeys throughout 15 years.
Dan left a large corporation career to pursue his life long dream of owning his own company alongside his wife Liza and three beautiful daughters Lulu (8) Poppy (7) and Solveig (10months).
Dan himself provided me with Sogosnacks to review and I couldn't wait to snap into them the flavors alone simply made my mouth water.

Think of the flavors of a tart yet juicy pineapple smothered in a sweet sticky barbeque sauce, simply perfection in each bite with a hint of smokiness. This Sogosnack meat stick was my favorite and I am not just saying that because pineapple is my all time favorite fruit...Ok maybe I am it's just so good!
The Smokey Sweet meat stick reminded me of spare ribs from my local Chinese food restaurant succulent, flavorful, smoky yet sweet !
I usually am not a fan of spicy foods but the kick from the Jalapeno along with the tender meat was flavorful in scrambled eggs!
I loved the blend of spices along with the pungent aroma of garlic
Each Sogosnacks meat stick was unique in it's own special way with smoky, sweet or spicy flavors from the touch of honey in the original with fiery peppers, or the tart juicy pineapple in the Barbeque pineapple, the kick of Jalapeno or the blend of peppers along with garlic.
I received no compensation for this post but was provided with Sogosnacks to facilitate this review in exchange for my honest opinions which in fact are my own.
