It’s no secret that we’re pretty big fans of supporting local businesses. So, when it comes to Calgary’s very own Big Chief Meat Snacks celebrating their 50 year anniversary, you can say we’re pretty excited. Not only has this family-owned business been a pillar in our city’s history for five decades- they have been providing us with some pretty delicious snacks along the way. Seriously, you won’t catch us on a road trip without their Ultimate Road Trip Box!

And while they’re definitely no strangers to changing with the times, Big Chief has maintained both their family traditions, and their commitment to putting quality first! The company still uses 100% Canadian beef, just like they did in the good ol’ days. But, as much as Big Chief loves tradition, their innovation is what’s kept them fresh since 1971.

Naturally, celebrating the big 5-0 is a huge milestone, and it requires pulling out all the stops (and switching things up a bit!). That’s why the gang at Big Chief have just dropped not one, but two new flavours!

Black Pepper: A classic Black Pepper flavour… need we say more?

The good news doesn’t stop there, Calgary! While there’s no need to worry about your fave signature flavours going away with the addition of their latest line up, Big Chief Meat Snacks wants you to be the first to try out their new flavours. Starting now, they’re including samples of their new Black Pepper and Sweet & Spicy meat snacks to all online orders or if you spot the Big Chief truck driving around town, wave them down. Bert the Bull always has samples on hand! After all, what better way to celebrate your 50th birthday than to thank Calgarians that have supported them throughout the years!

So, if you’re looking to get your hands on a quick snack that satisfies, head to their site to order online or grab some from your closest Safeway, Sobeys, Calgary Co-Op or your local convenience store. Happy snackin, folks!
