File Under TMI: What's in a Slim Jim

Wired reveals what none of us ever wanted to know: exactly what's inside a Slim Jim. The good news? It contains beef. (According to the article: "It's real meat, all right. But it ain't Kobe.") The bad news? It also contains "mechanically separated chicken," lactic acid starter culture, dextrose, more than one-sixth of your daily recommended intake of sodium, as well as sodium nitrite, and hydrolyzed soy. Now, are you sure you still want to snap into that?
