Help Send FREE Slim Jims to the Troops…

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Wow – Slim Jim is still offering up this awesome promo that I posted about back in December! Just head on over to the Slim Jim site to write a message of encouragement to the troops and they’ll send them a Slim Jim along with your note. They will be sending up to 1,000,000 Slim Jims to the troops! How cool is that?! :D

*Slim Jim will donate up to $500,000 worth of product to the USO which amounts to over 1,000,000 Slim Jims consisting of a combination of Giant Sticks, Monster Sticks and Snack Sticks. Slim Jim will send up to 500,000 Slim Jims customized with thank you notes from consumers. Opportunity ends April 1, 2013.

(Thanks, Freebie Finding Mom!)

    i hope they’re not planning on sending them overseas…i’ve been told at the post office that no pork products (including slim jims – i tried!) can get through customs in iraq and afghanistan, due to religious laws…

    • Gen says:

      Really? I use to send my husband some with his care package all the times to Afgan and he had no problem receiving them

      • jessica says:

        Idk, that’s what they told me at the post office. I had a family member in Iraq and two friends in Afghanistan and was given a list of items by the post office that were forbidden into those countries. They had all requested slim Jim’s and pork rinds (among other things) but they made me take them out of the boxes and told me if those packages got checked at customs, they would.never make it to those soldiers because of those items.

          Slim Jim’s don’t have pork…

          • jessica says:

            Well then they need to change their ingredients label, because as of about 6 months ago it was still on there…

            • Fred says:

              Jessica…no need to get snippy….just pointing out that there is at least ONE product of theres that can be sent to the troops….so really, there is no need to worry, even though “SOME of their products do” (contain pork). Time to move on….(as I will as well)

            • Fred says:

              Slim Jim® Original Smoked Snack

            • jessica says:

              ok, if we are seriously going to go down the route of searching ingredients online…let me check their website for all of the roducts that DO contain pork…as i said, SOME of their products do, I remember reading the ingredients label at the post office.

              “When Male Spice Loss strikes, punch it in the face with a bite-sized dose of spicy, sausagey man-medicine. Made from 100% U.S. pork and beef, Slim Jim Sausage Bites offer bold, man-sized flavor in a small, easy-to-carry pouch.”

          • jessica says:

            Yes they do, or at least some varieties do. I remember looking through the ingredients label after they told me I couldn’t send them…

            • Em says:

              No, they don’t. I emailed Slim Jim after a controversy about it on our base, they told be specifically that none of their products do. The mail guy was wrong.

    • Amanda says:

      I sent my soldier slim Jim’s and he said he got them as well as everything else in the boxes and he is in afghan right now. I didn’t think you couldn’t send them so I never thought to ask, I just did. I sent the original kind also. I’m sure if it wasn’t aloud they wouldn’t send them.

  • lilly says:

    Thank you! Just think, if we all send one and ask a friend do the same, what a difference we can make. If you have access to a social networking site, that would be a cool bonus:)

  • Alexi says:

    I sent three… so far. Be creative, funny even. They get bored out there!!!! God Bless all who serve our country overseas… my Husband is set to deploy, again, in August. Maybe he’ll get one of our messages!!!!! Lol!

  • heinrude says:

    My husband should be home in a few weeks after a long year in Afghanistan. I send him many products that may have ‘hidden’ pork ingredients in them. I sent him slim Jim, cans of spam, variety jerky (venison, elk, beef, etc), ham in a can, hickory farms meat and cheese gifts, etc. They rarely keep a package for such a minuscule amount of pork in a product at customs. I have only had two packages opened, thoroughly inspected, and forwarded onto my husband and this is our fourth deployment. So the odds are not so high. They are mainly looking for alcohol and hidden contraband.

  • Madason says:

    Just wrote mine

  • Dena says:

    I sent my husband some when he was is Afghan, and i just didn’t disclose it on the customs paperwork that i was sending PORK, i listed it as snack items and everythign i sent made it there without getting inspected!

  • rashid says:

    You really should look into sending something a bit more healthy like a Chomps Snack Stick ( They are 100% grass-fed beef, no nitrates/nitrites, all natural. Only celery juice is used as a natural preservative.
