What is the Story Behind Slim Jim Beef Sticks?
Invented by Adolph Levis in 1929 Philadelphia, PA, the beef Slim Jim was first put into production in the 1940's. Levis, a young entrepreneur, saw that customers at bars consistently bought pepperonis and wanted to create a similar meaty product that could compete. And because Levis observed this, the Slim Jim Original beef sticks were first sold in bars. Even though he was a high school dropout, Levis' entrepreneurial skills made his career takeoff when he sold his company to the very successful General Mills company (which later merged with Goodmark Foods) in 1967. After being taken over by General Mills, Slim Jim snack sticks started being made in Raleigh, NC. The salty and filling snack was a hit among Americans who were steering away from carb-heavy snacks and sugary sweets.
Slim Jim Original meat sticks became even more of a household name thanks to former spokesman and professional wrestler "Macho Man" Randy Savage, who would exclaim, "Snap into a Slim Jim!" to fans. Now owned by ConAgra, Slim Jim Original meat sticks continue to be a savory favorite of kids and adults alike.
What is a Fun Fact About Slim Jim Snack Sticks?
Did you know that "Slim Jim" wasn't the original name of Levis' Slim Jim beef sticks? It's true. In his 2001 Associated Press obituary, it's revealed that Levis originally called his Slim Jim snack sticks "Penn Rose" after his home state of Pennsylvania. The name, however, didn't catch on and Levis later renamed his product to the moniker we know and love today.
