LIVE YOUR MISSION | #015: Sugar-free gum that gives back? Tyler Merrick made it happen!

LIVE YOUR MISSION | #015: Sugar-free gum that gives back? Tyler Merrick made it happen!

This week Peter talks with Tyler Merrick, founder of a chewing gum company, "Project7" which gives back to 7 areas of need: Healing the sick, saving the Earth, housing the homeless, feeding the hungry, quenching the thirsty, teaching the misfortunate, and hoping for peace. Listen to why you should approach growing your business through "chapters", learn to throw ego out of the window, and focus on adapting to the rapidly-changing markets. Tyler agrees that success means winning everywhere... even if a bag of Carolina Reaper tries to defeat you!

The SPICIEST Grass Fed Beef Jerky Out There!

Mission Meat Carolina Reaper Beef Jerky

Do you think you can handle the heat?! The Carolina Reaper Beef Jerky combines our ultra-tender 100% grass fed & finished beef paired with the worlds hottest pepper to deliver an inferno of heat and flavor that is unmatched. It's sweet, sticky, and so good you won't want to put it down! 

Forget the other guys, you'll never want another brand of beef jerky ever again! All our premium jerkies are handmade in small batches to ensure perfection piece after piece. 

The Carolina Reaper pepper measures in at 1,500,000 Scoville (a jalapeño comes in at only 5000) so this jerky is not for the faint of heart! EAT WITH CAUTION!! 

To really put this supremely spicy jerky to the test, we had one of our co-founders, Peter, down a whole bag! Click here to check out his review & reaction below! (Be sure to watch until the end 😂)

You can order your Carolina Reaper jerky here, and don't forget to share how well YOU handle the heat by tagging #missionreaper. We'll pick a winner each month for a bundle of Mission Meat goodies!
