The Klement Sausage Company founded National Snack Stick Day (September 23rd) to celebrate on-the-go snacks for making on-the-go lives possible! These little portions of smoked sausage are a convenient source of protein to take with you on a hike or throw in your gym bag, satisfy mid-morning hunger pangs and are easily shared after school, after work or anytime. With a variety of flavorful choices, snack sticks have the whole family covered. From sweet to spicy and everything in between, this savory snack was made for busy people. The Registrar at National Day Calendar approved the day in 2016.
On September 23rd be sure your pockets, backpacks, and desk drawers are stocked so you can observe National Snack Stick Day! Kick back, chew on your favorite snack stick and raise a toast to all those who set out to satisfy the taste buds of tradition. Use #NationalSnackStickDay to share on social media.
Klement's was established in 1956 by three brothers, John, George and Ron Klement in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and continues to be operated under the family name, employing over 350 people in two plants. The company has grown from a small sausage kitchen to one of the largest producers of fine, old world sausage products.
Klement's believes in handcrafted production – meticulously making delicious sausage products the way it used to be done in the butcher shops in the Old World. A small batch focus and "made with care philosophy" supports a compelling attraction for consumers who seek artisan food experiences. The company manufacturers fresh sausages, cooked and smoked sausages, summer sausages and snack sticks.
