    good. because that shit rules.

    fact: most often it has about 80-90 calories per seving.
    fact: high in protein.
    fact: low in fat.
    fact: delicious.

    one of my favorite readily available brands is krave. it's natural, "minimally processed," and best of all, no nitrates so i can eat it every day. that sweet chipotle is tits. they also make pork jerky and bacon jerky.

    jack link's is ok in a pinch but i don't see what the fuss is about or why they sell it pretty much everywhere. it has nitrates and nitrates are bad, mmkay?

    omg there's another jerky called lawless jerky company that i think sells in the pacific nw in stores, but otherwise you have to order online and they only take paypal online, so i haven't had it yet. it's all grass fed organic no nitrate beef jerky.

    but...they have a sweet sriracha jerky, a pho jerky, honey chipotle, japanese curry, and a ton of other killer flavors that i want to try so bad.

    We started having to make our own jerky for our dog, so we started making our own too. It's pretty fucking good.

    it's the best. that krave jerky is a bit moister than most jerky so it's very tender. but it's not the best texture if you like really dry, chewy jerky. i love it though.

    if i have to go with jack link's, i go with the sweet and spicy. they have a new one called maverick or something like that that's sweet and bold and tender, but it's only ok.
