Krave Jerky

Have any of you guys tried this brand before? I just tried their Cherry BBQ pork one and am blown away. To be honest, I've never had jerky before (I wasn't a huge meat eater before going Paleo, so the idea of dried meat kind of skeeved me out) but I figured I needed a high protein snack option that wasn't eggs (I eat a lot of them). Anyway, I loved the taste, but at $5 for 3 oz at my local Safeway, I'm a little overwhelmed by the price. Does anyone know of any cheaper brands that are still high quality, or know of a place where I could get a good price online? I realize people will probably recommend I make my own...I know I should, but I just can't bring myself to do it. I'm still just getting over my being grossed out by meat, and I tend to just slip ground beef, fish or chicken breasts right from the packaging onto a foil wrapper or the skillet...I don't do well with anything that involves teaching raw flesh :/

I know it's got a bit more sugar than is ideal, but I find when I'm super busy, there are days when I really only manage to get some turkey sausage, eggs and bacon as my real protein sources, so beef jerky is a good option. And a lot of the more "hardcore" jerky is CRAZY expensive (like Steve's Paleo stuff)

that's great about the new recipe!! i've seen other jerkys go for about $10 for that same weight online. i still haven't made my own yet either. it's mostly laziness but i really should haha i love being able to just buy something in the store sometimes for convenience sake.

Ah, I see. As I said, I haven't ever really been in the market for jerky before and was just a little taken aback by the cost, but I guess I'll just have to suck it up/only buy occasionally if that's the case.

Btw I read on their website that they recently changed their recipe to be entirely gluten free, and the new ingredient list appears to be soy free as well. I would HIGHLY recommend it. It's DELICIOUS and I got a bunch of very girly, non-jerky eating conventionally "health-conscious" twenty somethings to devour along with me!

Making jerky is pretty simple although if you have that queasiness it makes it a tough process. The thing about Krave and most commercial brands is the sugar, I really don't want to eat sweetened beef. It is a good tasting product for those that don't like the taste of dried meat which is pretty concentrated in flavor. It was pretty cheap at Costco last time I went, which is rare since I'm not a member.

i've seen this brand at target and that is an excellent price for jerky. no way are you gonna find it cheaper if you want grass fed/organic. i'm pretty sure krave uses soy and that's why i didn't buy it.
