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 :/

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.
