Krave Jerky Smoky Grilled Teriyaki

Krave Jerky is a brand of premium jerky. They make beef jerky, they make turkey jerky, and apparently they also make pork jerky. And that’s what Smoky Grilled Teriyaki is. It’s pork. You can tell by the smell that it’s pork and not beef. It’s really sweet. It’s like eating candied pork or a stale slice of ham. You can’t really taste any smoke or teriyaki flavors. It’s just overpriced sweetened hunks of dried pork. It’s worth trying because it’s a different type of jerky than you’re used to, but it’s only worth trying once. It’s kind of a disappointing experience. I also think that the minimize the fact that it’s pork on the package. It seems like it would be too easy for somebody to grab it without realizing that it’s pork. And that’s not kosher.

Krave Lemon Garlic Turkey Jerky

Krave is a brand of gourmet jerky from Sonoma, California. Lemon Garlic Turkey Jerky is just one of their many unique offerings. Most of the time I prefer beef jerky over turkey jerky, but I’m not opposed to turkey jerky by any means. And I really enjoy the fact that turkey jerky rhymes. But I digress… my initial response upon opening the bag was being amazed at how moist and tender the jerky was. All the pieces stick together, but they pull apart easily. It’s sweeter and less salty than most jerky, and not really spicy at all. The lemon and garlic flavors are well balanced, but the jerky leaves a greasy residue on your fingers, similar to some potato chips. It loses a few points for the finger residue, but this is a good jerky.
