Krave Jerky Review and Giveaway

I love beef jerky, but sometimes I get a little bored with the same old standard flavors. Luckily, I found a new brand of Jerky that offers the hearty meat flavor I crave and all the awesome texture of moist tender jerky in an assortment of gourmet flavors.

Jerky has long been considered a rustic food. Not anymore. With Krave Jerky, now it is a gourmet experience.

I have tried 5 flavors so far, and I can say that each flavor is distinctly unique and delicious. Definitely now your average jerky.

Sweet Chipotle:

Out of the flavors I have tried, this may be my favorite(so hard to choose though). I love that this is a balance of spicy and sweet. Not too sweet of course, but this is also not too spicy for me. I do not like super spicy foods. I love that this has a kick but does not set my mount on fire.

This is super moist and tender without loosing the texture that makes this jerky. Super satisfying any time. This is the perfect flavor for anyone who can handle milk to medium heat.

Chili Lime:

This is probably my second favorite flavor. I expected this would be spicier than it actually is(which is good, because I don't like too spicy).

The lime flavor is subtle and give the perfect highlight to the medium chili flavor. This flavor is bold and unique.

Of course the texture is moist meaty and tender with the still slightly chewy texture that jerky is famous for.

Garlic Chili Pepper:

This is the spiciest out of the flavors I tried. It does have a good flavor, but it is too spicy to be one I would eat often. If you like your jerky with a bold spicy flavor, this is the choice for you.

Not for spice wimps like myself, but a great flavor combination and great depth of flavor, this is not just hot for the sake of being hot like some are.

Basil Citrus(Turkey):

I love turkey jerky, but I have never had anything like this before. The name actually had me a little apprehensive. I figured it would be overbearing of something, but this flavor is wonderful.

While this is packed with flavor, it is not overbearing and the Basil Citrus flavor was much better than I imagined.

This turkey jerky is very special in that it actually tastes like real turkey. I've tried many others that taste good and you know it is turkey jerky, but they taste nothing like a turkey you would buy for thanksgiving. This really does taste like turkey breast.

I recommend this to any turkey lover and basil citrus lover and anyone who wants a really yummy unique jerky experience. Plus this is FAT FREE. Need I say more.

Smoky Grilled Teriyaki(pork):

This is the sweetest and least spicy of all the flavors. It has a wonderful brown sugar taste complimented perfectly by the soy sauce.

If you like spicy more savory jerky, this is not for you, but if sweet teriyaki is your thing, this will be the best jerky you've every tried.

I love this flavor. Teriyski is one of the few "standard" flavors of jerky, but this is far from standard, more like stand out.

The lack of heat makes this perfect for everyone, even kids.(my 1 year old daughter loved this when I broke of little pieces for her).

Every flavor of Krave Jerky is made with top quality meat that is natural and minimally processed. Krave Jerky contains NO artificial ingredients or nitrates. It is low in fat(or fat free in the case of turkey), and a good source of protein, making it a snack that you can feel great about enjoying.

I really love how on the back of each flavor there is a heat meter to let you know what you can expect the spice level to be(so you don't get overwhelmed). This is also on the website so you can know before ordering.

Every flavor is moist and tender with the perfect chewy, meaty texture that makes it irresistibly good and distinctly jerky.

You can order single bags, samplers or even enroll in a monthly club to have this wonderful jerky delivered right to your door every month. What better gift for any man(or woman) in your life? With the holidays coming up, it is a no brainer.

My gift to you? the chance to win a 5 pack sampler of your own. Just enter the rafflecopter below. Good luck.
