Perky Jerky {Review & Giveaway}


The other day, I posted about Mr. B & I going for a hike with Odin along Hay Creek. If you haven't read it yet, click here. When preparing for our hike, I decided to take two bags of jerky sent to us by the awesome folks over at Perky Jerky to try. I figured it would be a nice treat for us to have once we reached the top of where we were going.

We reached unnamed lake & I pulled out the two bags of jerky. One pack of Turkey Jerky, the other pack, Beef. Before I tell you how amazing this jerky was, let me tell you a little bit about Perky Jerky.

Perky Jerky is all natural, low calorie, low fat, low carb & loaded with protein. It is flavored with Guarana. Guarana is derived from a South American tree & has the highest concentration of caffeine in any plant. This caffeine is what puts the Perky in the Perky Jerky. Not only does the Guarana put some pep in your step, but it adds an incredible moisture to the jerky as well. Perky Jerky has no nitrites, preservatives or added MSG which is one reason why I couldn't wait to try it.


The Beef Perky Jerky has 90 calories, 2g of fat, 530mg of sodium, 5g of sugar & a whopping 11g of protein in a single 1 oz serving. It's lighter counterpart, the Turkey Perky Jerky has 50 calories, 0g fat, 110mg sodium, 2g of sugar, & 9g of protein in the same 1 oz serving.

I decided to include Mr. B in the review of this product, since I know how much he loves Jerky. Can you guess which of the two Perky Jerky packs he claimed as his own?


The Beef Jerky is real good, but honestly Mr. B can have it! I really liked the Turkey Perky Jerky the best! Which was obvious, since I kinda-sorta-maybe ate the entire bag! Hey, I burned 851 calories on the hike... The jerky was only 100 calories for the entire bag... it's really not as bad as it sounds (or looks). Ha!


Now the great folks over at Perky Jerky would like to give one of my readers a pack of their very own Jerky to try (if you manage to keep it away from the Mr.)! One lucky reader will win a 1oz Beef, Turkey, or mixed caddy. Just fill out the rafflecopter form below & good luck!
