You know what meh, I almost bought this. As I saw it I thought if they have Carolina Reaper jerky I will buy 10 of them. Sure enough I am disappointed and without a t shirt. Please sell me the clothes off your back now.
@Superllama7 Meh, $40 bucks shipped will still buy 2lbs of some really high end stuff and you can mix flavors. I think this experiment is a bust but people do like to jerky and impulse buys so who knows.
@mike808 I haven’t tried this jerky so I can’t say from personal experience that it’s “worth it,” and I like Costco and all (just spent $250 there today! – not on Jerky though.) But the argument is that I can buy a large bag of “pretty OK product” or spend more and get a small amount of “supposedly hopefully artisan great product” for a higher price.
Same reason people go to $50/person restaurants (I guess even that is cheap these days, especially when you toss in the $80 wine) when there is a Golden Corral or Old Country Buffet nearby with all-you-can-eat for $12.
I do like supporting small-batch “artisan” products (overused word these days – when I saw Budweiser make an “artisan” beer – that’s pretty much the end for coolness of that word). There has been a trend among big companies to say “put it in a small bag with a nice label and charge twice as much” and it seems to work.
If thIs was a mixed pack, I’d be all over it. I prefer lawless.anyone know how the tenderization and spice blooming is vs them? (I love how supple lawless is,I hate how under bloomed their spice blends are.)
@Jamileigh17 the first thing I looked for was a variety pack option. Buying something you’re unsure about in bulk is a way harder sell than a variety pack of something you might find awesome at the same price. But you can’t win 'em all and this probably saves the warehouse staff some sanity.
I just did an Amazon subscribe and save for 8 packs of bacon jerky for $5. Fairly certain it is an error and they will send one pack. Then I will bitch and they will refund my money. Zero dollars per pound jerky! Score!
@nolrak@sammydog01 Received yesterday and much to my surprise, it was an 8 pack of jerky. That has to be the best deal I have picked up in some time. Although, still more expensive than a free pack would have been.
I had rouen y gastric bypass (weight loss ) surgery 11 yrs ago. I have tried Many different jerkies dislike all except OLD WISCONSIN Turkey Bites. 1 oz only 80 calories. Less than 1 carb. 7g Protein. 300 mg sodium. They r mild not hot. Taste delicious. And a 4 oz bag (113 g) Only costs $2.94 at Walmart.
The MSRP shown in comparison is actually a coupon price. The site shows $29.96 for the 4 packs, $26.96 with subscribe and save. The $23.96 would be a 4 pack plus using the 20% off code they’ll give you for your email address. So this price is 40% off of MSRP, for the percentage hunters out there. 25% off of coupon price. And 16.5% off of coupon plus subscribe and save.
I Googled this jerky to see if I could find any reviews or anyone else selling it. What I discovered is that they’ve been doing some serious blog marketing. Lots of presumably paid puff pieces (and YouTube videos, but that lacks alliteration).
@speediedelivery likely not, only because our warehouse isn’t meant to store food so this was a buy-what-we-sell kind of thing. Though if the positive reviews keep rollin’ in, it might be on meh again!
When I talked to my wife the other night while I was out of town, she said she got a bunch of packages and was opening them up when she realized she didn’t remember ordering a ton of beef jerky.
When I got home tonight I checked them out. She took a bag of jalapeno to take to work, and I opened one. I thought it was really good and the beef is nice and tender. She thought it was too hot so she put the bag back and took a bag of mesquite bbq instead. I cracked one of those and tried it, and it’s as good as the jalapeno and nice and smoky. They both way outclass what you can get at retail from anywhere that’s not a jerky specialist (Buc-ee’s included).
My wife said that Meh should pay me a commission for suggesting it. I told her I’d only take it in beef jerky like that old bubble tape commercial.
If they come out with a Sriracha beef, get that one in on the next offer. Bacon jerky’s not my thing but I am down for some Sriracha.
