This may be the perfect review for our male readers, but yes ladies, I’m sure you’ll enjoy it too. KRAVE jerky is gourmet jerky with unbelievable flavor in amazing taste combinations. KRAVE makes beef, turkey, and pork jerky. I received some of their delicious jerkies in the following flavors; Black Cherry BBQ (Pork), Lemon Garlic (Turkey), Pineapple Orange (Beef), Basil Citrus (Turkey), and Chili Lime (Beef). Yummy! When I received my box from KRAVE, I truly didn’t realize the tantalizing taste-bud tango that would occur in my mouth.
Hands-down this is the best jerky I’ve ever had. The flavor is incredible and runs throughout the entire piece of meat, not just the outside. KRAVE is a very appropriate name for this jerky too as I found myself definitely KRAVE-ing now and again for it.
You may be wondering if jerky could possibly be good for you? KRAVE has the answer and it is resoundingly YES!!! Their jerkies are all 100 calories or less per serving. They’re also very low in fat and carbs and high in protein. I really enjoyed having these jerkies handy for a snack. A serving of KRAVE jerky was filling and yet didn’t fill me with guilt for having it. Also, each jerky I tried was extremely tender. There was one little exception as you’ll see noted below.
The Lemon Garlic Turkey Jerky was pure taste bud heaven. OMGoodness! If you are one who truly loves garlic, this is the jerky for you. KRAVE’s Lemon Garlic is loaded with this delicious herb and has a hint of lemon tagging along. The combination couldn’t be better.
Next up is KRAVE’s pork jerky. Whenever I think of barbecue, black cherry is not something that typically comes to mind. KRAVE has delightfully changed that. Their Black Cherry Barbecue Pork Jerky is hands-down a sweet treat of meat. This is also KRAVE’s newest flavor. You have all the expectations and taste of jerky, with the smoky remembrances of BBQ and to some, a new and sweet surprise of black cherry. If I could find, or be creative enough to create a black cherry BBQ sauce, I would be quite happy. KRAVE’s Black Cherry Barbecue is definitely a winner.
Alright my spicy friends, KRAVE’s Chili Lime beef jerky has all the kick and heat you’d expect from something made from chilies, chilies, and um, yeah, chilies. This Chili Lime jerky really does have a great kick, followed up by the lime, yet it’s not so hot that you can’t eat it. If you’re not one who enjoys a little heat in your food though, this jerky could be a bit much for you.
Only KRAVE could put together the flavors of pineapple and orange and in the end create a great tasting jerky. KRAVE’s Pineapple Orange Beef jerky is the perfect blend of sweet and tangy. With each bite I tasted the crispness of the orange citrus and the lusciousness of the pineapple. KRAVE has taken these two fruits and has allowed them to commingle into a perfect relationship.
I have always been fond of using citrus fruit with meat. Also, basil is an herb that is excellent to use in a variety of dishes. Combining the two can take your dish from bland to grand. KRAVE’s Basil Citrus Turkey jerky is a savory treat. Unlike the other types, this blend was a bit on the tough side, but I’m guessing it was just the selected pieces of turkey that ended up in my bag.
As I noted above, KRAVE has created a jerky that is low in fat and carbs and is actually good for you to eat; not to mention absolutely delicious! From their website here are some additional nutritional facts about KRAVE jerky.
