I'm going to have to sit and think on this one, reviews seem to be all over the place. I am a little bit of a jerky snob, getting our meats from hunting trips with Dad processed by a local butcher while growing up in Texas, always having some made into Jerky. Venison, wild boar, turkey...

At the same time, big fan of the Sebastiani family and my curiosity is leaning me towards supporting them on this one. As someone mentioned, it is available in Brooklyn so I may go pick up a smaller amount to sample before diving in on this many flavors.

I've had these before, and I wouldn't call them jerky so much as "meat candy" because of all the sugar they add. This makes the jerky quite sticky.

At least this batch doesn't contain any of the flavors they use dye in as well, or have they stopped doing that now? I still question some of the ingredients they add, like why would you add artificial sweeteners to your jerky?

At a guess, making it sweet and savory. Kind of like when you have a Sweet & Sour Chinese dish.

They're not picking on me. They're summoning me!

It's Thursday everyone. Non-wine just like every other Thursday. So shut up with the complaining and come back in 13 hours so you can complain about the wine that's being offered.

I picked up some Krave jerky because it was at the register at my local Walgreen's a week or so ago. I couldn't eat it, it was just too sweet for me. The surface of the jerky had lots of crystalline sugar on it and dominated the flavor.

I bought a Krave Jerky Sampler from woot in the past and it was not good. I tried all the flavors, 2 of them went directly in the trash, one bag got an extra nibble or 2 before it went in the trash, 1 flavor actually got completely eaten. The ones that are labeled 'sweet' are seemingly covered in maple syrup. One bag bag that I 'threw in the trash (read: gave to my roommate) was covered in ants within 2 days. Ants, first stop, beef jerky!

In my opinion this stuff is way way overseasoned and over sweetened. Easy pass.

While this is somewhat of a stretch, I suppose it's not such a stretch to leverage one's brand in this respect. I suppose I would just prefer to see actual wine here as opposed to aged meat.

This is the nth time that these have appeared on Woot, in various shades and combinations. Reviews are either:
a) Awesome. Some wooters think this is the best jerky: EVAH!! Amazing flavors.

b) Completely awful. Those that don't like it dislike the consitiency (described as "mushy"), or the overly sweet and overpowering flavorings. Others have pointed out that some versions use high fructose corn syrup (I just checked, it's still there in some flavors).

I still haven't bought any yet, mainly due to the concern that I'm not going to like it and it is rather expensive for what you get.

If you like moist beef jerky that has lots of flavor and sweetness this is for you. If you like hard beef jerky in which you want to taste meat and less flavor this is not for you. Our local supermarket sells this very same brand and size for $6.99 a package, so this is a great price at $3.00 a package (that takes in account the cost of shipping too).

I got this about a year ago... it is some FINE jerky. Never had anything like it.
Each flavor is a special snowflake.

My least favorite was the sweet chipotle. It tasted great, but it was sticky and thin. However, saying it was my least favorite is like saying that the great wall of china is my least favorite 3,000 mile man made structure... this stuff is just amazing. in for 3. again.

Just got mine today. Commenting for future reference.

1) A little disappointment upon opening the package. I didn't read closely enough - the packages are 1.5 oz each. I bought in part because I thought I was getting a deal - my local grocery store sometimes has Krave on sale for $4.99 for a 3.25 (or so) oz package. Turns out that's a better price given the size of these.

2) I've tried all 4 of these flavors previously. So far, I've tried pork teriyaki and turkey basil citrus from the pack I got today. The "sticky, sweet" comments are applicable to the pork, less so to the turkey.

3) Interestingly, when I had the pork previously, the sugar had crystallized a bit on the jerky. That wasn't the case here - this seemed a bit fresher than what I've had from the grocery store.

4) The turkey was tender, but did seem a bit chewier than the pork.

5) I doubt I'll re-order this at this price point, simply because the fresher quality isn't something that's a big enough factor for jerky to put that much money into ordering. I can see it being worth trying if people are interested in a sweeter jerky.

6) Based on other comments here and on personal experience, your mileage may vary with this.
