Krave Beef Jerky Sweet Chipotle
Made from authentic Mexican chipotle, this jerky brings together natural smokiness, a sensation of moderate heat, and a hint of honey to create the perfect balance of sweet and smoky. Tender slices of domestic beef are double marinated and then baked, resulting in an extraordinarily moist, soft and chewable jerky. Olé!see more...

When I was out and about getting groceries this past week I saw this Krave Beef Jerky in Sweet Chipolte. I like beef jerky normally, but rarely get it. For one, it would mean making a purchase with my own personal want in mind. But also, I'm trying to be healthy, and most jerky's are full of chemicals, preservatives, and nitrates. Imagine my surprise when I read that these were nitrate free. It isn't completely healthy (it's still a processed snack food), but it was worth it in my opinion to throw down the bucks to try it out.
It didn't last. It made it through the register, into the bag, into the car and that's as far as it got. I didn't even make it out of the stores parking lot before I sucked that bag down.
The meat is intensely moist. It doesn't state the cut of meat, but my husband had spent 10 years as a butcher and he swears that the cut was of superb quality to be that moist for jerky. It literally fell apart in your mouth. Not the normal chewy leather you grow accustomed to with commercial jerky products.
This particular flavor was wonderful as well. It wasn't overly sweet or spicy. It had just the right mixture. Another rare thing. It always seems you get too much of one flavor. But this had a nice balance. I will most certainly be buying more of this, as well as looking for and trying out the other flavors.
