Perky Jerky Review and Giveaway!




Perky Jerky is an all natural premium jerky. It is made from tender cuts of your choice of beef or turkey, then left to marinate over night to develop a deep rich flavor. Perky Jerky is a low calorie, low/no fat, low carb snack, that is also loaded with protein. This jerky contains no nitrates, preservatives, or added MSG. At just 50 or 90 calories a serving, this is the perfect snack to add to your pre-workout routine, or to power-up your body before a night on the town. 



Perky Jerky recently generously sent be four bags of jerky to review. I received two bags of 2.2oz  Ultra Premium Beef Perky Jerky and two bags of Ultra Premium Turkey Perky Jerky. Each bag contains 2 servings of jerky Both flavors were delicious! I don't think I would have originally purchase turkey jerk before testing it, but I am glad I got the chance to try it. I will certainly be buying a lot more turkey jerky. Of the two different kinds of jerky that I received the turkey was my favorite. Both had a nice hint of pepper to them. The texture was nice, and it was tender. It didn't taste like the cheap jerky they have near the registers in supermarket stores. 

 The Beef Jerky from Perky Jerky is made from whole slices of beef, and is marinated in soy sauce, brown sugar, lemon juice, garlic powder, Worcester sauce, and other seasonings. Each 2.2oz bag contains 2 servings at 90 calories each. Per serving you can expect  2 grams of fat, 250mg of sodium, 25mg of cholesterol, 11 grams of protein.
The turkey jerky is made from turkey that is marinated in many of the same ingredients as the beef jerky. Each 2.2oz bag of turkey jerky contains 2 servings at 50 calories each. There is no fat, 20mg of cholesterol, 110mg of soduim, and 9 grams of protein. 
Even my cats were desperate for some!

What makes this jerky so Perky? Perky Jerky is made with Guarana, which is a little berry found in the amazon that is often an ingrediant in many energy drinks.
