With more and more people becoming aware of preservatives and chemicals in our food, buying foods that are as natural and preservative free as possible is becoming the norm. We have been making our gourmet jerky without preservatives, added MSG or nitrites since 1999. Because of that we have been a favorite of gourmet connoisseurs for a long time. We are also a favorite for those that love giving our product as gifts. But we do get asked a lot how to choose the right product meat and flavor for gifts, so today we thought we would share some tips for you.
One thing to think about when choosing to give jerky as a gift is the person it is going to. Do they hunt or enjoy different meats on a regular basis or do they tend to eat the same type of foods? If they are adventurous with foods, then they will most likely love to try different exotic meats like Ostrich, Alligator, Kangaroo, Boar or Antelope. Our exotic meats are made with simple, basic ingredients so the meat flavor will shine through.
If your gift recipient tends to be a bit reserved when it comes to food choices, sticking with more traditional choices like Turkey, Buffalo, Beef, and Venison is probably a good choice. Many of these meats do come with different flavors like Teriyaki, Pepper, Garlic and some with more spicy tastes too. Choosing a flavor for someone else, I would tend to recommend sticking with a more mild than wild choice. All of our flavors are fabulous but the spicy ones I would let them choose unless I knew for certain that they love spice.
Our Salmon Jerky is a best seller and our other fish jerky’s are perfect for anyone that love fish. They are surprisingly delicious and have quickly become a favorite of many of our customers.
You can also let us help you choose buy gifting one of the jerky gift packs or samplers of product that we have put together for you. They offer a nice selection of product for a well rounded sampling off all sorts of different tastes.
