My husband does a great job at checking ingredients and finding new things for me to try. I can't tell you how happy I was when he found this jerky. A business local to Chicago, Prevail Beef Jerky checks all of the boxes:
- gluten free
- msg free
- soy free
- grassfed...and wait for it...grassfinished!
- no nitrities/nitrates
...and it checks some boxes that I was pleasantly surprised to see:
- Keto Certified
- Certified Paleo
- More than GF: certified Gluten-Free member of Gluten-Free Manufacturing program (GFMP), recognized by The National Celiac Association aka Celiac approved (If you weren't aware, just plain old gluten free allows for a small percentage of gluten in products)
- Allergy friendly (see list above)
- Small batches
Okay, so, that's all information you can get from the packaging and website. But, what about taste? Texture? Freshness? Let me tell you, I have been a connoisseur of travel snacks for as long as I can remember. That means I have had a lot of jerky in my time (and, other similar items, like biltong).
Prevail jerky tastes really good! All of their SKU's are delicious! The flavors they offer are original, spicy, lemongrass, and umami -- or try them all in a variety pack! It's hard to choose a favorite, but honestly, the original is hard to beat compared to other "original" or "plain" jerky's I have tasted. I have even made my own jerky before and this beats that, not to mention the time it takes!
To me, this is the Goldilocks of jerky! A lot of jerkys are too tough or fibrous-y for me. Prevail has an easy-to-eat-the-whole-bag texture. I find it's the perfect serving size whether I need to use it as the main protein for my meal or just as a snack!
Every bag of jerky tastes like it was just made. I have encountered an innumerable amount of moldy jerkys in my time...which let me tell you, when that is the only thing you have with you while you're traveling and you have a mold filled bag, disappointment and grossed-outness are through the roof. Not to mention, hangry-ness!
This jerky checks all of my boxes and I bet it checks yours too! Buy online and use
Be sure to let me know which flavor is your favorite and as always, #GetSatiated!
