It has been quite a while since we had a beef jerky box in our house – so, Andy and I teamed up to test out these jerkys! Lindsey did a previous review of this box as well – you can check out her verdict from her June People’s Choice Jerky review.

Oh my – spoiler alert: this jerky was delicious and didn’t last 24 hours. While each was spicy, they never got too spicy for us.

Old Fashioned Hot & Spicy – 2.5 OZ

Our first jerky was rather straight-forward. Their old fashioned brand is just that, classic jerky with a bit of spice.

I really enjoyed that little bit of thickness to this beef jerky. It was really easy to eat, no pulling and grinding you teeth. Also, I haven’t had McDonalds in a while, but this had the taste of their beef patty (that I remember, at least) – overall, I really enjoyed this and assumed it’d be my favorite because I couldn’t stop “reviewing” it.

Tasting Kitchen Sriracha – 2.5 OZ

For my next birthday, I just want multiple one pound bags of this glorious jerky.

I wouldn’t consider myself incredibly tolerable to heat, so I was a bit wearing testing this. It was as easy to chew as the old fashioned but had a much better taste with a kick of Sriracha at the end. This was my absolute favorite of the month – I was unbelievably disappointed when this was gone.

Classic Hot & Spicy – 3 OZ

We went from my favorite to my least favorite with this one. It wasn’t my least favorite due to taste – it was pretty tasty – it was my least favorite because it was thin like a rawhide and it felt the same way when chewing it.

If you want your work cut out for you while eating jerky, this would be your pick.

Carne Seca Limón con Chile – 2.5 OZ

Their ‘Carne Seca’ lin is inspired by their local surroundings – downtown LA.

I wasn’t sure what to expect – but it delivered a refreshing sweetness since the jerky retained a lot of moistness. While it had some spice, it would be on the low-end of my spicy-o-meter.

Tasting Kitchen Sweet Chili Habanero – 2.5 OZ

Our final beef jerky to review was another sweeter jerky. It had a lot of the same taste as the last one, which was not a bad thing at all. While it wasn’t my favorite, it was a nice and soft jerky with some sweetness and kick, I’d definitely eat it again.

100% Beef Stick Hot & Spicy

The final item of the box was a beef stick, similar to a Slim Jim.

peoples-choice-some-like-it-hot-jerky-box-2016-0021

It was exactly what you’d expect – yet not too hot and not too spicy.

Verdict: After getting a taste of this jerky, our general consensus was 1) absolutely delicious and 2) can we do more jerky reviews? These tasting boxes are a great way to dip your toes into what People’s Choice offer – they even offer a ‘One-Of-Everything’ box to taste their full selection! I’m excited to buy a bag of the Sriracha jerky and review more of their tasting boxes!

Are you interested in more jerky boxes – are there any you’d like to see reviewed?

  1. Hi, Eric. I had a question about the pricing. I went to the links on this page, but all of the boxes listed are $9 more expensive on the website than what you have listed. (I’m pretty sure that those prices on the website don’t include shipping either since they say shipping is $10 extra for orders in the $24-$84 range.) Did they raise the prices after this review?

  2. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate this posting! My husband has a birthday that’s close to Christmas so I always feel like I’m scrambling to find gifts and this is another perfect one! Can you tell me if the promo code for 15% off has a time restriction? I’d like to order a little closer to Christmas. Thanks so much!

    • We’re reaching out to find out and will let you know when we have more information. Thanks!

    • We’ve just confirmed that the coupon is good through the end of the year!

      • That is such awesome news. I can’t thank you enough!!!
