The ‘Health Nut’ box packed in 6 jerky products ranging from spicy to mild!
This delivery had something new for me – shredded beef jerky! None of these disappoint!
Traditional Shredded Beef Jerky – Value $6
Speaking of shredded jerky – here it is!
This can be used to toss into recipes, like your morning eggs, or to just use as jerky chew. Mmmmmm, jerky chew. It’s delicious!
Old Fashion Original Beef Jerky – Value $6
This is a simple, 100% USA beef, jerky – and it doesn’t get much better for me.
I find myself gravitating to the Old Fashioned People’s Choice brand more than any other. While I like a bit of spice – this stuff is just too good to be eaten second. My suggestion – start with this jerky and then branch out.
Old Fashioned Hot & Spicy Beef Jerky – Value $6
Sticking with the Old Fashion line – we also got a hot & spicy selection.
This is the same style jerky as above – with a spice blend featuring cracked red pepper. Not a ton of spice – but just enough for a little kick.
Carne Seca Limon Con Chile – Value $6
The rest of the selections start to get into bolder flavors. We received two from the Carne Seca line:
The Carne Seca line is inspired by the diverse culinary tradition of Downtown Los Angeles. Focused on bold flavors, fresh ingredients, and simple techniques, our Carne Seca products feature all natural ingredients and a simplified process to showcase the deliciousness of traditional Carne Seca.
This line also includes the cracked red peppercorn, but adds onto that with some guajillo chili powder – all of that is marinated in lemon juice and topped of with a bit of lime. If it sounds like a lot of tastes, you’ll be surprised that no one ingredient is overwhelming – just a lot of tasty.
Carne Seca Limon – Value 6
This is the second from the Carne Seca line – and this selection is on the mild side compared to the jerky above.
It features the spice blend, but the cracker red pepper and chili powder is absent. That leaves you with a basic jerky, but a little taste citrus.
Tasting Kitchen: Sriracha – Value $6
The last bag of jerky was a favorite from past boxes – so I was happy to find it in here! Sriracha beef jerky – do I need to say more?
Obviously, you’re going to have to like Sriracha to enjoy this jerky. But if you do, this jerky provides all of the spicy and taste pop you’d expect – and the jerky itself is nice and thick cut. This is easily my favorite outside of the Old Fashioned jerky line!
Verdict: There’s no denying that the jerky is just incredible. But the value is way off for this box – buying all six of these items individually is cheaper that the cost of the box – so I’m not sure what the benefit of the box is. While the boxes are an excellent sampler of People’s Choice’s product – the value would have to at least equal the amount paid separately – hopefully they adjust it moving forward.
