Celebrate National Jerky Day with Golden Island Review & Giveaway -- ENDED

If you ask my husband what his favorite snacks are, jerky will definitely be one of his top three answers. Every time we go somewhere, if he sees a new brand of jerky he hasn't tried or a favor he has not tasted, it's a sure bet that it will be in our shopping cart. Now, imagine how exciting it must be for a man who loves jerky to receive a box of 6 different kinds of jerky to review. My husband was over the moon!

June 12 is National Jerky Day! National Jerky Day celebrates the rich history and popularity of this protein-packed snack. As snacking in America is on the rise and consumers look for healthier on-the-go options, Jerky is the ideal alternative to sugary, greasy pre-packaged snack foods. To celebrate this big day, the company generously sent us some of their jerky to try.
As I have mentioned before, my husband loves jerky, so as soon as the box arrived, he opened up every single package to try all 6 favors. Out of all of them, his favorites were Chili Lime and Korean Barbecue. For the Chile Lime, you could taste the chili and the lime. DH said that it reminded him a lot of Thai food. The Korean Barbecue jerky was sweet and spicy so it was a huge hit with him. Personally, I like the Mandarin  Orange the best. I think it is because the favor reminds me so much of how jerky tastes in Taiwan. DD loves the Hickory Black Pepper, the taste is more traditional, it is the classic favor that everyone likes. The Grilled Barbeque was pretty tasty. Teriyaki jerky, in comparison, was not we had expected. It was more sweet than what I would have liked, but DD thought that it tasted great.

All in all, we are very impressed by the jerky from Golden Island. If you are ready for big, strong and bold favors, then you need to give the company a try! 

Many thanks to Golden Island. The company has generously offered a box of all 6 different favors of jerky as giveaway prizes to one of my lucky reader. This giveaway ends on June 26, 2013.
