Golden Island Jerky Review And Giveaway

Thanks to Golden Island Jerky for providing free samples for review purposes.

Golden Island Jerky Review - And Giveaway

Do you get tired of the same old snacking ideas?  My family does.  We like something besides the chips and what not, so I was thrilled when contacted to review a great product called Golden Island Jerky.

A little about Golden Island Jerky:  Golden Island Jerky is the nation's leading brand and producer of gourmet jerky products.  It is headquartered in Rancho Cucamonga, CA.  They are a third-generation family-owned business with over 60 years of specialty meat experience.  Golden Island kettle cooks its beef and flame grills its pork jerky in small batches with no preservatives, ensuring that all flavors are authentic and delicious representations of the ingredients they are inspired by.  Each serving of Golden Island Jerky contains up to 8 grams of protein and 40 to 60% less sodium than most other jerkies.

If you have tried other jerky brands before, you may be interested to know that Golden Island Jerky is a whole lot better.  The flavors are so real and natural, unlike others that we have had before.  Golden Island Jerky has a soft and chewy texture, not tough and rubbery, like other jerky you usually find.  Also, if you want gluten free jerky they have that available in Mandarin Orange and Korean Barbecue flavors.

I got to try six varieties of Golden Island Jerky including the following:

Flame Grilled Korean Barbecue (gluten free)
Flame Grilled Teriyaki
Flame Grilled Barbecue
Kettle Cooked Mandarin Orange (gluten free)
Kettle Cooked Hickory Black Pepper
Kettle Cooked Chili Lime

My husband took a look at all the flavors when I received them and said "this will be fun to review"!  He loves eating jerky, along with my twin sons.  My daughter wanted to try it too and especially liked the Mandarin Orange.  Hubby liked them all, especially the Hickory Black Pepper.  One of my favorites was the Chili Lime.  The twins couldn't pick just one favorite, they loved them all.  We all did agree that Golden Island is by far and no doubt the best jerky we ever had!
