Protein + Energy & a Perky Jerky Giveaway! (closed)

this giveaway is closed

Is it me or do ‘shorter’ work weeks seem like they are longer than a regular work week? Either that or I’m banking on Friday to get here way too soon 😉 (payweek – bam!)

Through my work with BuluBox I was able to try out an awesome line of jerky snacks from Perky Jerky! I’d been on a turkey jerky kick lately and was running low on snackage! At first I thought that PJ (my new nickname for it 😉 was just another line of turkey jerky, but boy was I pleasantly surprised!

* Disclaimer: I was provided additional samples of Perky Jerky to try after I’d purchased it on my own through BuluBox. All opinions on this post are my own.

I jumped online to check out the story behind Perky Jerky – energy-infused meat jerky – and even did a little giggle at their story. Basically the two creators accidentally had some energy drink spill onto their peppered beef jerky and were astounded at the awesomeness they’d accidentally created! High in protein, low in fat and carbs with no added MSG, Perky jerky had Guarana as one of the 67 natural ingredients in its marinade. This helps to make the jerky tender and give it a little energy boost!
 
Perky Jerky then sent me a sample of their beef jerky to try out as well!
I have to agree that the first thing I noticed about PJ and traditional jerky I’ve tried was the tenderness – not rubber-rip-your-teeth-out-tough like other jerkies.

These bad boys came with me to the beach for some healthy snackin’!

Verdict: I’m definitely an immediate fan! I really dig the flavor (full of flavor for both the original Turkey and Beef but I SO want to try their Hot & Bothered and Sweet & Spicy and Teriyaki flavors too!) There’s not a huge jolt of energy or any jitters at all and it’s more of just an enjoyable snack with added benefits! I also love how there’s NO preservatives and NO nitrates as well!
Now, I want to share the Protein + Energy love with one of my readers!
I’m giving away a Turkey or Beef Perky Jerky gift caddy valued at $30!

    i think my comment messed up while entering the contest… anywho, our friend brought Perky Jerky on the flight to San Juan, which is how we ended up trying it. Ermahgerd. Soooooo delish! Ever since, I don’t have any desire to eat any jerky that isn’t of tha Perky. BOOM!
