Well, ladies and gentlemen, today is National Jerky Day and it’s time to really enjoy those dried pieces of meat that are a protein-packed gas station staple. Yes, it sucks that you pay a solid five dollars and change for a grand total of three gargantuan pieces of dried teriyaki goodness and crumbs but it is well worth it. Jerky is one of those snacks that is always a solid choice anytime it is around. I mean seriously, how could you not love dried meat that comes in almost in any flavor you could think of? Jack Links is an absolute godsend to this world.
In that case, I may have to go get myself some beef jerky for tomorrow and feast like an absolute king. Some of the only downsides are that it can be tough to chew at times, and it gets stuck all the way in the back of your mouth. Don’t you just love it when you’re finished with your three pieces of five dollar meat, half of it gets stuck, and then it’s a pain in the butt to get rid of?
Forget just beef jerky, bacon jerky is an absolute gift from God. The fact that it even exists is a miracle and whoever invented it needs to enshrined in some sort of Hall of Fame. Bacon is amazing, jerky is amazing, so why not combine the two?
Now I’m getting really hungry just thinking about all of the different types of jerky in this world. The options are endless. Please take advantage of this day. It only happens once a year and it’s the day that you can truly appreciate the goodness of jerky.
Mark it on your calendars for future reference, June 12th, a day that the world can come together and celebrate dried meat!
