Jerky sales up


According to this article, the “jerky market” (as in beef and its various flavor variations). Strange. And gross.

The article says that “the growing popularity of low-carbohydrate diets has boosted sales.” More proof that people will believe whatever they want to about nutrition.

There’s no word on any changes in the Tofurky Jurky market.

    The thing I find funny about that is that lots of jerky (meat) has sugar added to it to improve the taste, so it isn’t a low-carbohydrate food, particularly.

    I like the taste of Stonewall’s Jerquee myself, I’m returning to vegetarianism after about 4 years of omnivorism, and I ate their product almost exclusively for jerky-needs (I spend time in deserts and suchlike) even before I came back.

    I have done what u are doing for many years here in CA. I want to assure you that your best prices will be at the downtown wholesale markets or districts if they have them there which I can’t imagine TX not having them. Prices range WILDELY when you sray from the wholesale districts. On the price research, look in hte fone book under frit & veg wholesalers and call for their prices, alot of them around here have web sires as well. All should try out our awesome jerky products on line [URL deleted – sorry, we don’t allow promotion of meat products here. duh.]. we have truly gourmet, hand made stuff
