Jerky's Gourmet of San Diego sent me three bags of jerky and they let me choose which flavors I wanted. It was really tough to pick because I would love to eat them ALL!! I narrowed it down to three and I tried to pick three that were different from my normal plain jerky. 

My first pick was Orange Teriyaki. This citrus sweet jerky is sure to wake up your taste buds. Like any great gourmet snack, the flavor changes as you chew it and soon the refreshing citrus taste will make you feel as though you’ve been transported to a Southern California orange grove. I really love this jerky it is a little softer than the other two that I picked. Its super moist and really does have that hint of citrus mixed with juicy teriyaki.

My second pick was Craft Beer. This flavor is inspired by San Diego, the Craft Beer capital of the world! It packs a bold punch of traditional spices and, of course, lots of premium beer. Jerky's Gourmet of San Diego uses the best domestic pale ale in their marinade to bring the on-tap flavor of hops and barley that will make your mouth water! This flavor is delicious...... if you are a beer lover or not you must try it.

And my other pick was Chipotle Tequila. This flavor starts out sweet and smoky and finishes with bold heat.Jerky's Gourmet takes a lot of fresh chipotle peppers and quality tequila and they pair it with lime and spices for a unique gourmet taste explosion! I picked this one for my man because he LOVES spicy stuff.

They also sell a variety of other flavors that you can really sink your teeth into. It's tough not to eat the entire bag all at once.

Their Black Pepper jerky is covered with large cracked peppercorns, giving it the perfect kick.  Its mild pepper taste and savory spices allow for the grass fed beef flavor to emerge in every bite.  This is their most classic beef jerky, making it the go to for traditional jerky lovers.

Barbecue Mesquite flavor has a smoky, tangy Southwestern zest that is lip-smacking good! Tender and juicy, Barbecue Mesquite uses Jerky's Gourmet's unique blend of spices and their signature barbecue taste to assure this flavor’s place as a constant favorite.
