Soy, ginger, a little onion and a whole lot of perfectly smoked beef. That’s Jack Link’s Teriyaki Beef Jerky. It’s definitely the best of East meets West.
I am a regular subscriber of this “Jack Link’s” beef jerky terriyaki. This morning, I opened the new box from Amazon and found that there are only 9 bags in the box while it supposed to be 10. I used to trust Amazon and this is the first time that I check the quantity in the box. Since the inside box is open, so someone might have taken one during the packing process because s/he loves it so much but I hate to lose one bag of my Jack Links beef jerky!!

Good stuff….but. I’d gotten some at Walmart but didn’t really pay attention to the price (for one bag). I enjoyed it so much that I searched for it on Amazon (in bulk) and ordered three different flavors. I happened to be in Walmart the next morning and discovered to my surprise that it was significantly cheaper there. (Walmart $3.50 for a 3.5oz bag, Amazon about $23.00 for ten 1.5oz bags – almost 50 cents an ounce more from Amazon plus you have to purchase it in bulk). I find that I tend to order blindly from Amazon when I’m actually purchasing from Amazon and not a third-party vendor because I’m so used to fantastic savings. This was a bit of a wake-up call. I will give kudos to Amazon for their customer service policies, though. I was able to cancel my order relatively hassle free.

What a rip off. We opened the bag and a day later there was wispy white mold on it. The whole bag had to be thrown out. It even smelled a little “off”. You’re better off buying it at the store.
I’m a former Marine, got out after 8 years, did two tours in Iraq and one in Afghanistan. I was first introduced to beef jerky during MCT (Marine Combat Training)…which is where you learn warfighting techniques. For those LONG, sweaty, depressingly hot days in NC…this was an excellent snack. Beef Jerky is nutritious, low in fat content and tastes great! It also is a great chewy snack for those ‘hurry-up-and-wait’ days. Perhaps the biggest benefit for me was the salt….if you’re out in the sun all day, you lose a lot of sweat….the Marine Corps motto should be ‘drink water’…but as for electrolytes/ salt….this snack does an excellent job. I love the peppered taste…probably because I’m Jamaican. The 1.5-ounce snack size fits perfectly in your pocket and works out to be about half the price you’d pay at the gas station (thanks Amazon). I have a couple of buddies over in Afghanistan and I sent each two packs….for them and to pass around to their troops…they love it.
For a healthy snack (especially if you’re very active and sweat a lot)this is a great product.
If there was one complaint….I wish the desiccant that is inside every bag was somehow shaped differently…..if you grab a handful in the bottom…you’ll never know that you grabbed the desiccant too….luckily I’ve been able to catch it!
I read the reviews and took my chances and bought a bunch. I am so disappointed by the sweet, lacquered Chinese bbq pork like beef jerky with an overwhelmingly raw garlic/chili favor. Yes, the pieces are moist but in a preserved radish way with smallish, flattened pieces. It just doesn’t have the premium beef jerky heft where you can separate the pieces along the grain. Don’t expect premium beef taste and texture but rather a product processed more in the Chinese restaurant baking soda, tenderized fashion. I truly regret my purchase which I probably couldn’t give away.
Jack Links is really good one of the bests and its actually real meat haha,I dont have to pay for it I get it for free because my dads company sells it and he gets free stuff from them all the time but if I didnt get it for free I would pay full price for it!
Unfortunately this is a very poor representation of Jack Link’s Beef Jerky. The bags are small and the jerky is in very small pieces and crumbs. It looks like scraps or left overs. No piece is larger than 1/2 inch.
If you’re not into a healthy lifestyle, get these – they are DELICIOUS! “You can’t eat just one!”
It contains MSG and other “stuff.” – You’ve been warned! It’s very delicious, though…
Bought this thinking it cheap and more convenient, but i was wrong. The meat in the package seem dried and old. The price was also higher comparing to my local samsclub.
I like it when the meat is more tender and moist. And this doesn’t deliver that. 1 star.
The price was very good, but I guess I know why. I gave it 1 star because it’s low in carbs and another because it’s edible. There is a distinct foul odor when you open the bag for the first time. After airing the bag out, the first piece I tasted was like chewing shoe leather, dry and chewy without much flavor. After the 2nd piece, the meat began to leave a bad chemical aftertaste. I understand everyone’s taste buds will be different so do yourself a favor and buy a small bag of this at Walmart before getting the big bags here.
28.99 dollars for one pack? Are people stupid, you can buy these at the neares supermarket for less than 28.99, aybe 7 or 8 dollars, but not 28 for one pack.. I know is easy to buy online, but buying this, is just playing lazy!

I only have one major issue. Because of the texture of jerky in general it really gets stuck in your teeth and becomes a bit of a chore to eat.
Jack Link’s Beef Jerky, Peppered, Mega Pack, 10-Ounce Packages (Pack of 2)
This order took five days to deliver and this is Florida with high humidity and high heat. Upon receipt I opened each package because I always place in my fridge in gallon zip locks. I ordered two of the mega two-packs and three of the four were fine. The fourth was FULL of mold which was visible through the packaging. I am seriously disappointed (and grossed-out). No returns/exchanges means I will NEVER purchase foods items from Amazon again.
Update: After figuring out a way to contact Customer Service despite their policy of no returns on food items, they credited back 1/4 of total purchase price and offered free next day shipping for this item (which I will not use). Never again.

So I have been hanging with a top player at the world series of poker and I purchased 2 packages of Jacks Links beef jerky. These 2 purchases were the worst possible way to spend my money. The meat was so dry I was not sure if I was eating dried rat tail or beef jerkey. The “meat” caused sickness and lock jaw. Jacks links is as good as scraps off leather shoes. It was pretty incredible of them to sponser the WSOP but provide poor quality food at a ridiculous price.
The packs are really small. I thought I was saving by buying in bulk, but it was not a lot for the money. As usually the beef jerkey tastes great.
I can’t always get to the store on my bicycle, so it is quite handy to use Amazon & order something I hanker for. The beef jerky, high in protein & low in calories, fat & carbs, absolutely hit the spot when it arrived nice & quickly!
This is supposed to be “Sweet & HOT” beef jerky. It’s sweet, but it’s not HOT. It’s not even hot. If you put the entire package into your mouth all at once and chew, there is no way you are gonna taste hot. This beef jerky has about the same hotness as a small package of sweet and sour potato chips. If I had ordered sweet beef jerky, then this would get 5 stars. But I didn’t want sweet beef jerky. I wanted sweet and HOT beef jerky. 3 stars because at least it is edible. But it will probably be a gift to my friend, with a BIG disclaimer about the HOT.
The jerky itself is very good quality. The only problem is how much pepper they load onto these pieces. It’s so much that it burns my mouth and I can’t even taste the jerky, all I can taste is strong pepper. Then it gets into the back of my throat and burns sometimes, or might get stuck in my teeth, all making for a very unpleasant experience!
This double pack was delivered promptly. I took advantage of the auto-ship subscription which discounts the order from $20.89 down to $17.76. I discovered after the fact that the same size package can be purchased at Wal-Mart at the same cost as this discounted price.
This is probably the best mass-produced beef jerky on the market. It isn’t too tough or dry like cheaper brands, isn’t too sweet or spicy either. Only problem is that as a snack I feel it isn’t overly healthy. (It has MSG, sodium nitrite and a lot of sodium). However it is a low-fat, high-protein food, and very tasty.
This is my second order of Jack Link’s Beef Jerky, Peppered, Mega Pack from Amazon due to lower price than other stores and I hit the jackpot. You can see the pictures I upload for this product. It has mold all over, which even can be seen from outside the bag. Unfortunately I did not see it and put one in my mouth. Few seconds afterward, the taste was so strange and my friend, who was about to eat, stop me from swallowing. Try for yourself, but please be careful.
I bought eight packs. Seven of those, I hope, were in good condition. One of them looks darker and has mold on it. I didn’t notice that after I ate two pieces… That was disgusting!! It says on the package the jerky will be good until 2013. I guess the company is wrong.
I complained to Amazon CS. After 5 minute they decides to give me refund. This is probably all that Amazon can do, but I will not buy any kind of food/snacks on Amazon anymore. And I will not buy any Jack Links product on line or in store. Their quality control is really doubtable.
MOLD ON JERKY!! Be aware!
I got the peppered flavor and it tastes awful. It’s spicy as heck but the pepper taste is so overwhelming that it totally ruins it. I got through about half a bag and not more then 2 pieces at a time. Totally disgusting. I like beef jerky and Jack Link’s especially, just not this flavor.
Anyone who is a health nut may not like this because it’s loaded with MSG, though I think most beef jerky is.
I have been trying to find a good brand of jerky that I don’t have to order online. I finally tried Jack Link’s original. Way too sweet, doesn’t taste like meat, and most of the pieces don’t have the texture of meat. At times, I thought I was eating plastic. Or some soy meat-substitute. I couldn’t even make it through the whole bag. I miss the original Pemmican…, before ConAgra sold the brand and it got ruined…
I ordered the Original Beef Jerky, 3.25-Ounce Bags (Pack of 4) and I got it today. But after I opened the box I noticed that there are only 3 bags in the pack, and the pack is opened already. Very disappointed with this order! I have shopped through Amazon for many years, and this is the first time that appeared a problem.
We buy a lot of Beef Jerky and usually Jack Links. But, I have to say that Amazon charges a LOT more than grocery stores. You can get this same bag at the store for $8.00 and it is very fresh there, not anymore on Amazon. Disappointed. Wont be buying any more here.
Maybe they dont put enough of the “white” products savers in the bag. The jerky was stale and hard in both bags. Go with the smaller bags for basically the same cost when you add up the total ounces. Wont be getting the bigger back again from Amazon!
Purchased this jerky with S&S discount after reading some good reviews and was very disapointed with the quality of meat. About 80% of the pieces were very dry and hard – note that some of the package was good (primarily in the middle of the package) and some of it was too dry.

This is such a delicious bag of Peppered Beef Jerky. I love having a big bag of it to snack on whenever I feel like it. What a great product!!
There is decent value in the product and the packaging is first rate. However, the jerky is almost rock hard making it difficult to chew.
