Celebrate National Jerky Day with Golden Island Jerky


June 12th is National Jerky Day, and in celebration of Jerky, we’re featuring the tasty snacks from Golden Island Jerky. When the people at Golden Island Jerky told us about National Jerky Day, we had to see for ourself why Jerky deserves its very own holiday.

Golden Island Jerky Sampler

I’ve had a lot of different types of jerky, and I’ve even made my own deer jerky before. Golden Island Jerky definitely holds its own with other jerkies I’ve tried. It’s a natural consistency like jerky you would make at home, and I was really surprised by how good the pork jerky was.

I’ve never tried pork jerky before, and the Korean Pork was particularly tasty. All together, we sampled 6 flavors of Golden Island Jerky. It’s not quite National Jerky Day yet, but it felt like it when the samples arrived.
