Did you know that beef jerky has its own holiday?! Not any old holiday, it has its very own national holiday! June 12th is National Beef Jerky Day! Sadly this sacred day only comes once a year, but when it comes we like to celebrate it!
While this is a newer holiday with its inaugural date marking back to June 12th of 2012, we still know its importance! This dried meat snack has grown to have immense popularity today. In the salty snack universe jerky is the fourth highest grossing product. This delicious snack outsells those popular salty snacks, such as popcorn and pretzels! Also there is no need to categorize it as a “guys snack.” Almost as many women snack on this delicious treat as men do.
Don’t know much about jerky? Well I will tell you! Jerky is the perfect snack in many different ways. This delectable snack is jam packed with protein and is also low in carbs, calories, fat and zero trans fats. Snacking takes up over 25% of your days calorie intake so if you are keeping an eye on your waistline there is no need to worry about this salty snack food.
It would be easy to grab any piece of jerky and call it National Jerky Day, but we know you are better than that! When celebrating this day go with the very best! Go with Jack Link’s!
