There are lots of beef jerkies out there, but none of them, in my experience as a life-long jerky eater, are like the New Primal Beef Jerky. Why? Because a lot of beef jerky is full of processed, fake, weird, crap. Most of them don’t come with insanely delicious dried fruit like this one does. And none of them are, simply stated, as delicious!

The New Primal jerky, on the other hand, can proudly say that it is all natural, hand-crafted, gluten free, and is made with minimal processing.

Today I’m going to give you a review on the jerky, the company, and the benefits of this specific brand. Check it out:

Not Just Plain Jerky

Pineapple jerkyThe New Primal Jerky also includes nuts and dried fruit.

  • Pineapple and Beef Jerky (My favorite!)
  • Cranberries and Beef Jerky
  • Mango and Beef Jerky
  • Just Beef Jerky

This stuff was seriously delicious! I brought a few packs out onto the trail to share with friends and they couldn’t get enough of it. The jerky and fruit are seasoned with honey, lemon juice, garlic powder, liquid smoke, onion, pepper, and ginger. DELICIOUS.


 A Company Worth Standing Behind

new primal

The New Primal is based out of Charleston, South Carolina. It’s run by husband and wife Jason and Kristin Burke with a staff of 5 outdoor-loving people behind them.

As an entrepreneur myself, and someone that loves the outdoors obviously, I’m always looking for companies that share common values, that are grassroots, and that are doing things the right way. That’s these guys. Yes, the jerky is delicious, but the story behind it backs the product that much more.

In Touch with their Food Philosophy

Quoting from the New Primal founders:

Oh, how we’ve over-complicated and adulterated something as intimate as the food we eat – the very fuel that energizes our bodies. And now that we’ve come this far with processed food, fast food, chemically treated, genetically modified plants and animals; who knows what’s safe and actually nutritious anymore? So, we at The New Primal are making our best attempt at simplifying the entire paradigm. Eat like our ancestors ate.

Try For Yourself!

Try New PrimalWhile The New Primal is popping up in more and more stores, you can order directly from their website here. (They have a beautiful website by the way). Each pack costs about $6.99 and they also offer bundles if you really want to go all out (which you should!)

For people like us that are outside working our bodies constantly,  getting stronger, running faster, exploring longer – we have to take care of ourselves. Our diet on and off the trail is a huge part of this. So rather than getting food pumped with chemicals, get stuff that’s going to keep you healthier and take you to the next level. I know it’s a no-brainer, but sometimes we have to be reminded!
