We're not calling you a turkey. Or a jerk(y). We're merely calling attention to Trader Joe's Turkey Jerky, because it's so darn delicious. Our supplier hand-cuts-boneless, skinless turkey breast meat, then marinates it in a blend of soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, and seasonings for more than 24 hours. The marinated turkey is laid onto screens, put in a smoke house and cooked very slowly, at very low temperatures, then packaged immediately to retain as much moisture as possible. Cooking it this way allows the turkey to cook thoroughly, without drying it out. We've found many other jerky products to be tough and dangerous to your dental work; ours is moist, tender, and darn delicious.
Trader Joe's Turkey Jerky is a high protein (11 grams per serving), fat free snack that's great for an energy boost. It's free of MSG, nitrites, and sodium erythorbate, all commonly found in many commercially available jerkys. We're selling each four ounce, resealable package (the equivalent of 10 ounces of fresh turkey) for $5.49, every day.
