Vegan Beef Jerky

Vegan beef jerky is alive and well. In this blog post alone there are 4 different brands and I'm sure there are many more. What is your favorite and which ones did I miss?

Stonewall Jerquee is personally my favorite. I like how small and chewable they are. Some have called it dogfood (Katie) but it tastes delicious to me. Let's put it this way, I bought the 5lb Original Mild bulk bag from Vegan Essentials, TWICE! The eight available flavors are Original Mild, Teriyaki "Beef", Tandoori "Chicken", Original Wild, Spicy "Chicken", Peppy "Pepperoni", Hot "Pastrami" and Cajun "Bacon".

Primal Sticks are good if you like sausage style beef jerky, ala Slim Jims. They are long ropes of jerky goodness. The two available flavors are Hickory and Smoked.

Primal Strips are pretty much the complete opposite of Primal Sticks. Juicy, flat and soft. And they are a little easier to fit in your back pocket. The six available flavors are Hot & Spicy, Teriyaki, Texas BBQ, Mesquite Lime, Thai Peanut and Hickory Smoked.

Vegan Dream Jerky is like old school thin jerky that is hard to tear. I happen to like this style of jerky. I haven't seen it in the stores anywhere so you'll probably have to order it. The four available flavors are Hickory Pepper, Cowgirl, Chili Pepper and Teriyaki.

So no matter what kind of jerky you like, there's something for everyone in this jerky world!

*UPDATED 10/18/2014* It would be a crime not to mention Louisville Vegan Jerky Co. as it is my new favorite Jerky!
