Review: Pineapple Jerky

Our family of 4 loves to snack! I have two daughters 10 and 13 who seem to be in constant snacking mode and a husband who packs his lunch and snacks to take to work with him every day. We love yogurt and granola bars but sometimes a change of pace is wonderful.

I received an email from one of the great guys at offering to allow our family to try out a brand new snack: Pineapple Jerky!

So what is Pineapple Jerky? Is it like dried fruit?
The answer to that is NO! I do not like dried fruit and this was nothing at all like it.

Pineapple Jerky consists of slices of pinepple grown on the island of Maui that are dehydrated and drizzled with honey. The complete ingredient list is Pineapple and honey. That's it!

I don't know about you but it is very important to me that the majority of my girls snacks are healthy and this jerky definitely fits the bill.

So How did we like it?
All four of us loved it!! Our samples were devoured very quickly. The pineapple was so delicious, sweet but not too sweet. The drizzle of honey really complimented the flavor of the pineapple. It was a lot more flavorful that we had anticipated and there was no doubt that this jerky was made from fresh pineapple.

What else can you find at
Beef Jerky, Venison Jerky, Elk Jerky, Turkey Jerky, Buffalo Jerky, Ostrich Jerky and Bacon Jerky.
Here is what I find really wonderful about their products: no preservatives, no nitrites, no msg and you can actually pronounce all of the ingredients. Check out their nutrition facts to see for yourself.

How can you purchase Pineapple Jerky? You can order online at and most of their items include free shipping.
