Back in the day, your jerky options were limited to original, peppered, and maybe teriyaki flavors. Today, aided by the boom of The Paleo Diet, there’s a veritable wilderness

of jerky out there.

(Here’s what you need to know about The REAL Paleo Diet.)

According to Nielsen, sales of meat snacks in North America—heavily driven by jerky products, of course—grew 15 percent from 2013 to 2014. That’s good, because now you have more choices than ever before, which include exotic meats, spices, and cuts. But that’s bad because there’s also a lot of crummy jerky on the market.

But we have the solution to stop you from going cross-eyed in the convenience store: We taste-tested bags upon bags of jerky from around the country to separate the standouts from the stinkers. Those that scored highest in flavor, texture, and aftertaste were crowned champions. Check out the winners to discover the best of the herd.
