Perky Jerky Offers Energy Boost
Denver, Colo.-based Performance Enhancing Meat Snack Co. introduces Perky Jerky, an invigorating caffeinated beef jerky combining premium strips of peppered beef with an energizing additive – caffeine derived from guarana. In fact, each package contains roughly the same amount of caffeine found in two cans of a popular energy drink.
More than three years in development, Perky Jerky is a culmination of its creator's quest to formulate the world's best tasting beef jerky with a boost of energy found in no other jerky product. It is the first energy jerky to be approved by the USDA, and it is already developing a grassroots, cult following amongst fans who insist, "it's addictive."
"Creating an energizing meat snack was only half the battle," says Brian Levin, the entrepreneur who developed Perky Jerky. "I refused to compromise on both the taste and the effect so it took several years of trial and error to find the perfect combination of flavor and kick," he adds.
At just 90 calories per serving and with 22 grams of protein, Perky Jerky is also a healthy low fat snack. It is flavored using a 100% natural additive derived from Guarana, a plant native to South America, and found in many energy drinks and herbal teas. "We chose Guarana because of its smooth, reliable and predictable energizing properties. It's an all natural way to give an energetic punch to the tender, peppered beef that we use to make Perky Jerky," says Levin.
Perky Jerky is available online (www.perkyjerky.com) and will soon be available in stores nationwide. Retail price is $4.99 for a 2-oz bag.
