Vegan jerky you say? Why yes, no need to kill the cow to get the same palate pleasure you used to get from beef jerky. We've tried most vegan jerky's out there and It's Jerky Y'all from All Y'alls Foods may just be our favorite vegan jerky, here's why.
We are always in the market for vegan snacks to take on our hiking adventures. Proteins bars and trail mix can get boring and crunchy snacks tend to crumble in our packs. Sometimes we would bake blocks of tofu to take as snacks but it became a little tricky to pack at times. Turns out vegan jerky is a perfect snack, hiking or not.
It's Jerky Y'all is made right here in the U.S.A. Texas, to be exact. They use certified whole non-GMO soybeans and all-natural flavors for their jerky. Their jerky has the perfect texture, not too chewy or tough, and its gluten-free. The flavors are what really speak to us though.
Their jerky comes in 3 flavors: Black Pepper & Sea Salt, Prickly Pear Teriyaki, and Prickly Pear Chipotle. Being from the Southwest, we really loved these unique flavor pairings. Our favorite is the Prickly Pear Chipotle. It has a nice sweet(almost but not quite bbq) flavor to it but with a kick. The Black Pepper & Sea salt flavor is more reminiscent of traditional jerky. The Prickly Pear Teriyaki doesn't really taste like teriyaki but something sweet and maybe even better. All three flavors are incredible and go quickly once the bags are open.
All Y'alls also offer vegan Bacon Bits which are honestly our favorite bacon bits ever. They are the perfect blend of smoky and salty. They are the biggest bacon bits we've seen and make an excellent addition to tofu scramble.
As much as we love their snacks, we love their charitable efforts even more. A portion of each sale of It’s Jerky Y’All supports the Rowdy Girl Sanctuary in Texas. https://rowdygirlsanctuary.org/
