    It’s the packaging!! That packaging is an optical illusion. You see that window thinking that the whole back is full when in reality that is ALL OF IT. You see IT ALL.

    The thing is, the Jerky is x4 bigger (literally a whole piece of stake) except they drained all the liquids out of it and dried it.

    You mean they are EA games but for beef jerky it really should be illegal for them to give so little for an unhealthy snack I don’t understand.

    Seems like 4 to 5$ per pound which is roughly 75% water, so 1 pound gets you around 4oz. So you get more with better quality making it yourself. Between employees, spices, and distribution it seems somewhat fair to charge 6+ for the store bought.

    They sell it by the ounce. You price it by the ounce. Bro for someone as well versed as yourself, how do not understand how food works?! I used to look for jerky that was around $1 per ounce, could only find that price on the big like $11 bags you know? How much do you pay for steak? Someone cooked this shit and put it in a handy little bag that you can take anywhere and you're too stupid to find a decent deal so you're mad at the whole system. Hahaha this is the most ridiculous concept 😂

  • jackcbr600

    An 8oz steak runs around 15 bucks. So you dehydrate that same steak and lose almost 80% of the volume of the meat your left with 2oz of dried meat. This is why jerky is so expensive...

    Well as someone who makes jerky homemade regularly I have a few explanations. one pound of fresh beef shrinks by over half when dried. it takes about 2.5 pounds of beef to make one pound of jerky. it also takes quite a bit of time and patience to make good jerky. not to mention we are in a pandemic and the price of beef has gone up. generally if I have to buy the meat and all the seasonings and sauces to marinade the beef it can cost upwards of 40 dollars for 1.5 pounds of jerky if the meat is not on sale. even more expensive if you buy a better cut of beef. So you have to think logically here. if I spend 3 days on a batch of high quality jerky I'm going to charge for it plain and simple. its not very cheap to make, it takes time if you make it right, and it is freaking delicious! not trying to be a Karen here but conspiracy theory debunked. oh and the reason they have a monopoly on the jerky game is because there is a million restrictions and guidelines you have to follow to sell dried beef. I have looked into it as a possible business venture but sadly I don't think its worth it unless you have millions in the bank account.

    The beef jerky you buy required 3 times the amount of quality beef to produce. So a 3 oz bag is 9 ozs of premium beef. Which explains why it's so expensive - sorry, not a scam.

  • grnsgottaM

    One thing to consider, regarding jerky is that half the weight of the meat is lost in the drying process. It’s still expensive, but worth mention.

    You can do better just making your own beef jerky. The price of beef round is not much more then a price of Jack Link's and you can make 10 times as much jerky then what comes in the pack of any these.

    It's so expensive because of the large amounts of meat you need to make the jerky and how little you get from all the meat. As well as all the stuff they use to make it. We all wish it was cheap. $7 is like... Probably $2 profit a bag. If that.

    I thought you were the guy that knew everything. It’s an expensive process. For one, 2.5 pounds of meat makes 1 pound of jerky. And god damn, I didn’t know I could have gotten away with making this video and getting that kind of views. Lucky asshole.

  • lord simpus
    lord simpus

    the reason why its so expensive is because jerky shrinks A LOT during the whole drying process, there's a bunch of videos about it if u just look a little. those bags are probably about a whole beef filet dried each. and beef is not a cheap product either. its just a bad combo, just eat sun dried apples instead.

    Okay I agree the price is too high and it’s deceptive packaging. But y’all know it takes like 10oz of meat to make 2oz of jerky? A pound of round steak is (Feb/‘21) wholesale is $2.80/lb (probably cheaper for Jack links) that’s $0.175 an oz, so $1.75 for 2oz of jerky (from 10oz). Let’s add another $1.25 for processing, packaging, labor, shipping, marketing, management and executive management. That gets us to $3.00 min. There’s the wholesaler’s markup which is like $1.00 (min) and the final retail markup which is like $2-4 depending on a lot of factors. So $7.99 looks like a fair price once you factor in what it took to get it to the gas station. But thats capitalism baby. Go to your local butcher or make it yourself.

    There is a local butcher joint down the road from my work, shout out to B&D Meats in Green, OR. It makes straight up mouthwatering, fucking amazing jerky. $20 a pound, worth every penny. It did shits on any store bought jerky. Besides that place the other manager I work with makes some really, really good stuff from home, too. He makes it from London broil he cuts himself, puts all these seasonings on it. It isn't dry as hell, moist and so flavorful. Wish I could get these guys a batch of each, they'd LOVE it, I'm positive.

  • xRoSkii

    You want to know why, THIS IS WHY, beef jerky is priced BEFORE the drying process occurs. Beef is over 60% water so imagine after being dehydrated, it becomes MUCH smaller of course. It takes 2.5lbs of beef to make 1 pound of beef jerky. Then factor in all the extra processes that go in making dried meat over just a normal steak. Then you have each brand that can mark it up for their own brand. I agree it's expensive, but there is a reason why and most people have no clue why you get such a small amount.

    Well beef is 75% water so if you make beef jerky out of 10oz of beef you will get 2.5 oz of beef jerky so technically your paying for 10 oz of beef but because it doesn't have much water in it you are getting 75% less
