World Kitchens Teriyaki

World Kitchens teriyaki beef jerky is one of the more popular brands of teriyaki beef jerky. World Kitchens different products include Old Fashioned beef jerky, Brown Sugar beef jerky, Peppered beef jerky, Hot & Spicy beef jerky, beef pepperoni sticks, and of course Teriyaki beef jerky. Teriyaki flavor sells in one pound (16 oz.) bags and is sealed in a resealable bag to keep in freshness. This is a USDA inspected and approved jerky and can be dry stored, you don't have to refrigerate it. Many homemade jerkys are not USDA inspected. Of course usually they are still safe just keep it in mind. World's tereyaki is made of natural beef but different companies have different definitions of natural. These are lean strips of beef and are not formed or compressed. Worlds Kitchens offers free fast 2 day shipping on orders of six packs or more. The flavor is less strong than most teriyaki brands. WKs takes pride in great flavor and not being too tough or too dry.

Ingredients include brown sugar, sugar, salt, soy proteins, papaya juice, vinegar, powdered onion and garlic, and soy sauce powder, among other ingredients. 1 oz. of World Kitchens Teriyaki Beef Jerky contains 80 calories and 1 gram of total fat (saturated and trans fat), 11 grams of protein, 7 grams of sugars, 20 mg of cholestorol, and 580 mg of sodium. There are 16 servings in a 1 lb pack. All orders are shipped priority 2 day shipping but again if you order in units of six (6, 12, 18, 24), shipping is free which is a pretty good deal. When you order there are no fees or club memberships and your order is booked noon on weekdays and shipped same day. They promise to always stock fresh jerky. W. Kitchens teriyaki jerkys come in a blue bag that is thicker and larger than most jerky packaging. Many brands don't have as much as a pound of meat contained in one bag. World Kitchens accepts paypal, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, and e-checks. As of this post, they're getting jerky to your door within 2-3 business days. The price per ounce, depending on where you buy or order it, is around .60-.70. Also keep in mind that this brand may be available in your local grocery store. As far as I know, Walmart does not carry teriyaki flavored (at least mine doesn't and I haven't seen it at any other ones). Many online customers seem happy with this product just by reading the reviews but of course you'll get the negative reviews as well. One customer says that the teriyaki flavor tasted old and like liver, despite the expiration date. He also said it fell apart in his mouth. The package says that the jerky is made in Brazil and is distributed from the U.S. Some are turned off by this because they're unsure of Brazilian beef. Other customers claim that the jerky is of different colorings, some brown, some red. Most of the opinions on the teriyaki-flavored jerky are positive but some prefer their other labels. This is normal. If you don't like World Kitchens jerky, please contact them, as they encourage feedback, usually a good sign from a manufacturer.
