Out shopping a little while ago. And found this at Walmart at Kill Devil Hills, NC. Never seen this in NY.

Jack Links is a good brand. I would be surprised if you didn't like their products.
Bacon jerky is not super common but yeah exists and is also expensive lol.
Hope you enjoy! :)

I like their jerky. So, I'm hoping this will be good as well. It's amazing things you see in stores from different states. Harris Teeter has Philly cheesesteak pringle potato chips. I left that on the shelf!

Hopefully you also went to Brew-Thru and stopped at an ABC store. Good prices on Bourbon.
Oh yeah! Love the brew-thru. Got a case of Stella for 21.50. Harris Teeter wanted 16.00 for a 12 pack.
ABC? What's that? Lol!

I like Knobs Creek. And the price is much better. Ann does the Jager. I do too. But I like collecting their swag.

Just tried a piece. Not much different than a piece of limp cooked bacon. Not firm. Or chewy. Good taste. But not worth the cost IMHO. Two thumbs down from me.

The Jack's products are all over the place but I don't think I've ever seen bacon. Sounds yummy. I'll probably be on the lookout for it.

Knob Creek has been one of my favorite bourbons for a LONG time. It's a fantastic bourbon and at a very reasonable price point compared to brands like Booker's.

If you see it. Try it. I just feel the bang for the buck isn't there. But. Store bought jerky seldom is. What are you paying for a 750 of Knob Creek your way?

Knob is usually in the $30-40 range around here. I like the Rye a lot. If you have some time drive down to Hatteras. The lighthouse is cool, but also the drive over Oregon Inlet, Bodie Lighthouse and Rodanthe area. Ocean on one side, sound on the other. Way less people down that way. Bernheim Original Bourbon is another good one I found out there this summer.

We have Hatteras planned for tomorrow. Didn't know about the Oregon inlet. Thanks for the tip.

I tried Jack's bacon jerky; agree with the opinions here. Also like Knob Creek, but I've stayed far away from Jagermeister since about 1985.

On a tangential note, I just picked up a 1 lb. bag of Oberto's beef jerky at Costco for $15.99. I can't make it for that.

That's a good price. Though. I've always wondered how they could sell it for that price. I understand buying beef in bulk probably helps. But still I wonder about the cuts they're using. But hey! Guess what I have in the center consul in the truck? A pound bag of that. Cost me just shy of 18.00 though from BJ's. It is pretty darn good!
