Troy, MI (PRWEB) July 01, 2012
Jerky is fast becoming one of the most popular snack foods in the country. There has been a remarkable increase in the number of jerky producers and the variety of flavors available. Cherry maple turkey jerky from Up North Jerky is one of the truly unique new varieties available on the national market. Located in Michigan, Up North Jerky Outlets distributes genuine "Up North" style jerky nationally to retail and dedicated outlet stores and online at http://www.upnorthjerky.com.
Cherry maple turkey jerky from Northern Michigan is world famous for its unique flavor and texture. Choice cuts of whole muscle meat are marinated with special spices then naturally smoked to perfection. Only lean turkey breasts are used. The jerky has just a hint of sweet to go along with the rich texture and delicate flavor. Cherry maple turkey jerky retains a moist and tender texture that sets it apart from commonly available jerky products.
Scott Christ, National Sales Manager for the Up North Jerky Outlets, points out that the success of premium jerky products is a national trend. "We sell far more jerky in Florida, Tennessee and Texas than in Michigan. The flavors and moist texture of Michigan-style jerky makes it a favorite anywhere. Jerky lovers are really catching on to our products."
Up North Jerky Outlets jerky is sold in national outdoors sporting goods stores, but also has a wider consumer appeal. Scott Christ says that there is no typical jerky lover. "You just can't stereotype the consumer. Jerky sells well in outdoors retailers, but it also is popular in convenience stores and a surprising range of other venues. The market demographic is expanding all the time.”
According to Scott, a major reason for the expansion of the market is the introduction of new products like cherry maple turkey jerky. Premium jerky is now seen as a preferred snack food or an alternative to fast food lunches. "A 4 oz. pack of turkey jerky, a piece of fruit and a soft drink are a healthy lunch alternative to burgers and fries. People like to have choices."
Cherry maple turkey has a strong following amongst women. Ben Sanders, Marketing Director with Up North Jerky, says that cherry maple jerky seem to be very popular with the ladies. "Whenever we sample our full assortment of beef, turkey and wild game jerky, women always seem to prefer cherry maple turkey. This kind of breaks the stereotype that jerky is a guy thing. At retail outlets women often buy beef or venison for their husbands or sons and turkey jerky for themselves."
Cherry maple turkey jerky is available in big one pound re-sealable jars and four ounce and eight ounce soft packs. In addition to smaller sizes, two and four pound packages are available for those looking for bulk jerky options. These premium North Country specialties are now available online for direct shipment via USPS Priority mail or UPS.
