So Perky Jerky passes the flavor test with an A+ grade. But how's the caffeine effect?
Again, Perky Jerky is surprising. The manufacturers don't recommend consuming more than one two-ounce bag at a time, but the jerky was so tasty that I ate two bags at once. I mean, it's beef jerky -- how amped up could I possibly get from it? Turns out, the caffeine kick is quite impressive. Not only did the jerky sate my appetite and need for protein, but it also wired me awake and made me feel more mentally alert. It had a physical effect as well, as I could feel my heart rate increase slightly.
Maybe it's better to stick with the recommended single bag, but if you're hungry, that might not be enough. One thing's for sure, though: I won't be needing a Red Bull or a Monster today.
