Ya know what’s good? Vegan jerky! Know what’s bad? Jerky made from cows, chickens, pigs, or any other living beings. Animals value their lives just as much as humans do—so why would we want to use their body parts for food when we can eat things made from mushrooms, coconuts, soybeans, eggplants, and other yummy plant-based ingredients? With vegan jerky, you can get your snack on without being a jerk to animals. Check these out:

Primal Strips

Try Thai Peanut, Mesquite Lime, Teriyaki, Hot & Spicy, Hickory Smoked, or Texas BBQ.

Try Pete’s Smoked Black Pepper, Tod’s Smoked Chipotle, Enid’s Perfect Pepperoni, Reuben’s Smoky Carolina BBQ, or Paulette’s Maple Bacon.
